Lost Wedding Ring in Cedar City: Found

Had another thrilling ring recovery this week! Most of the calls I get from directory are up and down the Wasatch front here in Utah but this week’s call came in from Cedar City which is about 3 hours south.

Hayden reached out to me after a couple days of searching for this wife’s engagement ring. Jennifer had left the house to take an evening walk and as she rounded the corner, she felt and heard her ring fly off her finger. Fortunately, she was able to find her wedding band in the street just about 15 feet from where she felt the ring come off her finger. Her engagement ring was a white gold with a halo setting of diamonds. Hayden first went out and bought a metal detector but it was difficult to use. After talking with Hayden, my schedule worked out that I could head down that  day and look for the ring. I got in car around 1:30pm and got to Hayden’s house a little after 4pm with about an hour left of light. We made a few passes along the curb of the road but quickly realized we were too far down the road from where Jennifer had found her other ring. Once Jennifer described where she was, I was able to backtrack up the street and within just a few minutes, I found the ring which had jumped the curb and landed into the tall grass. When I pulled the ring from the grass, Hayden and Jennifer were so excited. Like most engagement rings, this one was very special to them and finding it before they were set to move from the house was causing a lot of stress and anxiety.

After a few smiles and hugs, we went to take some pics for this page and that’s when we had a little plot twist! Jennifer went to hand me the ring so I could get a close up and since it was so cold and the wind was blowing really hard, the ring fell out of her hand onto the street again. Only this time, it landed right in front of us but we quickly noticed that the center diamond was missing!!! Just after a few minutes of finding the ring, we were back looking for the diamond on the street. Jennifer had mentioned the prong on the setting was damaged and needed to be fixed. After about a ten minute search, Jennifer spotted the diamond and all peace and joy was restored lol. I truly believe it was a blessing that the diamond came out then vs sometime in the future where it would have been virtually impossible to find.

So after 3 hour drive down to Cedar City, followed by a 45 minute search, Hayden and Jennifer had their ring back with the lost diamond. I think the great thing about this whole experience is meeting some amazing people and hearing their stories. I got home a little after 8pm that night right before the snow started to fall. Everything just worked out perfectly and so happy Hayden and Jennifer reached out!

Lost Diamond Engagement Ring in Midway: Found

What an adventure! As I was crawling into bed last night, I received a text regarding a lost engagement ring in Midway, Utah at the very popular Ice Castle. Jason found my page while searching for a metal detector to rent and quickly reached out. His good friends (Rachel and Lance) had just got engaged a few hours before while they were here visiting from Florida. The newly engaged couple along with Jason and his wife Lindsey decided to go to the Ice Castle to get some fun pictures and celebrate the engagement. Nearing the end of their time at the Ice Castle, Rachel realized that her brand new diamond engagement ring was missing from her finger. The ring was a beautiful diamond ring with a platinum band. They tried looking for it for a couple hours and at one point had several other people using their flashlights on their phones to comb the area. I can’t imagine the range of emotions going through their minds as they were scheduled to leave the next day (Today) for home. To go from proposing to losing the ring had to be tough!

After talking with Jason, I gathered my gear and made the 40 minute drive to Midway. I arrived around 10:30pm, talked with Rachel and Lance about where they had been. Fortunately the pictures they took helped as those where the moments Rachel took her gloves off to take pictures throughout the night. I started detecting the area as the maintenance crew was setting up. After about 30 minutes, I came across a signal just barely outside the search area. Lance was the only one with me at the time so as I pulled the ring from the snow, he quickly grabbed it and ran back to where Rachel was searching. He dropped to one knee for the 2nd time that day and presented Rachel once again with the ring asking her to marry him! As you can tell by their smiles, it was an awesome way to end the night! Congrats to Rachel and Lance on the engagement & big thanks to Jason for reaching out!

Lost Gold/Titanium Wedding Band in Lehi: Found

Brock reached out to me after I posted a recent ring recovery on my Instagram page. I have know Brock for several years so when he called me telling me how he just lost his wedding band while power washing his 4 wheeler, I quickly headed over to his place to find it. He heard his ring hit the cement but couldn’t find it after a good search. Brock has a multi-tier backyard with several levels. Each level has a rock retaining wall as well so plenty of places a ring could hide. After getting all the info from Brock, I started to search each tier. Since the two tiers had cement, I figured this ring could have traveled a fair distance. After making it to the 3rd tier from where Brock noticed the ring was missing, I was detecting along the edge of the grass and got a nice clean signal. Sure enough, it was his ring! The ring had traveled probably 50+ feet down two tiers and jump two retaining walls. It was a very quick search and since I have known Brock for several years, it was great to help out a friend in need!

Lost wedding ring in Murray, Utah: Found

Weston has been friends with my son for years. Several years ago the three of us climbed the 12,000 foot Timpanogos mountain together. Weston was with his family for the Thanksgiving day holiday. While tossing a football with his nephew, his wedding ring slipped off into the fallen leaves in the yard. Of course, when they searched and couldn’t find it, they contacted me. The 3 inches of snow that fell this morning didn’t slow me down much, and I found the ring under the snow and leaves, pressed down into the grass in the yard. I’m happy to help a friend!

Lost hearing aid in Cedar Hills, Utah: Found

I got a text message from Rod asking if my equipment could find a hearing aid that had been lost in the grass. I have found hearing aids before, so I told him I thought I could. I asked him to meet me at the church where it was lost, and to bring a similar hearing aid so I could hear how it sounded, so I would know what to listen for to find the lost one. Unfortunately, his hearing aids were very small, and my detector would hardly make a peep when passing over the spare he brought. That meant that I could probably not find his lost one. I spent several minutes searching, but finally decided that my equipment just wasn’t sensitive enough to tell the difference between the tiny hearing aid and the random specks of garbage metal spread all over the church lawn. I told Rod that I probably couldn’t find it. I hate giving up, so a spent maybe an hour searching the whole lawn where it might have been lost, methodically going back and forth to search every square inch. As I detect, I keep my eyes on the ground, watching for anything that might be there. I found the tiny hearing aid with my eyes, rather than my detector! As I swung slowly back and forth, there was the hearing aid, hiding in the grass. Rod was happy to have his expensive hearing aid back!
