After getting an early morning wake up call the day before at 4:15 AM to search for Lost Ring that I had found for a young man, then heading off to another site to look for a water main that only took a few minutes to find, I went home made a video, did a blog, spend some time with my wife, had some dinner and went to bed early. I was woken up to a phone call from a young man who lost a gold chain at Kits Beach, it took me a few seconds as I was a little out of sorts and not sure what time it was, he told me it was 10:45 pm. After chatting with Zach I knew it was important that I head out to the beach right away, arriving at the beach shortly before 12 AM I was greeted by 2 detectorists, Steve & Rick. We said our hellos and I asked them if anyone had found a gold chain? Steve said he had found one but he thought it was a junker, I took a look, hard to tell at night with a headlight, still not sure hope it was for him, but it wasn’t the one I was looking for.

I met Zach at the beach and he took me to the area he was sitting, unfortunately, he could not pinpoint the area exactly so I knew I had to put on a very slow methodical grid search. After an hour and a half, my headlight was getting weak so I went back to my car to get some batteries and change out detectors. I wanted to use my dual field to get rid of all the junk in the area and then hit it again with the equinox 800. Zach had brought a rake with him and asked if he could wake up the area that I had grid searched, I said yes for sure, the problem with raking an area to quickly is you might spread out the chain and it will become even harder to detect. When I got back with a brighter headlight and my other detector I was checking out the area Zak had raked and as I was looking I caught a glimpse of what I thought may have been gold.

I walked up to it bent down and pulled out his beautiful gold chain, it was nowhere near where Zach thought it would be, this is very common when people come back at night and try to find the spot they were at originally. I was so happy for him as I knew how much this meant to him. We both were very excited to see it and it took approximately an hour and 45 minutes to find this beautiful gold chain. Tonight was teamwork, Zach had most likely pulled up the chain with the rake to a point where I could see a little glint of gold. It was great to see how happy he was and to see his big smile!

How to find a Lost Ring at Jericho Beach…

I’m having a good sleep and the phone started vibrating at 4:15 AM I checked it and saw a local number, I knew this would be a 911 call for a Lost Ring. The young man asked if I was the guy who finds lost rings, I said yes. He apologize for calling so early and explained that he’s been on the beach for four hours looking for his lost ring. He went on to tell me that he was throwing a stick and the ring came off, he could not find it with the help of his wife and others on the beach at around 11 PM. He took his wife back home and came back to the beach and started searching with a flashlight. Around 3:30 AM he went home and got onto the Internet and found TheRingFinders. After discussing the search for a few minutes a got dressed and jumped in my car and headed straight out to Jericho Beach in Vancouver. Normally this drive would take me over 45 minutes due to traffic but this morning it only took 30 minutes.

We met at the beach and the young man took me to the area where he remembered sitting, however, he would be off by about 20 yards. After close to an hour and 30 minutes a lot of nails, pull tabs, and bottle caps, I finally stumbled onto his ring, he was one happy camper!!! The reason it took so long was because he felt it was in a different area which made me focus harder in that area knowing when I did not find it there I had to expand my grid search because most people can’t put you in the exact spot even though they think it is. The young man didn’t want to be on my video and didn’t want to picture for the book of smiles, that is his choice and I have to honor that, so you’ll see a picture of me with my tired smile and the small platinum ring I found for this young man.

 

After this recovery, I headed out to search for a water main that was buried under 1 foot of earth, that search took me one minute to find.

Murphy’s Law, who is this Murphy? I’m in the ferry lineup to go see my grandson very early in the morning on Saturday when I get a phone call from a young lady who needs my help finding her lost rings that she lost at the beach the day before. Unfortunately, there is no way of turning back to help her so I told her that as soon as I get back Sunday evening I would go straight to the beach to search for her rings.

I know three days is a long time for people not to find the rings as there’s a lot of new detectorist’s out there now, that being said, it is a game of inches and I know the approximate area of the rings, so my chances are most likely better.

The young lady, Yoshi, told me that she couldn’t meet up that evening because she had to work, she sent me pictures and told me the exact location where she was sitting. I was totally fine with that as I know the beach pretty well.

When I arrived at the park I could not use their paid parking as it was closed, because of COVID-19. I drove further down the road and did find a spot and had to walk about 15 minutes to the beach. I figured it was a good thing because less people would’ve hunted that beach because of the inconvenience of parking.

I got to the beach just before dark went to the location she had sent pictures of and started my grade within minutes I found her two beautiful rings that were just inches in the sand, and lost for three days. I was so excited they were still there and more excited to send Yoshi a picture of her rings. We set up a time to meet the next morning.

This afternoon I received a call from a young lady who’s husband lost his ring in shallow water while paddleboarding at kits beach. She told me her husband was still in the water with others searching for the ring. I told her to tell him to relax and that I’d be there in 45 minutes,  I assured her I would find the ring if it was there.

The most important thing I told her was to mark the location where he belived it came off his finger. So many times people panic and forget to make mental notes of the approximate location the ring came off which makes it very difficult as we are looking for something very small in the ocean.

When I arrived and met Sam we talked a little bit and he showed me where the ring came off his finger. I grab my gear and headed into the water and after 15 minutes I tightened up my grid search and ask more questions, there’s a lot of iron pieces, pull tabs, and bottle caps in this area. I knew I would find his ring and I was listening for a very loud short signal in about 25 minutes I got that signal and pulled out Sam’s beautiful white gold wedding band. Sam was spot on with the location the only thing was that the tide went out by the time I got there and the ring was found close to shore.

I’ll never get tired of what I do, I absolutely love finding people smiles and seeing the reactions when I find their ring and put it back in their hand. I also get to meet some amazing great people and Sam is one of them, I have the best job in the world! Thanks for the virtual hug Sam and the kind reward, historical times this COVID-19.

How to find a lost ring, Vancouver Park…

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  778-838-3463

 

Yesterday afternoon I received a phone call from a young lady who said she lost her ring at a local park in Vancouver. She asked if I could come and help look for it, I asked her to make sure to check the area really well before I came out. Sometimes people can find their own ring just by looking in the area they believe it was lost in, after a half-hour I got the phone call to come out and help.

Paula was at the park with friends and family celebrating her nephews birthday, I asked her to text me when the party was coming to an end, she said around 6:30 pm. I arrived at 6:15 and was greeted by Paula, we discussed the possibilities of where the ring could be. I started a grid search in the most likely area I believed the ring could be in,  after one hour and 45 minutes I shifted my search into a bushy area that was very hard to swing my detector, I knew I had to use my pinpointer in this area.

Paula asked me if it was OK that they went home to celebrate her girlfriend’s birthday, I told her absolutely, as I knew I had another 45 minutes of searching left before it goes dark. Shortly after they left the area I found the ring and was able to call Paula back before they drove away.

Surprising someone with a ring that they lost is the funniest part of my job! I love the smiles and happiness it brings to a stranger! This ring was her father’s wedding ring that he gave her before she moved to Vancouver from Brazil. One can only imagine how sentimental that ring is to her and how important it was to find.

Lost your ring? Call Chris Turner metal detecting specialist in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. 778-838-3463  I’ll find what you thought was lost forever. Call ASAP! A trusted service since 1995.

I woke up to an email today from a young lady who said she lost her grandmother’s ring that was gifted to her from her mother. I saw the email came in around 11:30 PM last night, I emailed her back at 6 AM asking if she could call me as soon as she got up. I know it’s very important to act quickly due to the fact it was lost as a local park.

I received a call from the young lady at 8:07 AM and we arrange to meet at the park after she did a search herself for the ring. Twenty minutes later she phoned me back to ask for my help, Beverley and I loaded the car with our detectors and headed out to the park in Vancouver about 40 minutes away. When we got there we met Chloe and she showed us the areas she believe the ring may have come off her finger, even though she found it to be quite odd as the ring fit tightly. We asked Chloe to take the cones and put out a grid for us to search in.

Beverley and I started at the far end of our grid and work towards each other, within a couple of minutes I got a nice loud signal so I bent down with my pin pointer and saw her gorgeous ring. Because of the coronavirus I have to figure out a way to surprise people on my video now because we are not allowed to get close to someone, it’s hard to get the true reactions of the find. I will work on this and make it better as time goes on, so thanks for your patience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chloe Beverley and myself were very happy to see the ring back where it belongs, her grandmother doesn’t even have to know that her granddaughter lost it. The best part of what we do is seeing the smiles it doesn’t matter if you’re young or old everyone’s ring has a beautiful story attached to it and we are so happy to be able to continue that story for Chloe.

Lost Gold Wedding Band at English Bay Beach, Vancouver…Found!

Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Lost your ring at the beach…Call: Chris Turner 778-838-3463 Member & CEO of TheRingFinders.com

First Day of the Year and First Gold ring of the Year…Most of my recoveries start with a call followed with a location but this was different. It was Jan.1st 2020 and I went to English Bay beach after the Polar Bear swim where I waited for dark to start my search of the beach.

I started detecting the beach where just hours before there were thousands of people diving into the cold water to bring in the new year. I saw another detectorist (Steve) nice young man out detecting, we talked for a bit and continued on our way.

I’ve searched many years after the polar bear swim and I hardly find enough to buy a coffee and have never found gold after this event. That changed today, I found a beautiful 18 kt gold wedding band with 3 small diamonds. What a great feeling to see that in my scoop and I had a great feeling that I would find the owner as there was the wedding date and name in this ring.

When I got home I posted it on the Craigs List and when I woke up the next morning I had 4 bogus emails & text messages in regards to the ring…All scams! Then another hunter contacted me with a number of someone who had lost a ring that matched mine. I contacted the man and he called me back a few hours later with the exact details of the ring!

As most of you know I get joy out of returning these cherished keepsakes back to their owners and what a great young man I met today, as you can imagine he was very happy!

How to find a lost ring in the sand, Spanish Banks Beach… Vancouver, BC.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Summer is warming up and more calls are coming in…This call was from a young man who said that his friend lost a large gold ring while throwing a foot ball. These searches are usually 100% successful because they know that the ring came off while throwing the ball.

I told them to relax and I will find the ring, it was almost  a 1 1/2 hour drive to get there, so I hit the road right away.

When I arrived and met the party I was introduced to the young man who lost what I found out was his wedding band, it was a huge one by the sounds of it. As I was getting ready to do the search and after asking my typical questions, I noticed there was a lot of eyes on me!  I knew the pressure was on! But not to worry as I also knew it was a matter of time before I find the ring. I knew I would find it as sand eats up gold, but the gold can’t hide from me and my detector!

30 seconds into the search I received a great signal on my detector and BINGO! I had his huge gold ring in my scoop. I loved the reaction of everyone on the beach as they cheered for the young man!

As always… I love the Smiles!

Lost Gold Wedding Band in Surrey/Langley…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Victim #3 (Lost Ring) due to recent snow storm… I got another call from Royal who told me that he possibly lost his ring while he was scraping snow off his truck. He said there was a possibility it may have been lost in his house, but him and his wife searched his place pretty thoroughly and could not find it. He was at work when he called and asked me if there was a chance I could come down and meet him so he could show me where he was parked. It was bothering him so much at work thinking it maybe on the road somewhere.

I told him I’d come out right away to help him search for his lost ring. Anytime a ring his lost in the snow on the side of the road, its important to get there as quickly as possible to make sure the ring is not driven away by someones truck tire tread. Also you want to make sure you beat the snow plow as it can push a ring hundreds of yards down the road, into a pile of the snow.

I met Royal a short time later at his place, he showed me where his truck was parked and also where he went to another vehicle and where he walked from the house to that vehicle. I started my search where he was scraping the snow off of his work truck, still no ring. I started to grid search from the vehicle furthest away towards his truck, as I passed by the truck that he was scraping the snow off …Bang! found it. Very close to the road!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can watch the video and see the surprise look on his face when I showed him his ring! He had already given up the thought of finding it as it was already 30 minutes into the search.

Metal Detector Rental Vancouver, BC.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

 

Why rent a metal detector when you can hire a metal detecting expert who has found & returned over 500 lost rings to their very happy owners!

Most people think of renting a metal detector when they lose their ring, the problem is if you’ve never used one you can be walking away from finding your ring. Its not as easy as it looks and if you’re a first timer it can be confusing, that’s when a metal detecting expert comes into play.

This call was to find a lost diamond ring that has been handed down from generations, three to be exact. I’ve always said that every ring we find for someone has an amazing story attached to it and how that story ends if we can’t find it. This call was to help find her ring in the ocean at English Bay and how she went and bought goggles and searched for hours with no luck! Thankfully we live in the computer age and people have a second chance to find what they thought was lost forever!

I drove to the beach right away and met the young lady and her friend and they showed me the area they believed the came off. It took me maybe 10 minutes to find and the look on her face was priceless when I showed it to her!
