Adam called about the loss of his ring, a ring that had been his great uncle’s, given to him by his late mother. It had special significance, because it was a ring of a fraternal order that Adam also is a member of. I let him know I would be over to do the search as soon as we could coordinate schedules.

When I arrived at Adam’s house, he took me to the area of the loss, which wasn’t real large (assuming it had not fallen down the hill into another yard). Adam had borrowed a friend’s metal detector, a good named brand, and tried to find the ring, but was unable to. I understand why because when I began searching his yard I was hearing a lot of iron, so it must have been frustrating to do the search hearing beep after beep, not knowing what to listen for. It really did not take more than a couple of minutes until I was able to get the tone, and VDI number I was looking for. I reached down, and retrieved Adam’s ring, which was a surprise to him that the search would have been so short. Metal detectors work very well, but the experience of knowing what to look, and listen for is what enables us to be able to pick out the signals that make the difference, and not get frustrated ourselves. It was a pleasure meeting Adam, talking about our lives (we have similar extracurricular activities), and being able to help him. What a great time!

Khrysta called about 7:30 PM in dire need of metal detecting service. She had buried her keys on the beach so that she could go in the water without worrying someone would take them. The problem was that when she and her friend were ready to leave, they packed everything up and went back to the car, a good distance from their original position. Needless to say, it seemed an impossible task to find them again, as there were very few people, or other landmarks to get them back to the exact spot they had been in. I let her know I would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got there Khrysta and her friend met me, and took me out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. As I looked over the area under the light of my headlight, I could see where they had searched, so I began my grid. I made about 8 passes, When I noticed another area where they had searched, and asked if that might have been where they had been. They weren’t sure at that point, but felt that I was searching in the most likely spot, so I continued my grid. It was about 4 more passes, and I got a signal, dug and saw this big pink light stick in the scoop. Khrysta and her friend saw it too, knew that I had found the keys, and came right over. They were very happy. Now they could go home without worry. Glad to have helped!

****’Kerry and her fiancé Ben were attending a beach party at Doheny State Beach Campgrounds, Dana Point ,CA.  She put her platinum/diamond engagement ring on her lap while applying sunscreen. After getting up, the ring fell into the sand. She didn’t notice her ring missing for about an hour after getting up. Even though she knew the small area where the ring should be, neither she or any of her friends could find it.

One of the friends in their group told Kerry to call TheRingFinders. So Kerry called me asking me if I was available to help her find her engagement ring. I was just finishing another search, so I met her an hour later.

It was a happy group of beach people waiting to see if I could find the ring that everybody had tried to find. I just told them that I have the best tool to find rings and I know how to operate it. Fingers do not work well to find rings in the sand. I started in a straight line towards the suspected zone of the loss, when I got a signal. About 10 or 12 of the group got excited when the saw me pause over the signal. I just said, “calm down, this could be a pull tab or a platinum/diamond engagement ring” … Boom !!!  Kerry’s ring in the scoop.  She lit up like a Christmas tree, big smile and relieved that she had her special ring back where it belongs. It’s nice to get an easy search now and then. The unsuccessful searches take hours and we don’t write about them in our blogs.

I got a call from a young lady who lost her rental car key in the sand at the beach. I had some previous commitments, so I was not able to go and do the search until many hours later. She decided to do the search when I was available later in the evening, and I called her when I was on my way.

We agreed on where to meet, and she and a friend arrived to help me locate the search area. We went out, and I began my grid of the sand. It was about 75 feet to each point of the grid, but I just kept to the pattern. After about 5 grid lines, and many bottle caps, the ladies went back to the car they arrived in. That is when I found the key. I walked out to them. They had gone to retrieve an electronic lantern to help them see better in the darkness. I went over and teased that I thought they had left me, and was assured that was not the case, when I held out the key to their surprise. They were very happy, because the rental company had been a bear for them to deal with all day. Anyway, a great end of the day!

Gold Wedding Band and Special Coin on Chain Lost at Santa Monica Beach…Found and Happily Returned.

DJ called me because he had lost his wedding ring and special coin at the beach the day before, and was wondering if I could help him. We talked about the loss, and where on the beach the loss happened, and I was very pessimistic of being able to make a recovery because detectorists ply that area daily, as well as the coverage of the County beach cleaners. I wasn’t giving him much hope of a recovery because of the area he initially told me the loss occurred. As we further discussed the loss, it came to be that it happened in an area further away from his original disclosure. I then felt there was some hope feeling that maybe all of the factors that would have caused the ring and coin to be gone did not add up. We arranged to meet at about 11:30 PM to conduct the search because I did not want any more time to go by, taking away any other possible factors that would make the recovery impossible.

When we met at the beach, DJ, his wife, and friend took me out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. It is very hard in the darkness to locate landmarks, and decide how far a person was from the water depending on tides as well. They gave their best estimate, and I began my search. As I was doing my grid, they were examining further down the beach to see if maybe we were in the wrong area. After about 4 passes, DJ came to me thinking I should maybe work in the area further in the direction they were looking. It was not more than 20 feet away, so I told him that I was searching in that direction, and should just continue the grid so as to not miss any possibility. Then when I got to the end of that grid pass, at about 12:00 AM, that sweet gold sound in the head phones. As I scooped, I saw the chain everything was attached to drape down along my scoop, and knew we had success. DJ’s wife looked over when I reached down to recover the ring and coin, and came over expectantly. I put it behind my back and asked if they still wanted me to move over to other spot, and then brought the chain with the ring and coin out, she just beamed. They were so excited, being married just about 1 year, and thinking the ring was gone forever. It was surely a special recovery, having been lost the day before in a highly searched area. A great night for sure!

Peter called for help, he had lost his wedding ring while he was playing volleyball at the beach. He had taken the ring off and put it in his bag for safekeeping, but sometime during the day, while taking things out of the bag his ring must have been pulled out, and fell into the sand. It was early in the afternoon when he called, and knowing the beaches to be packed because of the holiday weekend, I asked that we postpone the search to the evening when most people would have left, so I could get parking close to the area of the loss, which he agreed to do.

When I got to the beach, I first met Peter’s wife Victoria because Peter was looking for a parking space. She showed me the area she believed the loss to have occurred, and I began my search, I made a few passes working a little out of the search area to insure that I covered it all. Then on about the 3rd pass, got the sweet tone of gold in the head phones, dug and in my scoop was Peter’s ring. Victoria was standing out from me about 20 feet away when I made the recovery, so I held the ring up in the light of my headlight, and she came running over; Peter was not there yet. When Peter arrived, Victoria ran over to him, got down on one knee, and placed the ring back on his finger; a very cool scene indeed. Needless to say Peter was in total surprise that I had found the ring so quickly. What a fun recovery!

Victoria sent the following testimonial:

We truly thank you for your response, speedy recovery of such an important symbol of our marriage, and generosity with your time last night. We were really inspired and touched by what you and other Ring Finders are doing. With so much disappointment and sadness in the world, people like you and organizations founded upon purpose and authentic helpfulness is a wonderful reminder that there is so much good all around us.

Thank you thank you thank you, and good luck in all your future searches!
Victoria & Peter

Tom called in the evening, he had lost his wedding ring at the beach earlier that day. His young son was going to get smashed by a wave, so Tom ran to save him, when in the process, Tom’s ring came off, fell into the frothing water, and was gone. Tom was hoping against hope that his ring could be found, but realized we should conduct a search at low tide, in which I agreed, so we decided to meet at the beach at 5:00 AM to do the search.

When we arrived we found that the beach access had a gate which was closed and locked, and would not be unlocked until 8:00 AM. We could not wait, because the tide would be coming back in and take away a lot of the search area. We decided to drive about a mile down the highway until there was public access, and then walk back in the darkness in front of all the multimillion dollar homes. We finally reached the spot, that Tom identified as to where he lost his ring, and I began my search. Tom drifted out to the water, and about 20 feet into my search I received a nice gold tone and dug. I dumped the sand, kicked it out, and in my headlight was the glimmer of gold. Tom did not see what had happened, so I picked up the ring, and walked over to him (not showing the ring to him), and asked him, “How long do you want me to search for your ring”. He kind of looked at me funny, and then I opened my hand, he couldn’t believe it. He was completely overjoyed, and I was very happy to have made his day. We then we walked back, as daylight was slowly creeping in to the day. What a great morning!

Alejandro contacted me about 8:00 PM asking if I could help him find his lost wedding ring. He had lost it earlier that day, and had a pretty good idea as to the general area where it could be. He originally was thinking the next morning, but I convinced him that even though it was now dark, it would be best to go and try that night. I knew that everything would be fresh in his mind, and any even small markers would still be there to help narrow down the search area. He agreed to meet me there that night.

It was about 9:00 PM when we met at the beach. He and his wife walked me out to the area of the loss. There was a great expanse of sand so it was imperative to get the location narrowed down as much as possible. On most beaches everything tends to look the same, and even more so at night with a limited light beam to lighten the area. Alejandro felt he had gotten me to the spot, and I began my search. I was finding bottlecaps, and tin foil, but not much else. Alejandro remembered having dug a small hole in the sand in the area they had been sitting, and proceeded to look for it. About 15 minutes into my search, he and his wife called me over, they had found the small hole. It was about 3 orr4 inches across, and looked to be about 6 inches deep, definitely unique to what I had been seeing. When I swung just to the right of the hole over a small mound of sand, I heard what sounded like the sweet sound of gold in my ear phones. One scoop, and there it was, Alejandro’s ring. I brought it out and gave it to him. He and his wife were very happy we were able to do the search. Not gone forever, but found and returned. Happiness all around!

I received an email from Kate about a ring her daughter lost at the beach the day before. It seems her daughter Nicole was coming out of the water when a large wave hit her from behind, knocked her to the sand, and with all the violence her engagement ring came off and was gone in an instant. I proceeded to inquire with my standard questions to see how likely there would be of a recovery. Kate explained what she could, and also sent me pictures, drawn, and satellite screen shots that helped define the area. Nicole was not able to be there to show me being a flight attendant, and was gone for work. I let her know that there was a possibility of a recovery, if someone had not found the ring first. I figured that I should go at the lowest possible tide, so I let Kate know I would be going at 12:00 AM to follow the tide down, and would let her know the outcome either way.

I got to the beach right about 12:00 AM and began my search. Because of the low tide there was a lot of sand to search on the slope, so I began my search slowly and methodically. There were virtually no signals, then maybe a penny, a half hour later a piece of aluminum, another half hour another penny. It was a search with little results, but I kept on with my methodical grid. I was wearing my waders, and working into the water, because of not knowing exactly how deep Nicole was when the ring was lost, and to be sure I covered all of the possible sand available. Then 2 1/2 hours later I received a good solid signal. I dug, dumped the sand, kicked it across the open sand, turned my headlight on, and there in the darkness was the sparkle of diamonds; my heart leaped. It was still there! It was now 2:30 AM. I got back to my car and immediately sent off a text to Kate with the words “I FOUND THE RING”. She slept through the early morning announcement, and contacted me later in the morning excited, and asked for a picture. She then let me know Nicole wanted to meet me and thank me personally for the recovery when she came back into town the next week, so I held on to the ring for that meeting.

The next week Nicole and Kate contacted me to let me know that Nicole would be arriving for a one day layover. Her hotel would be in downtown Los Angeles, so I asked if I could meet with her when she arrived at the airport which would be about 20 miles closer and a lot easier to get to, which she agreed to. I made sure I arrived a little early, and we were able to find each other. She even showed me the bruises she still had on her forearms from being knocked to the sand the week before. Nicole was so very happy to get back her ring that she felt was lost forever, and I was very glad to be able to be a help for her.

Kate sent the following testimonial:

My daughter was visiting Los Angeles and lost her engagement ring when she got knocked down by a wave in the surf. She was completely distraught and we tried contacting anyone we thought could help her. Totally by chance, I stumbled across The Ring Finders website and contact information for Steve Smith. With it already being 24 hours after the fact and her having already flown out of the area, I was not at all optimistic.

I sent him satellite pictures from Google maps of where she was, pictures of the ring, and told him what time of day she lost it. He immediately identified that when she lost it was at high tide and said he needed to look for it between midnight and 2 am so he would be out there looking that night. I was shocked that a complete stranger was willing to go out at midnight wandering on the beach to try to find her ring!! I was even more astounded when he messaged back that HE FOUND IT!! I can’t even begin to comprehend HOW he did it (other than he must be an absolute genius) but whatever he did, it works!!

Mr. Smith is nothing less than a true angel and we can’t begin to thank him enough!! Not only did he find a ring that everyone was certain would never be seen again but he did it in the middle of the night when he could have been home in bed asleep!! Mr. Smith, you have definitely restored my faith in humanity and proven that there are still truly good people out there who are willing to put others interests ahead of their own! The world is blessed to have people like you in it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Sentimental Heirloom Pendant Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

RJ called me in the afternoon on a hot day for a search. He had been at the beach the day before, and before going in the water he remembered putting his necklace with pendant into his bag. When he left though the necklace was gone, he figured in the beach sand. This piece of jewelry was given to him by his mother. It had been worn by his grandfather while he fought in World War 2. The pendant had the word LUCK written in Hebrew, and it meant the world to him. I came right away.

When I arrived there was still a lot people on the sand, but RJ believed that it was in an area that people were not in at the time. I did a search the best I could, but was not able to find the ring. I let him know I would go back when everyone had gone home. I got there about 8:30 PM, and began my search. After about 1 1/2 hours, and many bottle caps, pennies, and tin foil, I got another good signal. When I dug, there in my scoop was the pendant, not where he had thought it was, in fact way over to the other side of where he had conducted me earlier. This is the reason it is best to get on the search as soon as possible, because over time people tend to forget exact details that we as Ring Finders need in order to have a successful search. Of course we need to think and search “out of the box” at times in order to have a complete search of an area, and this is what was done this time. I sent RJ a text to let him know I found the pendant and chain, and arranged to meet him at the bar he was at to return it. Needless to say RJ was very happy that night!
