Mary Ellen contacted me yesterday about an earring she lost in her backyard. She remembered walking down the walkway to her garage when one of the overhanging plants caught her earring and then it was gone. These were her mother’s earrings, so they held a special place in her heart. We talked a bit, I asked some pertinent questions, and we scheduled to meet this morning to search her garden area.

I got to her house, and she came out right away and took me back to the area of the loss. She then showed me how she had been walking on the walkway, and the plants that snagged her earring to pull it off. There was some thick ground cover, that could have swallowed up an earring in a second. I began my search, and fortunately found that there wasn’t a lot of metal in the ground, which I have found to be very uncommon over the years. I had a few good signals, but they were too deep for what I was looking for. I got another good signal, and while moving the groundcover around noticed the glint of gold. I pushed the greenery aside, and there was the lost earring. I walked it right over to Mary Ellen, and she seemed very relieved to have it back. This made her day, and made mine as well to see her smile!

Later Monday night after I had found the ring at Hermosa Beach, Feliz called me about a ring she lost at Manhattan Beach. She had been there earlier in the day, and gone in the water, but before doing so, she wisely removed her ring and placed it in her jacket pocket. After coming out of the water, and forgetting that she had placed the ring in the jacket pocket, she moved things around, and left the beach. It wasn’t until a couple of hours later at the gym that she realized her ring was missing. Someone she knew had found The Ring Finders site on the internet, and told her about us, where she was able to contact me. She told me the ring had special meaning to her, and she would appreciated it I could help her find it. I said I would be there in 30-40 minutes.

When I got there we met, and Feliz took me down to the beach to show me where she had been. The problem was that it was a little after 8:00 PM, and in the darkness it was difficult for her to find any landmarks that could help her find exactly where she had been sitting, so she gave me a pretty good swath of beach to go over. I knew I would be finding quite a lot of things just because of so much sand to cover, and was hoping she would not get too discouraged with the search. As I anticipated I found a lot of bottle caps, foil, some coins, and other metal, but no ring. She looked at photos she had taken while she was at the beach earlier, and we were able to figure out approximately where she was sitting in regards to the towel line, so I expanded my search. For most of this time Feliz had been looking herself, and also coming over to see what I had found, but then she just went over and sat down. I have seen this level of discouragement set in on a long search, but I know from experience that until you have covered every base, the search is not over. I kept working out, away from the slope, when one more good signal. I scooped it up and there was the ring. I grabbed it and called out to Feliz. She jumped up and ran over. When she saw the ring, and identified it as the one she lost earlier, she immediately broke down with emotion. She explained that the ring was her father’s, a man she so adored, and he had passed from this life just one month ago; my heart broke. This ring was something of his that she would wear to allow her to be close to him, and to lose it…well, I just can’t put that into words. What a wonderful day Monday was, and some awesome smiles. So glad to have been able to help Feliz restore her joy.

Jose called last night about 7:00 PM asking if I was the guy who finds rings, and I told him I was definitely one of the guys who help people find their lost rings. He told me his wife had lost her wedding and engagement rings (they were soldered together) at the beach earlier that day. After we talked for while and I asked a lot of questions, I let him know I was on my way, and would let him know when I arrived.

When I got to the beach it was already dark, and they were waiting in the parking lot. I met his wife Esmeralda and we talked about the loss as we walked out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. I found out that she had these rings for 17 years. Esmeralda remembered taking her rings off to put on sunscreen and putting the rings in her shorts pocket. Later as they were getting ready to leave, she shook her pants out, and ring was gone into the soft sand. They told me they had searched the sand for over 3 hours before they called me, so by the time I arrived it had been at least 4 to 5 hours since they knew the ring was lost. When we got back to the area the darkness made it difficult to identify the exact spot they were, and they gave me an estimated area to search, so I began. I kept working my way out pulling up bottle cap after bottle cap. Finally After they thought I was going out of the area they thought the rings might have been lost, I showed them the bottle caps. I had at least 60 by that time, and I knew that for every dig I make their anticipation rate goes up, and then down until people begin to get discouraged. When we discussed the possibilities, Jose and Esmeralda were basically ready to throw in the towel, but I said “look, none of us has to go to work tomorrow, so I will continue”. Even at that they went back over by the parking lot as I continued my search. I searched down the slope, and then began my search in the opposite direction from my beginning search, when after about 5 passes and over 100 bottle caps later, one broken bottle, and a total search time of about 2 hours, one more good signal, and I had a beautiful set of diamond rings in my scoop. I threw away all the trash, and headed back to the parking lot with the rings on my little finger. As I got closer Jose and Esmeralda saw me coming and rose to meet me. I was looking down at the sand when I explained how I searched each area without any luck, but when I touched on the last area, I said, “AND THEN I FOUND THIS” as I opened my hand to show the rings. Esmeralda immediately went to tears and gave me a big hug, while Jose paced back and forth in total disbelief. I know that after all that time of their searching, and then watching me pull up bottle cap after bottle cap, they thought it would not be possible to find the rings, but WE ARE THE RING FINDERS, and if it is there we can find it. What an awesome couple, what an awesome night!

Esmeralda sent the following testimonial:

Steve is an absolute God send! He is professional, kind, courteous and relentless! My husband and I were at Santa Monica Beach where I took off my wedding bands and placed them in my shorts pocket. About three or so hours later I realized that I did not have my rings on and that I had left them in my pocket. When I went to go look in the pocket, which I had hung on our beach chair, I found out with great disbelief, and immediate alarm that my rings were missing. I immediately started to cry and panic, while my husband and I dug through the sand all around us. Hours later we decided to ask the lifeguard if anyone turned any rings in to him but to our dismay, he said no. He did say however, that he had some cards for people who found lost jewelry. I called the person on the first card that was handed to me but the phone just rang and rang. I called again and still got no answer. My husband called the person, Steve Smith, using the information on the second card and he received a quick and friendly answer. We were concerned that it was close to 8:00 pm, which is when the beach parking lot closed, but Steve stayed calm and told my husband that he would find other parking and for us not to worry about that. That in itself let me know how great a person Steve was without even meeting him. We were assured that he would come out as soon as possible -and he did. My husband and I told ourselves that we had a lot of faith and hope that the person that God sent to us would find our rings, but we’re also realistic. The fact of the matter was that it was past 8 PM at night and dark, plus we were sitting on a huge beach- sure we gave Steve an approximation as to where we were sitting, but with so many beach visitors moving around in the sand all day long, what were the chances of the rings been recovered? Our hearts aches knowing that there was a chance that we would never recover the wedding bands that my husband placed on my finger at our wedding a little over 17 years ago. We went through so many emotions that night, including a lot of praying as well as a lot of crying. When we wanted to give up, Steve was the first to say that he had all night and that we would get them back. This gave me and my husband great hope once again. About 2 1/2 hours after calling Steve out, he came walking back towards us and let us know about the specific effort he made to find our rings. Steve let us know that he found a lot of bottle caps and other items that were not our rings. As he talked about the process, I felt a sense of dread and great loss but at the same time I felt thankful that Steve spent so much time and energy really trying to help us. Just then, Steve pulled out my wedding rings from his fanny pack. He kept talking but I couldn’t hear anything else out of his mouth, I just saw my cherished rings and immediately started sobbing and with much gratitude, I gave Steve the biggest hug. He was truly our Angel that night. My husband and I are very thankful beyond words for all the effort that Steve put in to find something that is invaluable to us. If you or a loved one has lost a ring or another item that a metal detector can locate, Steve is your man!

Electronic Mercedes Car Key Lost in the Sand at Newport Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

A couple of days ago I received a call from Terisa about the loss of her Mercedes electronic car key. She had gone to the beach to relax, and laid out her blanket on the slope to the water to enjoy the sun and pleasantness of the ocean. She tucked her key in her waist band and laid down. When she awoke from a sleep she enjoyed her key was gone. It must have come out while sleeping and moving around. She searched, and others in the area helped, but were unable to find the key. I let her know that I would be there as soon as possible.

When I got to the area Terisa was unable to meet me there, so I was going to with the information she gave me to figure out where to start my search. As I was searching a gentleman came over to inform me that a lady had lot her car key earlier and was wondering if I could help. I let him know that was why I was there, and he proceeded to show me where the actual search area was. He was one of those who helped Terisa earlier in the day. I could see the drag marks in the sand where they had dragged their feet and hands in the sand hoping to feel the key. The sand moves so much when you search in that manner, it usually moves the object out of the way. I began my search, and during the second pass got a real strong signal, dipped the scoop in and out came Terisa’s key. She wasn’t able to meet for the return until the next day, so I got down there, let her know that I had arrived, and did a little metal detecting while I waited (always good to keep practiced up). When She arrived she was very happy to have the key back, and I was very happy to have made her day!

Ryan called yesterday. He was at the beach with his friends, and playing beach games. When playing beach racquet ball, he swung at the ball, and felt his ring fly off of his finger. The good thing is that they had not moved form the area, and knew and approximate area of where the ring had come off. I let him know that I would come right away because time is always the enemy in a loss at a public beach or park area.

When I got to the beach I found that parking was crazy, so not to waste time I found a parking spot about 1 1/2 miles away, but on occasions such as busy weekends I bring a Segway MiniPro. I grabbed all my equipment, hopped on the Segway, and was at the spot of the loss within minutes. I walked out to the area, and Ryan showed me what had happened. I explained what I would be doing to conduct my search, and that I would show him everything I found. I began and found a bottle cap, a penny, another bottle cap, another bottle cap, another penny, then boom, a real good signal. I put the scoop in and pulled out a real nice heavy ring. I held it up, and Ryan was very excited. This ring had been custom made for him by his fiancé, and given in preparation for their upcoming marriage. He gave me a big hug, and everyone celebrated the recovery; what a great day!

I received a call from Christina whose husband Bill lost his ring the day before while enjoying the beach with his family. They are vacationing from Sacramento, CA, and to lose his wedding ring of 21 years was not what he expected on the trip. Knowing the County and how they keep this beach clean, we arranged to meet about 30 minutes later.

When I got there Christina and Bill met me and walked me out to the area they believed the loss occurred. I looked around and realized that the beach sifters had not come through the area, so I felt good about the ring still being there. I started my search immediately because although it was morning, people were already filling the beach. I searched the area as fully as possible considering the beach was filling up, but was unable to find the ring. I then let them both know that it was going to futile to continue the search with so many people coming, so I let them know that I would be back to search the whole area again at 8:00 PM when people had gone home. When I returned there were very few people left, and I began again starting from the lowest point on the beach working my up the slope. My first signal was a silver color wedding band, and I thought I had it, so I sent Christine a picture asking if was Bill’s. Bill then met me out on the beach to check the ring. It was not his, it was about 3 sizes too large and made of a different metal than his. He and his son went to get dinner, and I continued my search. About an 1 1/2 hour later I got another good signal, and in my scoop was another silver color ring. I got my flashlight and gave it a closer inspection. This time I could read PLAT on the inside, and it was a much smaller diameter than the previous find.

I called Bill to him know, and he and his son made their was over to where I was waiting. When I showed him the ring he was a bit hesitant regarding claiming it his, until he placed it on his finger and it fit perfectly. He told me he thought the ring was lost forever, and really was appreciative of my effort. I then said The Ring Finders don’t give up! It is so great to know that his joy will be going all the way back to Sacramento.

Lost Wedding Ring In The Surf At Paradise Cove Malibu Found And Returned

from Seal Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-951-217-5101

I got a call late Sunday afternoon from Lisa who had Just lost her wedding ring at the beach in Malibu. I had just come back over forty miles from another beach and was very tired. , Once I found out that the couple were on there honeymoon  I made it no problem to help the newlyweds .  I made plans with Lisa and her husband Mike To meet them on the beach early the next morning to catch The next low tide. When I arrived at the beach just before 5am the surf was calm and it was easy to search at the bottom of the slope in the water. Just after 6am the couple arrived and showed me the area that she lost the ring.  They looked around at the waters edge But I thought the ring would be higher up on the slope being that the ring was heavy gold and the surf  wasn’t very strong.  I did a grid pattern working my way down the slope and after about Fifteen minutes got a deep but solid signal .So I dug down two scoops deep and there was Lisa’s Ring glisening in the morning sun.  Lisa and Mike were very emotional and happy to have thier ring back.  I have to say that out of the many people i’v been fortunate enough to meet and help. They were one of the nicest couples i’v ever met.
