Contact: 1-856-296-9258

I received a call from a guy who had lost his gold wedding ring of 44 years of marriage on the beach during his morning swim. he stated that he had taken the ring off and put it in his hat on his T shirt on the beach while swimming. After swimming he picked up the shirt and hat but forgot about the ring inside and it disappeared into the sand. Fortunately his daughter did a quick internet search and also checked with the beach patrol and came up with my information. A couple hours later I was greeted by his wife at the beach house and we walked up to the beach location. By now the beach was busy and I asked for the client to remove their chairs and towels from the area to begin my search. After about 10 minutes my metal detector sounded off and the ring was in my scoop! An immediate applause was given by the onlooking beach crowd and the very happy couple of 44 years marriage. Another happy customer!

Lost Silver & Gold Ring Found In South Bethany Beach Delaware

from Lewes (Delaware, United States)
Contact: 1-302-245-8795

On 07/08/18, I received a call from Shanti requesting my help in finding her silver & gold ring that had been lost on the beach in South Bethany Beach Delaware. Shanti asked if I was available to come to the beach to search for her ring right away because the tide was coming in. I told Shanti that I would be at the beach in about twenty minutes to look for her ring. When I arrived at the beach, Shanti told me that she had placed her ring in a pocket of her shorts which had been laid on a beach chair. Shanti said that the beach chair and the shorts had been moved from their original location on the beach to a second location and that after the chair and shorts had been moved her ring was no longer in the pocket of her shorts. Shanti said that the ring could be in the sand at either of the two locations. I began the search for the ring at the original location and as I started to swing my detector the ring revealed itself buried at about an inch in the sand. The ring was recovered and returned to its rightful owner. Shanti was delighted to have her ring back.

On July 7th i received a message from Edward Cropski aka/ N.J. Lost Ring Finder about a lost wedding band in Sea Bright NJ. Ryan and his wife were relaxing and enjoying the day when at some point Ryan went into the water and while wading/body surfing during high tide, he watched his ring come right off his finger as a wave came in. He reached out to Ed who then sent him my way as i was closer. It was lost on the 6th, I went out there on the 11th for the 2am low tide and based on map images and a video his wife took of where they were at the time i was able to find it in about 2hrs of searching. They were very happy to hear that i had found it when i sent him a picture and could not believe it!. He told me from now on it is not going to the beach with him again! Another happy couple!

Out early this morning for a little Water Walking and in waist deep water I saw what looked like an Apple Orchard making my metal detector scream in my ears “Dig Me” and so I did. To my surprise there was a cell phone with two “Apples. on the outside of a LifeProof case and a dog looking out of the screen on the other side. While looking at the dog I could here her saying “Thanks for saving me from that watery grave. I want to go home now!” Come to find out the dog’s name was Debbie.

Well being that I know almost nothing about these new cell phone, I asked Jim (my detecting buddy) and he Googled how to return a found cell phone. Nothing seemed to work. As customary Jim and I stopped for our usual cup of coffee and pastry after a morning of detecting the local beaches. Upon returning to the car the cell phone had a display of Papa Called. Jim with his magic fingers got to a screen of the Locked phone that let him Call Back – Popa without having to have the password to unlock the phone.

Within the hour Popa and Nana were standing in my yard relating stories. It was James’, their grandson’s, cell phone. He had lost it the day before. And as the phone was under water all calls to the phone went directly to voice mail. The calls made last night went unanswered. The phone was returned with a bit of a charge left and a small amount of water removed from the LifeProof case.

Popa, Nana, Jim and I are all very glad we had a chance to meet and make James’ loss just a story to be passed along, thanks to a TheRingFinders member, even without contact for help.

Ring lost in La Jolla Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

What I thought was going to be an easy search and return didn’t exactly work out that way. I’ll let Edie tell her story……….

“We called Mark after hunting for 5 days for my ring.  One evening I was tossing out two old oranges into the ivy-covered hillside behind our house and above our back patio.  My hands were a bit wet and unfortunately this loosened up a very special ring that I’ve worn on my index finger for over 20 years.  So when I was throwing out the second orange – my ring flew off along with the orange! Horror of horrors!!  I only saw it like a split-second whir going off slightly to the left of the two oranges. Didn’t see exactly where it landed, only an approximate area.  We hunted for several hours that night, and then on and on for 5 days, including after we bought a Pin-Pointer metal detector. The vines are very thick, though not too deep underneath them, and the vegetation has been there for decades on a rather steep hillside….  Mark looked everywhere for over an hour, even trying all of his highly sensitized equipment and doing a simulated test of my throw to approximate where the ring might have fallen.  He was very patient and calm the whole time, but even he was finally ‘running out of options,’ as he said.  Then he went up the hillside one last time, and further up and further to the left than we had ever considered it could go.  There it was lying on the ground in perfect condition, not even encased in dirt.  I had not expected to see the ring ever again, but Mark persisted in his search and continued to look beyond where we thought it could be.  We are very grateful to Mark for coming the morning after we called him and for being so persistent in his search.  We recommend him highly to anyone who has lost a ring or any other valuable metal object.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself!  The ring was found at the top of the hill in the upper right of the photo. About 4 feet from the back fence. Quite a nice throw Edie! A pleasure to meet you and your husband Jim. Thank you for the generous reward! 

 

 

Necklace lost at North Island Breakers beach Found!

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Vanessa and her two children were spending the day at the beach on NAS North Island Breaker’s Beach. She had with her a necklace that was a recent gift. It was in a pouch, inside a box, then inside her bag. Should be safe there huh? Not with an active 1 1/2 year old toddler it isn’t! Apparently the child had gotten into the bag, box and pouch, finding the necklace and deciding to play with it in the dry sand. Once it was realized what happened, too late, the necklace was nowhere to be seen. I met Vanessa outside the gate so she could get me on the Navy base. We proceeded to the beach where the search area was defined. Lots of dry sand to sift and lots of junk targets to raise and dash our hopes. As you can see, after expanding out from ground zero, it was eventually found and a relieved Vanessa could head home happy. A pleasure to meet you and thank you for the reward.

Lost Palladium wedding band in the bay at Tice’s Shoal Island beach state park NJ Recovered by Matt St.Germain & Dennis Burligame

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

A few days ago i received a call from a woman named Tina. I was not able to call her back right away so she then called my friend Dennis Burligame who is also a member of the RingFinders.com. They recently married in May. While they were out enjoying themselves with friends at Tice’s Shoal in Island Beach state park in the bay his ring slipped off his finger. Dennis went out there the same afternoon to conduct a search. Tina had him about a 100ft+ in the wrong area it turned out. He was unable to find it. So i met up with Dennis this morning to help him search for it. It was a bit cold out this morning so we donned our wet suits and headed into the water. We started searching the area again. While in the water i took out my cell phone to use the pictures they took to try and get in the right spot and narrow down the search area. After about 3 hrs of digging bottle caps and pull tabs along with the occasional coin i had his ring in my scoop!. Needless to say they were very happy and excited when i called them with the news. They met us about 30mins later to pick it up. Love these happy endings!

I received a message from fellow ring finder Edward Cropski aka/ N.J. Lost Ring Finder on Saturday afternoon about a lost wedding ring in Spring Lake NJ. Her friend found the Ringfinders website and reached out to Ed for her friend Vikki. Ed was away so he referred her to me. I called and made arrangements with Vikki to meet that same afternoon to conduct a search. It seems the ring fell out of her bag while packing up for the day. Her and her friend’s marked out the area they were set up before I arrived. After some chatting I began my search. Within 5 minutes I had her ring in my scoop! She was absolutely thrilled and relieved. She is just 2 weeks shy of celebrating her 1 year anniversary. We all took some photo’s and made our way to the exit. I was happy to find it and return it to her!. But the story isn’t over just yet, In a funny twist while walking back to my truck talking, She realized she forget her sandels. She went back to get them and when she came back she said to me ” It’s so odd, You just found my ring and I just found this iphone” I took a look at it and quickly realized it was my phone! It must have fallen out of my pocket after taking pictures. LOL. The customer has now become the finder! I thanked her and when she attempted to give me a reward but i simply said no thank you, We are even! She did insist on giving me something so I reluctantly and gratefully accepted.Another great ending with good karma for all!
