Rose Gold Promise Ring Found and Returned in Myrtle Beach, Sc.

from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

I received a phone call Wednesday night from a quietly distressed young lady named Hayley.  She told me about losing her rose gold promise ring in the water earlier that day.  This ring was presented to her by a young suitor named Luke.  It was around 8:00 in the evening and there were several thunderstorms in our area, so I told Hayley we would see her in the morning for her search.

I met Hayley and her best friend’s brother, Israel, at one of our local beachfront campgrounds. After following them to their site I got my gear ready for a golf cart ride to the beach. As I was getting ready I was asking about the loss. As it turns out, while swimming in the ocean the day before, Israel had asked to see the beautiful diamond rich testimony to young love. When he went to hand it back to Hayley in the chest deep calm water he dropped it.  Hearing the story I could feel both of their anxieties rising at the thought of it.  I explained that they lost the ring in a mid to high tide time frame, and that today’s low tide was going to be a negative tide. I told them we should find the ring around calf deep at low tide. Israel sure liked the sound of my confidence in the search as he was reliving the picture of the ring slipping from his fingers.  I had both of them rub their left earlobes for luck as we headed to the beach.

The water was very calm as I went waist deep sporting my recently returned CTX 3030. I was happy to have my trusted friend with me on this water search.  I worked a grid back to ankle deep water. It was a little frustrating  trying to deal with the beach goers who kept wading into the water and then stopping in front of me. I was also being stalked by two very curious little boys who just had to know what I was up to. Once I got into the shallow water it was easier to move. I got that familiar “gold tone” on the Minelab.  I sure love that sound. 12:28 at 6” was confirming what I was hearing.  One scoop later I was staring at an absolutely beautiful ring. I looked up the beach to see Israel watching me.  I took off the earphones and rubbed my left earlobe. This got him moving my direction from his beach chair.  Hayley had left the beach momentarily to get something back at the house.  When she returned to the beach I told her that I was going to suspend the search. Hayley seemed hurt by this fact until Israel pulled the ring from his shirt pocket.  Israel was very happy to give Hayley back the ring he dropped the day before. As it always happens, Hayley did “The Ring Dance”. A big smile turned into a quivering chin as she put the ring back on her finger. You know, “The Ring Dance”.  I thought that was going to take longer than the 45 minutes it took.  Darn! Now I have to go back to work.

Israel and Hayley, thanks for trusting me with this search. Thank you also for the reward.  Good luck to Hayley and Luke with the future. And lastly thanks to “Big Jim Wren” for sending this search my direction.

Lost Tungsten Promise Ring Found, Myrtle Beach

from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

I received a phone call from Kaylynn Tuesday afternoon about her fiance’s lost tungsten promise ring. Jake had the ring slip from his finger just two hours before in the mid to high tide waters of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Jake lost the ring in waist deep water. The tide was dropping at the time of her phone call. Time was on her side, darkness was not. I met Kaylynn in the parking lot of the beach resort they were staying and we moved quickly to the beach as she described the loss. On the beach I met Jake and Kaylynn’s father. Dad was sitting in a chair and kept a visual on the area the ring was lost. I had everybody present rub their left earlobe as I began the search. The beach in the area was now dry and made me feel good about our search. Kaylynn and Jake walked me out to the area they thought best for the search. There was a new problem happening as we spoke. As the tide was receding, one of our storm water swashes was cutting a trough in the newly exposed beach right in the middle of our search area. The swash was removing beach sand at a rapid rate. When I entered the running water I soon realized that I was only going to be able to search in one direction, down stream. I would walk down steam in the water for about 35 yards, and return up the dry sand at water’s edge. I went back into the water a little deeper each pass and returned a little wider. I was having no luck. I expanded the grid to include the area where the running water met the ocean water, thinking that where they met the ring would have a chance to settle and sink in the sand. Now in darkness Jake ran to the car to get a flash light. The back light on my detector was not functioning, and it was impossible to see anything in the sand scoop. After an hour I was ready to give up thinking that the search might be easier in the daylight. As a last ditch effort I decided to expand the grid just a few yards farther south just to make sure. Just three feet outside my original grid I got the signal and numbers I was looking for. With the flash light I confirmed what I already knew, there was a “ring in the scoop”. I walked to where the young couple was sitting and told them that I was calling off the search…wait…wait… because I found Jake’s ring. Jake was a little reserved, but Kaylynn did “the ring dance” as I returned Jake’s ring.

Kaylynn and Jake, thank you for the reward. I wish the both of you much happiness in your future.

Lost Gold ring Carlsbad beach

from Carlsbad (California, United States)

 

TheRingFinders metal detecting service found and returned a lost Gold wedding ring at Carlsbad Beach.

It was 10:45 Friday night when I had recieved a text from Chris who just lost his Gold ring on the shoreline. I called him right away and He explained the story and exact location of where it may have slipped off when a Wave Crashed onto them at the water line.
I checked the Tide book and knew that it was high tide when this was lost and I would have to wait a few hours before I could thoroughly perform a water search with a Metal detector.
When I arrived to the scene at low tide,I  noticed right away that the Ocean had Naturally pushed in soft sand over the past few days plus the beaches slope down to the waters edge had a fresh belly with seaweed. This means that the Gold ring would be Deep,Very Deep.. So I set my equipment up to the deepest settings and began my search sweeping slowly and listening to those faint sounds. After an hour or so and a few Corona caps nearly 2 feet deep,,I had covered the entire soft slope to only wonder if this ring was down beyond depth of any Metal detector may reach or maybe there’s that slim chance it could be simply buried up in the dry sand?

I figured that I should just scan up above the area and to the entrance of where he walked to the beach from.Soon after griding the dry sand I heard a certain tone on this detector..
I stopped and just kept swinging my coil over the target this way,that way,while Smiling because I knew it…One scoop in the sand,Then out came this Gold Wedding Band that he has worn for 14years.  Thank you Chris for the kind reward.

Im available 24/7 Call Or text me at 760 889 2751. Curtis Cox

Keys and phone recovered at Torrey Pines State Beach

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Elisebeth was enjoying a day at the beach and buried her keys and phone in the sand under her blanket for safe keeping. When the tide started to come in and getting close to her blanket, someone moved it to higher ground, but, didn’t know about the keys and phone. Later when she was ready to leave, she realized her blanket wasn’t in it’s original location. The water had washed over the old area and she couldn’t locate the exact spot to retrieve her belongings. After a Google search and finding me on TheRingFinders.com website, we agreed to meet and conduct a search. Before we started, I mentioned that the phone and maybe her car fob may have been ruined by the salt water, but, she wanted them anyway. After showing me the search area, I started a grid right in the middle of it. After expanding out a couple of passes in each direction, I got a big signal that just had to be it. Sure enough, with just one scoop, up comes her keys and phone. Thankfully, she had the presence of mind to (previously unknown to me) put her items in a sealed plastic bag. Inside, everything was still nice and dry and working. A happy Elisebeth headed home with a smile on her face and not confronted with the ordeal of having to replace everything. A pleasure to meet you and thank you for the reward.

GPS HELPS RECOVER LOST ENGAGEMENT RING ON THREE ROOKER ISLAND

Steve & Audrey took their boat to Three Rooker Island to spend a relaxing day. As Audrey was getting out of the boat, her engagement ring fell into the water! Quick thinking Steve hit the “man overboard” button on the boat’s GPS and marked the spot.  Steve found the SRARC website, contacted Tom Jones who passed the information on to Howard Metts.  Two days later, Howard, Jeanine Metts, Ed Osmar and Dimitur Alipiev met with Steve on the boat ramp for a ride to the island.  Using the GPS, Steve was able to position the boat very closely to where Audrey had lost the ring.  After about ten minutes of water hunting, Howard got a good signal and the ring was in his scoop! Steve was ecstatic, and immediately called Audrey who was overjoyed her ring was found! Great teamwork everyone!

 

Ring lost in the Lake Of The Ozarks Mo.

from Cape Girardeau (Missouri, United States)

Lost ring in Lake Of The Ozarks Mo.

I received a call from Dave on July 4 as I was traveling to recover a ring in Illinois. He said his wife saw the ring fall into the water just inches from the boat dock. What a sinking feeling that must have been!
Upon learning that the location was just 7ft deep with a fairly solid bottom, I told Dave “piece of cake, I can be there tomorrow”. The trip is 4.5 hrs. therefore Dave said he would check for a place to stay the night.
Dave had asked his best friend Bob and Bob’s dad (property owner) to assist me in finding the ring. Upon my arrival we set up the diving equipment and started the search. I quickly realized that there were some adverse conditions involved with using a metal detector. We knew where
the ring went down but it wasn’t sitting there on top of the leaves, twigs, limbs, logs and misc. metal trash. The ring had sank deeper due to being disturbed from previous attempts at finding it!
We soon resorted to drilling holes in my 5 gal. bucket and then using it to bring up mud. Bob and his dad scanned the mud with my spare detector. Upon dumping the 18th bucket of mud they saw the shine of a beautiful triple wedding ring. Their mood changed from frustration to intense jubilation. I drove 3 hrs. to personally return the ring to Erica and Dave who had been at work the last couple days. To finally meet this great couple was a very pleasant experience.
It needs to be stressed to everyone to not disturb the site of a ring lost under water. Just get with theringfinders.com.
I enjoy the challenge of solving problems which others have attempted. I especially enjoy the smiles I get upon returning a very cherished piece of someone’s life.

Lost Wedding Ring… Found in Lone Tree Iowa

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)

I was contacted by the husband of a lady who lost her ring after mowing her yard. She was dumping the grass clippings from here bagger and got caught in the rain. He said she was shaking her hands trying to get the grass and water off and her ring came off too.

He said a friend of his had some cheap metal detectors and they were going to search for it but wondered if I would be available if they didn’t find it. I said yes I was on vacation all week after the 4th of July. So I got the call that they didn’t find it. I went yesterday on the 6th and was able to find it.

Here is what his wife wrote me along with her picture for the book of smiles.

Hi Norm, This is Molly. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for finding my ring. You have no idea how much relief it brought me. I am beyond thrilled and very impressed I have to say after searching that area many times on our hands and knees, as well as going over it with 2 metal detectors. I had little faith that you would find anything.  You have a gift, and we hope you are blessed ten fold.

Thanks Molly and Joe for trusting me to find your ring and the nice reward.
