Valuable lost keys in farm field recovered and returned in Garnett Valley, PA

from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)
Contact: 1-484-433-6990

Received an email from Patrick from Garnet Valley, PA on Monday, July 6, 2020. He had found me online via the Ring Finders Directory after searching for hours for some lost keys. I called him and he told me that he was about 1/3 through mowing his 5 acre farm field when he noticed the tractor keys were no longer in the ignition. Its an older tractor and it continued to run with out the keys so he had no idea at what point they fell out. Patrick’s biggest concern was not just the tractor key…there were 11-12 other keys on the ring that were quite simply important and irreplaceable to him. Since it was probably a 2-3 acre search area I called my bud and fellow Ring Finder, John Favano, to help in search. We hit it yesterday and when we got there the search area was intimidating in size and scope. We called Patrick to pick his brain about where he noticed them missing and the search area boundaries. John and i detected in a side-by-side counter clockwise formation and about 45 minutes into the search….BINGO! To say Patrick was surprised to get his keys back is an understatement…he was sure they were goners! The relief in his voice upon having his keys returned made my day.

My third successful recovery in less than 12hrs. A new personal best! While i was at the beach doing my second recovery, Chris called me and left me a message. While him and his wife were at the beach, Around 8:30pm he decided to go for a dip. As soon as he entered the water he felt his wedding ring slip off into the surf. He found me on the Ring Finders website. I called him back and made arrangements to meet him on the beach at 3am. He was in the water about 3-1/2hrs after peak low tide which is helpful. I met him and he showed me the area where they sat. I started my search towards the bottom of the slope as i felt it would be in that area and within 5mins Chris had his ring back! He was shocked and extremely happy and relieved. You see, His wife is pregnant and a week late with their first child!. At least now he had one less thing to worry about! Congratulations and best of luck to you both! Another wonderful ending!

Earlier today i was contacted by fellow Ring Finder Dave Milsted. He referred me to a woman named Patty. While at the beach in front of their condominium building with her husband and grandchildren. Her husband shook out their beach bag and unfortunately in the process her Star of David pendant fell out of the bag somewhere. They tried to find it but were unsuccessful. I made arrangements with her to do a search in the evening. Her poor husband was very upset that he had lost it. I was determined to find it. She met me at the beach and showed me where they were sitting approximately. I searched the area with no luck. I then began to widen the search area and Patty then approached me and told me she didn’t think they were that far. But i told her it can get moved by the beach rakes and also the lifeguard stands are never in the exact spot each day. So i kept expanding the area and after about 30-45 mins, About 20ft away from where she estimated they were sitting, I found it! She was overjoyed! I am so happy i was able to find this very important sentimental pendant for her! I never get tired of these happy endings!

Help with lost ring

July 7, 2020 8:10 PM

Good Evening,

My husband lost his brand new wedding ring this evening at a beach volleyball court in Lendrum in Edmonton tonight. We have been unable to locate it ourselves this evening and wonder when your next availability is?

Thank you,

Knowing how critical this search was I immediately e-mailed her back asking her to call me.  Within ten minutes her husband Mitchell called to explain how he had lost his ring, so I agreed to meet Mitchell within 30 minutes at the court.

When I arrived at the volleyball court the heavens opened up and it poured. The court quickly started to flood. Mitchell told me he just got married to Samantha six weeks ago which made me even more determined that the ring had to be back on his finger quickly.

I told Mitchell to show me exactly where and how he lost his ring! Mitchell was close to the net so his ring either flew ahead of him or to the back of him.  Of course the court is filling up with water making it seem like a soup bowl.

Within twenty minute I received a wonderful tone from his 14k gold ring buried in the sand.  The look on Mitchell face said it all.

Thank you, Mitchell and Samantha for entrusting me to locate your lost ring.

Another happy client!


Lost Ring in Huntingdon PA… Found!

I got a call from Rick who said he lost a wedding band while Kayaking in the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River. The ring was a family heirloom and was inscribed with the date of his grandmother’s wedding. Hunts like these are particularly motivating to me because of the sentimental value of the ring. Like Rick said, it’s not about the monetary value.  The real value is in the significance it has to his family and he would like to pass it down to his kids. The only problem was the size of the search area.

Rick didn’t know where the ring came off of his finger but he remembered three spots where his kayak got hung up on the rocks and he thought he might have lost it at one of those spots. He provided Julie and I with kayaks and the three of us loaded up gear and headed to the most likely spot where the current picked up a bit after dropping down a ledge. On the way there, I got to know Rick a bit and how he fished the river as a kid and takes his family there now. The river is a special place for him and I thought it would be a shame if his lost ring would tarnish that. When we got to the spot, we beached the kayaks and stumbled over the slippery rocks to the search area. After about 15 minutes of searching, I got a good signal and I went in with a snorkel and pinpointer and pulled out the ring. We were so excited and amazed to find the ring with such a large area to cover. Rick was such a nice guy and I was glad to be able to preserve the good memories the river holds for him.

Joe was spending a relaxing day at the beach and decided to go for a swim. Regularly, Joe removes his wedding ring and necklace and then places the ring on the necklace. His wife agreed to hold both. After placing the necklace over her head she noticed the ring was missing. The ring had buried itself next to their Sun umbrella and after we remove the metal objects in the area, I found Jose ring before he could put the umbrella down.

Emerald Isle, NC: Wedding Ring Lost In Sand Found And Returned

from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-614-354-6704

Lauren & Rick were spending some time along the Crystal Coast. While staying in a beach house rental, Rick gave his wife his wedding ring to hold while he took a dip in the ocean. Lauren placed his ring on her finger and stayed on the beach with their puppy. The pup made a sudden move towards Rick and the lunge caused his wedding ring to go flying into the sand.
12 days later, Lauren contacted me and I headed out that day. A lot of favorable conditions made this recovery possible.

6/24/20 The night before i was contacted by Stephanie on behalf of her cousin Tyler. While at the beach in LBI yesterday he had lost his Heirloom wedding band from his Grandfather. He put it in his beach bag before swimming, Forgot it was in there and shook the sand off/out the bag along with the ring. He did not realise it until later that night after they already left the beach. I went out there this afternoon and spoke with Steph on the phone since they were no longer in town. She also sent me some photos to help me determine where they were sitting. After about 2 hours of gridding the area i had it in my scoop! I will be meeting them Friday to return it and get a photo! Another great day!

Lost Wedding Ring in Lbi NJ Found by Matt St.Germain/Dennis Burligame

6/22/20 I was contacted by Gregg. While in Lbi at the beach he decided to go into the water for a dip and while he was out there his ring slipped off his finger. After going over the location and getting an idea on where to start, I went out there the next day to give it a try. He said he believed he was only about 2-4 feet into the water. So for a few hours i went back and forth before the drop off and 4 feet past the drop off. No luck. I felt like maybe he was further out than he may have thought and Gregg agreed. So i went back out again the next day and brought my fellow ring finder and good friend Dennis. I showed Dennis where i had searched already and that it may be in deeper water. We started on opposite ends. I began closer to shore and Dennis went out about 10ft. Within about 5-10 minutes Dennis had found it! Another happy ending thanks to teamwork!
