Dave lost his wedding band while cleaning the rocks out of his beach in front of his cabin in Elcho, WI. One call to a friendly ring finder put that ring right back on his finger. After forty minutes of digging pull tabs and other junk it finely appeared. Smiles where from ear to ear. And another victory for theringfinders.com. This was the first of two recoveries I made this day 3/30/17.
Got a call from a man who said I lost my ring on the beach, can you help me.?
I will do my best. Ask all the questions and head down to meet him. As we walk down he says he thinks its about a 10’x10′ area. After 4 or 5 passed I get it. A beautifull heavy Gold wedding band. Another ring saved and another smile made. Read the rest of this entry »
Todd gave me a call with a very unusual request! He needed to find his mother’s pacemaker because their dog had apparently grabbed it off of the counter and had possibly buried it somewhere in the backyard! WOW!! You can imagine the questions that came to my mind but Todd was quick to explain “the rest of the story”! Unfortunately his mother had passed away and her pacemaker was removed for the purpose of making sure it had been functioning properly. I had never been asked to search for a pacemaker before and was not exactly sure just how one would ring up on my metal detector. This particular one was made of titanium and that usually rings up on the low end of the non ferrous readings.
Later that day I met Todd at his home and we discussed the possibilities of where the dog could have dropped or buried the small pacemaker. (You can see in the photo the size and shape of this unusual item! It’s about the size of a half dollar and almost twice as thick!) As we began walking around the backyard looking at various holes where the dog had been digging and I was trying to get a feel for what I was up against, Todd exclaims, “Look at that! There it is!” And sure enough there it was, laying on the cement slab under the edge of the outdoor table, between 2 chairs.
Todd had previously looked the obvious areas over quite thoroughly and we came to the conclusion that one of the dogs must have dropped it there sometime that afternoon. What a relief it was for Todd and his sister to have their mother’s pacemaker back in safe keeping!
After a nice visit I said my goodbyes and headed home. And as I pulled away I realized how thankful I was to have been blessed and privileged to have helped another person in need. God bless you Todd and thanks for giving me a call. Got something that needs finding? Maybe I can help!

The call came in from a young lady who lost her ring that her mother gave her many years ago, she lost it at Jericho Beach in Vancouver…The young lady found TheRingFinders.com because the lifeguard told them about me.
She went on to explained that they knew the area where the ring came off but just couldn’t find it. Amazing how fast the sand can hide your ring and how hard it is too find.
I grabbed my detector and headed for beach which was about 40 minuts from my house, when I got there it only took 5 minutes or so to locate the beautiful ring…
She was very happy to see her ring again her boyfriend went to the lifeguards to thank them for telling them about TheRingFinnders.com

Just got home and the phone rings. Hi John, I got your number on the internet “TheRingFinders.com
I situp cause I feel a hunt coming on.
I was down at the beach at tower ?? last night and lost my 25 yr old wedding ring. I asked more info on area and asked if he could meet
NOW. He said yes, so we both headed there. Parking was packed so I called him and let him know where to park. Then my phone died, damn. I get to the area and start detecting, nail, nail, nail, quarter, penny, penny.
I look up to see a man waveing so I go over, Hi I’m Colin, I think I was way down there. I said you must have big feet. 🙂 he had said 50′ ft from tower. We both laugh and head down the beach, only off by 50′.
Almost every call is off.
Did the whole area but nothing,? So I head closer to the water between a group who had offered to mover there stuff and
beep beep. I was smilein so I turned my back to him as I looked in to see a mens 14k gold band. Ok, what color is it ? He says Yellow 14k stamp is worn off. I hand him the ring and the beach comes alive with claps and cheers. What a great feeling. As we walk back he tells me he called his ins but had a $1,000.00 deductable. Ouch.
That doesnt matter now cause he’s got it back.
When you really want it back,
WHO YA GONA CALL ?
I received a message on my Facebook page N.J. Lost Ring Finder from Samantha asking if I possibly help find her wedding ring she had lost in the snow? She stated that while throwing the dogs ball in her backyard she felt the ring fly off her finger and although she and her husband had searched for it even after purchasing a metal detector the ring was nowhere to be found. Searching the internet she came across my Facebook page and decided ask for my help as she was missing her cherished wedding ring more and more as the days went by as she had only been married a year. We agreed to meet that weekend and give it a try! Arriving at her house I was greeted by Samantha & Clint and we entered the backyard where there was still some snow covering the area but nothing like the 2 feet of it when the ring was lost the week before. I asked Samantha to reenact how she threw the ball that day and when she did I noticed that although the ball went in a forward direction the motion of her left hand was actually more to the left. I searched the cleared area where the ball landed first with no success except for a few pieces of foil and a nickel and told her I believe it’s in the area to the left where the snow covered patio furniture was stored. We moved the furniture onto the lawn area and I began my search and with minutes I received the signal I was looking for from my White’s V3i metal detector . Scraping away the snow I could see her beautiful diamond ring shinning through the snow. I turned to Samantha with my hand out to hers and handed her the ring. She immediately began crying with tears of joy and thanking me so much! What an awesome site it was to see her and her husband smiling again as she put the ring back on her finger. Another great day! Another great recovery!
