Marva was so excited to be helping on her very first turtle nest relocation as a volunteer. Apparently during the night a sea turtle had buried its eggs right in the beach traffic lane, so Marva and the other volunteers gathered the necessary tools to dig up the eggs and relocate them in a safer area closer to the dunes. All was going well until Marva realized that her i-phone had popped out of the clip on her waist, and was nowhere to be found. They knew the phone had not fallen into the hole where the eggs were placed and figured it must have fallen in the sand around the edge of the hole. So they dug all around the nest area, raking and running their hands through the sand and still no phone. They tried calling the phone but could not hear it ring. Marva’s husband was able to get a GPS location and it showed the phone was in the vicinity of the new nest!
One of their friends thought of using a metal detector and even after a couple of hours searching–they still came up empty handed. And that lead to a search on Google under “How to find a phone in the sand!” Thankfully up popped www.theringfinders.com and one of my stories and Marva gave me a call.
Two hours later I met Marva and we walked to the nest location. My first attempts showed nothing around the nest and then my detector batteries up and died. So I ran back to my vehicle and put in a new set of batteries. On the next try I still came up empty handed! Marva then mentioned that she had to step up on the dune to pound a marker post into the sand, and on her first attempt to mount the dune, she slid down and had to go up another route. Sure enough, just at the base of the dune where she first stepped up– I got a solid signal on my metal detector. I motioned to Marva and she did not hesitate to uncover her lost phone!
So glad to be of service to you, Marva, and thanks for the generous reward! Lost something recently? Maybe I can help! E-mail or call–ASAP!

Lost pacemaker in Orlando, Florida….Found!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-321-363-6029

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!
