June of 2021 I came across a public post of a gentleman who had just lost a very important gold heirloom coin ring in the heart of down town Seattle. This post caught my attention and drove some immediate concerns due to the excessive amount of details that were published. This compelled me to reach out to offer a hand of assistance. 

I do not judge anyone or hold anything against them as I fully understand most often these are great people that have found themselves in a terrible situation trying anything that comes to mind to find a way to get their most precious keepsakes and valuables they hold close to heart found and returned to them. We understand it’s often a stressful situation and most are not prepared or trained on how to approach such a situation. Fortunately an army of professional recovery specialist are scattered across the country continually looking for opportunities to serve the public in getting their lost items found, recovered and returned to their rightful owners. To date we have found no better way to showcase our professional capabilities than by being members of the number one global listing service Please share “TheRingFinders” on your social media so more people are made aware of our amazing services. The more that hear of “TheRingFinders” means the more precious items of value that will be recovered and returned to those that have lost them.

I quickly reached out to this man and learned that Louis was devastated having had just lost a very important heirloom gold coin ring that meant the world to him. He explained that it came from his great-great grandfather, had been in the family for nearly one-hundred years, passed down to him. He was perplexed because his ring is a huge gold 1911 King George coin ring and very hard to miss. He briefly explained his situation and that he had been retracing his steps and has some real concern for the city sidewalk area in-front of his corporate office building in down town Seattle.

The first thing I was able to do for him was to explain some very important tips on how to modify his Craig’s List post. He agreed and adjusted his post to the community. Our biggest concern when people put excessive details it that they have now just invited everyone to search for their lost items in public spaces.  Outside of a stressful situation most of us would agree that there are those that potentially scan Craig’s List looking for opportunities to find valuables for their own personal gain with zero intent to ever return the found items to their owners. I tend to refer to these types as the “sharks”. The last thing anyone should do is to crate a feeding frenzy by posting all details of their lost to any blog or public service. It only empowers a situation of opportunity for the “sharks” to visit these public spaces looking to score some treasure all for themselves. Believe me it may likely happen more than any us really know for the simple fact they don’t tell anyone when they take advantage and find your lost items.  It may not be all that often but if you lost one item that means the world to you, you would not want to inform the public at large that you have an expensive diamond wedding ring lost in this park and all the details of its physical description and detailed location. It’s a risk you can’t afford. Don’t do it!

Fortunately there is a better way and we are happy to share the good news. It’s critical to reach out to a lost item recovery specialist from as your first priority. Look for a specialist in your local community that has a track record of success, concern and professionalism in lost item recovery. Theres is may recovery specialist  listed on the directory and even if some one appears to be at distance don’t hesitate to reach out for a quick phone call. You might be surprised at the level of support you find. Remember your lost items means the world to you so don’t give up if you don’t find someone initially, don’t give up. Keep calling TheRingFinders until you connect with someone that can provide some assistance. The point is by having an experienced person on your team even if only by phone consultation can greatly improve your chances of a successful recovery as we learn from this post.

The story went like this Louis had a routine of taking his ring off each night and placing it on his night stand. He would put it on in the morning while getting ready for work. His wife would drive him and his dog to the office in the morning. He had the opportunity of having his pet at work and when he went outside for a break mid morning he noticed his ring was not on his finger! His ring is huge and you would probably see it half a block away on his hand. So his frantic search started and eventually he posted to Craig’s List with all the specifics of his loss thinking it could have been lost outside in the street or walkways.

After spending some time conversing with him he learned of my skills and shared in confidence many details. One of our last discussions ended with him about to go back out looking in the streets. I agreed that I would pay a visit to the area the next day to do a final sweep if necessary. After that discussion I sent him one last recommendation texted to his phone. As crazy as it may sound you need to check all of your household garbage before it gets collected by the city. We’d hate for it to be lost forever in such a way. 

Some short time later I got an amazing call back that he found his ring in his “bin”. I thought he said den or home office and he clarified “bin”. I said oh do you have a trash bin near your nightstand that the ring fell into? 

He said no he was about to go back to his office and scour the city streets like a crazed lunatic but happened to see my last text message and decided to investigate his house hold garbage upon my recommendations.

It turned out in the morning while preparing for his day he had grabbed some stale dog treats and tossed them into a garbage bin at his home as he went out the back door. He looked in that trash bin and found his ring!!!

He was so grateful for the time spent chatting and now has his family heirloom gold King George ring back on his finger!

I am always blown away by the twist and turns these recovery sorries take and so humbled to be a part of an amazing team of recovery specialist doing this specialized type of work. 

We can’t guarantee a recovery every time. However people tell us that by having us help them they know they have done the very most that anyone could do. Many times they have reported that they have gained a great since of closure after our work is performed.

If you lost an item of value reach out to me directly for a quick chat so I can formulate a recovery plan for you!

Lost gold wedding band Oak Meadows Park, Vancouver…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Vancouver Ring Finder Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

It’s Sunday around 11am, I’m making brunch when I received a text message for help. I read the message and it said ”Hi my name is Travis I just lost my ring at Oak Meadows field in Vancouver”. I called immediately, I asked my questions in regards to where Travis thought the ring was lost and quickly ate my brunch and hit the road.

I got to the soccer field minutes before the ultimate Frisbee game was over and met Travis, we talked for a few minutes and another player walked over and introduced himself to me, it was a previous client from maybe four years back who I help find his gold wedding band. He was so kind to make mention of my directory in order for his friend Travis to get a hold of me.

After talking to Travis the search that I thought was not going to take long could  turned out to be a long day due to the fact it could’ve fallen out of his pocket pretty much anywhere. You see Travis took his ring off to keep it safe and put it in his jacket pocket, when he got to the sidelines of the field, from walking from the car he realized his ring was missing and realize there was a ring size hole in his pocket. I walked the walk with Travis he showed me where he came on to the field, where he went across the field, and where on the sideline he went.

Right away I knew this could be a long search close to 100 yards in distance and could be possibly 10 to 20 yards across, I began the process of my grid search and close to an hour into the search on this rainy day people were starting to show up to the field to play ultimate frisbee. Two other teams showed up and I knew my time was limited, I kept grid searching and found the ring an hour into the search. I was so relieved to find his ring because I would’ve stayed for two hours until that game was done in order to start searching again and also it was Travis’s 19th wedding anniversary this Wednesday so you can imagine how badly he wanted to have this ring back.

Lost Platinum Wedding Ring In The Rideau River Ottawa Ontario

  • from Ottawa (Ontario, Canada)

Lost wedding ring North Shore found

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find started out with a phone call in the evening from Simon. He asked if I would be able to go to the North Shore and search for his platinum Cartier wedding ring which he lost while swimming. I gathered all the details concerning the time he lost it so I could verify the tides and also try to get as much information to put me in the right area for a recovery. It was getting late and I had to put the kids to sleep and knew if this was going to be a success I needed to head down early. So, Early the next morning I took a drive out to Sharks cove And gathered all my gear and hike down to the cove. I was greeted at the shoreline by a mother and daughter which they ask am I looking for anything and I replied yes a young men’s wedding ring. They both looked at each other and said are you able to find it? I replied I’m going to give it my best and they both smiled as we departed. The area to search was quite large but I decided to give it my best shot and search the deepest areas first as it was low tide. I found countless amounts of pulltabs and aluminum. After dodging a bunch of snorkelers I get this really good tone. I secure the target and dig with my extreme scoop and low and behold there in my scoop is Simon‘s platinum wedding ring. As I look up above the waterline I notice two swimmers swimming to me and those were the two that I met at the shoreline. As we gathered closer I was able to show them the wedding ring that was once lost is now found. They both underwater seen the ring in my hand as I held it out to them with a thumbs up… and they both screamed and stood up and said you found it! We all were excited and happy to know that there was a happy ending with this incident. The drive home was not least burdensome. I got to call Simon with the Good news and left him a message. Simon called me back and we were able to meet up at their hotel in Waikiki. The reunion of the ring to the owner was nothing short of a miracle and smiles that expressed gratitude. Well, I’m Happy to help recover this beautiful ring and Simon enjoy your time here in Hawaii.



Unique Brass Pendant Recovered on Pacifica Bike Trail, Pacific, CA

  • from San Francisco (California, United States)

View from the hills above Linda Mar Beach

Linda Bar Beach, CA

High above Linda Mar, Tyler was riding hard down one of the steepest trails in the hills.

There was a huge jump coming up. Tyler wondered if he had enough speed to make it?!?

Nope. Instead of making a cool landing, he plowed his front wheel into the ground,

(breaking his front forks) and was pitched, head first into a small tree,

this tree:

Shaken, bruised and seeing stars, he slowly collected himself and drug his wounded self down the mountain.

Only when he got home hours later did he miss his pendant!

Tyler took me back to the scene of the crash, and with the help of a machete and

an axe we were able to clear the brush under the tree and recover his pendant!

Mountain biker, Tyler Gale, with his recovered brass pendant!

Steve Thomas – Dunedin Ring Finder  Lost your ring or other metal valuable?  Call me ASAP anytime (843) 995-4719


Since almost the beginning of the year, I have received only two calls for lost rings. In both cases, the ring owners were certain that the rings were lost inside their homes. Also in both cases, I agreed to assist but before I was able to search, both owners recovered their own rings.

Several days ago I received a call from Morgan who said that his wife Melissa had lost her white gold and diamond wedding ring and band in the yard of their townhouse. The band had been made from her grandfather’s wedding ring and he was her best friend until he passed away several years ago. Morgan was out of town but gave me Melissa’s number so I texted her and set up a time to search the next morning. Melissa had already searched her home and car and was certain that she had pulled her car keys out of a small pouch on the way out of her front door or somewhere in her small yard on the way to her car and the ring set which was also in the pouch must have flown out. Melissa also purchased a metal detector on Amazon and tried to search on her own. I did also find out that the grassy area where she probably lost the set had been cut since the set was lost but the grass was not bagged.

My son Grayson accompanied me with an ancient Bounty Hunter and I had my Equinox 600. After a good bonding time search of about 2 hours in thick St Augustine grass, thick Bermuda grass, an area of shrubs on either side of the porch, and some potted plants including on our knees with a pinpointer, we found scrap metal and a survey stake but were unable to find the ring and band.

Before we left, I asked Melissa to search her home and car again as well as consider other possible search locations. (In a search, you can’t ask too many questions.) I told Melissa to call me if she thought of any other outside locations and I would search them. I asked her to consider looking in places where she didn’t think it was possible for her to lose the rings.

The following morning I received a text from Melissa and she informed me that she had located the ring set! She had searched her home and car again but then remembered that she had used her mother’s car the day she had lost them and that is where she found the rings.

Melissa, thank you for contacting the Dunedin Ring Finder to assist you with your search.







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

  • from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)

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. 

Beautiful, Sentimental Gold Wedding Band found and returned in Delaware County, PA

  • from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)

Received and email from Jestine on June 17, 2020 asking for help with a lost ring. Apparently she was holding the beautiful, vintage gold band for a friend while playing Cornhole in her backyard. Turns out the ring was a family heirloom that went back generations. After purchasing a metal detector and trying to find the ring herself over the course of several hours she gave up and consulted the Ring Finders directory. After getting the call and heading in her direction, she lives in Aldan, PA, I gave a call to my bud and fellow Ring Finder, John Favano to see if he wanted to join me for the search. We met there 30 minutes later and met Jestine in her backyard….it was a small backyard with high grass. She walked us through step by step what happened with the lost ring and we got to work. I had barely turned my machine on when I saw a funny smile on John’s face…it took him less then 3 minutes to find the ring! It was a beauty as was Jestine’s reaction when we put it back in her hand.


Aggie Ring goes swimming in Lake Lavon, Tx

  • from Dallas (Texas, United States)

Watch Video of the actual Search & Find:

When we received this particular phone call we could not have been happier to help out.  An Aggie ring is a very beloved item that ALL Aggies are proud of and loosing one is just unheard of, especially to a fish.  The depth of the water has much to do with rather or not scuba gear is needed and in this situation, our Garrett ATPro detectors were all that we needed.  The young man who lost his ring made a brilliant move by not panicking but took the time to mark his spot with a GPS locater.

Custom Made Knife slips into Lake Bridgeport, Texas

  • from Dallas (Texas, United States)

Watch Video of Actual Recovery here:

We received a call from an individual that had a rather odd request as the item lost was not jewelry, it was a very special one-of-a-kind, specially made fish filet knife that meant more to her husband than any of his other knives.  It was a 40th yr anniversary present, none like any other he’d ever received.     Magnet-fishing attempts to retrieve the knife from the 13-15 ft water depth were unsuccessful as the lake bottom held the support beams for their boathouse which was metal also.  Since the magnet-fishing did not work we were then contacted for help.  After deciding on a date/time for us to come out and dive for the knife, we loaded up all of the scuba equipment and headed to Lake Bridgeport, TX.  This fun hunt was cut short because the item was found within 10 minutes of being in the water.  The act of suiting up in the scuba gear and submerging into the water took longer than the actual find.  Now the knife is back on dry land where it belongs and we have a couple of very happy friends.
