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.
