Lost gold chain and cross in Lake Burkett, Winter Park, Fl……Found!

Miguel was enjoying a warm spring day on his family’s dock with some friends and as they were getting ready to head up to the house, he asked one of his friends to toss him his shirt. Earlier, Miguel had laid his shirt across the back of a lawn chair and also had removed his gold chain and cross and placed it on top of his shirt. (This chain was very special to him as it was a gift from his mom 12 years ago and he has worn it ever since!) As his friend grabbed the shirt the chain slipped off and fell directly thru a crack between the deck boards of the dock. Miguel did not actually see the chain fall but he was able to hear the sound of his chain and cross as it fell into the dark waters below the dock. Stunned, he could not believe what had just happened! He mustered the courage to get into the cold water and made his way under the dock. There were lots of underwater plants growing up from the muddy bottom making it very difficult for Miguel as he tried to feel with his hands and his feet. Numerous shells, sticks and leaves mixed into the silty bottom was a very discouraging place to have lost his precious chain and cross. He searched for a while and soon realized the futility plus he was getting very chilled so he climbed out and tried to think of what to do next. This led him to do a search online for “How to find a gold chain underwater” and thankfully “theringfinders.com” website came up. He clicked on one of my recovery stories and decided to give me a call.
The next day I met Miguel and he explained what happened and showed me exactly where the chain fell thru the crack in the dock deck. After suiting up I slid into the cold, dark water and made my way directly under the dock where Miguel figured his gold chain fell. There were allot of signals in the mud but one signal in particular sounded sharp and clear on my Garrett ATMax and after sifting out all the mud, shells and sticks there was his lost gold cross and chain! It was an honor to help Miguel and to see the joy on his face as he was reunited once again with his special gift. Maybe you have lost something recently or even years ago! Give me a call ASAP!

Lost wedding ring, Saratoga Disney Springs Resort, Fl…….Found and Returned!

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

Wednesday night I received a call from Chris asking if I could possibly help him find his lost wedding ring! He went on to explain that he and his family had just flown into Orlando earlier that day and after they settled into their rooms they thought it was a perfect evening for a little game of catch the football! And then it all came to a sudden halt when Chris felt his ring come off of his finger. He and his family searched frantically for his ring but the St. Augustine grass had seemed to swallow it up.
For the last 5 years Chris has worn his special wedding ring and now it was gone. Made of copper and silver it was quite unique and I was sure it would give a good strong signal whenever my trusty Whites DFX metal detector went over it.
Upon arriving and seeing the small grassy area where the ring was lost, I set up four corner flags and began my search. I explained to Chris that there would be lots of signals for me to check out and by using my Garrett Pro Pointer, (thank you Chris Turner) I could easily determine if the target was deep or close to the surface and any deeper targets I would be ignoring.
It took roughly 15 minutes to locate Chris’s lost wedding ring and I never get tired of seeing the smiles and hearing the relief in the voice of the one who lost their precious ring. It was an honor to help you Chris and thank you for the generous reward!
Lost something recently? Do not wait! Call, text or email me ASAP!

Lost cell phone along highway, Ormond Beach, Florida….Found and Returned!

In November of 2017, Jerry was visiting his brother and wife in the Ormond Beach, Florida area and was in a bit of a hurry as he packed up his car to head north for the long drive home. And in his hurry he forgot that he had set his phone on the top of the car! Here is Jerry’s account. “My phone survived a brief thrill ride on top of my car before sliding off onto the shoulder of the road, where it survived a couple of cold and lonely nights before you, Mike, came to the rescue. I tried to hire someone from Craigslist for an “Odd Job” but nobody was interested. The day before I contacted Mike, I asked a local police officer to go out where the signal was still pinging and have a look around. It’s a work phone and they probably wouldn’t have charged me for it but I had some video on there of my daughters last Tae Kwon Do belt test that I didn’t want to lose. Glad I thought of metal detectors and glad I discovered you (and theringfinders.com)! Thanks again! Jerry O.”
So glad to be able to help you Jerry and thanks for entrusting me with the job of finding your lost cell phone!

Lost wedding ring in the springs, Longwood, Florida…..Found and Returned!

Elizabeth wrote “My husband and I were snorkeling in a crystal clear spring, when my husband decided to swim down deep to check out a small cave looking space. While he was coming back up to get air, he pushed off a rock and his wedding ring slipped right off his finger. Panic mode took full force! After several hours of searching for the ring, we thought the ring was gone forever. And by the time you swam to the bottom (at least 15 feet) you had only seconds to search due to the limited air. The ring meant allot to us and it was very hard to accept the fact that it was gone.
That night I googled “ring finders” and found theringfinders.com. I searched our location and Mike’s profile popped up. We had nothing to loose and thought it was a long shot but I emailed him anyways. Mike was very fast with his response. Mike and his wife, Rachelle, took the time to drive to the spring on a Sunday so we could show him the exact spot it happened, before we headed back home to Sarasota. Mike was able to work with my grandpa and my dad on coordinating a time to retrieve the ring due to the locked and gated community. Two days later, my dad was able to capture the moments of retrieval on video and keep me updated while I was at work. Mike found the ring in a matter of minutes! I was extremely impressed with Mike’s work ethic, communication skills, his passion to help others and his love for God! Words cannot express how thankful my husband and I are. The ring was irreplaceable and Mike was the answer to our prayers. We will forever cherish this memory–and remember, if you lost something, MIKE will find it!!”
It was truly my privilege and a real pleasure helping Elizabeth and her dear family! How can I help you? Call, text or email me anytime day or night!

Lost engagement ring, Port Orange, Fl…..Found!

Jennifer was enjoying a cool afternoon walk along her favorite grassy back road and thinking about how loose her engagement ring felt on her finger. As she walked along she was thinking, I wonder if my ring would come off if I shook my hand a bit and sure enough, the motion was enough to send her ring off into the thick grass! Shocked at what just happened, she immediately stopped and tried searching through the grass, desperate to recovery her now, lost ring! After searching for several hours she realized she needed to at least mark the spot and by using her foot she scuffed a bare spot on the grassy road and then went to her truck to find something to better mark the area. All she could find was a machete and some red surveyors tape, so she returned to the mark and stuck the machete into the ground along side of the road directly across from the bare spot. She then called her fiancee and together they talked about renting or buying a cheap metal detector. Later they went on Google and typed in “Metal Detection Professionals” and up came theringfinders.com. Jennifer gave me a call and we met later on that afternoon and drove out to the unique machete marker along side of the road. I set out four flags and began my grid search and did not walk more than 5 steps before I got a really nice signal on my Whites DFX metal detector. Because the grass was so thick I decided to use my Garrett Pro Pointer and there was Jennifer’s lost engagement ring! I motioned for Jennifer to come pick up what I had located and you talk about one happy young lady! Here’s what Jennifer wrote two days later. “While out walking,my favorite ring fell off my finger and even though I knew the location where it fell off, I was unable to find the ring after several hours of looking through the tall grass. I contacted Mike after finding his information on the internet and he responded as soon as he was able. Mike asked a few questions, set up a boundary and started looking. And within minutes of him arriving at the site, my ring was found!! I am so grateful to Mike for his help and my fiancee and I would like to give him a big thanks! Again thanks so much!”
