Wedding Ring Recovered at Johnson Beach Florida

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

Hal called me about 4 in the afternoon to see if I could find his wife’s lost wedding ring. He and his family were staying near the Alabama beaches and decided to take their boat out to a secluded beach in Florida called Johnson Beach. Johnson Beach is part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore and the ring was lost on the intercostal side of the beach. Hal sent me a location and there wasn’t a way for me get to them by car without a 3 or 4 mile walk through the National Seashore which doesn’t allow metal detecting for archeology reasons. I tried calling the Park service for a permit but I think everyone was off work and I got a recording. I discussed this with Hal and he said he would come get me from a marina several miles away. By the time I got to where the ring was lost the sun was getting pretty low in the sky! his wife was afraid she would never see her ring again. the area to search wasn’t that big but the water was dark from recent rain. I ask lots of questions about what they were doing to try and pinpoint the location to start the search. His wife and daughter described at one point they were in the water doing cheers routines and animated with their arms the activity. It was the clue I was hoping for and asked about where they were. They identified and areas about 10 foot wide and I started the search. Within 10 minutes I got the unmistakable tone of a gold ring. Ring recovered, everyone happy and I didn’t get arrested by the Park police, a good day all around!

How to Find a Lost Ring in in Burnaby, BC

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a call this morning from a young lady who found The Ring Finders online. She told me that she lost her ring in her back yard while throwing a ball for her dog. She searched and searched but could not find her ring, I told her that I’d be there in an hour to help find it for her.

When I arrived at her home she showed me the back yard and the grass was short, my first thought was it’s not in the grass because it would be an easy spot. That being said I started my search where I thought the ring should be and to element the area. After a few minutes and no ring I expanded my search area and in the bushes behind me and close to the house I found her ring.

It’s so important to search everywhere and not just focus on the area you think it should be in…It’s amazing where rings show up but it doesn’t surprise me anymore.



I never get tired of finding people’s lost rings… it’s the greatest feeling in the world knowing how happy you can make someone. Ask anyone who has had the opportunity to find a ring for someone and they will say the same thing.
