LOST WEDDING BAND IN LAKE CHARLES, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

Susan called to ask for help in finding her husband’s lost tungsten wedding band.  It was slung off his wet finger a month before when opening their camper door. Carrie and I left the next day for the 70 mile trip. On arriving, we found the grassy search area to be small in the RV lot. We began the search of the lot. Next to the grassy area was a fenced area for a water system. Sid hunted the fenced area facing the RV. After 2 hours of searching and re-searching the yard and rock driveway, we had not found the ring. Susan, Carrie and Sid had gathered up near the rear side of the water system to discuss the next step when Carrie saw a sparkle from the rocks around the water system. In plain view laying on the rocks was the ring. Lost items are not always where you expect them to be. After the happy trio took pictures, we were on our way back home. Thank you, Susan, for your generous reward.

Lost Cell Phone… Found in Iowa City, Iowa

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)
Contact: 1-319-430-3606

We’ve been getting some snow here almost every day for a week and people are starting to lose things in it. I received a call from Zac about his lost cell phone. His friend Amy posted on her face book page about me finding her keys and so he thought he would give me a try to help find his phone.

We met on Jan. 25th in the afternoon at the park where he lost it. He had been sledding and playing in the snow when it was lost. He said he did an online search and the phone showed up in the park until the battery died.

We walked out in the snow to an area he thought we should start at. The second signal was his phone buried in the snow. He was very happy to have his phone back.

Wedding ring found Williamsburg, Michigan lost throwing hay to the horses

from Traverse City (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-231-499-7526

This adventure started with a call from Tim saying he lost his Wedding ring after throwing hay over a fence to the horses. He said he has been married 27 years and would very much like to get the ring back. Tim and his wife had been looking for the ring for 4 days with a $50.00 metal detector they just purchased to try to find the ring. I told Tim I’m not trying to be rude or hurt your feeling but you are wasting your time with that approach. He told me that was exactly what he wanted me to say and when did I want to come to look for the ring. We still had a couple hours of daylight so I told him I could be on the road in fifteen minutes. I was thinking in my head “Horse + Hay = BRING THE TALL BOOTS” then explained some of the basic metal detector operation and why you needed a better detector and someone who knows how to use it. I can do two things tell you where the ring is not at or find the ring.

Fifteen minutes later I was loaded and headed to Tim’s house. When I got to the house Tim showed me the area he was getting the hay from and the three different spots he threw the hay over the fence. He has three horses he was feeding for the night. He did not realize the ring was missing till he was in the house getting ready to go to the neighbor’s house Saturday night. To myself, I’m thinking we don’t have an exact location it was lost but no big deal the area is pretty small. So I started the search and search I did. I searched the hay storage area twice the path he walked on twice and the area on both sides of the fence twice. So after about 2 hours in I was scratching my head on what to do next. I made a decision on grid searching the complete corral area then calling it a night. I had already told Tim I would return Saturday if I did not find the ring tonight. I switched the coil on my CTX3030 to the big 17-inch coil to cover the area faster. I was on my second pass and got a great sounding target but it was 4 inches down. Was thinking to myself the ring cannot be 4 inches down the ground already it is starting to freeze. Either way that sound needed to be investigated further. I ran up to get my raptor digging tool out of my truck, so, I could dig a big piece of the soil out, not do any damage just in case it was the ring. I had the ball of soil in my hand broke it apart and the ring appeared. I almost fell over thinking that is a big chunk of gold I was not expecting. I had only asked Tim what the ring was made of and if it is a small band or a wider one. Well, I cleaned the dirt off stuck the ring on my finger over my glove held my hand up in victory. Tim came out of his truck to see what I was doing, so, I yelled I have the ring. He ran over grabbed the ring off my finger and gave me a big hug. At that time his wife Deanna just got home and he gave her the news. She asked me where I found the ring then gave me a hug thanking me. The ring was out in the corral about 30 from the fence. Tim and I talked for a minute on how the ring could have gotten that far out. I think it got stuck on one of the horse’s hooves and got carried it out that far and he agreed that something like that happened.

I had a great time with Tim and his Wife Deanna they are both great people to talk to. As I was packing up to leave Tim mentioned he was amazed his wife said there are people that will come and look for your ring. He did an internet search and one of my blog posts came up first. He called me and got his ring back the same night. I told him my stuff is always ready. I can be loaded and on the road in 15 minutes if needed. I went home cleaned the horse droppings off my coils put the battery on the charger ready for the next adventure.

 

 

 

LOST ENGAGEMENT RING IN BREAUX BRIDGE, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

After Brennon and Alyssa rode their 4 wheeler along the muddy trails, they decided to call it a day. They parked at the area used to wash off the four wheelers and themselves. While washing her hands with a hose, Alyssa felt her engagement ring slip off her finger. They and other riders hunted for it from 8 PM till midnight with no success. The next morning they returned with a newly purchased metal detector to continue the hunt. After finding only foil, pennies and pop tops, Brennon looked at a YouTube video for hunting hints. He saw a “The Ring Finders” decal on a car in the video and went to our website. We got the call from Brennon on Sunday morning. Carrie and I were able to load our equipment and be on site in 1 ½ hours. The hunt area was relatively small but had quite a lot of trash. It was hard bottom with dead matted grass covered by 2 to 4 inches of mud. After 20 minutes of getting everything, including us, covered in mud, Carrie found the ring, tangled in the grass, under the mud. After some happy tears and pictures (and washing off mud from us and our equipment) we were heading home feeling great after reuniting Alyssa with her beautiful ring.

Thank you for your generous reward. Best wishes for a long and happy life together.

 

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 Ring on Volleyball Court,Plainsboro New Jersey. Recovered by NJ Lost Ring Finder!

from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-856-296-9258

I received a call from a guy asking for my help finding his gold ring he had lost while playing volleyball with friends a few days ago. I was able to meet with him a couple hours later at the park and he showed me the court he had been playing on. He had been on both sides of the net so I began my grid pattern search on one with my White’s V3i and 6 x 10″ coil which is perfect for these types of hunts. Having no luck on the first side I moved onto the other and about half way through I got a nice signal in the gold range. I scooped up some sand and there was his ring! He was watching with his family and when I held it up stating I found it they were very happy and grateful for my help thanking me and saying how much the ring had meant to him. Another great recovery!       Recovery # 119

 

Beautiful ring lost in river found!

from Marietta (Ohio, United States)

Well, it happened again. I was contacted by a young lady over a month ago and she tells me that she lost her ring while canoeing the little Hocking river on July 31st. With all the rain we have had, it took until today before it was slow enough for us to make the trip. This hunt was the toughest yet. The water was fast and cold! Well, here is her story of the days events!

You won’t believe my amazing theringfinders.com story!!

On March 21, 2017 my sister in law (The Original Katie Kittle) took her life. She was an amazing person and the life of the party. Since she passed I have been wearing three of her rings (I had them soldered together). I cherished being able to have something of hers with me every day. During a canoe trip with my friends on July 31, 2018 my canoe tipped and I lost Katie’s ring. I was devastated and heart broken. I’ve had many sleepless nights and I was calling all the local canoe liveries on a regular basis to see if anyone had found it. When I called in August the canoe livery told me about a man who had just found a woman’s wedding ring and about the website theringfinders.com. I immediately went to the website and found Steve Wagner. 68 days after loosing Katie’s ring Steve, myself, and my friend Joselyn took the same canoe trip. Joselyn and I showed him where we tipped and using his metal detector and other tools he found my invaluable ring in less than 2 hrs. Words can not express my gratitude and amazement for this wonderful and caring man. Thank you Steve Wagner!

LOST ENGAGEMENT RING BATON ROUGE, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

Taloria called late Saturday afternoon looking for help in finding her lost engagement ring. It was too late to drive the 1 ½ hrs to Baton Rouge and get any hunting in before dark, so we set up to meet early the next morning. When we arrived at the site, Taloria said she was on her way to a party with friends when she placed her engagement ring on her lap to apply some hand lotion. When they had parked in the grassy field, she exited the car not thinking about the ring. When she realized the ring was gone, she hunted in and around the car but did not find it. She then called us to help. Being she knew where the car was parked, the search area was small. The problems were tall grass and lots of trash (foil, pull tabs, drink containers, etc.). The hunt was very tedious.  Sid got tired of the constant up and down to check out hits. He got on his hands and knees and crawled around using the pin pointer. The technique worked. A hit with the pointer and glints of shiny metal proved to be the ring. Taloria (also Carrie and Sid) were very excited. After reuniting Taloria with her beautiful ring, lots of hugs, lots of smiles, and lots of pictures, we all headed home.

Graduation gift found on football field in Downers grove, Il

from Chicago (Illinois, United States)
Contact: 1-773-774-5445
Got a call last night, a Med Student lost a graduation gift from his grandmother.
Gift was give to him 20 years ago and his grandmother passed away a few weeks ago so this search had a lot of meaning.
He lost it while playing football on the campus field.
My long range locator got me within 10 feet of the target and the Minelab Equinox did the rest.
He was one happy camper and the satisfaction of hitting it for him can’t be described.
I love this work!!!
