Metal detecting for a gold cat ring/Lost in North Vancouver

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Just the other day I get a call from a lady that was desperate to find her gold ring that was lost while gardening at her daughters place.

When I showed up she showed me the area that the ring was lost in and told me that the ring was gold and shaped like a cat.

She bought the ring in Mexico and it was a one of a kind ring that she loved very much. We walked around the yard and when I saw the area I knew it wouldn’t take long to find the ring.

It only took minutes to search the small garden area on the side of the house and when I didn’t find it she was surprised!

I then searched four bags of yard trimmings that she bagged and it wasn’t in there, I went back to the garden area and expanded my search onto the grass and minutes later I found her golden cat.

The smile shows you that she was very happy that ”The Cat Came Back”!

I love my job!

Lost…White gold diamond ring/ A gift from her late Grandmother/ Vancouver

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

This ring search was for a young lady who lost the white gold diamond ring that was given to her by her late Grandmother.

While cleaning her balcony she threw a few things down to the ground below to pick up and throw away later. This is when she felt her ring come off and land some where in the grass below.

I listened to her story and it was pretty cut and dry in my mind that the ring would be in the grass close to the items that she threw to the ground.

I started my grid search in this relatively small area of her back yard and after 1 hour and no ring I had to re-think the situation. This should be easy I thought to myself… but why haven’t I found it?

My only thought was that the ring flew over the fence and landed in the neighbors yard, when I suggested we ask her neighbor if we could search her back yard for the ring, she didn’t think it was possible that it ended up there, but she agreed.

After a short time in the neighbors yard the ring was found and the smile was in full view!
“Flick Factor” I believe we never stop learning and life is exciting with the possibilities that await us in every challenge we meet.

I love my job!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

My son was out camping with a few friends at Harrison Hot Springs and a girl he went to school with lost her diamond engagement ring at the lake.

She tells me that she put the ring on her towel while she was sun tanning and when she woke up from a short sleep, she got up and shook the towel.

My son, the young lady and her fiancé, searched and searched for her ring, then it hit my son! I know someone who can help! He called and explained the situation and I was on my way to find her ring.

When I showed up they put me the area that the ring was lost in and I started to search. After 10 minutes I knew that the ring was to deep due to the fact that they were digging around for hours searching for it.

I cut back the sand and pebbles and after 10 minutes I found her beautiful diamond ring, needless to say her and her fiancé were very happy.

I love my job!

Lost my ring at the park…Vancouver

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

He was enjoying a sunny day with a few friends and throwing a Frisbee, then with one flick of the wrist his wedding band goes flying into the long grass.

After searching for hours with his friends they give up and head for a business meeting, on his way out of the beach area they noticed my flyer at the lifeguard stand.

With nothing to lose he gives me a call, I take the info and get the exact location and head out to search for his ring. When I get there I check the location to make sure its the spot, then I begin my grid search.

After 20 minutes of grid searching I get a good signal and I bend down to search the grass and out pops his gold ring. I call and tell him the good news and we set up a time and place to meet to get his ring back to him.

As I was packing up to leave I noticed the parks board shows up and starts to cut the grass… It was very lucky I got there first and found his ring because if they cut the grass before I got there, the lawnmower could of hit the ring and sent it flying.

I love my job!

Gold Ring lost at Surrey Golf Course…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

This story begins with a call in regards to a lost ring at a Surrey golf course, the lady tells me that the ring was lost in the pond on the golf course.

She was part of the team building the golf course and on a hot summers day, she decides takes a dip in the pond. When she gets out of the water and starts to dry off she notices that her gold band with a small diamond is missing.

Heart broken, she knows that there’s no way to find the lost ring in the pond. A few days later she sees the story about ”Finders” jewellery recovery service in the local newspaper.

She reads the story and calls to see if I can help her, she tells me that the ring is lost in a pond around 10 feet deep.

I tell her that I’d have to hire a diver as I only work chest deep of water. A friend of my who was a diver and treasure hunter agreed to take a look for the ring.

We all meet at the golf course the next day and as my friend was suiting up to do his dive, I walked to where the lady entered and exited the water and I decided to do a search on the dry sand.

I start to search and she tells me that the ring was lost in the water, I know that I tell her but I want to make sure before my friend gets into the water that its not on dry land. Really I just wanted to metal detect and see if there was anything there, and to our surprise there was…Her diamond ring!

I found her ring in the dry sand around the edge of the pond, my diver wasn’t fully dressed and I held up the ring to show him. We both had a good laugh.

I love my job!

Video…Metal Detecting Service/Finders

Contact: 1-778-838-3463

This video is by Jason Krowe for ”Living Vancouver” its about my Jewellery Recovery Service ”Finders” here in Vancouver, BC
The hardest part of my job is getting people to know that it exists… If ”Finders” was a household name I believe I’d be doing this full time…And loving every minute of it!

There are so many people that could use this service, the only problem is I’d have to be a millionaire in order to advertise so that the public are aware of my ”Finders” company.

My next goal is to look for corporate sponsorship…Jim Pattison???

I love my job!

Lost Diamond Earring/South Surrey/White Rock…Found

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

This story is about a lady who lost her diamond earring in her garden, it was lost for over 1 year. Her husband was driving to work one morning and on the radio he heard an interview on my ”Finders” service and wrote down my number and called me.

He told me about his wife’s earring and how much it bothered her that she lost it in the garden and she couldn’t find it. She knew it was there some where, but where?

Of course I was up for the challenge but I knew it would be a tough one as diamond earrings have to be the hardest thing to search for as there is very little gold on the post, so that makes it very difficult to find.

When I arrived the lady showed me the area of the garden where she believed her earring was lost. She tells me that at one time she was digging around a shrub and felt her earring get caught on a branch, but she never thought to check and see if it was still there.

Due to the time (1 year +) she wasn’t sure which shrub it was… Now the search begins!

I start with my Whites V-Sat gold detector and spend a good two hours along side of the bushes and no luck. Unfortunately the shrubs were close to the side of the house as you can see in the picture above and this was impossible to search as my detector was picking up the metal framing.

My next step was to move the dirt away from the house so I wouldn’t have any interference with my detector. I made 6 piles of dirt and searched each pile, the last pile I received a faint signal and as I was sifting through the dirt I found her earring…

I Love my job!

Found Diamond ring at 3rd Beach in Vancouver… Delivered to the owners front door.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Its hard to see the picture of this young ladies beautiful diamond engagement ring she’s holding (Sorry about that!) but its easy to see how happy she was to get it back!

This story starts with a phone call from her husband who tells me that he was at the beach and lost his wife’s diamond ring while holding it for her while she went in the water for a dunk.

He goes on to explain that he was rolling the ring between his fingers and it flew out of his hand into the sand. He immediately started to search for it as he didn’t think it would be to hard to find but after a little over an hour he and his wife gave up.

On there way back to the car they stopped off at the lifeguard station to let them know about the lost ring. The lifeguard passed them my flyer and said to call me if they wanted to find their ring, so they did.

The man tells me how to find the area the ring was lost, I stop him and asked if he can show me the area in person as this will ensure a quick recovery.

He tells me that it was fireworks night and that parking would be crazy as so many people come out early to get a good spot on the beach.

I told him I understood and he gave me great instructions on where it was lost, when I get there it was starting to get busy with people and I quickly walk to the lifeguard tower then go ten yards to the right then 12 yards towards the water.

I could see where the two of them were digging around in the sand as it was piled up in spots. I started up my detector and within 20 seconds I found her diamond ring.

I call them and tell them the good news and drive to their home to return the ring. When I get there her husband laughed and said that I was better then Pizza Hunt because I deliver.

I received a nice reward and a big smile.

I love my job!

Thanks for reading my stories.

Vancouver, Kits Beach Lifeguard lost his wedding band!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Over the years the lifeguards at the Vancouver beaches have been very supportive of my service ”Finders” I have helped two lifeguards in the past 14 years find their lost wedding bands in the ocean at low Tide.

This picture is of a lifeguard who lost his wedding band at Kits Beach while working on a summers day. He lost it at high tide and when I met up with him he gave me the area he believed he lost the ring.

I had to wait a few days for a good low tide and when I started the search of the area it took me close to 3 1/2 hours to locate the ring.

Why so long you say? Well I have to grid search a very large area due to the fact that he put me close to the area but not in the exact area the ring was lost…

I really enjoy helping these people that save lives!

I love my job!
