Fort Myers Beach — Wedding Band Lost in Gulf Waters Found & Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)
I lost my platinum wedding band in the ocean at Ft. Myers beach on February 17, 2019. We were throwing a football in the water and I didn’t even realize that the ring had slipped off my finger and frankly, I didn’t know if it was in the water or on the beach and I was crushed after looking and calling everyplace we had been that entire day.
I ran across Craig Ostendorf on the internet while attempting to rent a metal detector on February 19th.
Craig and his wife met me out on the beach that afternoon. Craig told me that he felt the chances of finding my ring were good, though I thought finding that ring in that big ocean after two days was impossible. Long story short Craig and his wife marched out into the surf with their equipment to give it a shot. 30 minutes later they found my ring and I cannot Express the relief and gratitude that I feel for what Craig and his beautiful wife did for me.
I would highly recommend these angels for what they did for me, and they accepted a tip from me but didn’t charge for their services.
I thank you both from the bottom of my heart and I’ll sleep better tonight with my wedding band back on my finger.
Please see the photo of my ring, and again thank you both for what you did for me.

Captiva Island — Ring Lost in Gulf Found and Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

We received a call from a gentleman who had lost his gold wedding band while playing football with his son in knee deep water.  After trying to search for the ring themselves with no success they decided to search the internet to find out how to find a lost ring.  The Ring Finders and my contact information pulled up and he gave us a call.

My wife and I made arrangments to meet them at their gulf side vacation cottage later in the afternoon.

Upon our arrival we gathered our metal detecting gear and we headed out to the beach.  He showed us the area where he and his son were throwing the football and the direction he felt the ring fly off.  Within just a few minutes I heard the nice low gold tone on my metal detector.  Sure enough, the ring was in the scoop!

He and his wife were ecstatic to have the ring back and we are happy to be a part of another successful ring recovery!

Sanibel Island — Diamond and Gold Pendant Found and Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

We received a call from this lovely gal who had lost her 1 carat diamond pendant in the front yard of her home.

While taking her dogs out, the dogs became entangled in their leashes around a tree.  In all the commotion a friend had noticed her chain which was still around her neck had come undone and the pendant had fallen off into the grass below.

Florida grass is very thick and they were unable to locate the diamond pendant.  To make the search even more difficult, there is very little gold on the pendant, so not just any metal detector would be able to locate it.  That’s when we received the call to see if we had the proper metal detecting equipment that would be able detect such a small gold item.

After discussing the situation, my wife and I felt confident we would be able to find the pendant and we made arrangements to stop by on our way home from a weekend getaway—which happened to fall on December 25th.

In less than 10 minutes of searching and much to her surprise, the pendant was found.

It makes us truly happy to see the amazement and skepticism disappear when a once lost item can be found and returned back to the owner!

 

 

Ring found and returned — Matlacha

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

Story as told by Steve:

I went fishing over the weekend and lost my wedding ring in somewhat of a freak accident. I was stung by a wasp reaching into a bucket. When I pulled my hand out abruptly, my ring went flying off my hand into the water of Matlacha FL. As I was out before sunrise, I did no see where the ring landed exactly.

I spent the remainder of that day diving and searching for the ring on the 4-5 foot grass flat that I had lost it in. With no luck, I marked the spot on the GPS on my boat and headed in. When I returned home, my wife had found Craig and his wife online through a quick search in Google. I immediately contacted Craig and he agreed to come out and search for the ring the following day after work (2 days after I had lost the ring).

I picked Craig and his wife up at the local boat ramp on my boat and headed into Matlacha Pass. The water was calm with about a 5mph west wind. Having quite the storm the evening before, I was skeptical that we would even have a chance at finding the ring with the current and wind pushing the water around. When we arrived at the grass flat where I had lost the ring, I anchored directly center of my GPS mark as best I could and Craig jumped in the water. I kid you not, less than 5 minutes later he pulled the ring out of the chest deep water. It had embedded itself in the mud and he was able to quickly locate it with his metal detector. Stunned, and in awe I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed.

Craig and his wife were both very down to Earth, and great people to chat with. They treasure hunt as a hobby and really enjoy helping people locate their lost items. I cannot thank them both enough for finding my wedding ring. My only regret was that I quit recording Craig searching for the ring too soon. Another minute or so and I would have had him on camera finding the ring!

Thank you both again for everything!

Captiva Island–Ring Lost in Beach Sand Found & Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

A late night search results in another RingFinders success story.

Dan called us after losing his ring in the loose sand at a public beach near his vacation rental on Captiva Island.  My wife and I decided it would be best to come that night rather than the next morning in order to avoid the heavy commuter traffic.

After arriving at the beach and determining the area where the ring most likely was lost, we began our search.  It wasn’t long until my very first signal after turning on my metal detector produced the lost ring!

We are glad we were able to reunite another lost ring with its owner!

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

We receive many calls asking for help in locating men’s rings lost at the beach.  Often times these rings are lost while tossing around a football.  This is one of those stories.

While diving into the water to catch a football, this young man’s gold wedding band slipped off his finger and fell into the water and sand below.  That’s the bad news.  The good news is, though, we were able to locate the lost ring and return it back to the young man.

The happy couple were now able to enjoy the rest of their vacation!
