14k ROSE GOLD WEDDING BAND LOST IN ROADSIDE DITCH In SUNDRIGE, ONTARIO

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Nolan was working in Sunridge, Ontario staking out a utility vault in a ditch at the side of a roadway. He was brushing away his pants with wet hands when he noticed out of the corner of his eye his wedding band fly off.

Nolan’s 14 karat wedding band was custom designed by his Wife with a centre ruby in between two amethyst gemstones to match her engagement ring.

We agreed to meet this weekend very early morning as the Ontario Highway 400 northbound cottage traffic can be crazy.

With a strict grid search using my Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector and small stock coil I was able to locate Nolan’s wedding band in 2 1/2 minutes!

Check out the video;

A very happy young couple and another donation grateful received came into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! Nolan received a tax receipt for his donation amount! #payingitforward!

Little Robbie Jr lost his prescription glasses in the snow Brampton, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

A dear Friend and Co-worker Rockin’ Robbie sent me a message last night that his son little Robbie Jr. lost his prescription glasses playing in the snow. Robbie knew I was a detectorist registered with TheRingFindersDotCom and I was successful helping others!

I brought my metal detectors into work and we decided to meet up at lunch break!

Rockin’ Robbie said his son was playing on the pile of snow in the cul-de-sac as well as on the front yard of two homes. His pocket was undone and he thinks the glasses fell out.

I started grid searching with the ExcalibarII on the mini mountain. Then after a car moved in the front of one home I switched over to the Equinox 800. Within two minutes we found little Robbie Jr.’s glasses!! Unfortunately, they were damaged and we had figured the snow blower must have eaten them!! Lucky Robbie Jr. Still has his old pair!

I was happy to help my Friend & Co-worker but sad his Son’s glasses were damaged!

Here’s a video link:

I felt like a kid again standing on top of a snow mountain!!

Man loses Portuguese white gold wedding band in the snow Toronto (Weston), Ontario

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Received a text from Nancy as she had been into RADIOWORLD in north Toronto. She had explained to the sales staff that her Husband George had come home in the wee hours this morning and felt his wedding band slip off his finger. He heard a “ting” after his ring hit the sidewalk!

George & Nancy had spent a few hours going through the snow in the area George remembered losing his wedding band!

The sales staff had suggested to call me a local “Ring Finder”

I called Nancy after lunch and received details and headed out the door!

I had originally started with my Minelab Excalibur2 but quickly switched to my sweet Equinox800 due to chatter. Five minutes later I had that sweet solid tone!!

Check out the video;

Such a lovely young couple! Very appreciated to staff at Radioworld for the recommendation and grateful to have George’s beloved sentimental wedding band back!!

14k WHITE GOLD/DIAMOND ENCRUSTED ENGAGEMENT RING LOST AT LARGE SPORTS COMPLEX Ancaster, Ontario

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Received a Facebook message from a long time Girlfriend Tracey F’s Daughter Senna that her engagement ring was lost at a large baseball complex in Ancaster, Ontario! OMG she was devastated to say the least!!!

Senna is a Fastball star Pitcher for the Port Perry Angels and was in a tournament that day. She had taken off her engagement ring and had placed it in her jacket pocket. Seena’s Fiancé Matthew had even went out and purchased 2 metal detectors from the local Canadian Tire. They searched for 7-8 hours prior to calling me. Her baseball team, Family, Friends and Fans were also searching between games with brooms and rakes. Senna missed her last because she was so distraught!

I arrived after 7pm. I discussed with Senna, Matthew and Tracey to retrace her steps on the field area, dugout, grass and sheltered areas. I started on the infield down the first base side where she had warmed up pitching. I then moved into the dugout area. This is where Senna had her baseball bag and dropped her jacket down to warm up. I had a very low tone VDI 5 on the Minelab Equinox 800. It was 1″-2″ down. I had told Tracey a key world phrase “can you get me some water” which really meant “I FOUND THE RING”!! Then the surprise video/return…..

Here’s the video on the SURPRISE recovery & return!!

I just LOVE it when the SHRIEK & TEARS of shear disbelief & joy happens on the return!! #priceless

  

I was very grateful to Matthew as he donated one if the junior detectors to my upcoming ‘ Pink Power Ally Kids Treasure Hunter Club’!! He also made a Charity donation to the “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation”!! #PAYITFORWARD

AUZZIE LOSES ENGAGEMENT RING OFF DOCK PARRY SOUND, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Received a text and subsequent telephone call from Holly and Australian Sheila. Holly has been visiting Ontario to help a dear Friend going through brain cancer. Previous weekend they were at a cottage on Rankin Lake in the beautiful Parry Sound area. Holly had taken both her engagement ring and wedding band off and tied them on her hair elastic then wrapping them around her cell phone. She picked up two oars and before she knew it saw them fling off her cell phone onto the deck. She found her wedding band on the dock but could not locate her white gold engagement ring.

Holly called a number of “ring finders” in a panic and took the first one available out of the Barrie area. Unfortunately, her engagement ring could not be located. She was again in a panic mode as she was heading home to Australia in a weeks time. Holly was extremely upset she called me again. We had made a last minute plan but had to cancel with the severe weather and tornado in eastern Ontario and Quebec with heavy damages. Upon speaking again mid-morning she had mentioned her return home and was desperate. I then finished packing my truck and said “LETS DO THIS – BE THERE IN 3 HOURS”.

We arrived at the cottage location, brought all the gear down and I proceeded to do a short grid from 4′ out from dock in and under. I decided not to do the area under the deck with a rock crib which is very difficult even though I also brought along my Detecnix pin pointer for that spot. Closer I was to shore after 10 minutes with 2 pull tabs, then a nail….there was the strong distinctive tone on the Minelab Excalibur 2!!! At this point I had a snorkel mask on without the snorkel as I left it in my truck. Holly was heading up to my truck to retrieve the snorkel and I said “wait a minute”…

After a few handfuls there was her beautiful engagement ring!! B=I=N=G=O!!

Here’s the video *******

We were both excited. She really didn’t think I was going to find it but she flies home a very happy lady.

I didn’t accept a reward for my “Pay-it-Forward” campaign for a charity donation (Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation) because I consider Holly an “EARTH ANGEL” for being here for a month looking after her dear Friend with cancer. I will Pray for her Friend!!! I was given an invitation if I ever head to the “LAND DOWN UNDER”….Sure going to consider that offer!!

I have already advised Holly of another awesome ring finder in Australia “Jean Williams”!!

Great to meet ya Shiela “Holly”!! Cheers and safe travels back home!!

  

Heirloom gold wedding band lost in water Port Carling, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Had a message come in through the ring finders site from Ellen after she had google lost ring.

Ellen & Stephen was recently married on their lovely property by the waters of Port Carling, Ontario. She had asked her Son Andrew to be the Best Man and surprised him with his late Grand Father’s wedding band. After the nuptials, Andrew decides to go for a swim to cool down but the ring had slipped off his finger to the murky bottom. Two days later he advised his Mother the devastating news. I met Ellen & Stephen two days later on the property. They had advised the ring was in 3′ to 4′ of water… it was just over 5′ up to my ears. I had the tone with my Minelab Excalibur 2 in just 5 minutes but it took another 8 minutes to scoop the ring out between sticks and boards.

This sentiMental Heirloom 10k white/14k yellow late Grandfather’s wedding band is back were it belongs…with FAMILY !! Pleasure to meet this Family and thanks to

Here is the video from this ring recovery & return!!

Another donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation greatly received for my “Pay-it-forward” fundraising campaign!!
