Wedding band lost while swimming on holidays at Otty Lake, Perth, Ontario

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Blayne & his Wife were vacationing with extended Family at the lovely rustic Colin S Farmer Cottages in Perth, Ontario. The cottages are located on the south west end of Otty Lake.

Blayne was swimming between the land dock and floating dock and noticed his 10k white gold wedding band was missing. He searched for 20 minutes but it was getting dark. The next day Blayne, his Wife and her Family took turns searching for 4-5 hours with no luck.

The cottages owner Kyla had seen a recent Facebook post on the Otty Lake Association page that I was heading down to Otty Lake to search for another recently lost wedding band and a pair of expensive reading glasses. Kyla reached out to me for more information. She contacted Blayne about my services and he was in touch with me immediately!

I was lucky enough to group all three searches together in one day and have three successful recoveries!

I geared up with my Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector and my DIVE BLU3 NEMO portable battery operating hookah system! Blayne provided a Google Earth image and circled the area he thought his lost his wedding band. I went out from land to the dock. I came back around searching in and out of the weeds. I had a few signals finding a pop can pull tab, a stainless steal nut, a lead sinker, swim mask and then the golden tone of the day… Blayne’s wedding band!! WHAHOOOO!

Check out the video;

I contacted Blayne with a surprise phone call to give him the news. He was so happy of the news! I subsequently met up with his best man Andrew! Small world… Andrew and I both work for The City of Brampton! He for Transit and I for Works & Transportation. Andrew was thrilled to received Blayne’s wedding band for the return!!

I can’t thank Blayne enough for his very generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! He recieves a tax receipt!

I also am grateful to Kyla & her Husband at Colin S Farmer Cottages for connecting me and giving us permission and also Patti Hamilton another cottage owner for posting on the Otty Lake Association page to help others while I was in the area if needed!! It was worth the four hour drive!

Otty Lake – ZERO

LOST WEDDING BAND AFTER A SWIM AT TGE SEGUIN VALLEY G&C in SEGUIN, ONT 🇨🇦

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Todd and his buddies from Sudbury, Ontario booked into the ‘stay & play’ Seguin Valley Golf & Country Club, Seguin, Ontario just south of Parry Sound!

A few days away on a guys get-a-way golfing adventure! A few bevies may have been had. Todd decided to swim 200’ over to an exposed rock area and he felt his wedding band fell off.

The guys all headed back home and I received special permission from the manager Gail. You see one of Gail’s employee Marci Vine is an amazing Friend and Kelly Shires Pink Sista recommended me!! Marci advised Todd to call me!

So I headed up to the golf course, received directions to cabin #2. Todd provided a photo of the area. I swam over to the rock with all my gear and searched for approximately 10 minutes with no luck. I decided to check the top of the rock!

BINGO!!! Solid tone on my Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector and I found Todd’s wedding band sitting on top of the rock just under some small shrubs! I swam back and surprised FaceTimed Todd with the good news!

check out the video;

Thank you Todd for trusting me to recover and return your wedding band! And Thank you for the donation to the Kelly Shores Breast Cancer Foundation as well! He receives a tax receipt!

Thanks also to the staff at Sequin Valley G&C Gail for permission and Marci for the recommendation!

I mailed Todd’s wedding band back and he’s out of the dog house!!


 

CELL PHONE LOST IN GIBSON LAKE, PORT SEVERN, MUSKOKA LAKE, ONTARIO

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Megan was sitting out on a dock with a pile of Friends when someone fell into the lake. She jumped up to help and her cell phone fell into the waters dockside in Gibson Lake, Port Severn in beautiful cottage country of the Muskoka Lakes region in Ontario!

I headed up after work with my underwater metal detector and decided to use my new DIVE BLU3 NEMO hookah system with the 10’ hose instead of all my scuba gear! The Blu3 Nemo hookah system is around 15lbs and is perfect for any recoveries 10’ or less!! Beats dragging all the gear and heavy scuba tank(s)!! I love this little unit!

During my underwater grid search I had a visit from Mister Bass. I pulled up some cans, bungee cords, a hot wheels car and finally managed to find Megan’s cell phone in 10-15 minutes! Hopefully the bag of rice I supplied will help save her phone/photos from damage being in the water for a few days already!

Here is the video;

I have a call out fee. When I recover the lost item, I don’t take a reward! Instead, I request the client to ‘pay-it-forward’ with an immediate online donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! The client then receives a tax receipt for the amount donated!! This is my 13th year snowmobiling for the Kelly Shires!

Thank you Megan for calling upon me to help!

M-I-A POOL LIGHTING DECK BOX FOUND ETOBICOKE, ON

I received a message from Anita in Etobicoke! Her pool guys we’re investigating a defective or faulted feed to an underwater light in the spa with continued breaker tripping.
The pool guys moved a large boulder but were unable to locate the deck box. Since the deck box had a metal lid, it was suggested to obtain a metal detector.
Anita reached out to the ‘Toronto Metal Detecting’ Facebook Group where I was recommended as a contact that could assist!
As a former salt water pool owner I understood how the construction of my pool went! We were able to locate the lid in 5-10 minutes under a piece of rock on the side of the spa!!!

Check out the video;

Another happy client and another charitable donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation in which Anita will be receiving a tax donation receipt!! Thank you Anita!
I love using my passion for metal/scuba dive detecting to help others and paying-it-forward raising charity donations!!
