Eric’s description of the day – My Saturday was a roller coaster of emotions. Started on a high catching up with friends and swimming in the river to escape the heat. Unfortunately, the fun did not last long. After a short while in the river I realized my wedding ring, of about one year, was missing and there was a 2500 sqft area of river where it could have fallen. My friends and I spent over an hour looking and a man even offered his snorkeling mask but I could barely see the bottom. After returning the mask, the man suggested I find a metal detector so the google search began, “Lost ring in water help Portland.” This led me to “Ringfinders”. I called the Portland number and Del answered. He heard my story and said he could leave immediately from The Dalles area; that’s a 2+ hour drive on a late Saturday afternoon, who would do that? The 2 hrs went by slowly and my mind was mixed with anxiety, grief, and anticipation. It also included the dreaded phone call to my wife — but the moment Del arrived I felt a sense of hope. He presented himself very professionally and stated with confidence he would find my ring. Del asked a few questions and got straight to work. 1.5 hours of scanning passed and I became less hopeful until Del stopped, like many times before, but this time I felt he’s got it. He lifted the scoop from 2′ of water, shook the muck out, and we heard the metal-to-metal clinking. With a smile on his face Del asked, “you guys want to come look at this?”. I’m sure I alarmed everyone on the beach with the largest shout. The sadness of losing my ring for over 6 hours was overcome by an overwhelming sense of joy and I jumped around with the biggest smile; note the selfie! Spectators clapped, cheered, and offered congratulations. Del said mine and my wife’s reaction and the return of a precious item is why he enjoys being a “Ring Finder”. Thankfully there are amazing people in this world who give their time to bring joy to others, thank you Del Witters – I will never forget. The moral of this story; there are awesome people in this world and never wear your wedding ring in the water after applying sunscreen.

Eric, Thank you for the call and the opportunity to return your wedding band. I wish you and Lauren the very best!

Handmade 14k Band Lost in Columbia River, Portland Oregon (found) by Del Witters

from Portland (Oregon, United States)
Contact: 1-509-365-8010

Waist deep search along 60 yards of Columbia River beach nets return… the story in Raquel’s words!

Raquel and Daniel; we met almost 2.5 years ago and after a little over a year of long distance, Daniel managed to make it to Portland so we could finally live in the same city. We didn’t have a traditional fancy wedding. The closest thing to a traditional wedding was the fact that we exchanged wedding bands. The special thing about them is that we made them for each other. Daniel made mine, and I made his. Sentimentally, they are priceless.

Fast forward 11-months, to almost our one year anniversary. We spent a lovely Sunday with friends on the Columbia River and at some point Daniel’s ring slipped off of his finger. We tried looking for it but had no luck, the water was murky and our time on the river was running out. We were pretty sure it was gone forever but with a stroke of Internet magic we found The Ring Finders, and got in touch with Del. His kindness, knowledge and positivity saved the day!! After a mini boat paddle to the island and a hike, we landed on the spot, gave him some information, and in a little over an hour he found Daniel’s ring!!! It was incredible! We practically did cartwheels on the beach. He is amazing!!! Thank you!!!

I’m ecstatic that I could return your ring before your first anniversary… a memorable recovery with two great people!
I forgot my video camera… their reaction as I held Daniel’s ring up from 20 yards away tells the story of this service and I’ll never tire of it, Thank you!
