18k Diamond white gold stud earring lost on walk to Neighbours home! Milton, ON 🇨🇦

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

A follow Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation 🌸Pink Sista🌸 Jen W of Milton (Campbellville), recommended me to great Friends and neighbours Jennifer and John S!

Jennifer and John had walked down to their neighbours home for a short visit. On the way home Jennifer had felt her diamond earring was loose so she stopped and tightened up the earring back….so she thought.

They walked into their home up into the kitchen and living room to put their feet up to relax. Few minutes later Jennifer felt her ear and found her earring was no longer there. They searched everywhere and back tracked to their neighbours!

Jen W sent me a message to see if it was something I could help with! “Of course I can” on my reply! I proceeded to send a link to my Ring Finders directory information/blog page.

I was on a Ring Finder call out already in Etobicoke and advised when I finished I would be right out!

It was getting dark but that’s a great time to search with the small coil and high powered LED flashlights!! Those diamonds shine bright!

So, tracing Jennifer’s steps… I checked the one small garden, then went up the grassy side of the driveway, and then the roadway side to where her neighbour lives to the location she tightened the earring back! Gridding very slowly with my Equinox800 and small coil while Jen, Jennifer and John had the flashlights out.

With no luck outside, I then proceeded to follow Jennifer’s footsteps inside the home through the garage, staircase, kitchen and living room. NO LUCK either.

We chatted a little more and I suggested that it could be in tires of a passing car or even the garbage truck that had been by that day. I advised that I was more than happy to come back!

I got packed up and left the residence. I decided to put my highbeam lights as there were very little street lights lighting up the roadway. About 60-80 feet past where Jennifer was visiting her neighbour and had fixed the earring back, I spotted something twinkling in the middle of the roadway as I passed over it! I stopped and thought to myself, oh my goodness could that be the earring? I then put my car in reverse, grabbed my iPhone and started videoing. I saw the twinkling and then knew and saw it was the earring!!!

Check out the video;

 

 

So excited, I turned around and proceeded back down their driveway in which John came out of the garage. I said “OK, guess what I found laying on the roadway and we are going to go surprise Jennifer! Just tell her I forgot to do the wrap-up video!!”

I WAS EPIC!!! This was my first earring recovery which means a lot to me as earrings and small chains are the hardest things to find!!!

As John and Jennifer knew, I have a “Pay-It-Forward” program that when I find the clients lost item, instead of me receiving a reward I asked the client to pay it forward with an immediate online donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation which helps patients men and women fighting breast cancer with their financial needs such as wigs, medicine, X-rays, daycare, food or rent! The client then receives a tax receipt for the amount!

I was truly overwhelmed by John and Jennifer’s extremely generous donation and truly honoured to complete this most excellent recovery!! I am smiling from ear to ear still on this happy ending!! 🌸💖🌸

 

 

 

Young lady lost a custom silver ring off the dock into Lake-Of-Bays, Ontario

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

I received a phone call from Parker asking questions if I am able to come up to Lake-of-Bays near Baysville, Ontario in the Muskoka Lakes region which is beautiful cottage country!!

Parker had tried on her mothers custom silver ring which was custom made in Vancouver by an acclaimed artist. She put the ring in her baseball cap For safe keeping on a table on the dock. Forgetting it was there she put her baseball cap on and heard the ring hit the dock and felt it dropped into the water. There happens to also be a crib of rocks which supports the dock.

I headed up early early Canada Day morning and surprised the roads were not heavily travelled. Saw a doe with her two babies at the side of the road. Prepped and tested my dive gear As it was underneath the dock and about 6 to 8 feet deep in the location of the drop area. I did some searching and the visibility was poor at times after I used up one tank I came out of the water and asked Parker if she actually heard the ring hit the water after hitting the deck which she did hear. She said no, then I suggested we start checking in between the dock boards.

Parker’s Mother let out a loud scream “oh my God, here it is!” Sure enough there was the ring stuck in between the two dock boards underneath a table where Parker’s grandfather sat when I arrived!

Here is a short video;

Asking as many questions as possible is very important to figuring out where the loss item could be! I always learn for every recovery!

Parker and her mother were very happy to see the beautiful custom ring back!! They were very generous in a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! I have a “PAY-IT-FORWARD” campaign which I use my metal/scuba dive detecting hobby to raise money for this wonderful charity in assisting patients financially!!

Thank you very much Parker & Mom for contacting me, for your kind hospitality and for your generous donation!!

 

LOST HEIRLOOM WEDDING RING WRESTLING IN A BRAMPTON PARK

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Last Saturday a young man named Shamir was out with his Friends Saturday evening in a Brampton Park calked “Black Forest South Park”.

Shamir was gifted his late Grandmother’s 24k Indian gold & diamond wedding band 10 years ago. He had the ring hanging from a thin 24k good chain.

While out with his Friends they were horsing around. He soon noticed his gold chain & ring were no longer around his neck and panic set in!

Shamir and his Friends started to hunt around for both of these precious items and spent 3-4 hours that night as well as a number of hours the next day. Shamir found the broken gold chain but did not find the precious heirloom ring.

Shanir did a google search and a number of pages came up… Kijiji, Marketplace, CarryAll Canada detector sales in Toronto. He called CarryAll and spoke to Shawn Hamilton who recommended me from “The Ring Finders” directory. Shamir called late Sunday for help.

I was able to meet up with Shamir today at lunch During my workday! We pulled more than the normal beer caps, pull tabs, along with a tonnie, a dime, an American penny, 2 keys, tons and tons of can slaw and an old broken watch… I noticed the Parks staff must have had the lawn cutting machines out so hope was fading!

My lunch hour was up and I decided to circle backto my work truck widening the grid pattern! I said one more target and BINGO there was a VDI “4” on my Equinox800 but a solid signal. I always dig the solid signals not paying attention to the numbers as Shamir wasn’t sure The karat of the ring…. so now to surprise him with a so called sad faced (lol) “wrap up” video!

Check out the video here;

Shamir was elated and was a bit in shock!! So happy to help him and his Mother to find this very sentimental heirloom wedding band!! 🌸💖🌸

  

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

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

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!!

10k GOLD HEIRLOOM WEDDING RING LOST IN SAND LAKE, KEARNEY, ON 🇨🇦

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

I was tagged in a Facebook post for a lost wedding band sitting at the bottom of Sand Lake in beautiful Kearney, Ontario.

I contacted Colleen Morgan. Unfortunately, her Father had passed away and a week later, Colleen’s Mother Dot was swimming in the water in front of their cottage. Dot was heartbroken when she came out of the water and noticed her late husbands wedding band had fallen off her finger!

I made arrangements and with Colleen’s help she was able to get me some spotters to assist me because she was unsure if the ring was lost in 5 feet of water or deeper! Thank goodness I took my scuba gear… As I soon found out the ring was deeper than 5 feet!

I started an underwater circular grid. A little over 20 minutes and BINGO!! Behold Mr Morgan’s wedding band was located close to the stone marker! a quick FaceTime message to Colleen with tears of joy! Even I had some on this one!

Here’s a video we put together

Colleen and her Son devised a little treasure hunt for her Mother in hospital this past weekend. PRICELESS!

I was blessed to make new Friends of Sand Lake!!

I’d like to thank Friend & Groomer RoCkStAr Mark Reynolds for the Facebook TAG!!

Also, a special thank you to Jill Howard, Heather & Dave Smith…. Sand Lake locals for meeting me and assisting with this special ring recovery! I can’t wait to see you again!!

The “Morgan Family” have gifted me with the use of their lovely cottage!! LOOK OUT SAND LAKE…. THE KELLY SHIRES BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION PINK FAMILY WILL BE NORTH to invade SAND LAKE!!!

 

Alberta man lost his wedding band playing football at Wasaga Beach 6, Ontario

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

A western Canada Alberta man named Milton was visiting Wasaga Beach 6, Ontario a few months ago. He was 100-150 yards off shore throwing around a football when his silver coloured tungsten ring slipped off into the water!

I saw a Facebook post on the local Wasaga Beach page and messaged Milton. I advised I was a professional detectorist with The Ring Finders Dot Com and explained what we did and that we were part of a global organization in helping people find their lost belongings. He hired me and I headed out a few days later.

Day 1 was quite rough. 7 hours in the water gridding from shore out to 200’. I ALWAYS go further and wider from where they ‘think’ they’ve lost their ring…especially if a throwing motion was a factor! I had no luck!

Day 2 I decided to try again but go further out…and BINGO, I FOUND IT!!! I came back into shore and face timed Milton through Facebook. Happy Husband & his Happy Wife!!

Check out the video!!

The next day I mailed Milton’s silver coloured tungsten wedding band back to Alberta. He graciously made a donation for my “pay-it-forward campaign” with an on-line donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation. The Foundation then sends a tax receipt! Everyone wins!!

Thank you Milton for entrusting me to recover and return your wedding band!!

  

 

Man loses 18k wedding band on a dock Stewart Lake, Mactier, ON 🇨🇦

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Mass & Joanne were at their Friends cottage on beautiful Stewart Lake in Mactier, Ontario in the Township of Georgian Bay in absolutely breathtaking Muskoka Region.

They were enjoying a lovely day on the dock when they heard a click and a clang. Mass realized his 18k yellow/white gold wedding band had slipped off his finger, hit the deck and dropped into the water below.

They searched that day with no luck. They were up early to search the next morning with again no luck. Joanne googled “how to find a lost ring” and “THE RING FINDERS” directory came up. We traded emails throughout the week and set a date and time!

I arrived and shortly after Joanne and the cottage owners arrived! We brought all my gear down and here’s how it went….

It too 22 seconds to hear “that” distinctive gold tone on my Minelab Excalibur2… Then 36 seconds to get safety get under the dock to grasp the wedding band amongst the debris!!

Happy to help this couple out and grateful their charitable donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! PAYING IT FORWARD!! Thank you Mass & Joanne!
