Sentimental massive silver and gold ring lost in cedar bushes Bolton, Caledon, Ontario

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Three to four months ago Liz was throwing out a rotten jalapeño pepper over a fence into 15’ high thick cedar bushes. She watched her silver and gold ring fly off her hand in the same general direction. Liz searched for days and a few months and wasn’t successful in finding her ring.

Liz purchased her ring while visiting Portugal ti attend her Grandmother’s 100 Birthday 7 years ago! So the ring had special meaning to her.

Two weeks ago Liz and her Husband were watching Toronto CityTV news reporter Audra Brown’s segment on the global organization called “The Ting Finders”. The showed a couple of my ring recoveries and the charity aspect! Liz’s Husband said, this is for you!

After initial contact, I made arrangements to visit Liz in the small town of Bolton early Saturday morning!

Liz had shown me the area she threw the rotten jalapeño pepper and had cut back a number of lower cedar branches to get better access. Liz also mentioned that the silver ring was quite large, heavy and very loose on her finger!

My first thought was the trajectory of the rings path because of the weight. My second thought was the ring could be stuck up in the crooks of the upper branches.

First pass on her side of the cedars was unsuccessful which took approximately 20 minutes. I then proceeded down the back side of the cedars which was on her neighbours property and BINGO!! I heard the high tone of sweet silver! Looked down and saw the rim!

I walked back to the other side and surprised Liz  immediately compared to my usual slightly drawn out way!

Check out the video of the surprise!

Thank you Liz for calling upon me to help and for your donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! Thanks to Audra Brown’s CityTV news segment on “The Ring Finders” we were able to save Liz’s sentimental silver and gold ring!

18k English Gold Wedding Band Lost 16 Years ago in Professors Lake, Brampton, Region of Peel, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

I was contacted by James way back in late February of this year inquiring if I could search for his lost wedding band and what the process is. The 18k English gold wedding band was lost within 15m of the edge at a specific spot into Professors Lake in Brampton, ON. His wedding band was actually lost 16 years ago!

I explained that I would need special permission to search that area of the Lake and I would start early to mid summer if permission was received.

I reached out to James in early June and was connected to his Father-in-Law Brian who is a local resident in the area of the Lake.

After weeks of trying to obtain permission I received the go-ahead from Commissioner Parks prior to his retirement.

The next day I had teamed up with James’ Father-in-Law Brian unbeknownst to James and we proceeded to the area. I was also very grateful for my work colleague Carlos for keeping an eye on the situation as I deemed Brian my water safety spotter.

With-in 20 minutes of entering the water, pulling out old pop cans, a glass jar, fishing lures and garbage, I heard the sweet tone of gold on my underwater metal detector. I pulled out the underwater pin pointer and zoned in on the lost wedding band. WE FOUND IT!!

Check out the video of the entire process;

Next day I met with Brian and proceeded to FaceTime James pretending to ask more questions about the lost wedding band. We completed the task of surprising James with much surprise and delight. James then planned to surprise his lovely Wife on their 17th Wedding Anniversary day while spending it with Family. It was priceless!

James had also inscribed the wedding band with “What was lost is now found”. Beautiful.

Thank you James for your charity donation to The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! This is part of my pay-it-forward program as I don’t take a reward. The donation assists breast cancer patients with financial support for items such as medicines, wigs, rent or food on their table! I am truly grateful for the benefits from my work place.

14k white gold diamond engagement ring lost in snow Brampton, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Dhillion and his lovely bride-to-be where pulled over on the side of the roadway. Unfortunately, there was a disagreement which happens in life. The engagement ring was thrown and lost in the area of a construction site under recent snow.

Dhillion searched for 2 hours very early this morning with no luck. He then came across the link to “The Ring Finders” global directory page and called me.

I dropped everything and met him within an hour!

Within 3 minutes my detector had a beautiful tone. I moved the snow away and saw the diamond filled rim of the ring… and here’s the surprise!

Dhillion and his Fiancé were so very happy to receive this beautiful symbol of love back in their hands!

This is one beautiful elegant engagement ring!!

 

I am grateful not only for the extra tip I was given but from the incredible donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! Dillion will receive a tax receipt for his very generous donation!

 

Set of keys lost in a heavy snowfall in Caledon, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Ontario recently had a heavy rain, high winds, followed up by a heavy snowfall.

I had a call from Tony in Caledon who lost a set of keys in the snow somewhere in his driveway.

Tony had fallen in a number of locations because there was ice below 12 inches of snow.

I grid searched the first location, then the second and onto the third with no luck. We circled back to the second location and I widened my grid area. Within a few minutes I had a multi tone hit on my detector, spotted a portion of the keys and proceeded to surprise Tony!

Check out the video of this recovery;

Tony was very happy to get his guys back!

Thank you very much for your donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! My best fundraising year! Thank you!
