How to Find Lost Keys – Hire a Metal Detector.

A rather desperate Glenn phoned me at work yesterday afternoon – The jeans he was wearing when he went out to price a job had a previously undiscovered hole in the back pocket.
He parked his BMW, dropped the keys in his pocket and set to work.
His heart sank when he headed back to the car and realised his predicament.
There were a few catches to this tale; He needed the car to operate his business, The section was derelict and overgrown with waist high weeds, metallic scrap from renovations littered the site (along with domestic detritus from the previous habitation), said property was a solid 2 hour drive away – a smidge under 100miles(!) … and they were lost four weeks ago.
The one redeeming point was the fact that the keys were ‘safe’, albeit lost. They were tucked in the weeds somewhere and not going anywhere.
Mind you, neither was Glenn without them.
I managed to wrangle the next morning off work and headed south at 3am, I needed to be back at the desk at noon so made sure I was on site and ready to go at first light.
Using photos Glenn had taken of the property for his quote, I had several good known points and was able to determine his aged tracks between them.
The actual task of getting the coil close enough to the ground was impossible with the matted thatch of grass and thistles that had grown noticeably in the warm early summer weather.  I would be fibbing if I said I didn’t regret taking this one on when I saw the state of the undergrowth, especially with only a few precious hours available and a revisit out of the question.

First of all, I simply walked his exact path without the detector in order to define the known route and avoid confusion with other peoples tracks and the disturbance later when vegetation had been swept around by the coil.  The exact stops where he took the photos were dotted with fluorescent spray paint. These would become focus points where body position changed (turning, crouching etc). Likewise, places where he walked downhill were likely a higher probability as the material on the back pockets is more relaxed and mobile than when stretched going uphill.
I verified with Glenn by phone whether the keys were in left or right pocket. Since he walked clockwise around the property it weighted the search to that side of the tracks, slightly.
Out with the detector.  I started with a fast pass along the entire route. The endless hits on old buckles, tarpaulin grommets, roofing iron offcuts, toy cars and bits of galvanised tin was soul-destroying but each target had to be verified.
Second pass was a wider sweep, nudging slightly further into the weeds either side, although it was so dense the coil wasn’t making any headway.
I switched to a much smaller coil but while it was more efficient at getting into the grass, it became quickly apparent that with the lesser footprint I wouldn’t be able to clear the area before running out of time.
Final plan was to physically break down the thistles and flatten the grass as much as I could, then use my ‘dustbin lid’ big coil with its larger detection area and greater depth capabilites.
Three hours after starting, I got a reasonable high tone, out with the pinpointer and rummaged it through the long grass.
Parting the stalks showed a key, several keys!
Not sure who was more relieved, me or Glenn when he got the photo of the now found keys.

Last week Merle realized that her wedding band was missing after she gave her dog a bath on her deck. She searched through the leaves but did not find the ring. That’s when she found me.  After gathering some information from her daughter, Brooke, I started to search in the leaves and ivy near the deck.  A few minutes later, the ring was recovered!

The ring means a lot to Victor it was given to him by his grandmother.  It was lost after dark last night while he was walking his dog. The ring slipped off  his finger when the leash got caught around it.  With a quick search the ring was found in the grass. Thank you to fellow ring finder Rich Hageney for the referral.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Got to witness an amazing find today. A family was heartbroken over the loss of a woman’s engagement & wedding rings, which were not only monetarily valuable but more so sentimentally valuable. I couldn’t believe how quickly John recovered these items on the shoreline after a day on rough waves. He really knows what he’s doing. Job very well done!!!!

 

Found! Engagement Ring And Wedding Bands North Wildwood NJ

Jennifer was on the beach in North Wildwood, NJ this afternoon when she had the misfortune of having her engagement ring and wedding bands slip off of her finger into the ocean during high tide while helping one of children with a towel.  I met with Anna, Jennifer’s mom, and started a search after asking several questions about the lost rings. After about 25 minutes detecting in the ocean, the engagement ring was found approximately 6 inches deep.  The other 2 rings were found in the surf just minutes later approximately 25 feet from the engagement ring. The rings are very sentimental to Jennifer, so she and her family were overwhelmed when they were recovered. Thanks goes out fellow Ring Finder Jeff Lagg for the referral.

Lost ring in Far West, Utah: Found

from Provo (Utah, United States)
Contact: 1-801-420-8485

Before Mike started working in the yard, he slipped off the wedding ring that he had been wearing for more than three decades and dropped it into his pocket. Then he weeded and hoed in the garden, cleaned in and around the fish pond, and rested on the porch for a few minutes before realizing that the ring was no longer in his pocket. He and his wife searched, but they didn’t find it. Next, they found a place to rent a metal detector, but they couldn’t make it work right. What they didn’t realize was that their yard was plagued by the bane of metal detectorists: underground power lines. If there are power lines in the ground or in the air, searching with a metal detector is very difficult. So, their next step was to contact a Ring Finder. I got the call yesterday afternoon, and was able to drive up to Weber County that evening. Mike and Christie were very nice and very happy to see me. I adjusted my detector to deal with the buried power lines, and went to work. I searched the garden. No ring. I searched in and around the fish pond. No ring. I searched around the porch. Still no ring. Then I started searching the lawn, and found the ring hidden in the grass! Another happy ending!

Lost Watch and Wallet at Hermosa Beach in the Sand.. Wallet Found

Dan had called me asking for help finding his expensive watch that was lost on the beach, two nights ago. He  mentioned that there was also a wallet lost at the same time. 

It’s the beginning of summer and the beach crew uses tractors to rake the beach daily. Dan lives nearby and believed that the area of the loss was not in a location that was raked by the beach cleaning crews.

Our hopes were that the watch was under the dry sand. The wallet may have been exposed and picked up by a person, as the beach has been very crowded. Dan sent me a screenshot photo of the area. After searching the location late that afternoon, I couldn’t find the watch. 

I did find a wallet under the sand. My detector picked up a signal because it had a metallic electronic key inside.  The only problem was the driver license and credit cards belonged to a person named Ron. Luckily there was a card inside the wallet with his phone number. After contacting him I was informed he was Dan’s friend and that this was the wallet lost the same time the watch was lost. 

We now knew we were in the right location where the watch may be hiding under the sand. After several attempts cross gridding the location with my metal detector, the watch could not be found. The losses occurred in the dark. It was probably not under the sand and someone may have picked it up the next morning? 

I know that the watch was no longer in the area searched, but I had to be satisfied that I was able to return the wallet to Ron. I can’t believe the wallet was still on this beach after three days. Beach rakes. many people on the beach and other people using metal detectors on the beach, are reasons to contact a member of TheRingFinders.com as soon as possible.

I received a call from Amanda’s brother-in-law about 2 rings she lost in the sand at the beach in Margate NJ.   Amanda told me that she put the rings in the side pocket of her beach chair and forgot the rings were there when she moved her chair farther back when the tide came in.  A few minutes after taking a walk she remembered her rings were in the chair, so she quickly went back to get them and discovered that they were not there.  She and other beachgoers tried to find her engagement ring and the her wedding band, which was originally her mother’s, without success.  We met up in the early morning at the location she had been in the day before, and I thoroughly searched a grid pattern from the water’s edge up to the rear of the beach. Approximately an hour and half after searching, both rings were found!  Amanda and Willie were able to finish their Memorial Day weekend on a happy and joyous note!
