I received a text from Danny last night about his white gold wedding band that he lost while on the beach in Ocean City, NJ.

He wasn’t sure if was lost in the sand or ocean, so I started detecting at the approximate location where he was sitting.

Approximately 20 minutes into the search, the ring was found! Danny was thrilled to have his wedding band back on his finger!

 

Lost Men’s Wedding Band…Found near Mud Pit at Willowbrook Baptist Church Huntsville, AL

I received a text message on Wednesday morning (September 15, 2021) from Justin stating that he had lost his wedding band and wanted to know more about the metal detecting service we provide.  I asked if Justin could please give me a call to discuss.  I talked on the phone with Justin and his wife, Mandy, telling them how the process works.  Justin is a youth Minister at the Willowbrook Baptist Church here in Huntsville, Alabama.  The church holds a youth event a few times a year called the “Legends of the Pit.”  There’s a grassy water retention area outside the back of the church.  They hose that spot with a lot of water, then they have some muddy and messy games in the pit.  It’s a really nice way for them to let loose, have some fun, and share the gospel with the community.  Willowbrook and a few other churches have been holding this event for about 20 years now.  I told Justin and Mandy that I’d be more than happy to help look for Justin’s ring.

I left for Willowbrook right after I got off from work that same day.  I met with Justin, and he showed me exactly where he was standing in the pit area.  There was one main spot where he was tossing props into the pit throughout one of the Legends of the Pit events this past Sunday.  Justin was wet and muddy, so we thought that was the most likely spot his wedding band would be at.  Justin also told me that his ring fits him a little loose and it’s fallen off before, but he’s always been able to find it.  He normally takes the ring off for this event, but the day was hectic, and he forgot this time.

I started a north/south grid search by where Justin was standing at during the event.  I worked my way over to the main pit area and then to the side where Mandy was sitting at watching the event.  Justin told me that his ring is white gold, so I was only checking signals in the men’s gold range.  I ended up finding 2 other rings, both marked 925 (sterling silver).  I also found a sharp ended tent stake, which I was happy to remove from the pit to prevent any potential injuries.

I cleared the spot Justin was standing at and the main mud pit area.  After about an hour into my search, I was working my grid by where Justin went to see Mandy at in the corner.  I received a nice and shallow 10 on my Minelab Equinox 800.  I bent down to check it with my Garrett Pro-Pointer AT.  I could just barely see it with my eyes, but I could make out the shiny rim of a ring covered up by the grass (photo included below).  It was a men’s 14K white gold wedding ring and based on the size and inscription on the inside (ECC 4:12), I knew this had to be Justin’s wedding band!  I took some close-up photos of the ring and gave Justin a call.  He didn’t answer, but a church member saw me coming up to the door and greeted me.  She told me that Justin was inside with his youth group.  Mostly everyone knew that Justin had lost his ring, so she asked if I had found it.  I said yes and showed her.  She was so excited!  I told her that I was going to surprise Justin by doing a fake out with one of the 925 rings I had found during the search.  This 925 marked ring was a simple silver band and was a very small size, so it definitely couldn’t be his ring.

The lady took me inside the church.  Justin came out of the auditorium and met me in the hallway.  I told him a found a ring and he got excited.  I opened my hand with the 925 ring sitting there and asked if this was his wedding band.  Justin still had a smile on his face, but he said no, unfortunately, it wasn’t his ring.  I then pulled out his real wedding band and said, “hey, I also found this ring.”  Wow!!!  Such joy, happiness, and relief on his face and in his voice.  He gave me a big thank you and hug.  It was a great surprise reveal!  His wife, Mandy had just walked out of the auditorium and Justin told her the good news.  Mandy came over and gave me a big hug and thank you as well.  I then learned that when Justin went to see Mandy during the Legends of the Pit event, he had reached in his pocket and pulled something out.  Having a loose-fitting ring and wet hands definitely would’ve caused the wedding band to easily slip off.

Justin then took me in the auditorium and on stage in front of his youth group.  He introduced me as Christina McCree, a member of The Ring Finders.  Justin then held up his wedding band (symbolizing his marriage of 19 years and counting) and said that Christina found it!  Loud applause and cheering erupted from the youth group.  I said thank you all so much, but I give all glory to God.  The cheering got louder.  It was really such an amazing experience, and all in the house of the Lord.  I’m truly blessed!  Huge thank you to Willowbrook Baptist Church for allowing me to come out and conduct a search.

I really enjoyed meeting Justin, Mandy, and the Willowbrook Baptist Church family.  I’m so happy that I could help and thank God for another successful recovery!  Proud to be a member of The Ring Finders!

The first photo below is a picture I took of the mud pit area after my search.  I circled the area where Justin was standing at and put an X where I found his ring.

Missing…Men’s White and Yellow Gold Wedding Band…Found in Lake Tuscaloosa, Alabama!

  • from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)

I received a phone call from Devin on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 stating that he lost his white and yellow gold wedding band the day prior.  He had taken the ring off and put it in the pocket of his swim trunks while applying sunscreen.  Devin forgot about it and went swimming in Lake Tuscaloosa with his kids.  He didn’t remember that the ring was in his pocket until after he was back in the lake house.  Unfortunately, the wedding band was no longer in the pocket.  Devin searched in the house and his path from the lake, but no ring.  My next day off from work was on Saturday, so we arranged for a search that day.  Lake Tuscaloosa is about a 2.5 hour drive one-way from me, but I definitely don’t mind traveling to help someone find their lost item.

On a very warm and beautiful September Saturday morning, my husband (Lindell), our nephew (Sean), and I headed on our way to Tuscaloosa, Alabama for the ring search.  We arrived just before noon and met up with Devin and his wife, Sarah.  I had Devin and Sarah show us exactly where Devin was in the lake and how far out he went.  Devin thought that the area he was in ranged from about 3-6 feet deep and was a fairly large area.  The water actually stayed shallow for a long way out.  Devin said that there was a sandbar feature where he went upside down under the water playing around trying to scare his kids.  We thought that this was the most likely spot that the wedding band fell out of his pocket.  I began my grid search there.

I had my Blu3 Nemo dive system and Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector with the 15 inch coil.  I made it out to the sandbar feature and began grid searching, slowly working my way in towards the shoreline.  It was only about 3-4 feet deep there.  Thankfully, there weren’t a lot of signals out there.  On about my fourth gridline, I received a shallow and loud 14 on the Nox.  I knew that this was more than likely Devin’s ring.  Diving down with the Nemo, I fanned away some sand and caught a glimpse of a ring.  There it was—Devin’s missing white and yellow gold wedding band!!!  What an amazing sight!

I surfaced and immediately yelled out the good news.  As I was making my way back to the shoreline, everyone began coming down from the lake house for the big reveal.  I presented Devin’s missing wedding band to Devin and Sarah.  Such joy, happiness, and relief!  It’s really such a blessing being able to help others.

A couple of important notes.  Devin and his family are actually from Louisiana.  They were staying at this lake house for safety while Hurricane Ida was making landfall near their home in Louisiana.  Devin and Sarah will be celebrating their 8-year wedding anniversary next month.  Their wedding rings were custom made with yellow gold from Sarah’s parent’s rings.  Their rings have an intertwined design on the outside of the band to symbolize how Devin and Sarah met.  Sentimental and irreplaceable!  I’m so happy that this wedding band will be going back with Devin and Sarah to Louisiana instead of being lost forever.  Its story now gets to continue on…

I give all glory to God and thank Him for another successful ring recovery.  I pray that I can continue helping others for many years to come.  Proud to be a member of The Ring Finders!

Lost Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Found Ocean City NJ by Ring Finders South Jersey

  • from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)

Toleen lost her wedding set in Ocean City, NJ yesterday while spending the day with her family on the beach.  The rings were placed in the pocket of the beach chair and fell in the sand when she folded it up. Her daughter, Alexa, searched and found my Ring Finders South Jersey page when the family realized the rings were lost. While getting some preliminary information before searching, I asked if anyone took any pictures when they sitting on the beach. Her daughter, Liana, had a TikTok video with houses in the background that helped give an approximate location. After roughly 35 minutes of gridding the area, the rings were found! Now Toleen and her family can enjoy the rest of their vacation in Ocean City, NJ.

How to Find a Lost Ring in the Yard with a Metal Detector Ashville, Alabama…

  • from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)

I received a phone call from Shayna on Wednesday evening (August 18, 2021) stating that she had lost her engagement ring on Monday while walking in her yard in Ashville, Alabama.  Shayna and her fiancé tried looking for it with a metal detector, but were unable to find it.  I was off on Friday, so we arranged for a search that morning.

I arrived at their home in Ashville, AL on Friday, August 20, 2021.  Shayna showed me the area in her yard where she thought the ring had slid off her finger.  She told me that the ring was 10k rose gold with diamonds.  It was her fiancé’s grandmother’s ring.  I began a grid search with my Minelab Equinox 800.  After clearing the general area Shayna told me that the ring should be in, I expanded my grid search.  Soon after, Shayna told me that she had to be honest and that it was actually a ring toss.  She said that she had immediately regretted throwing the ring.  This happens a lot; people have disagreements and sometimes rings go flying.  We’re all human.

With this new information, I had Shayna show me exactly where she was walking and how she tossed the ring.  It was a sideways toss.  I also had her fiancé show me where he remembered her standing when it happened.  Her fiancé said that she was about 5-10 feet further than Shayna remembered, which was in an area I hadn’t searched yet.  I expanded my grid search in that direction and soon after I found Shayna’s ring!  The grass was on the taller side, so it easily hid that beautiful 10 karat rose gold engagement ring.  Both Shayna and her fiancé were relieved and glad to have it back!

I’m always happy to help and blessed to be a member of Chris Turner’s online directory of metal detecting specialists, The Ring Finders.
