I received a call about a lost diamond stud earring that had been pulled out of the ear by a hat on a windy day in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. Sometimes these calls can be difficult since the earrings are so small but this day it wasn’t the case!  The earring was found with my eyes sometimes thing s are found without using a metal detector.  She must have stepped on the earring when the hat blew off! it was stuck to her sole of her shoe!  Another great day in Stone Harbor NJ. 

Men’s Tungsten Wedding Band Lost in the Driveway…FOUND Bessemer, Alabama!

  • from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)

On Tuesday afternoon (January 18th, 2022), I was driving on I-65 north traveling home to Huntsville, Alabama.  I had just finished a nice long weekend getaway at Panama City Beach, Florida.  I was visiting my parents at a condo they were renting and went metal detecting with my dad.

I was towards the end of my 6-hour trip back and had just passed the Birmingham area when I received a text message from Daniel.  I had my car read the message and discovered that Daniel had lost his Tungsten wedding band somewhere in his gravel driveway in Bessemer, AL.  Perfect timing!  I was literally 40 minutes from his location and had all of my metal detecting gear in my car.  Had I been in Huntsville, it would’ve added an extra hour to my travel time.  I immediately called Daniel, told him where I was, and asked if I could reroute to his location.  He said absolutely!  I got off at the next exit, back on I-65 (but now in the southbound lane), and was on my way to Bessemer!

I met Daniel at the end of his driveway.  I didn’t want to pull in too far depending on where he lost his wedding band.  Daniel had been working outside all morning.  He explained that his driveway floods a lot and he was adding gravel to stop some of the flow until a permanent fix could be put in.  He also cut up a tree.  He wore gloves the entire time and knew he had his ring on, because he felt it vibrating on his finger when he was running the chainsaw.  After finishing up that work, he took off his gloves while sitting in his truck.  He got out and soon after noticed that his wedding band was missing.  Daniel also mentioned that he recently lost a lot of weight, and the ring was fitting very loose.  Plus, it was cold outside and his hands were wet, so perfect scenario for a ring to slid off.

I started searching where Daniel was laying the gravel in his driveway.  I found a penny and some junk metal.  There were a couple of iffy signals in about 6-12 inches of water.  If necessary, I was going to come back at the very end of the search and check those targets with my sand scoop.  I moved to the next location where Daniel was cutting up the tree.  No ring.  I then asked to search Daniel’s gloves and truck, because taking off the gloves would’ve been the most likely time that his ring would’ve come off.  Still no ring.

I asked Daniel where he was parked when he took his gloves off and got out of his truck.  I thought his wedding band might have landed in his lap and then rolled onto the ground when he got out.  I started searching that area.  I checked one signal with my pinpointer, but the target was beneath the surface.  As I was standing up, I caught a glimpse of his silver Tungsten ring just a few inches away!  I think I uncovered it when I swung my coil and knocked away some wet grass and leaves.  I told Daniel that I had just spotted it.  He caught a glimpse as well and was overcome with joy and relief!  He was also very thankful for my assistance and quick response time.  I have to say that these recoveries never get old, and they are the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done!

Daniel showed me a video of how bad his driveway floods.  Based on that video, his ring could’ve easily washed away if it wasn’t found that day, making for an extremely difficult recovery.  But I just happened to be in the right place at the right time.  God is so good!  I thank and praise Him for another successful ring recovery and safe trip home!  I’m always happy to help and very blessed to be a member of The Ring Finders!  Looking forward to the next adventure…

Men’s Gold Pinky Ring Lost in the Front Yard…FOUND Harvest, Alabama!

On Sunday afternoon (December 5th, 2021), I received a call from a distraught Kathy regarding her son, Cain’s, lost gold ring.  The 14K yellow gold pinky ring was a cherished, early Christmas gift for Cain.  He was only wearing it for about 3-4 hours before it was lost.  Cain had stepped outside into the front yard and saw the ring on his finger.  It was loose fitting, so he thought that he should take it off until it could be resized.  Cain forgot about it and tossed 2 items in the yard, went inside the house, came back outside, and noticed that the ring was gone!  The family went out and bought a metal detector, but was unable to find the ring.  They came across The Ring Finders website while searching online for a detector.  They decided that contacting a Ring Finder would be their best option to find Cain’s missing gold ring.

This was actually my closest ring search.  They literally live less than 10 minutes from me.  I was onsite within 30 minutes from my call with Kathy.  I met with Cain, and he showed me the area he was standing and the motion he used to throw the 2 items.  The first toss was underhand, towards the street.  The second toss was sideways at Cain’s right side.  He was wearing the ring on his right pinky finger.  Cain didn’t see or feel the ring come off, but he thought it would’ve fallen off on the first toss towards the street.

I started my grid search in the direction of Cain’s first toss.  I then searched the direction of Cain’s second toss.  Next, I expanded my search across the street in the neighbor’s yard.  Then I searched the left side of the yard.  I was coming up empty handed and was very perplexed.  I had expanded my grid search 360 degrees and didn’t find Cain’s ring.  I even searched the yard a second time using a cross-grid just to be sure.  I was discussing all the possibilities with Cain and asking more questions to see if he had any other ideas of where his ring could have ended up.  Cain mentioned a signal he had on the metal detector he bought, but was never able to find out what it was.  It was over near a cane palm tree.  We went over and checked it out, but it turned out to be a false signal.

I then remembered the way Cain reenacted the second toss.  It was to his right side, but there was a slight chance that his ring went behind him and to the corner.  I did check the grass by the house in that direction, but I didn’t check the flower bed/shrub area.  It seemed very unlikely that his ring went that far and in that direction, but I’ve been doing this long enough to know that rings always end up where they shouldn’t be.  I went over and started searching the flower bed.  Sure enough, I get a shallow gold tone.  I bend down to check the signal and there’s Cain’s gold ring!  It was lying next to a hose, just slightly covered up.  Cain was behind me and didn’t realize that I found his ring.  I called him over in a normal voice and asked, “hey, what’s this?”  Cain looks down to investigate and quickly realized that it was his ring!  Such a joyful moment and the exact reason why I do this!

I give so much praise and glory to God for this ring recovery!  This search had the potential to be a no find.  I’m so thankful that we searched that last possibility, even though his ring shouldn’t have been there.  It must’ve taken the perfect path or bounce through the shrub to land at that spot.  Another great reminder to check every spot possible no matter the odds.

I’m so happy that Cain has his treasured gold pinky ring back!  I’m very blessed to be a member of The Ring Finders!  I await my next mission…

FOUND…Men’s Tungsten Wedding Band Lost While Throwing Acorns Houston, Alabama!

On Sunday afternoon (November 21st, 2021), I received a call from Drew regarding his lost Tungsten wedding band.  Drew had just gotten married 8 days prior and was on his honeymoon at a lake house in Houston, Alabama.  Not used to wearing a ring, Drew was fidgeting with the wedding band and moved it over to his pinky finger.  He was throwing some acorns when the ring flew off his finger into the leaves next to the walkway leading down to the lake.  Drew spent a good amount of time looking through the leaves, but was unable to locate his ring.  Realizing that he would need a metal detector to find it, he went online to rent or buy one.  That’s when Drew came across The Ring Finders, a metal detecting service that he didn’t know existed.

When I received Drew’s call, I was actually in the process of wrapping up a metal detecting hunt I was on with some friends.  I had a quick bite to eat and was on my way for the 1.5-hour trip out to Smith Lake in Houston, AL.  I met with Drew and his wife, Sidney, at the lake house.  They took me down to the area where Drew was tossing the acorns.  The walkway was fairly steep, so we were hoping that the ring didn’t land further down the hill or in the water.

I began my search with my Minelab Equinox 800 at the spot they thought his ring had landed.  Within a matter of minutes, I had located Drew’s missing Tungsten wedding band!  It was a quick search to find his ring; however, it was nearly impossible to locate it without the help of a metal detector.  I was wearing black detecting gloves and we couldn’t see the black colored ring in my hand when I first picked it up with some leaves.

Drew and Sidney were actually leaving the lake house the following day heading home to Columbus, Mississippi.  If Drew’s wedding band wasn’t found that Sunday when he called me, then he’d have to make a trip back out to find it.  Thankfully, that wasn’t necessary.  I give thanks to the Lord for another safe trip and successful ring recovery!  I look forward to the next adventure…

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

  • from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)

Christina McCree – Ring Finder for North Alabama and surrounding areas…call or text ASAP, anytime 24/7…610-504-6135

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.
