Ring Lost at Ribfest found. Lake in the Hills, Il.

  • from Rockford (Illinois, United States)

The Morning of July 11th, 2022 I received a voicemail from Dana. She said that her husband had lost his wedding ring the night before at the annual Ribfest near their home. She said that the crews were there taking down the tables and chairs but they had already secured permission from the crew and the local police to conduct a search. I brought along my wife Jennifer since the ring was lost in such a large area, I figured 2 people could cover more ground much quicker.  After meeting up with Dana and her husband John we grabbed our gear and the 4 of us walked over to the area where John had been sitting during the festivities. John gave us a rough outline of the areas where he had moved around to during his time there and where he had been sitting most of that time. I decided to start at the farthest point and work back towards where John had been sitting,  while that’s where Jen started. John and Dana said they were going to walk back home and to call or text them if we found it. Before I could get to the far end Jen said she had a strong, shallow signal, so I went back to help her retrieve it from the hard packed dirt. Bam! Jen’s first signal! Right where John said he was sitting was John’s ring! In less than 10 minutes I sent Dana a text with pictures saying “Good news!!”

3 Gold and diamond rings lost for four months recovered. Pingree Grove, Illinois

I received a text from Melissa letting me know that she’d heard about me on The Ring Finders website. She said that she had lost her wedding rings in her backyard back in May which was a little over four months ago.  I assured her that if she indeed did lose them in the backyard they should be pretty easy to find.  After a few weeks we were able to set up a time to do the search.  She gave me the story of how she thought that the rings were lost. Her and her husband were having a water ballon fight with their son in their backyard.  When she went inside later in the day she noticed that her rings were missing. So I started a grid search on the left side of the backyard and I carefully worked my way across the the yard.  I was running out of space quickly but  after about a hour of  searching and only about 2 passes left before covering the entire yard I got a loud double beep! I knew that it was the rings! As i looked down i could see one laying in a small patch of dirt without any grass, and as I was bending over to grab it I spotted a second one about a foot away! That’s 2! The other one couldn’t be far. After a couple of swings about 4 feet away was the 3rd one!! Melissa was very emotional after I handed her the rings and told me how the 2 wedding bands were constructed from jewlery from living and passed family members! I was so happy to be able to help!
