Platinum Ring Lost in the Snow Recovered Fairfax Virginia

Contact: 1-703-598-1435

On January 15th, 2019 Chris lost his ring while cleaning snow off his car. He and his wife searched the area until dark. They called me and I got there as soon as possible the next day. In the afternoon traffic, it took me over an hour of travel! Now that I’m retired, I can drive there during the day in less than 30 minutes. After Chris’ wife showed me exactly where he was standing and what he was doing, I started the search. I placed my coil where I thought the ring might have landed, and heard a clean target on the second sweep. It was one of the quickest recoveries I have ever experienced!

Wedding Band Recovered in Airdrie, Alberta

from Calgary (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-403-701-1739

February this year has been especially brutal with cold weather, lots of snow and the drifting of said snow.  This weather makes it a busy time for us Ring Finders in the northern climates.   

It never fails to amaze me how oblivious to cold we are in Canada, we brush the snow off our cars with bare hands, scrape windows with bare hands and even throw snowballs with bare hands.  Many times every winter I get calls from folks that have lost rings due to such activity.

Today was no exception, I received a text message from Amanda, her husband had been shoveling the sidewalk in front of his house when he shook his hand to stave off the cold and away went his Gold Wedding Band.  She requested I come out and do a search for them, as they had spent a large amount of time searching to no avail.

When I arrived Amanda greeted me and showed me where her husband had been and approximately where he shook his hand.  From experience, I deduced that the ring would not be in the snow drift, but somewhere on the road which had about 3-4 cm of packed snow on it.

Seven minutes later Amanda and her husband’s ring were reunited.  The ring was in the middle of the road and had been pushed into the packed snow by traffic without damaging the ring.   Amanda was thrilled to have the ring back as you can see by the attached photo.    Thank you, Amanda, for the generous reward.

Remember, wear gloves in the winter and should you lose your precious treasure contact TheRingFinders.com as soon as possible.

Dog walk can be costly!! Roscoe Village area in Chicago.

Received a call from a gentleman who lost his platinum wedding band while walking his dog  at night in the Roscoe Village area of Chicago.

It was dark and he slipped on some ice and may have broken his foot. He limped home and discovered that he no longer had his ring. He went back to the area that night and searched where he might have lost it. Nothing! He was uncertain whether if came off in the fall, or if he lost it coming home after the injury. He sent me an email with a google map image of where he though he fell. Since he was currently at the office with his foot elevated, he was unable to accompany me. After reviewing the image, I began the search using my CTX.  Ten minutes later… BINGO! It was exactly where he thought he fell. Rang up as 12/10 and 11/13.
