2 Recoveries In One Day

from Sea Isle City (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-856-617-4641

A stellar day with my ring recovery mentor Edward Cropski. I got a call from a crying woman who lost her ring in the surf in Atlantic City. Then a few minutes later I got a call by a man who lost his wedding band in Brigantine. Ed and I went to Brigantine first. When Ed turned his machine on, the ring was right under his coil! Needless to say the family was much appreciative. Then off to AC we went. After about a little over an hour my Foxy Noxy gave me a solid 10 signal. Bam! There was the ring. When I brought it to her she began to cry tears of joy. Probably my best find to date. It’s very satisfying to return an heirloom when someone thinks it’s gone forever!!!

This is my official 4th and 5th recovery. I have just retired from 25 yrs of Law Enforcement service and can dedicate my time to doing recoveries.

LOST WEDDING RING IN WAIKIKI FOUND

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

This ring find started in the late evening around 9:00pm on June 16th. I noticed on craigslist an ad that said they lost their wedding ring in Waikiki. I respond to the ad and got a call back from Jay. Asked him a bunch of questions and Apparently there were 3 other detectors who tried looking for it and didn’t find it. I was a bit hesitant to go out and look knowingly that there were 3 others who looked and supposedly didn’t find it. I was hoping that someone didn’t find it or worse they may have found it but wasn’t truthful. My gut was telling me to go out there and help them so, I did. I let Jay know that I’m on my way and to make sure NO MORE METAL DETECTORS go through the area. I get to the beach and meet up with Jay and started to look… there in the search site was almost 60 drunk people partying on the beach, beer cans, rubbish, rough waves and a lot of coins. About 4 hours later I get a nice tone while I’m in chest deep water… there in my scoop is a beautiful 3.8 karat wedding ring. I look towards shore and turn on my headlamp so Jay can see me and start nodding my head so he knows the ring is found. I give a loud shout of praise and I hear the people on the beach yelling ” YOU FOUND IT?” as I reply “YES”. The people on the beach gathered around as I presented Jay His wife ring back. All i could hear were people yelling and excited that the ring was found. Jay and I both agreed to let his wife know so she could enjoy the return of here precious ring. Another successful recovery and another honeymoon saved. WHAT A GREAT FATHERS DAY GIFT!!!

Mahalo and LIVE ALOHA

 

 

 

LOST WEDDING RING IN WAIKIKI… FOUND!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

This recovery started on June 27th with phone tag between Gabriel and myself late in the evening. Gabriel left me an email around noon time that explained He lost His wedding ring in the water at Waikiki. I knew Waikiki was a heavily hunted spot for metal detectors and needed to get down there ASAP before this ring is gone forever. I continued to call and email Gabriel until we finally got ahold of each other. I drove out to met up with the couple who are here on their honeymoon from Alberta Canada. We headed to the beach which we stood on the shoreline and I tried to gather as much information as possible. Gabriel explained to me where He and His wife were sitting and where they entered the water. This helped and really painted a picture for me which I was able to narrow down the search site. I encouraged the couple to pray and I let them know that if I find the ring while in the water since it’s dark I will turn on my head lamp and look towards them and make a nodding motion so they will know that the ring is found. I started my search and after a few passes I pick up a penny and a dime. And as i continued to look I get a great tone and start to dig… I hear something in the scoop and it sounds like a RING. I pulled out my Xtreme scoop from the water and there inside and is a 14K white Gold mens wedding band with the inscription of June 23, 2018. I knew it was Gabriels ring! I turned on my headlamp, made the nodding motion towards the anticipating couple on the shoreline and gave a loud shout of JOY. I headed back to shore where I could hear the couple talking… both excited and shocked. So, as I approched the couple who were stand anticipating the good news and extend my hand with Gabriels ring at the end of my fingertips… they both agreed that that it was his lost ring and now its found! They were amazed that I found it and in that short amount of time. It was with Gabriels help that put me in the right spot and it was definitely an ANSWERED PRAY ON ALL OF OUR REQUESTS.

Another successful recovery. Mahalo to Gabriel and Nancy May you guys enjoy your honeymoon / vacation the way you all deserve in Hawaii… TO LIVE ALOHA!

TheRingFinders Metal detecting service helped find & return 2 Lost rings in the sand at a San Diego beach. OPEN NOW 24/7 CALL 760 889 2751

I received a call from John Hughes who is a member of Theringfinders,also a real great friend that asked to take a call He just got,unfortunately John wasn’t able to make it at the drop of a hat like most calls happen to be.However we do work as a team in San Diego county so that one or both of us is always available to help others in need.

In less than 20 minutes I was there at the scene of the lost rings and got to meet Emma who had 3 sentimental silver precious metals  fall out of a pocket on to the soft sand. She showed me 1 silver ring she found but the other 2 disappeared into the abyssal dry sand along the North county retreating cliff.

Fortunately this was an easy search as I turned on my Metal Detector & swung over the area instantaneously hearing the sound of two dimes 8” apart from each other…((BOOM))…there they were hidden!

Thankfully Emma was reunited with her rings before the rising high tide came up to the cliff but asked me what she owed for my service? So I said as usual; That I do not have a charge but sometimes receive rewards,,although it doesn’t really matter because I enjoy helping people for the thrill of the hunt for lost smiles which is the upmost rewarding to me!

5 minute hunt… 14k white gold wedding band lost, found, and returned! TRF Celina, Ohio

from Celina (Ohio, United States)
Contact: 1-419-305-9549

I received a call Wednesday (6/20/18) from Tim. While doing some yard work and planting some bushes at his home in Botkins Ohio the previous Friday he had realized that he had lost his wedding ring.

His 14k white gold wedding band had been a replacement for a wedding ring that he had lost a few years before. It had always fit a little loose and after planting the first bush he noticed it lying on the ground. He quickly picked it up and placed it back on his finger while thinking to himself that he really needed to get something done about the loose fit to avoid losing it. Minutes later after finishing his yard work he realized he had lost the ring yet again before he made it into the house. He related his story to me telling me that he was fairly confident that he knew a general area where it may have been lost. He was reviewing his options on what he should do. Should I buy a metal detector and try to locate it? Should I try to order a new ring? (Kind of pricey to keep doing that.)

After a few questions I told him that I was fairly confident is that it could successfully be recovered and most likely in a very short amount of time. It had too most likely be in the area he thought and right on top of the ground. We made plans to get together Saturday (6/23/18).

Since the area was small and the target should be right on the surface of the ground I thought it might be fun to bring along a second metal detector so that he could try his hand at it as well. I set the detector up for him and after taking a few minutes to show him what a white gold ring would ring up like on the machine and explaining that it should be right on the surface of the ground we were off and looking for his missing ring.

Imagine the surprise when 5 minutes or so later I came back to where he was searching and asked his wife if she could take a picture for me. She kindly replied that she could take a picture for me and then I turned to Tim and asked him if a picture of this would be good.

I gladly held my hand out and handed him back his lost wedding ring!

5-minute hunt… 14k white gold wedding band recovered and returned…. Happy to see the ring returned and another happy ending! So glad to be a part of it!

LOST WEDDING RING HALE KOA WAIKIKI FOUND

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

On April 10 2018 I was in class and got a call from Matt who just arrived today with his family and they are on vacation. He informs me that he lost his wedding ring while playing in the water with his beautiful daughter. I tell Matt to give me an Hour and a half because my detector is on the other side of the island.  In the meantime while I’m heading out to get my gear I called matt and asked him to pull up google maps and make me a map. I asked him to try and locate the spot where he believes the ring came off and draw a circle on the map to limit my search area. I asked if he could put me in the right area by narrowing my search site as it was 4:30pm and the sun was on its way down. Well, after much traffic I arrive and meet up with Matt. I get to the beach and gear up. After a few passes I get a great tone/reading. I look in my scoop and there it is Matts wedding. I turn to MATT who is looking on the shoreline and ask him ” What kind of wedding band?” Which I knew very well it’s his. He says “it’s a gold wedding band… did you find it?” I tell him to take a look in the scoop and the sheer JOY that came from his response “YES I CANT BELIVE IT!” was very comforting. As we were leaving BOTH very excited I asked MATT… So, what do you think your wife will say? He smiles and says she will be pleasantly surprised! Another recovery with a happy heart! Now you can enjoy the island and have a great vacation! Best wishes and GOD BLESS. 

Lost Tungsten wedding band in Trussville, Alabama found!

from Pinson (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-205-283-7292

I was contacted by Dorian Barrett about her husband Tarrence losing his Tungsten wedding band while working out in the yard. Mrs. Barrett called and advised that her husband had lost his wedding band while working out in the yard this past weekend. She said that they searched the area and could not find it, she knew the area about were it could be.  After searching various outlets she came across the web site.

When she called, I was at the fire station but we decided on when the best time when her and her husband could be there. This morning one 3/7/2018 I met her husband Tarrence at there residence and he began telling me about the morning that he lost it. He showed me the area when he felt it come off, he believed that it went into a flower bed that was covered in leave and small branches. After getting a visual of the area I came up with a plan to start in the yard were he felt it fly off his finger and work toward the flower bed. A quick search of the grassy area produced only deep tones several inches deep but those targets were to deep to be the ring .  After about 10 minutes of searching the flower bed with my small hand held pinpointer I found the Tungsten band sitting on edge under about 3 inches of leaves beside the stalk of a flowing bush.

Both Dorian and Tarrence were happy that I was able to recover the ring for them. It is always a good feeling to return something lost and seeing the look on their face when you hand it over to them. It was a good morning.

Wedding Band found in North Malibu

from Seal Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-951-217-5101

Mike Hall called me on a Saturday night. He was pretty frantic; the previous evening he was eating at a restaurant in north Malibu by Zuma Beach and playing with his son after dinner in the sand, and his wedding band came flying off. It was dark out, so they did a quick search, but came up empty handed. I moved some plans around and met him out there the next day, Sunday evening, after traffic died down. It still took about two & a half hours to make the 80 mile drive. I got there, and Mike and his family were nice enough to save a parking spot for me right next to the sand. I asked him to try his best to remember exactly where he was in the sand when he was playing with his son, in relation to the parking lot, trash cans, and surrounding in general. I took out my Whites Duo Field Pulse machine and started to grid the area. I was finding many trash targets like small nails and bottle caps, but after more guidance from Mike and his son, I was able to narrow down the search pattern to a strip at the back of the beach just parallel to the cars. It wasn’t long before I heard a loud repeatable signal that sounded promising. One scoop, and there was Mike’s ring. He was elated and the whole family was jumping for joy. He then shared the story of the significance of the ring’s history. The ring had been passed down for generations, from his great-grandfather, down to him. What really touched my heart, was that his young son who was there, asked his dad, “How can I get married someday, dad, if the ring isn’t there to be passed down to me?”

Something Fishy!

from Orange (California, United States)
Contact: 1-951-505-9849

Tom called and said he had lost his ring in his Koi fish pond while putting in a bubbler system for the fish.
He noted that his ring was loose, just prior to going in the water, and thought “I Better be careful and not lose it.”
After putting in the bubbler system, that evening he went to take it off and put it on his dresser as usual, and noticed it was gone.
Visually searching the pond, which was fairly clear and just had 1″ gravel on the bottom, but could not see it. He called me and we set up a time to meet. Upon arrival, we went to the pond and he offered waders, but I wore my shorts and water sandals in prep. He said it was really cold, and I said not to worry, I am used to the beach.
It was deeper that I thought, about 2′ and Coooollllddd as heck!
I pretended it was not that cold, and began searching with my AT-MAX. Tom watched a minute then went over to roll up the hose, and I heard him shout “I Found it!”.
He forgot that he had hosed off the patio after finishing in the pond, and it must have slipped off then, and it was just under a chair on the patio. I was happy he found it, but happier to get out of that freezing water. lol
Though I did not find it with my detector, he said if I had not come out there, he would not have looked over there and I thought that a gardener, or someone else may have found it instead. Such a nice guy, and he told me the story of why the ring meant so much to him, and I felt glad I had a part in finding the ring, even though my detector didn’t find it, but my presence did.
