MASSIVE 18k WEDDING BAND LOST IN SHADOW LAKE COBOCONK ON 🇨🇦

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Brampton residents Kultaran and her husband joined a group of Friends at a beautiful cottage retreat near Coboconk, Ontario on beautiful Shadown Lake of the Kawartha Lakes Region!

Shadow Lake is known for exceptional boating and fishing but is a very weedy lake.

The couple could not meet me on site as they had plans but we received permission from the gracious cottage owners whom the Husband assisted me by being my safety spotter.

I attempted the recovery with a lazy “D” grid pattern using the DIVE BLU3 NEMO hookah system which has a 10’ hose depth. Unfortunately, I had to switch to my scuba gear after 1 hour as I had deeper depth to move out to. Within 30 minutes I was able to locate the ring in 1 1/2’ of muck!!

Next, came a phone call to surprise them that I located and recovered his stunning 18k white gold massive wedding band! The 11 diamonds were sparkling!

Check out the video of this incredible recovery;

Few days later I met up with Kultaran to return her husbands stunning wedding band!

Thank you Kultaran for your generous donation the the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation for my “pay-it-forward” program! She receives a tax receipt from the Foundation!!

  

 

So thrilled to

Grasonville MD Lost ring

  • from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)

Grasonville MD. Salt water, SCUBA 3 mil wetsuit, Excalibur detector, Garrett Pro and Vibra-quatic probes. Time 1:45 hours depth 4 to 7 feet.

I think it is important to also post the unrecovered calls. I suggest that even the rare “misses” are successful, in that the client knows he or she did all they could to find the item. I detail these events so you can learn and apply to your own experience.

After calling two other searchers, a very nice lady called about her lost her engagement ring. Two weeks before, while at Harris Crab House (a great restaurant) the diamond ring went missing. She was pretty sure that when the ring slipped off, it dropped in-between two boards, and went into 8 to 10 feet deep water below the dock. She immediately got a local diver (without a detector) to search, but he couldn’t find the ring. She then had a wading metal detectorist look, but he didn’t have SCUBA.

I called the manager and got permission to dive on the next Sunday morning. When I arrived, managers Bob and Mike were very accommodating. Bob told me the previous detectorist had been there twice. He also told me that he had experienced two other lost rings which were eventually found in the trash.

The entry depth was about 7 feet, but under the dock it was 4 feet deep. I asked the client to re-enact what happened. I then dropped a weighted line between the boards to where the ring fell. Before submerging, I checked the boards under the dock in case the ring landed on a cross beam.

The target area was small and had visibility of about six inches, so I initially used a 3’x 3’ PVC grid with the probes. I then searched the area again with the Excalibur detector. In the event the ring rolled off the dock or was moved, I extended my search area by several yards, but I only found trash.

I suppose it’s possible the ring didn’t actually make it into the water, or one or the other searchers accidently moved it. Being on SCUBA allowed me to get within inches of the bottom and have visual conformation on all targets. No matter what, I feel really bad I couldn’t find this nice lady’s ring.

If I can be of service, the fastest way to get me is by text at 703-598-1435. I will contact you back ASAP.

 

 

 

 

 

Lost Gold Braclet Lake Minnetonka Wayzata Minnesota

  • from Minnetonka (Minnesota, United States)
Contact:

Ann Mcdonalds daughter dropped her 18 K gold braclet of the dock in lake Minnetonka in 20 feet of water. I managed to recover her barclet after about an hour of scuba diving and using my trusty Minelab Metal Detector first we had to remove all the lawn chairs and beer can to find the signal. I really enjoyed the this dive, it always makes my day when they say that was incredable like I was magician with a magic hat. I love it20140902_173850
