Lost ring at Jordanelle: Found

from Provo (Utah, United States)
Contact: 1-801-420-8485

This is a wonderful story. Alex was named after Alexander the Great, and since he has always loved ancient Greek history, his wife bought an ancient Greek silver coin and had it melted and alloyed with gold to make his wedding ring. While swimming with his family at Jordanelle reservoir, the ring popped off his finger and disappeared in about 10 feet of water. He tried diving to find it, but it was hopeless. He found me on TheRingFinders.com. I brought my metal detectors and my floating air supply and spent about 45 minutes groping blindly in the icy waters, but I couldn’t find the ring. The reservoir is at over 6000 feet in elevation, and the late spring water was just too cold to search effectively. I waited a few weeks and, without telling Alex, I returned to search more thoroughly. I found the ring buried under a couple of inches of mud! Alex was thrilled to hear from me that I had found his ring for him.

Alex sent me this kind note: Thank you so much Larry! This is a story that I will tell my kids about one day. I so appreciate your help, there’s no way we would’ve found this ring without you.

I had a call out to Montrose Virginia to recover an academy ring. The owner saw the ring hit the water and put me very close to the target in about 8 feet of water. I’m so happy to have been able to help a true patriot!

Ring Lost Off Dock Recovered SCUBA Diving, Goose Bay Marina, Maryland

from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)
Contact: 1-703-598-1435

A wonderful gentleman in law enforcement told me he lost his ring off a boat dock. After an hour and a half drive, my Dive Master (Mrs. Rob) and I arrived at the marina. Like most dock recoveries, the client had a good idea of where he had lost his ring. There was zero visibility and thick mud in about 6 feet of water. Luckily there was very tittle trash. It must have looked easy to the cheering crowd on the dock, as I found the ring in less than 10 minutes!

Fishing equipment in a lake

from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)
Contact: 1-703-598-1435

Reston VA

Had a call from a gentleman who flipped his kayak in a local lake. He lost some fishing gear and an important set of keys. The depth was over 25 feet in zero visibility, and had no close shore access. To do this search would require hiring a second search & recovery diver, and supplying a boat. I explained to the gentleman that the requirements for conducting a safe search with a chance of recovery would be more costly than replacing the items, and he agreed. I reccommended he call Baldinos locksmith, with whom I have had good experiences. I also suggested he could try using a large magnet on the end of a rope.

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.

We were on our way to a water hunt in Orange County. We end up at Harbor Police office. Tryin to get an OK to dive this area. As you know, things  are never what they seem. We are told of an Officer’s knife dropped close by.

We head to our dive area and do 2 dives in the area, with lots of trash.

Try swingin slow as to not churn up the muck. Ha .. Still an intresting dive. Uncovered all metal in this dive area.

Our time here is over, to be continued…
