Ring lost in the sand on San Diego Bay Found!

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Zack left an urgent message on my cell phone voice mail stating that he had lost his 4 day old wedding ring in the sand across the street from where he was staying on his honeymoon. When I finally heard the message, I called him back for the details and arranged to meet him there at 11pm. We both arrived a bit early and Zack escorted me down to the area were he had lost it 3 hours earlier. He had been brushing sand off his hands by rubbing them on his pants when the unthinkable happened……the ring went flying into the sand and disappeared. Zack contemplated renting or buying a detector but found The Ring Finders online and decided to give us a try. Initially, I was told it was a silver ring, so, I expected a high pitched screamer for a target on my E-trac. Right after I fired my machine up, I get a low pitched, solid 12-06 moaner in my ears on my first swing. I asked again about the metal it was made of, and he said “silver, but it has some gold in it too”. Great, now I need to scoop virtually all non-ferrous sounds, starting with this one. Well, in this case, first time was the charm, as this 12-06 was his ring! So much for it being mainly silver. A happy Zack couldn’t believe I found it so quick. Getting me to the right spot was the key here, so, good job Zack! I hope you and your new bride enjoy the rest of your stay here. Great to meet you and thank you for the reward.

  • from Newark (Ohio, United States)

About two weekends ago, I received an email  from a guy that has lost his wedding band. Over the weekend as he was raking and putting leave in trash bags. As he notice that his ring was missing.  He has been looking for the ring since. Dumping the bags full of leaves and searching though them with his bare hands. After a few emails, a search date was set. I show up and started my search, after about a hour the ring was found in one the the many piles from dumping the bags. He was very happy to have the ring back.

Lost ring at Coronado Beach Found!

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

      As I was finishing up the story of my last ring recovery, I received a call from Scott who was attending a wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado. You my remember this hotel if you’ve seen the movie, Some Like it Hot, with Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis. Anyway, he was seated with his family at some tables outside on the sand when he decided to let his young daughter handle his wedding ring. Even though he impressed upon her the importance of a wedding ring, she had no problem burying it in the sand! After an attempt to sift through the sand with fingers without success, he searched online for help and contacted me through the Ring Finders site. As luck would have it, I was able to come right over and do a search before dinner figuring it should be a fairly easy recovery since they hadn’t left the search area and it was a very small area to search. If course, I’ve thought that in the past at times, and had long, difficult ones instead.

      This time we were in luck and it took maybe two swings of the loop before I had a nice gold sound in my sites. About 3 inches under the sand I pulled out Scott’s  nice wedding band. It had taken me 100 time longer to find a parking spot at the beach that day than the ring! All turned out well and no major delays in the after-wedding festivities. As Scott found out, save your money buying or renting a metal detector to use yourself, and get not only a detector, but, someone who has some experience using one too. It can save a lot of time and frustration. It was  a pleasure to meet you Scott, and thanks for the reward to help keep this service going.

Lost Silver Ring at Kits Beach, Vancouver…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)


I get an email yesterday that a lady lost 3 silver rings at the beach, after calling her I find out that she lost them the day before…So its been over 24 hours and I know that people search that beach of a night and early morning and the chances are that someone may have beaten us to the rings.

I meet with the young lady and her man and they show me the area the rings were lost, after a north, south grid search of the area I don’t find the rings. I now will ask my friends who hunt Kits Beach if they know anyone who has found them the rings and offer the reward to them.

As I was searching the area I had a man come up and tell me a young lady lost her ring and ask if I could help. I said sure and asked him to tell her to come over and she did, i told her I’d be over as soon as I finished my grid search.

I walked 50 yards over and met the young lady who showed me the area the ring was flipped off her towel. I started my grid search and after a minute or two I ask if she could move her bike so I could check near there…

Well there it was! Just inches under the sand right where her bike was. I was able to dig it up and surprise her before she knew I found it.

Every Ring has a story attached it and that story ends when it is lost…I love to help continue that story by finding it for them!

I love my job!

Lost something? Call ASAP!

Thanks for reading my blog, there is a video below of the search.


Love story in East Lansing, Michigan has happy ending

  • from Grand Rapids (Michigan, United States)

Drainage ditch at left, walking path at right, ring found in tall grass.

I recieved a call from Russ VanMaele, an Undergrad student at Michigan State, whos girlfriend lost her silver ring with a Tourquoise stone. He said the ring had a lot of sentimental value and wanted to find it for his girlfriend.

It was a stormy week and the running path and drainage ditch that runs along side it was flooding over the path. The young lovers were playing in muddy knee deep water after the storm, with wet hands her ring fell into the water. At that moment Russ had the wherewithall to turn around and note the spot where it dropped was between the ditch and the path and marked by two trees across the path.  

I met Russ at Abbot Place Apartments a couple days after his call and after showing me the area I went to work. I used my Bounty Hunter Time Ranger but wasn’t comfortable in the high Elephant grass so I got out my CZ21 which was heavier and has a 10 inch coil. After mowing down  the tall grass with my feet and hands and pushing the coil in between heavy clumps of grass I heard a faint beep and started cutting grass and digging up an inch of mud and there it was. It took about twenty minutes to find the ring but I was covered with at least 50 mosquito bites, one cut finger from a sharp piece of grass and sweat from head to toe.

I went over to Russ who was doing some paperwork on his computer for school and showed him the ring. His great big grin was my immediate reward and he said I can’t believe you found it. I said it is amazing that he thought of looking on the internet and than finding me and me driving 50 miles to the center of Michigan to a drainage ditch and finding the ring.

I drove off and saw Russ talking to his girlfriend on his cell and he was still smiling. He waved goodbye. Russ will email me a picture of his girlfriend getting her ring back and putting it on the Book of Smiles.

Metal Detecting English Bay Beach for lost Silver Native Bracelet and Silver Ring

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Another night hunt, two in a row…I was at work when I received a call from a young lady who lost her silver native bracelet and silver ring at English Bay Beach in Vancouver.

She tells me that she was enjoying the beach with her son on one of our hottest days of the year, she took off her jewellery to put some suntan lotion on and placed it on the blanket.

When she was ready to head home she picks up the blanket and shakes off the sand not remembering that her bracelet and ring was on it…

An hour and a half goes by and she realizes that she hasn’t got her cherished jewellery, the bracelet was given to her 28 years ago by her father and the ring she had for 20 years.

Needless to say she was devastated, she went back to the beach and searched but did not find what she was looking for…

With the help of the lifeguards that saw her searching the beach she contacted me, I came out after work at around 11:15 pm and she showed me the area.

I received a couple of signals and this got her so excited but unfortunately it was just some beer caps. I finished the grid search of the area then started to expand the grid when I received another signal.

I slowly dug the sand with scoop and as I lifted it out from the sand I could see silver and at that moment I heard her scream! There in my sand scoop was both ring and bracelet!

I was hugged and thanked as she was very grateful that she had her jewellery back.

I love my job!
