I received a call Late Tuesday from Gianna telling me her husband was out shoveling snow and when he came into the house He couldn’t find his phone he had it in his pocket and realized it must have come out in the snow.  I ws told they looked for it till it got dark and then called me.

I was out Wednesday mourning with my metal detector and started the search in the front yard near the house.  It didn’t take long before I got a very strong signal and after moving the snow from on top there it was.  I gave the phone Gianna who turned it on and it came to life like it was never in the snow

Cell phone lost while sledding in Thornden Park, Syracuse NY FOUND

  • from Syracuse (New York, United States)

February 2nd 2021 a young man (Phillip) calls me and states that he has lost his cell phone while sledding down the hills in Thornden Park in Syracuse NY.  It’s 9:00 p.m. so I make arrangements to meet him the next day at the park to search for the phone. When I meet Phillip he states that he is from Germany and is here in Syracuse attending the Newhouse School of Broadcasting,  part of Syracuse University.  He and his buddy have never seen so much snow before as in Germany they do get snow but NOT THIS MUCH.  Someone had told him about sledding down the hill here in Thornden Park and that all they needed was a piece of cardboard to make a sled, so off our two friends from Germany go to “play in the snow”.  Well of course while going down the hill he loses his cell phone.  This phone not only is his connection to his mother and father in Germany, but also has important information on it about his studies here in the USA.  If at all possible I must find this phone for him.

While questioning Phillip I found out that he only went down the hill twice before he noticed that he had lost his phone.  After losing his phone using his buddy’s phone he called his phone but they could not here his phone ringing. He then put on his “ear buds” and walked around and was able to “connect” to the phone.  He walked up and down the hill and in doing so “lost” the signal so he had a area about 100′ down the hill by 40′ along the hill that he was quite sure the phone was.  He and his buddy were digging and searching for the phone using the signal from to ear buds when the phone battery went down.  They searched into the night, and then using his buddy’s phone search and found “The Ring Finders” and myself.

It’s the next day that we had another 8″ of snow last night so all signs of sledding and searching had been covered up, but Phillip told me the approximate area that he had sled down, so off I go up to my knees in new and old snow.  We work up and down the hill moving along the area where he was sure he had gone down yesterday.  Lots of “hits” but when dug, they were all below the grass.  Certainly not his phone.  After covering and doing a grid search of the area where he was sure he had slid yesterday, we checked out the “launching” area where he would have stated the slide down the hill.  Still no phone. It’s been about 1 1/2 hour and I’m getting tired and wet, but I have to get his phone tonight if there is any chance of saving it from getting wet inside and “blowing it up”   We then go back down the hill to expand the search both along the hill and further down the hill, and the first search further to the left of where he was sure he wasn’t, BINGO, the phone.

I told Phillip how to resurrect his phone. DO NOT RECHARGE IT YET.  BUY SOME WHITE RICE AND PUT THE CELL PHONE AND THE RICE INTO A ZIP LOCK BAG, SEAL THE BAG AND LET IT STAND FOR 72 HOURS.  Then plug it in, cross your fingers and do a little prayer.  I think his phone will be OK.

   

Lost ring in the snow

  • from Marietta (Ohio, United States)

I was contacted last week about a lost ring. Here is his story in his words

After returning home on a snowy evening I, being the good husband I am, threw a snowball at my wife. When I went to shake the snow off of my hand, my wedding ring flew off of my finger. My wife and I searched for three days with no luck finding it. We had almost given up hope when we found Steve Wagner on the theRingFinders.com website online. We called him and Steve came the next day and found the ring within 10 minutes. Steve was really kind and friendly and did a wonderful job. He really knows what he is doing. We are so happy to have our ring back and would confidently recommend Steve for any circumstance where you need to make use of a metal detector!

Thanks again Steve!

Wedding ring lost in the snow in the backyard, Manlius – Syracuse New York FOUND

  • from Syracuse (New York, United States)

I received a phone call from Jason who lost his ring in his backyard last night.  He said that while trying to get his dog to come into the house and swinging his arm showing the dog where to go, his ring came off, hit the side of the house and then disappeared.  Jason did not sleep well this night thinking about his lost ring, so in the morning he went to a local store to purchase a in-expensive metal detector.  After a couple of hours using his new detector and finding nothing, Jason’s wife search on Goggle, “how do I find my ring lost in my backyard” and up popped, “The Ring Finders” website.  A few clicks later she found me and gave me a call.

I showed up and after about 15 minutes I found Jason’s ring some 20′ away under their picnic table.  It’s amazing how far rings can go and where the can land.

Here is a link to my short video showing the recovery of Jason’s ring.   Enjoy.

  • from Newark (Ohio, United States)
Contact:

I received an email about a lost man’s gold wedding ring lost in the snow. We just received about 4 inches of the snow the night before. The ring was lost while removing the snow from the car and shoveling. The ring was somewhere in two snow plies around the cars in the driveway. I was able to come and perform the search the same day. I flatten down the first pile with no luck, then the second pile I got a good beep. Pen pointing closer to the hard snow ball and there was the ring inside. They were very happy to have the ring returned to them. I continued with a prayer and a blessing over this couple.

20180207 Oakville, Ontario Lost 14k gold wedding band in snow FOUND

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

2018-02-07 Oakville, Ontario

I received a text message from a fellow sled head Mark B to let me know his neighbour lost his 14k gold wedding band somewhere in the snow and to call him right away.

I call Tony H immediately. He advised that he was shovelling the snow and also walked down the road. He advised that the snow plow had just gone by. It was -7C and within 20 minutes of speaking to Tony H and headed down to Oakville.

As the story goes, Tony took off his gloves and within 5 minutes realized his wedding band came off. I started to grid search the driveway. Tony felt it could have been on the roadway so I continued onto the roadway. After 40 minutes I was drawn back to the driveway as the more questions I asked I felt he lost it when he took off his gloves. Within 5 minutes and 2′ off the driveway in 1′ of snow….BAM! Had a great tone on my Minelab Excalibur 2!! Tony was a great sport and very happy not to sleep outside in the dog house in the frigid temperatures!

Here’s a little video

 

Georgetown, Ontario~Lost house/car/mail box keys in the snow prepping snow blower!

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

2017-12-26 Georgetown, Ontario

I received a phone call on Boxing Day from a couple from Georgetown a community about 20 minutes south of me.

Overnight there was a really nice snowfall. The husband proceeded out to the back garden shed to start up the snowblower for the first time this winter. He didn’t realize that he had the set of keys (house/mailbox/car/car starter) in an unzipped coat pocket. He went to go move the vehicle and couldn’t find his keys. Both husband and wife looked all over the driveway and yard and turned the house upside down. They felt the keys were lost in the snow.

I headed down within the hour, asked some questions and decided to start in the back in front of the garden shed where the husband pulled out the snow blower. He said he had a hard time starting the snow blower.

Both decided to go back into the home to get warm. Within 5 minutes I found the set of located.

They were very happy not to have to waste the money to replace all the keys not to mention what could of happened if an undesirable found them..
