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!

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..

I received a phone call from a young man who wishes to remain anonymous.

He mentioned that he was throwing snowballs in the front yard of his rental home and because of the extremely cold weather his 21k gold ring flew off his finger.

I proceed the next day to go immediately after work as it was a short distance away.

I started a grid search using my trusty Minelab Excallibur 2. I took should have had winter gloves on but within 15 minutes and knowing the ring would be just under the snow tucked into the grass I found it!!

He was a very happy young man!!

Received a phone call inquiring if I can metal detect in snow for a lost ring. Of course I said yes. I was unable to make the time frame and sent a local & newly recruited ring finder member Glenn Boles.

I arrived an hour later and offered my assistance.

The client had just left. With-in 10 minutes of her leaving I located her Friend’s missing silver ring. Glenn & I called and asked if she could come back. She offered to bring coffee’s too.

We recreated the motions of finding her Friend’s lost ring. She was overjoyed and advised she will surprise her Friend Christmas Day. The ring was very sentimental.

Lost anniversary ring recovered in Redmond after Washington snowstorm!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-651-4779

Hello everyone, my name is Jason Anderson and I just wanted to use my first post to introduce myself and my services. I am a very determined detectorist and am looking forward to helping reunite you with your lost items in the greater Seattle/Bellevue/Eastside areas.

I am available to hunt for all kinds of lost items, not just rings… and I can travel further for searches on a case-by-case basis. I can even do shallow water hunts if need be.

My first case as a Ringfinder occurred this week after Washington got a bit of a snow storm. A woman had lost her rings in the snow after taking her wet gloves off. She was understandably upset and very hopeful I could help find her rings. I was able to travel to her city the next morning and it proved to be a difficult hunt in the snow… but I found her gold & diamond anniversary band! The other ring was still out there but it was getting dark so I scheduled a return trip to continue searching.

Before I could return, the snow quickly melted in the rain and luckily a neighbor found the remaining ring! All’s well that ends well! She was ecstatic and so am I!

Just remember, if you lost your ring or any other metal items that are important to you: Don’t give up hope, and time is of the essence! Give me a call or email me please! I want to help you find your rings, and your smiles! 🙂

Lost ring Brewerton, New York-found .

I received a call from a gentleman (Jim) who had lost his wedding band.  He stated that he lost it in his yard on November 9th while moving a brush pile of tree branches that had been accumulating over the years. .  It was a 14K white gold band.  Jim had looked for his ring, had moved all the brush to a burn pile, checking every branch to make sure the ring was not on a branch.  He stated that there was lots of leaves, etc. under the pile and even though he carefully had looked in the leaves, etc. the ring was still eluding him.  He looked me up on “The Ring Finders.com” web site hoping that I could find the ring for him and gave me a call.  I was out of town on another search, and would not be home for quite some time, but as he explained the area (his yard) to me I stated that there was no chance of someone else finding his ring so we would get in contact when I returned.

I arrived home for the holidays and Jim and I made plans to look for the ring. It had snowed most days since he had lost the ring, but there was a thaw over the last few days so the snow pack was no not as deep.  On the assigned day it was turning to snow again.  There was about a 3” snow fall during the night and early morning but nothing that would stop the search.

it

I arrived at Jim’s house, introduced myself and unpacked my detector.  Jim escorted me to the area where I set up my detector for the conditions and started the search. It did not take too long before I got that familiar “tone”, and I pulled out my pin pointer.  Jim started to pull back the leaves, etc. and we were both surprised how deep the ring had gone down.  Jim dug down about 4 inches and there is was. Jim’s jaw dropped and he said  “No – No,  I don’t believe it.  There it is” and he pulled it out of the ground, dirty but back into his hand.  I think you can see the thrill, the disbelief, and the happiness on his face in the above picture.

He put the ring on his finger and we walked back to his house to show his wife. Jim’s wife was all smiles, so I have TWO happy customers.  I’ve said this before, “Happy wife means happy life”

Jim and myself said our goodbyes, and he gave me a very nice “finders fee”.  Thank you very much Jim

This points out something that everyone who losses a valuable should do.  If it is lost on public property, (beach, park, sidewalk, etc.), GET IN TOUCH WITH SOMEONE ASAP, as the longer you wait the better chance that someone else finds you valuable. BUT don’t give up on anything lost on private property. .

It was just one of those mornings with a few minutes before having to leave the house so Amy-Rose went to pull a few weeds and toss them into the woods. With birds singing in the background she did not realize that with the weeds so went the 3 car keys and two remotes. It was noon when I started to search for them, in between the shrubs, with very little room to swing a detector’s coil. However with a 3×18 inch search coil I could “jab” into the foliage. About fifteen minutes into the search my ears were rattled with the sound that was either the keys or a large can…Yes it was the ring of keys. The car could now be driven to the dealer and there would be no tow charge or charge for all the keys. I left with one smiling lady in amazement that I had found the keys.

Lost 3 Ring Wedding Set Raking Leaves in Backyard, in Cedar Hill,Tx

from Dallas (Texas, United States)
Contact: 1-972-523-4447

IMG_1494 IMG_1495

We received a call from Christine about 3pm on Sunday afternoon.  She got our name and number from a friend she had told that she had lost her wedding set of 3 rings.

Christine lives on about a acre of land, she had gone out to the back of the property to help her husband bag up some leaves that he had been raking together.  They worked together for about a hour and finished up and carried the bags of leaves up to the garage about a half acre away.   That was when she realized that her Wedding Set (3 rings) was missing.  In a panic, she and her husband looked all over the yard, they dumped the leaf bags out but did not see anything.  They spent several hours looking with no luck.   Later in the day while talking with her friend, she told her about the lost rings.  Her friend said, wait a minute I heard about this website of people who find rings.  She Googled and found “The Ring Finders” website and called Christine back and gave her our number.

It was about 3pm when Christine called and she lived 41 miles from us.  I told her we would be there in about and hour & a half.  We needed to hurry as I was concerned it would get dark and it was already quite cold, and the darkness would only make it colder.   We arrived and got our 2 Garrett AT Pros and Pinpointers out then Christine walked us to the back of the acre of property.  She showed us all the places she walked and was helping her husband with the leaves.   Ellen and I chatted about what area we would grid off visually and began to detect.   Within 10 minutes I hear Ellen say “Here’s One”,  I joined her as we looked through about 4-6 inches of leaves in a pile but nothing else rang up on the detectors.   I told Ellen to keep looking and I ask Christine to show me the bags of leaves, my thinking was that if one ring was in the pile of leaves that they had been bagging then it was likely the other rings would be in the bags of leaves near the garage.   I began to scan the full plastic bags of leaves with my detector and got 3 very light hits.   I kept scanning but nothing else hit so I backed up to the bag with something metal inside.   I tore a small hole in the bag and began to stick my Pinpointer into the bag.  As I got a signal, I used my hand to begin pulling out whatever the metal was.  1st hit was piece of wire, the second was a metal screw and the 3rd hit I could not see it.  Finally I saw a glint of Gold in the bag.  I began to smile but had to fight the leaves to find it, and finally the smallest of the 3 rings rings was found.   Christine was standing right beside me and could not believe I found it.  Now the only ring missing was the most expensive, the diamond solitaire with several small diamonds around the band.   After determining that nothing else was in the 4-5 bags of leaves, I walked back to the rear of the property and told Ellen that I had found one but that one was still missing.  She had been working out visual grid and I went back and started back over the grid working the opposite direction.   I made several passes checking every 2inch or less hit that I got regardless of the type of signal.  Then I got a shaky 44-46 hit that was very weak,  as I was checking everything I almost kept going but thank goodness I did not.  I reached down and moved the leaves and grass and there it was, the diamond solitaire twinkled at me.  I reached down and picked it up and ask Christine, “Would this make you Happy!”  She and her husband were so excited and grateful.  It is so much fun to see the reaction of our customers when we are successful.

So 3 rings, 1 in the leaf pile, 1 in a trash bag a 1/2 acre away and one in the grass 5-6 feet away from the 1st one.

Another successful hunt for “The Ring Finders”.
