… We had snow in the mountains of Southern California. When that happens many who reside in the city make a run to the nearby mountains. The first day of the snow, Linda was able to take her kids to Mt.Baldy which is an easy drive. After taking photos of her girls she put her iPhone 13 in her jacket pocket. Later that afternoon while it was snowing heavily, she realized the phone was missing.

She was sure the phone was in the soft powered snow but the area was probably 50’x50’ area. It was snow hard on that Thursday afternoon so they had to get down the mountain before the snow was too hazardous to drive. Linda and her friend returned Saturday with shovels and couldn’t find the iPhone. Celphone service is non existent at that 6000ft. elevation, making it impossible to use the find my iPhone app. They were again unsuccessful at finding the lost phone.

Linda called me Saturday night asking for help. We agreed that Sunday would be crazy busy with cars and people in the area of the loss. We had set up Monday morning to meet in the spot where the loss occurred. We carefully coordinated the time and place to meet because there is zero celphone reception there. 

I arrived 20 minutes before Linda and her friend, Arizona arrived. The snow had melted and frozen over the last two days. It was about 2 ft. deep and the top 12 “ was solid like an iceberg. Not very encouraging for easy digging. As it turned out Linda’s friend had purchased a inexpensive metal detector at a Walmart. He had no idea how to use it. I took a couple minutes to show him how to set it up. Then we both took a section of the area to scan. Shortly after we started he called me over because he had a signal. I put my detector over the spot and immediately knew the size and ID numbers match what had to be a celphone. 

He wanted to chip away with a shovel on the hard packed frozen snow. I would not let him. I used a small pick-like tool to patiently scratch the surface till we could remove the phone. (10 plus minutes) We didn’t need to do all this work of two days of searching to damage the phone by carelessly digging. Long story, but there were several unexpected twists that I had to share.. I live at the beach, I know hardly anything about retrieving items lost in the snow. That doesn’t mean we can’t find them, first thing to remember is you can’t find a lost item if you don’t try.

It was a pleasure to meet Linda and her friend Arizona, I am happy to be able to do these searches. Linda was also happy that she found me through TheRingFinders directory of independent metal detectorists.

*** I was detecting on a local Newport California beach the other day . A couple of girls ran up to me asking for help to find a special necklace that was lost in the sand. They said the necklace had been on a towel and one of the girls picked the towel, not knowing the keepsake was there. It disappeared into the dry soft sand.

We walked over to the location where I was able to locate the chain and pendant within a couple minutes with my metal detector.

*** Karisa called me after locating my contact information on The RingFinders directory. She said her mother’s gold chain and pendant was lost in the sand at Newport Beach, CA. I was just finishing another search at Huntington Beach, CA., five miles from where Karisa thought her mother’s chain could be. My concern was the incident happened four days ago on the towel line.

I explained to Karisa that four days on this area of the beach may be too late. There is the Beach King sand sifting machine and a chain might have been picked up by another person on the beach. The location she gave me verbally over the phone was easy to find. I stopped by on the way home, walked out on the beach and began a grid search. Four 30ft grid lines was all it took to find this gold necklace that Karisa’s mother had been given 20 years ago while in Egypt.

Sometimes I think I know my local beaches. I would have never bet that this gold chain would still be here after all this time. I called her with the good news. She was very happy and grateful as she knew how much this Neckless meant to her mother. The only thing she didn’t know was how lucky we were that the necklace was not cleaned up in the beach sifter or found by a random beach comber. This is why I always try to search these seemingly impossible type searches.

Jackie contacted me to come out to the beach and help find her husband Jose’s white gold wedding band. Jose had placed his ring on a beach towel and not knowing Jackie picked up the towel and the ring went flying into the sand.

This was a very quick hunt since they knew the general area of the lost ring. After digging a couple of targets, I had his ring in my scoop.

Jackie and Jose were super happy with the ring finders service.

Brennon called me and asked if I could help find his wife Casssie’s wedding band. Cassie took off her engagement ring and wedding band and placed them on her sweater when she went into the water at the beach.

It wasn’t until they got home she realized she lost her rings. They headed back to the beach and with the help of others they found the engagement ring but couldn’t find the wedding band.

When I arrived it only took me a few minutes and I found Cassies ring. They were very thankful for the ring finder service.

Ring lost while picking Oranges

Kamal was standing on a block wall picking Oranges high up on his tree when he noticed his wedding ring was gone. He had put his ring on his pinky finger because it was to tight on his ring finger.

He had assumed his ring fell in the neighbors garden which was covered in decorative bark but could not find it. Kamal went and bought a metal detector to search the garden and still had no luck.

Kamal reached out to me and I was happy to assist him in finding his ring. I brought a detector with a small coil so I could search the garden in tight places. When I couldn’t locate the ring I moved my search to the bushes and eventually the orange tree.

I was holding my detector high over my head scanning the orange tree when I got a nice signal. Kamal got a ladder and sure enough his ring got stuck on a twig on one of the branches.

Carly texted me and asked if I could help her find her key fob and Ford Bronco key. Her Sister borrowed her vehicle to go to the beach the night before and unfortunately dropped her keys in the sand, Carly was not to happy with her Sister.

I met Carly and her Dad at the beach shortly after she texted me and started my hunt based on a video her Sister took while at the beach, it was key to getting me in the right place.

They had to leave to run an errand while I continued to grid the area, I found another set of keys with a key fob that were partly rusted while looking for hers. After about 12 passes I was able to find her lost key and key fob.

 

Class ring lost for over 40 years returned to family

  • from Virginia Beach (Virginia, United States)

I was called by a member of the family that knew a couple gold rings had been lost over a span of 50 years. The house had been sold and the family wanted to try and locate the rings before the house closed. They contacted theringfinders.com and 2 of us went out to try and find the rings. The landscape did not look promising with decks and pavers being added in a large area of the backyard. On about my fourth hit I struck paydirt. Out of the ground pops a 1970 class ring! I was glad to be able to return it to the family. You can see the recovery here
