Ring Returned on Harwich Cape Cod, MA Beach

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

A year had passed since wedding vows were exchanged on a small footbridge and today another emotional moment took place just over the same footbridge, a cherished wedding band was “lost” in the sand. A very stressful hour passed with many hands helping in the search the sand for the ring. A few calls had been made one to the police, one to the beach superintendent two to my wife, Jane, who finally got in touch with me. I had been out detecting and was on my way home. That segment of the trip would have to wait, I was now on my way south, not west to my home. At this point I was unsure just which beach I needed to end up at. Jane relayed messages between Catherine the beach’s gate attendant, Sarah, and me. I arrived at the beach with a big sign telling me were to find Sarah, thanks to Catherine’s foresight as the beach was about to close for the evening.

Sarah had removed her rings to apply sunscreen lotion, putting the rings safely in her pants pocket. Lotion applied, it was the removal and folding of her pants when her engagement ring fell from the pocket into a beach bag, The wedding band did not follow the engagement ring, but rather fell on the sand and disappeared from sight. As it usually happens, many of the beachgoers helped search the sandy area to no avail. The ring would not see the fading sunlight until my third signal when I recovered it. I left the ring in my scoop so Sarah could remove the ring and place it back on her finger.

Several hugs, congratulations, cheers from near-by beach goers filled everyone’s face with a smile. Catherine even showed up as the many Thank Yous continued and the usual picture taking and answering of questions followed. It was time to leave the beach and as we did a nice chat was had between three of us, Sarah, Josh her husband, and myself. It was difficult for me to tell just who had the biggest smile. It really did not matter, the “lost ring” had been found and returned. A beautiful ending to a beautiful day on Cape Cod.

Lost Cell Phone Returned to Owner at Bayview Beach, Dennis, MA

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

August 20, 2022
I was called to find a bracelet but as I was searching, I was asked “Had I found the phone? What? No, I was looking for a bracelet. I saw disappointment in the inquisitive face. I could not let it go, I said where was it lost and was it waterproof? Here and yes, it was waterproof. OK, I will search for both.

After about two hours of searching and finding only two beer bottle twist off caps and two pull tabs I was beginning to think there may be something wrong with my detector. No, it was just that the beach was heavily detected, and all good targets had been removed. Then my ears began to ring with a sound like I had just swung the detector’s coil over a large beer can. But I had to scoop carefully just in case it was a precious object. Yes, it was the yellow phone. Mike came over to me and in disbelief said: “It is still working!”

A couple of quick Thank Yous and he was off toward the shoreline. I continued to search for the Bracelet. A few minutes later Mike and his niece Pina came back into the water and thanked me again.
I had no means of taking any information so I asked if they would please text me with the information I needed for this blog. It is so wonderful that I get to see many smiling faces and hear cheers form the beach goers when I get to return a precious item and in this case an item filled with many photo memories, ones that could not be replaced.

Unfortunately, I have not yet found the bracelet that I had initially been called to help find. I had stayed well after dark on Saturday and returned Sunday morning for another two-hour search. I will return mid-week and expand the area of search. It is not time to give up hope, there are other detectorists I will keep in touch with as one might just find the bracelet before I do. Until then I will keep Pina’s smile in my phone and perhaps it will bring a bit of good luck for me to locate the bracelet.

Mike: thanks for not giving up on your family’s and your searching efforts. Had you left without giving me your contact information, I may not have been able to unlock the phone and retrieve information that would have led to Pina. And I would not have a wonderful smile to remind me of her hope to have her phone returned.

Lost Ring: Lighthouse Beach in Chatham – Cape Cod, MA Found and returned!

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

August 9, 2022
Seals, sharks and sand were all in their place, but Connor’s new wedding band was not. It had slipped from his ring finger as he rinsed off his hands in the waters of Lighthouse Beach. He and his wife reached out to Luke, another RingFinder, for help in recovering his ring. Luke was unable to leave work, so he called me to help in finding Connor’s ring. I made arrangements with Connor to meet up just before low tide to search for the ring. I had planned to detect a few freshwater beaches as many of the local saltwater beaches were closed to swimming due to the presence of Portuguese Man of War jellyfish. Leighton, who is also a RingFinder, would also join in on the search. It is great working as a team, it also helps in the probability of finding the lost treasure.

The four of us met up for the walk to the area where Connor had spent many previous visits over the past several years. Christina was to stand at the edge of the water where Connor had rinsed his hands. Connor stood high on the sand where he had had been sitting. The area between the newlyweds set up an area for the search as the exact moment of loss was not known. Leighton and I now started the search. First the sand and slope would be searched. Then the water would be last as sharks were known to prowl the area. That is why we saved it for last and would be very aware of anything lurking in the water.

Gridding the dry and wet sand only had one hidden pull tab that was found. We headed onto the steep slope and into the water where the sharks have been seen and the ring was most likely waiting to be found. My first target was the head of a metal fishing lure, all that had not rusted away. The second was the ring. It was looking very shiny and in perfect condition. I left it in the scoop and headed up the beach’s slope to the area Connor and his wife were standing. What a joyful reunion it was seeing the ring replaced onto Connor’s ring finger.

It was now time for the half mile walk back to the parking lot. After the exchange of a few more Thank Yous, other information and picture taking before it was off to dinner and another night of celebration for Connor and Christina. The honeymoon was back on.

  • from Bloomer (Wisconsin, United States)

Got a call from Nate saying he lost his Gold Wedding Band while on vacation in the water at lake Lac Courte Oreilles and He told me how he lost and and how everything happened. He was good about drawing me a map of the layout of everything and the area and I told him I would go find it for him and thanked him for calling me to help. I drove up to where he was at on vacation in Stone Lake and started the search in the water, within 20 minutes I had a hit on my AT MAX and made a couple scoops and finally there it was! The best feeling in the world was finding his lost ring that he probably thought was gone forever.

Lost Ring in Newport Beach Found

Call Surf City Ring Finder 714-944-0555

Loren texted me and asked if it was possible to find his special ring he lost one week ago in Newport Beach. He had this silver ring made while he was in Spain, it has a depiction of his dog Otis on the face of the ring. Loren set his ring on top of a cooler for safe keeping but it fell into the sand during the day.

I told him I would try to find it, with the help of some photos of the area he provided it got me in the general area. The ring was a little out of my first search area but I found it after gridding for 45 minutes.

I was told in Chinese culture a lost wedding ring before the person gets married is bad luck, but not if it’s found! I was called out by a couple who lost a ring the night before, I met with them at the beach and they show me the approximate location it was lost. After asking my typical questions I began my search and within 10 minutes found a beautiful golden diamond ring. If in their culture a lost ring is bad luck then a found ring must be good luck… I was so happy to be able to find her ring for them and see the smiles on their face even though his wife was wearing a mask I could tell there was a big smile underneath that mask.

On a sidenote just minutes after I found a ring a metal detectors came walking on the beach in the same direction where I found the ring. Timing in life is everything, I’m so happy the timing worked out today!

Found it! I received a call earlier tonight just as a thunderstorm was moving in from a woman on the beach in Atlantic City who was looking for help finding her husband’s white gold wedding band in the sand. Being an hour away and the thunderstorm bearing down on my area and headed towards the coast along with the darkness of night I didn’t have much time to make this one happen.Arriving on the beach and meeting Keisha she had an area marked out where they were during the day. I began my grid search and on the third pass and forth target I got a solid 55 on my new Deus 2 metal detector and scooped the sand and discovered his ring in the scoop! She was amazed at how fast I had found it and just in time as the rain was starting to come down.

How to find a lost ring with a metal detector…

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Yesterday late afternoon I received a call for help from a young man who had lost his wedding band at Spanish Banks Beach in Vancouver. He sounded very upset and really really wanted me to get out there as soon as possible to help find it. I understand what these items mean to people so I jumped in my car rescheduled another search and headed to Spanish Banks.

After asking all my typical questions it sounded like it could be a relatively quick search, I’ve been fooled many times by thinking that. When I arrived I met Chris who showed me a very small area where he believe the ring had fallen, a gathering up my gear and within a minute found his beautiful ring.

It’s amazing how fast the sand can eat up a persons ring and make it near impossible to find a good medley text her and someone who knows how to use it.

This definitely made up for the last three outings where I spent over 14 hours looking for a platinum ring at Kits Beach with no luck. Unfortunately it was lost in the soft sand, but I gave it a good effort.

 

 

 

 

I was so relieved for this young man to see the ring in my scoop so quickly, sometimes it happens like that and I will take it when I get it. It was great to meet Chris and his wonderful family and to see that smile back where it belongs.
