“I lost my wedding ring!” Gold and diamond ring found and returned to happy couple in Erie Colorado

  • from Longmont (Colorado, United States)

Is there anything worse than having car trouble on the side of the road? Unfortunately, Daniel and Lidia found out that yes, there can be something worse.  About five days ago Daniel had some car trouble on the side of a lonely road in Erie, Colorado and brought his wife out to assist him in getting his vehicle back on the road.  While Daniel was working under the hood, Lidia was standing on the soft shoulder between the road and a local farm field and as the time lingered on, she felt in horror as her beloved wedding ring slipped off of her finger and fell to the ground.  She and Daniel looked and looked and even dug into the ground as they felt it had slipped into a crack of the dry, parched earth but without any success in retrieving it.  They stuck a screwdriver into the ground where they felt it had fallen to mark the location and made a couple more trips out there to try and find it with no luck…

Lidia searched the internet and found her way to TheRingFinders website and after a quick search in Colorado was able to locate me as a Ring Finder in her area.  She contacted me via text and we made plans to meet out at the site where the ring was lost.  I was very optimistic that we would find the wedding ring because they had done such a good job noting the area and pinpointing the exact spot the ring was dropped.  Daniel and Lidia met me at a parking lot across the road and we talked about the story again of how they lost the wedding ring.  I could tell that they were very anxious to see if we could find this symbol of their love and marriage.  We drove over to the site and parked on the side of the road ahead of the place where they thought they had lost it.  I jumped out with my Teknetics T2 metal detector and Garrett Carrot pinpointer and started to grid off the area.  I noticed there was tons of trash in the area and being right next to the road, it was expected.  I decided to pick out the strong shallow targets first then if I hadn’t found it, I would transition to deeper targets.  Daniel and Lidia thought that it had possibly fell into a crack in the dirt and fell deeper as they tried to dig for it.  I was there for about 15 minutes and there were no strong signals in the ‘dig’ area where they had searched themselves but there was one scratchy signal that showed to be about 3-4 inches down.  I decided to dig that target.  With Daniel looking over my shoulder and after removing about 3 inches of dirt, he yelled, “there it is” and pointed to the shiny color streaming out of the brown dirt.

I had found the wedding ring!  I removed it from the dirt and showed it to Lidia who was waiting in their truck.  The smiles were wide on all our faces as she approached us exclaiming she couldn’t believe we had found it.  It is always an amazing feeling when you can return a lost item to its owner after they had given up hope that they would ever see it again.  It was my honor to help them out and I hope to be able to put smiles on many more faces to come.

Metal detector can find a Micro SD Card!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Last week I received a call from a young man asking if I could help him find a micro SD card that he lost at a a rock quarry in town called Hope. I knew this would be a tough search as there wasn’t much metal on a micro SD card. I did ask a friend of mine to test with his machines because he had a micro SD card and he reported back that it was detectible.

I contacted the young man and said yes I could help but before we go up to Hope (2 hour drive + 30 minutes up a bumpy road to the location. I would want to meet up just to make sure and test with my equipment. Saturday we met at 8 AM I tested both Metal Detectors the AT Gold with a sniper coil and the Equinox 800 in gold mode. Both machines were able to detect the small micro SD card along with both Garrett pin pointers. So off we went to Hope to search for this SD card with all his videos of the party he was at and the camping trip with his friends he hadn’t see in quite some time.

According to the weather report we were supposed to get rained on and we were prepared but fortunately did not have to worry about that, Daniel show me the area where he believed he had lost it at. Unfortunately there’s a lot of trash, spent rifle shells, nails ,wire, your typical garbage. I use my AT Gold and spent close to an hour and a half clearing out the area then I pulled out the equinox 800 and within minutes I found his SD card.

Daniel was so happy to get it back in his possession,   I was happy to be able to help him find it,  much like the rings I find, this too has stories attached to it and a lot of videos that you could never get back. It was a lot of fun beautiful drive and I love my office and thank you so much for the very kind and generous reward Daniel!

Lost Ring Whistler BC…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Vancouver Ring Finder Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

I got a phone call from a young man who told me he lost his wedding band in a lake at Whistler, he told me he was swiping at a mosquito and his ring flew into the bushes. It had been about a couple of weeks and he found me online and asked if I was willing to come up and find his ring.

Of course I was up for the challenge, it was about a 2 Hour Dr. each way and part of the drive I had to jump in his vehicle because the road was so bad going into the lake that it had to be a special vehicle with enough clearance to make the big dips and  bumps.

After arriving to this beautiful lake, Sunny showed me the direction that his ring had flown. I thought for sure this could take at least two hours, it was a very difficult search due to all the overgrowth, trees, branches and big rocks, I thought for sure I was in for a long search.

It was only a matter of minutes with a lot of luck that I found his ring, sometimes the ring gods are with us, today they were! I was so happy to get this ring back to Sunny and see his smile!

We go the extra mile to find your Smile!

This young man lost a very special silver pendant at Jericho Beach, three days later he reaches out for help. We made arrangements to meet at the beach unfortunately it would have to be after I finished work, so we set up a time for 1:30 AM to search for the silver pendant.

After meeting Vinny and his sister and her boyfriend in the early hours of the morning we walked along the beach to the area where he lost his pendant. After removing a lot of trash in the area I begin my search for almost two hours, after cleaning out all the target signals except for one big iron target, I decided to move all the sand away from the Iron and that was a good thing as Murphy’s Law would have it… I found his pendant which was right on top of the iron target.

Close to 3:30 AM I was able to surprise Vinny with his cherished silver pendant…

WEDDING BAND LOST IN MURKY WATERS OF BACKYARD POND in PEFFERLAW, ONT 🇨🇦

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

I had a referral from another RING FINDER Anne for a lost wedding band in a pond in Pefferlaw, Ontario. Soon after, I received a call from Ron the ring owner!

I made arrangement to attend early Saturday morning. I brought along my trusty Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector and my newly acquired DIVE BLU3 NEMO hookah system purchased last fall.

The search area was roughly 6’ to 10’ wide by zero to 20’ out from the dock. When Ron stated it was mucky, squishy bottom and black with zero viz… he WASN’T KIDDING!!

Check the video our of the recovery of this beautiful rose gold wedding band;

Ron being a former diver knew those conditions aren’t favorable nor wanted for anyone in the water! It’s very easy to lose ones bearings as you could see. I had to pop up a number of times to ensure I was heading back to the dock area.

I was thinking after my first down and back attempt, I would then switch to a Lazy “D” style grid pattern (1/2 moon) back and forth from dock outward!

Lucky on the way back to the dock and right under the dock ladder I heard the sweet gold tone on the Excalibur2!! I popped out with the wedding band much to the surprise and delight of Ron and Christopher!!

It was a pleasure to meet both these guys and a big thank you for the generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation in which they received a tax receipt!! PAYING-IT-FORWARD!!

  

Lost ring in Acton Maine found

  • from Boston (Massachusetts, United States)

I quickly responded to a text from Liane  who found my name in the ring finders directory. Liane and her husband were splashing around in waist deep water when they realized his platinum ring was missing. I showed up a few hours later and we took a boat ride to the sand bar where the ring went missing. I set out some florescent markers and started my grid search and after a couple hours I got that solid 15 signal and pulled up the missing ring. A gorgeous day to be in the water

14k ROSE GOLD WEDDING BAND LOST IN ROADSIDE DITCH In SUNDRIGE, ONTARIO

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Nolan was working in Sunridge, Ontario staking out a utility vault in a ditch at the side of a roadway. He was brushing away his pants with wet hands when he noticed out of the corner of his eye his wedding band fly off.

Nolan’s 14 karat wedding band was custom designed by his Wife with a centre ruby in between two amethyst gemstones to match her engagement ring.

We agreed to meet this weekend very early morning as the Ontario Highway 400 northbound cottage traffic can be crazy.

With a strict grid search using my Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector and small stock coil I was able to locate Nolan’s wedding band in 2 1/2 minutes!

Check out the video;

A very happy young couple and another donation grateful received came into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! Nolan received a tax receipt for his donation amount! #payingitforward!

Sentimental Ear Ring Lost At Atlantic Beach Found Two Days Later

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Atlantic Beach, NC

I was practicing my detector skills and settings at “The Circle”.  As I pulled another bottlecap from it’s sandy depths (glass bottles are prohibited here), a couple asked if I had found an ear ring.  Kate informed me she had lost the ear ring in the same general area 2 days prior.  My recovery mode went into action as I started to grid the area.  To her surprise and after a few more pieces of junk metal, I received a solid 1 signal on my Minelab Equinox 800.  It took 1 scoop to unbury her missing ear ring.

Kate was thrilled I found it and explained although it didn’t have monetary value, her Aunt had made the ear rings for her and the sentimental value connection made her very happy to have the set back in her possession.

CELL PHONE LOST IN GIBSON LAKE, PORT SEVERN, MUSKOKA LAKE, ONTARIO

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Megan was sitting out on a dock with a pile of Friends when someone fell into the lake. She jumped up to help and her cell phone fell into the waters dockside in Gibson Lake, Port Severn in beautiful cottage country of the Muskoka Lakes region in Ontario!

I headed up after work with my underwater metal detector and decided to use my new DIVE BLU3 NEMO hookah system with the 10’ hose instead of all my scuba gear! The Blu3 Nemo hookah system is around 15lbs and is perfect for any recoveries 10’ or less!! Beats dragging all the gear and heavy scuba tank(s)!! I love this little unit!

During my underwater grid search I had a visit from Mister Bass. I pulled up some cans, bungee cords, a hot wheels car and finally managed to find Megan’s cell phone in 10-15 minutes! Hopefully the bag of rice I supplied will help save her phone/photos from damage being in the water for a few days already!

Here is the video;

I have a call out fee. When I recover the lost item, I don’t take a reward! Instead, I request the client to ‘pay-it-forward’ with an immediate online donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! The client then receives a tax receipt for the amount donated!! This is my 13th year snowmobiling for the Kelly Shires!

Thank you Megan for calling upon me to help!
