Finding Lost Texas A&M Class Rings in College Station, Texas
Texas A&M Class Ring Lost in Creek during classroom exercise in College Station,Texas (found) by John Volek

I was contacted by Ryan from College Station, Texas regarding his lost Texas A&M Class ring…Ryan stated while out on a fishery conservation class he had the misfortune of loosing his class ring. Ryan said, he and classmates were capturing some fish in the creek as part of the classroom assignment, and during that process he lost in ring somewhere in the creek.

Ryan indicate he believed the water depths of the creek ranged from a few feet to possibly eight foot deep in the center of the creek. I made arrangements with Ryan to meet him the following week to search for his lost ring.

Knowing the depths and terrain, I felt pretty confident the ring could be recovered with the right personnel, gear and equipment…I contacted my dive partner Carl…we looked over the details of the recovery and set out the following week to recovery Ryan’s ring.

Once on site, Carl drew the short straw and had to gear up for the underwater side of this search…I would be taking the shallower waters around the deeper portion of the creek.

Once Carl was set-up and underway, I began searching the edges of the creek…I pulled up a few possible signals (fishing lures, and a few bottle caps) before hitting a very distinct signal in about 4 1/2 foot of water…I pulled up a scoop full of rocks and other debris, along with a nice Gold Texas A&M Class ring.

I feel pretty confident Ryan and his father were shocked on how fast we were able to recover the ring!

Check out the video to see the search conditions, no clear blue water here!

Metal Detecting Punta Cana Dominican Republic

One of our sponsor at “The Ring Finders” is Anderson Detector Shafts (www.andersondetectorshafts.com) a provider of great metal detecting equipment.

A few months back they sent me a “Test and Evaluation Unit” a travel shaft for the Minelab Excalibur II. I have just recently had the opportunity to use the shaft for one of its intended purposes (traveling). I made a trip over to the Dominican Republic this month for a little R and R and decided to pack up the Excalibur and the new Anderson travel shaft.

As you can see from the photo the Excalibur and the travel shaft packed up nicely into the bottom of a medium sized suit case, I used one of the more modern style suit cases with the hard exterior shell to ensure some protection for the equipment.

The Excalibur and travel shaft made the trip there and back buried in the suit case with no problems. I spent a few hours playing around on the beach in Punta Cana which was surprising clean with very few targets.  I had a small following of locals who seemed truly fascinated by my ability to pull money out of the earth LOL. I would often with out really looking at what I found throw it to the onlookers. It must have always been something good, because big smiles often followed after they examined their treasure.

With that said, the above pictured Minelab Excalibur Travel Shaft is looking a for a new home within “The Ring Finders”

Send me an email if you can put this detector shaft to work, and I will do a lottery drawing of those who respond and ship you a slightly used

Lost 1958 Texas A&M Class Ring Seabrook, Texas (Recovered)

Lost 1958 Texas A&M Class Ring  Seabrook, Texas (Recovered)

Received the following email from Devin on 04/30/2014

I just threw my ring in the water on accident.  I know exactly where it dropped but it’s 5 ft down and I have no way of getting it.  This was my grandfathers ring from 1958.  Let me know ASAP

Follow-up information from Devin

Location: Outriggers Restaurant in Seabrook Texas

About 17 ft deep.  Sticky bottom, couple of inches of mud but very dense mud.  Ring shouldn’t of sunk in mud immediately.  Lots of current and boat traffic.  Sooner the better

There is a lot of boat traffic there because of the launch, this may be a safety barrier, thoughts?

Devin sent the following photos of the dock at the Outriggers Restaurant.

I had to postpone Devin’s search until today, I just couldn’t get away any sooner for this type of job.  Devin was concerned about the delay, and I think he felt it might affect the possibilities of recovering his ring. I was very confident the ring was not going anywhere, I just needed Devin to be sure he knew the right location.

Devin and I met at the Outriggers Restaurant this morning and we discussed how the ring was lost. Devin explained he had been on the upper deck of the restaurant when he tossed some ice over the railing, He said his grandfathers ring flew right off his finger, landed and skidded across the lower floating dock and then dropped off  into the abyss.

Devin said the ring was his grandfathers Texas A&M Class Ring from 1958.

Devin and I transferred all the gear out to the dock, and then discussed how the dive would go,  and what his responsibilities would be topside.

Nearly zero visibility, water temp somewhere around 70, light boat traffic, and tons and tons of debris (spikes, bolts, nails, fishing hooks, and yes plenty of beer tops) on the bottom.

Had built a spot marker dive pole for this job, and Devin held it in position topside as a I worked a three-foot radius around it on the bottom. Had to work it inch by inch, I used a hand held Vibra-Tector 730, their was simply to much debris to try and manage the Excalibur.

About 20 minutes in, and after crawling around on the bottom with the VibraTector 730, and weeding through handful after handful of junk, I got a hold of something from 1958.

The pictures tell the rest of the story.
