Mr. Lee and his family decided to go swimming at Wasaga Beach #1 on his 25th wedding anniversary!
The waters were getting rough mid-afternoon. He felt his ring pop off his finger and he tried to find it!
I received a call shortly after and headed up after work meeting Mr Lee and his Family! I started my grid search pattern with Mr. Lee in the water beside me and had no luck. The waters were calming down but there was still a little bit of an undertow. I had no luck after searching for 4 to 5 hours and decided to go back early Saturday morning! I continued again starting to grid search To the East of the previous days attempt!
Once I got back to the area where Mr. Lee felt his ring come off, I decided because of the undertow to search 10 to 50 feet behind where the area.
i had a solid crisp signal on the Equinox 800 with an “11” VDI reading! There was Mr’ Lee’s wedding band in my scoop!!!

Here comes my favorite part!!! “THE SURPRISE”

🌸💖🌸 Thank you Mr and Mrs Lee! Happy 25th Anniversary 🌸💖🌸
A western Canada Alberta man named Milton was visiting Wasaga Beach 6, Ontario a few months ago. He was 100-150 yards off shore throwing around a football when his silver coloured tungsten ring slipped off into the water!
I saw a Facebook post on the local Wasaga Beach page and messaged Milton. I advised I was a professional detectorist with The Ring Finders Dot Com and explained what we did and that we were part of a global organization in helping people find their lost belongings. He hired me and I headed out a few days later.
Day 1 was quite rough. 7 hours in the water gridding from shore out to 200’. I ALWAYS go further and wider from where they ‘think’ they’ve lost their ring…especially if a throwing motion was a factor! I had no luck!
Day 2 I decided to try again but go further out…and BINGO, I FOUND IT!!! I came back into shore and face timed Milton through Facebook. Happy Husband & his Happy Wife!!
Check out the video!!
The next day I mailed Milton’s silver coloured tungsten wedding band back to Alberta. He graciously made a donation for my “pay-it-forward campaign” with an on-line donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation. The Foundation then sends a tax receipt! Everyone wins!!
Thank you Milton for entrusting me to recover and return your wedding band!!
Adam & Lindsay from Kingston, ON we’re visiting Wasaga Beach 3 with Family members! The guys were playing with a bounce ball in the water when Adam felt and saw his wedding band fall off his finger into the water. The three guys all started looking to try to see the ring but had no luck.
Lindsay was checking beach goers to see if anyone had swim googles to loan to assist looking for the ring underwater.
Ann Maria and Kaitlin visiting the beach from Collingwood had suggested calling THE RING FINDERS Alison as they had recently saw a post of another ring recovery & return the previous day!
I had been dealing with a blown serpentine belt on my diesel truck and advised I could attend the location in an hours time to assist.
Arrived and discussed the details of how Adam had lost his wedding ring. Decided to complete a circular grid at first but after 6 passes changed to a back and forth grid. After 45 minutes, I had a beauty of a tone.
I had winked to my Friends Heather & Greg (Greg fixed my truck hours before) to restart the video…then the surprise!!
Check out the video!!
Adam was in disbelief!! I could see that he was giving up….but I never give up!
I wish this lovely young couple the very best for the arrival of their first born child in October!! Also, I I am grateful to have another donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation for my PAY-IT-FORWARD fundraising efforts!! Using my passion for metal detecting for charity!!
