Wedding Ring Found in Lake Mille Lacs in Wahkon Minnesota

  • from Chisago City (Minnesota, United States)

I received a call looking for someone that could come up and locate a missing ring believed to be in a lake in about 3-4 feet of water.  The individual I was talking to was the former Chief of Police of a near by city before moving up to Northern Minnesota.  We planned on a time on a Saturday for me to come up and give it a good search.

Upon reaching the beautiful home on Lake Mille Lacs, I was greeted by the homeowner waiting for me out in his driveway. It was a beautiful sunny day with few clouds. I’m guessing it was about 85 degrees, with a slight wind. Another perfect day for ring recovery work. The homeowner Mike had a John Deere Gaiter waiting for me to toss all of my stuff into and took me down to the lake.  He explained that he was out moving a couple of bricks around  15’ or so from the end of the dock. Later that evening he and his wife noticed his ring was missing.  So putting everything together – figured it was out in the lake where he was working.  It had been a couple of days since it was lost and he had some fiberglass stakes marking the lake in the area where he had been.

So I dawned my gear and headed out first doing a Primary Search followed up with a secondary more methodical search.  I was finding a bunch of old tops to old beer cans form years gone by. The ones that used the old bottle opener with the pointed end to open the beer cans. The signal that these can tops would make was very similar signal to that of rings. The biggest difference was that they were coming in a little deeper than what I was looking for giving me a little ability to rule out some without digging them. But this is always a little dangerous because you could rule out something that you should not have.

I don’t recall but I remember the sun beating down on the back of my neck and my arm getting a little tire because swinging the metal detector in water takes a little more effort than air swinging.  I must have been out looking for 5-6 hours and came up empty at the end of the day.

I decided to head out and come back in the morning and give the yard and other possible locations a search. These locations seemed much less likely from what we were thinking, but because we were unsuccessful in the water, we had to expand the search area.  Mike had a well-manicured lawn with a very thick root system. This would make it very hard for a ring to get pushed down very far. My concern was that he had mowed the lawn a coupe of times and if the mower had hit it just right it could have launched it to places unknown. So we were hoping that it was run over by a wheel pushing it down into the lawn. After a search of the yard, shrubs, around the garage, and driveway – Nothing. So it was back to the water again.

By the end of the day we had accumulated a box full of parts to metal beer cans and no ring.  It was so frustrating to come up empty for a second day. You could tell that this was also hard on Mike and his wife, they had been married for 40+ years and the ring was with them for all of it. I told them that when they pulled the dock out for winter I would come back up again and give it another search without the dock and boat lift in the way.

So when that time came, I was excited to go back up and give it another try. I had one location that I had a question in the back of my head that I may have had good signal and really wanted to clear one more time. This is wader time with water temperatures running around 50 degrees. The water was glass calm, clear, and down about a foot from the level earlier in the season. I went in and had in my mind clearing that location that I had suspected as being one location I needed to clear. So I went out working the location of the dock working the area slow and methodical. When I made it out towards the location, I was getting close to I got a hit. A little deeper than what I would have liked but a good signal. I dug down and pulled up my scoop and looked inside and there it was another beer can top that I missed on the earlier searches. I kept going and I got another hit in the area that I was looking to clear. It was 3 pieces of metal all right next to one another. 2 were deeper around 4 inches and one was shallower about 2 inches but being masked by the other deeper metal targets.  The metal detector was having a hard time picking up the smaller target. Again I scooped it and missing it, but moved it. Rechecked the location and scooped again and had whatever it was. A look inside the scoop and their it was. The ring I had been searching for was in the bottom of my scoop. Mike was at his normal perch overlooking the lake, how do you let him know?  I flipped him a thumbs up, but just walked back in to him and showed him the scoop.  I had some rocks also in the bottom of the scoop that blocked his view. I shook it a little and he caught a glimpse of it… You found it… My ring.. I can’t believe you found it. It wasn’t long and we were heading back to the house to share the good news. Smiles all around. Pictures, text messages and emails to family members that the ring was recovered. It was great to be a part of the recovery.

  

Wedding Ring Found Along Road

  • from Reading (Pennsylvania, United States)

I received a text from Danielle saying she lost her wedding and engagement rings along a busy road near Scranton PA. She told me the rings could possibly be in very thick brush and high grass along the roads guardrail. I began searching which was made difficult because of the thick brush and lots of aluminum cans and trash along the road. After about 45min of searching, I decided to walk along the road to see if the rings could be on the roadway. I found the engagement ring along the curb which had obvious damage from getting run over by cars. I continued to search for the wedding band but could not find it. Danielle was beyond thrilled that I found the most valuable ring because of the diamonds. Her plans are to contact a jeweler to see if they can fix the ring or reset the diamonds in a new band. No matter where you may have lost jewelry, don’t hesitate to call me.

Ring Lost On Popular Beach Location Found One Month Later By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Bogue Inlet Pier – Emerald Isle, NC

Lauren visited Bogue Inlet Pier on September 7th with her son as was wading in the surf when a larger wave knocked her over.  She told me her hands went into the sand and she felt her chocolate diamond ring slide off of her finger.  She was very upset but noticed a man out with his detector and went to him for help.  Bogue Inlet Pier (BIP) gets a lot of beach traffic and also many detectorist come there to search for “treasures”.   After being unable to find her ring, the gentleman suggested she contact Crystal Coast Ring Finders.  I made plans to hunt the very next low tide early in the morning and only a few hours after the loss of the ring.  The surf was still very strong and I too was unsuccessful.  Lauren was very upset when I talked with her and I felt terrible I could not make the recovery that morning.  I live near BIP and each time I went there to hunt the beach, I made it a point to search the area of Lauren’s lost ring.  Recently, we had some sand movement that allowed the replenished beach sand to move.  This created a low spot near the water’s edge.  To my surprise, after so many days lost and I’m sure, many other metal detectors hunting the same area, her ring was rescued on the evening of October 7th.  It was about 50 yards further West on the beach.  I had not met Lauren yet and messaged her to tell her I needed her to fill out my standard search contract.  We agreed to meet at her father’s business.  After we met and she completed the search contract without knowing I had her lost ring,.. I gave her one of my business cards.  When she turned the card over, her lost ring was taped to the back of the card.  She burst into tears.  I was very happy that something very good happened to Lauren this year as she explained it hadn’t been going well.

Diamond Platinum Ring Lost On Beach Found By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Emerald Isle, NC

JoEllen was spending time with her parents sitting on the Emerald Isle beach along the shoreline.  They were sitting down by the water so they could put their feet in the waves.  She had explained to me she had taken off her very special ring and placed it in her glasses case prior to going to the beach.  While on the beach, she decided to put on her glasses and forgot the ring was also in the case.  It wasn’t until the next morning she had realized the ring was missing and she called Crystal Coast Ring Finders.  The beach sand was very soft and very little items were found during the search.  Her ring was eventually found under about 12 inches of sand.  This was a very challenging search but when you can successfully return an important item to the owner, it makes it worth the effort!

Swansboro Cast Net Fling Results In Lost Class Ring

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

SWANSBORO, NC

Bailee was spending the day with her parents along the White Oak river trying to catch shrimp using a cast net.  They were throwing the net from a high wooden walkway.  During one toss, Bailee’s gold college class ring slipped off of her finger into the rivers soft muddy bottom.  Bailee’s father started an online search and found Crystal Coast Ring Finders.  Just after the call, I was on my way.  To my surprise, getting close to the ring was a challenge in itself as the bottom was very soft in places and water access was also a bit of a challenge.  After pulling up various items of trash, I locked onto a strong 12 signal on the Minelab Equinox 800.  The scoop was filled with the black mud but the signal was no longer on the bottom.  After a few seconds of sifting out the mud and debris, Bailee’s ring was shining in the bottom of my scoop.  I loved the reaction from her as her eyes lit up and she jumped with joy

Lost White Gold Wedding Ring At Cape Henlopen State Park Lewes Delaware Found

  • from Lewes (Delaware, United States)
Contact:

On 06/20/2021, I received a call from Sharis girlfriend regarding the loss of her white gold wedding ring at the beach at Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes Delaware. I agreed to meet Sharis husband, Joseph at the beach so that I could attempt to locate her ring. Upon making contact with Joseph at the beach he told me that his wife had first thought that she had lost her ring in the trash at the hotel where they had been staying on vacation but that they were unable to find the ring in the trash so they felt that the ring had been lost somewhere on the beach. Joseph said that his wife had been out in the water and that she had also been sitting in a beach chair at the edge of the water. I decided to first search the area at the edge of the water where Shari had been sitting, I started a grid search and upon making a second pass I was able to locate the lost ring sitting in the wet sand at the edge of the water. The ring was recovered and returned to Joseph so that he could give it back to Shari. Joseph told me that the ring was very special because it was their original engagement ring that had two other rings soldered to it. Joseph said that the two rings that were soldered to the engagement ring had been given to his wife Shari by her mother six years ago and that Sharis mother had passed away in January of 2021.
