I received a text late lastnight (12-29-21) from Logan asking if I’d be able to help him locate his wedding ring. He was wiping the fresh snow off of his mailbox in front of his house. During the sweeping motion, his wedding ring came off and fell in the snow and immediately disappeared out of sight. We set up a time for this morning at 7 am to meet. After a quick explanation of the ring loss I turned on my detector, and in about 45 seconds, I had the ring!! This was the fastest recovery so far!!
I received a text from Brenna on Wednesday telling me that her husband was in thier back yard doing some chores and lost his wedding ring while tossing a piece of pipe. So we set up a time for me to come search that Friday evening. When I arrived I met Callum in the backyard and he gave me a quick description of what he was doing, where he was standing, and where he felt the ring come off. In just a few minutes I got a bouncy but strong 21-23 signal. I reached down with the pinpointer and it started beeping before it reached the ground! I pulled the grass back to see Callum’s wedding ring just under the grass and just slightly pushed into the ground.
I received a text from Melissa letting me know that she’d heard about me on The Ring Finders website. She said that she had lost her wedding rings in her backyard back in May which was a little over four months ago. I assured her that if she indeed did lose them in the backyard they should be pretty easy to find. After a few weeks we were able to set up a time to do the search. She gave me the story of how she thought that the rings were lost. Her and her husband were having a water ballon fight with their son in their backyard. When she went inside later in the day she noticed that her rings were missing. So I started a grid search on the left side of the backyard and I carefully worked my way across the the yard. I was running out of space quickly but after about a hour of searching and only about 2 passes left before covering the entire yard I got a loud double beep! I knew that it was the rings! As i looked down i could see one laying in a small patch of dirt without any grass, and as I was bending over to grab it I spotted a second one about a foot away! That’s 2! The other one couldn’t be far. After a couple of swings about 4 feet away was the 3rd one!! Melissa was very emotional after I handed her the rings and told me how the 2 wedding bands were constructed from jewlery from living and passed family members! I was so happy to be able to help!
I received a email from Linda yesterday stating that she had lost her car key fob and the attached keys the day before. In the meantime our area got hit with a nasty snow and ice storm so the snow plows were out plowing the roads , driveways and even the sidewalks. So I met up with Linda the following morning and she showed me her suspected area of the lost keys. I asked her if she had another fob for the car. She did! Not only that, she had the same exact set of keys, fob, keychain, and key ring!! So I took a few sample swings over the spare set. (It was a jumpy 11-24 on the Nox (800) After an hour of searching evey snow pile the best I could, I went back to one of the first piles and went around the other side and down the street a little bit farther (expanding my search) and got that same jumpy loud signal high up in the snow pile! I carefully chipped away the snow and ice chucks and brushed away the loose debris and out rolled the missing key fob!! Unharmed to boot!
I received a email last night around 8 pm from Teresa asking if I was able to search for her husband Jake’s wedding band that he lost while he was throwing salt down in their driveway. I contacted her the next morning as soon as I seen the email. I assured her that it shouldn’t be a problem and that I was willing to come take a look for it. So immediately packed up my gear and made the 30 minute drive over to their house. After a quick introduction and explanation of the prior days shoveling and salting, (which is how we believe the ring came off), while throwing the salt. So I grabbed my detector (Equinox 800) and pinpointer and began searching the snow piles along the edge of the driveway. I made one trip down the driveway searching along the side of the shoveled snow pile. Then I went on the opposite side of the pile, and about halfway back down the driveway, I got a repeatable 17-18 signal. After sticking the pinpointer into the snow I could tell that there was something in the snow pile. After moving a handful of snow I seen the glimmer of gold!!
Took about 10 minutes or less!
Happy New Year Jake & Teresa!
