Ring Recovery at a Local Creek for a Fisherman

  • from Bryson City (North Carolina, United States)

Got an email form Brett about a lost ring.  I contacted him and the next morning we  were able to get together.  It seems that he was cleaning fish at the creek side, and the fish slime caused his wedding band to slip off.  I made it a little harder for myself than I needed to but I finally went back to the beginning and sure enough, there was the ring.  I want to thank Brett and his wife for their kindness.  Now he can enjoy the rest of his stay here in the NC Smokey Mountains.  Please watch the video to see the whole story.

Ring Recovery – Platinum & 3 Carat Diamond

  • from Bryson City (North Carolina, United States)

I recently had a nice lady named Carrie contact me through a Craigslist ad that I run about my services with The Ring Finders.  She was in desperate need of help finding her engagement ring that was Platinum with a 3 carat diamond.  Needless to say she needed it found as quickly as possible.  She had been desperately searching for a week and had no luck.  She even had another detectorist come out with no results.  We made arrangements for me to be there at her house at 7:30 the next morning.

We started off that crisp morning with a search around a landscaped area with a tall holly tree.  No luck.  We expanded the search to the end of the driveway area in a wooded section where she had already searched by hand and gathered up all the leaves and bagged them up.  She even had my pinpointer and was searching areas of the lawn.  After almost three hours of searching, I was beginning to have my doubts about the search but persistence paid off.  Just 18″ away from where she had been raking leaves, I found the beautiful ring just under the leaf cover.  To say she was happy is an understatement!

I’m very glad that I was able to make her smile and reunite her with her beautiful ring. I also want to thank her for her more than generous reward. Please watch the video below for more details.

I recently found a GoPro 4 on a river hunt. After looking at the video on the camera I was able to post some snap shots on FB and with some help, I was able to locate the owner. Here is the return to a happy owner.
Thank you Travis for your generous reward.
