… Katie was at Huntington City Beach with her friend. Her friend Julie lost a hierloom gold ring that was gifted to her by her grandfather. Julie had set the ring on the edge of the towel while applying sunscreen.

Katie called me this afternoon waiting at the location. Her friend had to leave because she had an important appointment she couldn’t miss.

I was able to meet Katie at the location just north of the Huntington Beach Pier. The search was successful because they contacted me soon after the loss and one of them was able to put me on the spot.. Timing is important and secondly, staying or marking the location so we can get in the general location . Thanks for Katie calling me and staying in the general area.  Team work makes recoveries look easy..

Wedding Ring Lost in Sand at Glinks Gully, Dargaville – Found.

  • from Paihia (New Zealand)

I was just about to head out for a kayak when the phone rang…
Nick had been staying at Glinks Gully near Dargaville with his young family for the last week, playing daily in the sand dunes and playground.
It wasn’t until later he realised his wedding ring of only 4 months was no longer on his finger – Could I help?

While Glinks was outside my regular area, I offered to try and find a detectorist near by but with my near 100% hit rate, Nick decided he wanted me to do the job.

The kayak came off the car, the detectors went in, and I started on the 170km, two and a bit hour journey…

Nick was already onsite and greeted me warmly, he was very keen to recover his lost ring and having read some of my success stories on my page was upbeat about a positive result.

Before I got the gear out, I did my usual walk and talk – Looking at the scene, drawing on my Search & Rescue tracking and Clue Processing experience and asking what may have appeared to be rather odd questions, but all building the behavioural profile of Nicks actions leading up to the loss. I isolated two high probability areas, if it wasn’t there I would start on ‘the rest of the world’ as I refer to anything outside the indicated search area.

With the machine in hand and Nick in tow, I started on the first area. This was a playground with a deep base of soft, golden fluffy sand where Nick had been pushing his son on the swings. A ring dropped here would have vanished below the surface instantly.

First run under the swings gave a $2 coin, then on the other side of the swing a solid « Lost Wedding Ring » tone 🙂

I shook the sand out of the scoop to reveal the ring, and with a big grin tossed it over to Nick – His face was in disbelief as he looked down at his wedding ring sitting safely in his hand.

Family heirloom diamond ring found – Orange Beach, Alabama

          My Sunday started out with my BFF and detecting buddy Cheryl Clark of Gulf Shores and I attending church followed by a lovely fellowship lunch where we indulged in some delicious homemade goodies. Afterward, we set out for one of our favorite detecting honey holes …. Only to arrive there and realize that one of us (I’m not naming names !) had forgotten our detector. Slightly disappointed, we decided to head back home and call it a day.

          As we drove to Cheryl’s house, we decided to see what was showing at a nearby movie theater. As luck would have it, something we wanted to see was starting soon so we ran home to change clothes, grab the missing detector since it usually stayed in my car,  and head to the movies at The Wharf in Orange Beach. It was interesting that, during that drive, I was thinking out loud and shared with Cheryl that I felt that there was a reason we couldn’t detect that day and that God must have wanted us at the movies instead for some reason.

         With the movie almost over, I saw a call on my watch from an unknown number and a voice mail. Sneaking my phone out, I read a message from Jason that he believed his wife Florence had lost a very sentimental ring the day before …… At The Wharf ! I quickly texted him and let him know that we happened to already be right there and that I would call him back in about 20 minutes. The movie ended and we walked out to meet up with Jason and Florence. They relayed to us that they had attended a car show there the day before. Florence remembered that she had taken her family heirloom ring off to put lotion on her hands, and thought maybe she had it still in her lap when she got out of the car. They had searched the car and the parking lot already and had even had someone at their hotel come take the sink apart in case it had fallen in the drain.

       Looking over the vast gravel parking lot, Cheryl and I exchanged a knowing glance. This was gonna be a tough one – almost impossible in fact ! The chances of someone else having spotted it on the hard, flat ground and picking it up seemed high. Nevertheless, we set out with our detectors to search.  An hour and a couple of pocketfuls of pull tabs, bottle caps and miscellaneous metal bits and pieces later and still no ring, the disappointed couple felt like they really needed to set out on their drive back home to Louisiana. We told them we would stick around and look just a little while longer. Just as I watched them drive off, I heard an excited “whoop whoop” from Cheryl and, against all odds, there in her hand was Florence’s beautiful platinum and diamond ring !! I quickly called Jason’s number and asked if they could turn around and come back. I was trying to sound nonchalant but he could hear Cheryl’s excited voice in the background as we were ooing and aahing over the stunning ring. The look on Florence’s face was priceless as she tearfully slipped “Grandma Florence’s” ring back on her finger. She and Jason agreed that our serendipitously being at the theater that day instead of 30 miles away detecting was truly meant to be !

       Although I live in Mobile and Cheryl lives in Gulf Shores, we metal detect together often and frequently tag team or join together to look for lost jewelry for folks. So, no matter which side of Mobile Bay you’re on, Cheryl and I just might be in the right place at the right time !


Gold and Greenstone Ring Lost at Coopers Beach, Quickly Recovered

  • from Paihia (New Zealand)

Jamie posted on the local Facebook page that he’d lost his treasured gold ring, passed down from his uncle, while on holiday at Coopers Beach the previous day.
Unfortunately he had posted very detailed information as to the location.
Knowing this beach was regularly worked by casual metal detectorists, time was of the essence.
I got hold of him directly and was quickly on the road, making the 80km drive to the beach.

Arriving at Coopers Beach, it was heartening to see that there were no tell-tale scoop marks or gridlines in the sand and I got started.
Just under an hour after seeing his Facebook post, I was sending a photo of the ring to Jamie – It was now safely secured.

A couple of weeks later, I was working further down country and Jamie made the drive to meet me so I could hand over his lost ring.

After a short discussion about how the loss occurred and what type ring I was looking for, I began a grid search with my metal detector. The ring showed up soon after I began the search. Everyone at the party was elated and surprised that Don’s ring was found where so many of them had spent hours trying to find it. Don was happy to have his ring that he has worn for many years.

Wedding Ring lost in Huntington Beach sand

Call Surf City Ring Finder 714-944-0555

Josh’s friend called me from the beach to ask if I could help find Josh’s ring which flew off his finger while he was playing football.

This was a very quick recovery, I located the ring on my second signal from my detector. It helped that they were able to narrow down the search area to a small piece of beach.

A Wedding Ring Goes Swimming At Mactaquac, NB

  • from Fredericton (New Brunswick, Canada)

So I got a call from Marie-Andrée that she had been at the beach with her family and her child reached up to grab her hand and pulled her wedding ring off of her finger. They searched for over an hour in the exact spot with no luck, then found me through The Ring Finders site. I told them I could come immediately and to try to secure or maintain the site. She said they had to leave to take their child home, but her husband would return and show me where it was lost. I headed home to gear up and arrived an hour later, her husband and his friend arrived about 10 min later and showed me the area. We carried my gear down to the beach and I went into the water to do a quick search as he was very sure of the exact location using guard tower, buoys, and water height as triangulation references. Initial search found no targets, so I set up my markers and gridded off a 20′ X 20′ area, searched NS/SN then EW/WE, only turning up a loonie and some sharp garbage/junk. He was very sure of the area so I switched to all metal mode on my Garrett AT Pro International and swept the area again, finding only one rusty snap dome. then expanded my search outside the original grid going around the square. On my second layer out my headphones screamed and I knew what it was. Using my scoop I took a bite out of the bottom and the signal was gone on recheck, look in the scoop and I see a brilliant flash of circle. I called them over and told them I needed another piece of equipment, if they could mark the spot while I retrieved it. I grabbed my GoPro made the attached video. They were very excited as were the people around, who had been observing the search. I packed up and after some photos, he headed home to return the ring to his wife’s finger where it belonged. She sent me a nice thank you and photo of the ring on her finger. Thanks for calling on me and allowing me to reunite you with your lost ring and add a very cool chapter to its story.
