Bayville NJ Lost wedding band in the grass Recovered by Edward Trapper NJ Ring Finder September 29 2022

  • from Surf City (New Jersey, United States)
Mary sent me a message about a lost wedding band. She explained that her husband Kyle was washing the cars and his wedding ring had disappeared. He searched the cars, flower beds by the hose, and all around in the grass. They even tried with a metal detector and had no luck. I arranged to meet at the house after work the next day. After talking with Kyle about where the ring could possibly be, he went inside and told me to just ring the bell. He barley had closed the door when my machine gave a tone that was without a doubt his ring. I rang the bell and the look on his face was priceless. Later on after the recovery I found out Kyle and I share the same birthday, Happy Birthday Kyle, this was a great day for sure. #njringfinder, #lostring,#lostcross,#lavallettenj,#ortleybeachnj,#lostringLBI,#lostringholgatenj,#lostringsurfcitynj,#lostringlongbranchnj,#lostringbradleybeachnj,

Lost Ring English Bay Beach

Vancouver Ring Finder Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

I got a call this afternoon in regards to a lost silver spoon ring that was custom-made for this young lady and other family members by their Nana who is 99 years old. I was on my way to Chilliwack for a search when it got called off so I headed straight to English Bay beach to help Kathy.

It was Sunday and it was a nice sunny day and it didn’t take me too long to get there and meet Kathy and hear the story on what this ring meant to her and how important it was to get it back. The fact that it was lost the same day I felt confident I would pull this out of the sand for her, it’s just a matter of doing a grid search to find it.  Kathy told me she was at the beach when a volleyball came towards her and she picked it up and threw it back to the players and that’s when her ring came flying off of her finger.

She told me that her hands were cold and the ring flew off with the ball towards the players, she and others search but could not find the ring, sadly. She called her boyfriend and he went online and found TheRingFinders. When I arrived I must’ve had three or four people come up to me and see a lady had lost her ring and I told her I was there to help that lady and they were very happy to hear that, so nice that so many people cared for this young lady and we’re all hope for I will find a ring for her.

It didn’t take long to find that beautiful silver spoon ring, it was nowhere near where Kathy thought the ring would be, it was almost where she was standing and that’s because the ring came off on the downward swing of the throw.

Lost Rings at Beach

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I was on my computer early this morning when I got a text message from a young lady at approximately 7:20 AM asking if I could help find her ring. I called her right away and we set up a time to meet in 45 minutes at Kits Beach, where she lost the ring. When I arrived at the beach I met the young lady and she showed me the approximate area where she believed she lost her ring’s. That’s right rings, she had lost two rings not just one but there was one ring with a Pearl that meant the world to her. I asked her if she could tell me the story about the ring but I could tell she was a little uncomfortable and I didn’t want to force it.

I set up my grid search and had no luck for the first hour and a half but I kept on expanding my search area and close to two hours mark I found both of her rings! I was able to surprise her with the rings and see how it made her feel to have them back on her finger. I got to hear the story about why the pearl ring meant to her, she told me a few years back she had a tough battle with depression and she bought that ring to celebrate hanging on and she did. You can only imagine with that ring meant to her to get it back, I was so honoured to be able to find it and hand it back to her and see how it made her feel.

I know I said this before and I’ll say it again, I am so proud of  ”TheRingFinders” and all the members who have joined to help people in their towns & city’s. This is a very needed service and we have reached  10,000 recorded recoveries this month.

Lost Pendant found in high grass in 10 minutes

  • from Nashville (Tennessee, United States)

I received a call from Gus one afternoon. His wife had lost an heirloom pendant in the back yard. This pendant had a small Roman Coin inside of a gold basil. The entire pendent was dime sized. Gus said that his grass was high and they couldn’t locate the item. I told him not to cut the grass and that I would be there the next afternoon. I go to the the house and was met by his wife. She was excited at the possibility of me finding her lost treasure. they had placed a flag in the area she had lost the pendant. I geared up and headed to the flag. After finding a screw in the area. I hit a signal the was a little jumpy. I told her ” I feel good about this”. I ran the pinpointer across the area and there she was! I picked up the pendant and asked, “Is this what we ae looking for?” I got huge YES and a great big smile. Glad we could return it to her.



Gold Pendent Lost in Nashville-Found!

  • from Chattanooga (Tennessee, United States)

Brooke contacted me even though she was in Nashville and I was in Chattanooga.  There are two ring finders in the Nashville area, but neither of them were available.  I agreed to go, even though it was about a two-and-a-half-hour drive for me.  She had lost a gold pendant while she was competing in a charity event at a local golf course.  The pendent was from her late grandfather, so it had a lot of sentimental value.  I left early enough from the Chattanooga area to get there by 6:00AM so we could get started before the course opened.  That event was a sack race. They were not on the fairways, but in the grass off to the side.  I’m not familiar with the course layout, but I think it was off to the side of tee box #10 where they had the sack race.  Brooke had previously gotten permission from the course manager.  The first thing I did was scan the edges of the cart paths, and it was not there, except for a square pull-tab.  Yep, those are everywhere we go.  Fortunately, someone had taken a video clip of the sack race, and I could clearly see she had the pendent on during the race.  But more importantly, I could use that to hone in on where the race took place. From the viewpoint of the video there were several small trees on the left background.  In the left foreground there was a grassy hill that had been scalped on the top by the mowers.  On the right very edge of the screen I saw a homeowner’s metal fence that was bordering his back yard.  So, using those landmarks I was able to pinpoint exactly where the sack race took place.  Most of the grass there was short enough to see the pendent if you walked close to it.  Some of the grass was tall enough to hide an object that small, so that’s where I focused my detecting first.  While I was scanning the taller grass, Brooke asked if there was anything she could do.  I said most of this grass is short enough that you could most likely see it if you walked right over it.  So, knowing exactly where the race had taken place, I had started scanning around halfway to the finish line where the taller grass was, and Brooke started walking ahead of me near the finish line where the shorter grass was.  After around twenty minutes or so, I saw Brooke lean over and pick something up, she said, “I found it!”  It was visible if you walked right over it, so someone else could have seen it before we got there.  Fortunately, it was still there.

Gold Ring Found in Doubtless Bay Chicken Coop

  • from Paihia (New Zealand)

I was recommended to Kim and Kevin after Kevin had lost his Great Grandfathers ring, passed down to the eldest son through the generations. His father sadly passed away recently and Kevin became the new custodian.  Understandably, the ring carries a huge sentimental attachment.
Kevin wasn’t sure where, or when, he had lost it.
He just knew that it wasn’t beside the sink after he’d finished washing his hands after working in the garden that morning.
He had a few sleepless nights before the day of the search!

On site, I retraced Kevins activities. I made note of each area of interest and ranked them as to the likelihood of holding the ring as we wandered around the property.
There were three probable areas, but I had brought the remote camera with me, just in case it got all forensic with nooks and crannies (Or “Crooks and Nannies” as I like to call them).

First up was the garden where he had been planting seedlings and weeding. Lots of wisps of wire and assorted metal with the big coil, I switched to the small handheld coil.
This was better in among the random signals, but slow going to ensure every coil sweep was overlapped to avoid missing a single square inch.

Then I headed down to the chicken run where he had spread some hay out.
Several problems were encountered in here; The abundance of metal chicken mesh in close quarters, the fact that every time I stopped to investigate a target under the hay at least one chicken adopted me as a fancy perch with foot-warming function… and, let’s just say I was glad I was wearing disposable gloves as well!

Despite the assistance in removing various invertebrates, the chickens and I did not locate the ring in the run.Spotting fresh straw had also been placed in the nest boxes, I moved outside – thankful to be vertical and chicken-free.
I worked my way through each of the nest boxes, when my fingers closed on a heavy, round ring buried under the sawdust.

I left it under the watchful gaze of the chooks, while I took my gear back to the car then called out to Kevin.
“I’ve got something of yours!”,  and led him and his wife to the chicken run.

I opened up the nest box and Kevin reached in to retrieve the ring.

It remains a mystery how and why it came off here, as it is a tight fit on his finger and the nest box was not a ‘likely’ area.
We could only assume that the strings when carrying the bales had worked it down his finger without him noticing – only to drop off as he fluffed up the sawdust.

Regardless, Kevin had now been reunited with his Great Grandfathers ring.

Job done.

Lost ring on soccer field

  • from Erie (Pennsylvania, United States)

Lost Ring on Soccer Field

On June 18th, Josh contacted me regarding his lost wedding band. Josh was playing his weekly Wednesday soccer game with friends when he noticed his ring was no longer on his finger. Josh and his friends searched the field tirelessly, but had no luck. Josh googled “lost wedding ring” and found The Ring Finders website where he then contacted me.

I met him at the soccer field that day and he showed me where he believes he lost it. I then got to work, immediately searching the area where Josh believed he lost his ring. After about 15 minutes, I recovered the ring on the soccer field.

I called Josh to let him know that I found his ring and he was thrilled!

Thank you, Josh for entrusting me to locate your lost wedding band!
