How to find my ring in the snow…

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

 

It was our first big snowfall of the year and it’s not surprising to get calls soon after, I received a text message from Mike asking for help to find his platinum wedding band, I called right away to discuss the search and set up a time within the next couple of hours to meet up and help him to find his ring. Mike told me he knew the specific area where he believed he felt his ring come off his finger, in my mind I knew this could probably be a quick search, but I have been surprised in the past thinking that way and it turns out to be the exact opposite.

The roads were clear and good, and I made it there pretty quickly and met up with Mike. He showed me the exact area where he believed it could’ve come off, I turn on my machine and to both of our surprise I didn’t find the ring where he felt it would be?

As always, I expended my search, knocked off the snow from the hedge and detected underneath still no signal, I then put the machine over top of the hedge and received a nice strong signal…The Ring!!!

Murphy’s Law it’s going to be not exactly where you think it will be… I know Mike was surprised that I did not find it near the reindeer, but I also knew if it was there I would find it, it’s just a process, sometimes you can walk in and come out quickly with the recovery, other times it can take longer this search took all of maybe 20 minutes. I love what I do. It makes me so happy to see how it affects a strangers life in such a beautiful and positive way…

Keys recovered from the snow

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

It happens all the time. Keys are dropped into the snow which instantly swallows them up. If it isn’t heard, they’re gone.  A metal detector works great in the snow. In this case, it took a while to get the coil above the keys, but once I did, it was pretty obvious.

Ring lost while sledding down hill Ithaca NY- FOUND

  • from Syracuse (New York, United States)

Kate called me on Saturday, Feb 5th and stated the she had lost her ring while sledding down a hill on the Ithaca College Campus.  I had just returned for a search that I was not successful because all the snowfalls that we have had this year there was lot’s of layers of snow, ice, slush, back to snow and ice again, and that builds up many layers that the metal detectors can not shot through very well.  I was putting off the search for the first ring until the snow melted down and I told Kate that I would also put of her search until then also, but that I would keep in contact with her at least once every week. Finally on February 22th the weather was right for a successful search so I set up a met for Thursday Feb 23th.  This is a video of that search

Lost car keys in snow London, Ontario

  • from London (Ontario, Canada)

Slipping down a snowbank to check the ice for some good old pond hockey, car keys went missing from a coat pocket. A quick sweep of the bank with my metal detector gave up the keys in a few feet of snow!

iPhone 13 lost after massive snowstorm in Mississauga, ON

  • from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)

Zaib was out with her Brother after a massive snow storm moved through the Ontario region recently. Mississauga was hit hard dropping 30-45cms in the region.

There was a little after shoveling horseplay going on and Zaib had her phone in the open sweatpants pocket. After return inside, she realized her iPhone 13 was missing!

They immediately went back outside to check around with no luck. 3’ to 6’ snowbanks it could be anywhere.

Zaib’s Mother luckily had taken video, which they reviewed and spotted her cell phone in the pocket but not after the horseplay!

Zaib rented a metal detector which turned out to be a pipe detection unit of some sort which they were unsuccessful.

After 2 days of searching they called me back to help out. After going over most of the area, I moved back to where Zaid fell into the snow and her Brother trying to lift her out. We then reviewed the video and 5 minutes later I heard “the tone”…. Then the set up surprise “I hit my shin” and “did you look under the gap over there?” as I winked to Zaib’s Sister!!

Here’s the video of this cell phone recovery;

Thank you Zaib for calling upon me after fellow RingFinder James could not attend but recommended me!! As well, thank you Zaib for your donation to The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! She will receive a tax receipt!

Lost Heirloom Bracelet found in Keswick Ridge, NB

  • from Fredericton (New Brunswick, Canada)

So I got a call from William who lost his 10K solid gold bracelet from his grandfather, that was given to him by his grandfather just before he passed away. He believed he lost it while at the cemetery near Keswick Ridge, NB or possibly at his parents house in Fredericton, New Brunswick, while cleaning the front and back yard. To make it even worse it snowed for the next few nights covering the area. He had spent days on hands and knees trying to locate it and finally decided to look online for a metal detector rental, but found TheRingFinders and me instead. He called and we met at his house searching the front and back yards with no success. We then drove out and searched at the cemetery where he’d attended his grandfathers funeral. Snow had fallen and been plowed off the road and shoulders forming high snow banks. We started searching from where he’d walked from the road to the cemetery entrance and then searched where he’d parked along the highway. After a short search I located the ring as it had been pushed down the roadway a bit. He was actually on the phone with his family when I walked up and dropped the ring in his hand. To say he was taken aback is an understatement and I could hear hear the families reaction over the phone as he told them it had just been found.

I was so happy to reunite you with your late grandfathers bracelet, that he gave you, I hope it brings you many years of great memories as you wear and look at it.

Cell phone lost while sledding in Thornden Park, Syracuse NY FOUND

  • from Syracuse (New York, United States)

February 2nd 2021 a young man (Phillip) calls me and states that he has lost his cell phone while sledding down the hills in Thornden Park in Syracuse NY.  It’s 9:00 p.m. so I make arrangements to meet him the next day at the park to search for the phone. When I meet Phillip he states that he is from Germany and is here in Syracuse attending the Newhouse School of Broadcasting,  part of Syracuse University.  He and his buddy have never seen so much snow before as in Germany they do get snow but NOT THIS MUCH.  Someone had told him about sledding down the hill here in Thornden Park and that all they needed was a piece of cardboard to make a sled, so off our two friends from Germany go to « play in the snow ».  Well of course while going down the hill he loses his cell phone.  This phone not only is his connection to his mother and father in Germany, but also has important information on it about his studies here in the USA.  If at all possible I must find this phone for him.

While questioning Phillip I found out that he only went down the hill twice before he noticed that he had lost his phone.  After losing his phone using his buddy’s phone he called his phone but they could not here his phone ringing. He then put on his « ear buds » and walked around and was able to « connect » to the phone.  He walked up and down the hill and in doing so « lost » the signal so he had a area about 100′ down the hill by 40′ along the hill that he was quite sure the phone was.  He and his buddy were digging and searching for the phone using the signal from to ear buds when the phone battery went down.  They searched into the night, and then using his buddy’s phone search and found « The Ring Finders » and myself.

It’s the next day that we had another 8″ of snow last night so all signs of sledding and searching had been covered up, but Phillip told me the approximate area that he had sled down, so off I go up to my knees in new and old snow.  We work up and down the hill moving along the area where he was sure he had gone down yesterday.  Lots of « hits » but when dug, they were all below the grass.  Certainly not his phone.  After covering and doing a grid search of the area where he was sure he had slid yesterday, we checked out the « launching » area where he would have stated the slide down the hill.  Still no phone. It’s been about 1 1/2 hour and I’m getting tired and wet, but I have to get his phone tonight if there is any chance of saving it from getting wet inside and « blowing it up »   We then go back down the hill to expand the search both along the hill and further down the hill, and the first search further to the left of where he was sure he wasn’t, BINGO, the phone.

I told Phillip how to resurrect his phone. DO NOT RECHARGE IT YET.  BUY SOME WHITE RICE AND PUT THE CELL PHONE AND THE RICE INTO A ZIP LOCK BAG, SEAL THE BAG AND LET IT STAND FOR 72 HOURS.  Then plug it in, cross your fingers and do a little prayer.  I think his phone will be OK.
