I received a text message yesterday evening in regards to lost gold and diamond ring. This was a young ladies wedding band, she went on to tell me the story of the ring and how important it was to her and how sad she was that she had lost it. The good news was she was most certain it was lost at a Christmas tree farm in Langley. The story of the ring as it was a gift from her late father to give to her daughter one day, these stories always pulls at the heart strings.

We set up a time to meet in the morning, the owners were so kind to let us go in and do the search, after meeting the young couple, and hearing their story about where they believe the ring was lost and for the fact that husband pinned the location where they cut the tree down and where they believed the ring may have come off her finger ,that was such a blessing he marked the location!

Most times people forget the most important things and that’s a landmark or in this situation, pinning the location so that he could get back to it. Let’s face it there’s a lot of trees there and it would be so difficult to find the exact location which is so important when you’re looking for something that small. After a short time searching the ring was found under a Christmas tree, it was a good thing that nobody had cut that one down because they would’ve easily seen the ring laying underneath it.

So many factors play in these searches, and one is asking the right questions in order to get into the area and after listening carefully to her story there was two locations I was very interested in and I started in the one I felt I had the best chance… It only took minutes to find her ring & smile.

How to find my ring in the snow…

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…

Find a Lost Ring in the Ocean

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a text message the other night in regards to a lost ring at Spanish Banks Beach, in the ocean. The message asked if there would still be a chance to find it the next day as we were being hit with some high winds. I text back and said absolutely worth a shot, so we set up a time to meet the next morning, when I met this young man I could tell how much this really meant to him and his wife. He went on to tell me that he was only married for a little over a year and the ring meant the world to him and I could tell how much he loved his wife and didn’t want to upset her with the news that evening. He waited to tell her the next morning and he said she was very upset and he was in the doghouse for a little while, but after telling her he had asked me to come out and help that put her mind to rest a little bit.

He told me it was dark when he entered the water so I got him to mark off an area for me to search, I also knew because it was dark he may be off the mark by who knows 10, 20, 30 yards?. He had to get to work so I got down to business and started searching the area where the high title line met the dry line. He told me he was only 10 feet below the high tide line, of course I would search much further down for the what if factor.  I was pretty confident his ring was going to bed down pretty quickly in the sand due to the weight of his ring.

After close to 6 1/2 hours (17,961 steps) unfortunately I did not find his ring, I reached out to let him know, I could tell he was very disappointed, I told him I was going back the next day to extend the search area. That night I laid in bed thinking what I could have done differently, was there something I didn’t do or somewhere I didn’t look? I knew because it was dark he could be off the mark,  I did overextend my grid search but it wasn’t until the next morning when I saw where the high tide line was on the beach that changed everything.

When I got there the first day and looked for the high tide line and knowing it was a 14.74 high tide I was confident I was looking at the right line and started my search from there down. The next day I saw the high tide line I was working the day before and I saw my grid lines more than 20 feet down…Game changer! That told me the high tide ling wasn’t that high up, there was a seaweed line across the beach where the high tide was and I started my search from there and down and about 40 yards east out of my grid I found his ring!

Makes me so happy when I can find and continue these beautiful stories for people! The ring was close to a foot down and in a few days it may have been too deep to detect.

How to find gold with a metal detector

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I got a phone call from a young man who lost a special pendant with his name on it, he lost it at a picture and put golf course at Central Park in Burnaby. His gold chain got caught on his golf bag and broke the clasp and he lost a gold cross and his gold pendant. He remembered this happen at the 14th hole but didn’t realize it had broken until he got to the 16th hole when he felt his chain fall off his neck, he looked around and went back to the 15th hole where he teed off and found his gold cross by a bench but he couldn’t find the pendant with the name  »Marshall » on it.

He search for a while but it was getting too dark so he packed it up went home, he remembered seeing a story about John Cryer who lost his ring here in Vancouver and that’s how he found TheRingFinders. We talked about the chances of finding this pendent but he couldn’t meet me there in the morning to show me his movements because he had to work. I knew it was three holes 14,15 and 16 so I got out there first thing in the morning and walked around to see if I could eyeball the gold pendent, I felt it should’ve just set up somewhere and easily been spotted. However two hours grid searching and I could not find his pendant.

I packed it up reached out to Marshall and asked if we can meet the next day, he arranged to meet me after his work this way I was able to see exactly what he could remember and where he may have been off the course. That being said I was very curious to search the area with my Metal Detector where he found the gold cross, as it made sense to me if one fell the other one should be close bye. After a few minutes at the 15th hole I got a 4-5 in a bit of loose dirt and grass I moved it with my foot inside a beautiful colour of gold and his name. I was able to surprise marsha and so happy to get back that pendant that was a gift from his late grandmother. These are such sentimental items that can never be replaced and it was an honour to be able to help continue that story for the showman.

Lost Ring from Guatemala Found in Lehi, Utah

I received a call from my longtime childhood friend regarding his son and a ring he had just purchased while on a humanitarian trip to Guatemala. The whole family spent a week doing service project in villages and cities across Guatemala! What an experience!!! His oldest boy purchased a ring from a local shop to remember his special experience but shortly after returning to Utah, He lost it while having a water balloon fight in the backyard. Owen was devastated about losing the ring and I wanted to make sure to get it back to him. It took about 15 minutes to find the ring after gridding off the area in question. I think his smile tells the story of how excited he was to see his ring again!

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.

Found Wallet on Vancouver Street

I was driving to Spanish banks to look for a child’s two lost retainers on the beach and on my way I noticed something on the roadway that caught my eye. I pulled over right away and ran back and found a Coach wallet/ hand purse. It’s amazing to think that was in the middle of the road in a high traffic area and no one saw it. I went back to my car opened up the wallet and it was full of ID and credit cards, my first thought was this poor lady must be freaking out right now.  I saw a Washington state drivers license so I thought to myself this is going to be hard to find this person!

This isn’t the first time I found a wallet in the middle of a busy road and the last one the man put it on his car while he was pumping gas and forgot it was there, I kinda felt the same thing happened with this lady, she must’ve put it on her vehicle and drove away.

In the past I have lost my wallet a few times, one time with a lot of money and I never saw it again, so he/she must’ve needed it more than me. I noticed this lady was a practising lawyer in Vancouver and I reached out to a contact number that was found in her wallet, I left my contact info.

After meeting the lady at Spanish Banks in regards to the lost retainers and my unsuccessful search, I went back to my car and checked out the wallet I found. To my surprise I found a BC drivers license with an address, it was less than a mile from where I found the wallet. I drove to the address and knocked on the door and a lady greeted me and saw what I was holding and right away she told me that her daughter had lost her wallet and was on the phone with the bank…

I met her daughter and she told me the story that as she was putting her son into the car seat she had put the wallet on her vehicle and forgot, she also said how tired she had been from a lack of sleep raising her newborn, very much understandable!!

You can imagine her relief as I’m sure it would have taken a lot of time to get all that replaced…

Brant Beach (LBI) NJ Wedding Band lost for 2 months recovered by Edward Trapper NJ Ring Finder August 2022

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)
Valentina called yesterday after I was tagged on her post about her beautiful wedding ring that was lost in Beach Haven N.J (LBI) almost 2 months ago, on July 4th. We talked for a while, and determined that where it was lost there was a good chance it could still be there. She wasn’t positive the ring was on the beach, but sure did know where her towel was, which is a good starting point for my search. We decided to begin early today before swimmers arrived. About 30 minutes later my machine gave a REAL nice solid tone, and sure enough, the ring was in the scoop. The ring will be reunited soon with Val as she is about 2 hours away.#njringfinder, #lostring,#lostcross,#lavallettenj,#ortleybeachnj,#lostringLBI,#lostringholgatenj,#lostringsurfcitynj

I got a call from a young man who needed help searching his parents yard for his lost wedding band, sadly he lost his ring the day he got married, at the reception in his parents backyard. His friend came over the next day to help search for two hours with a metal detector, but no luck. After asking my questions I decided to head out the next morning to Abbotsford which is over an hour drive to help this young man find his wedding band. He was working that day so I met his mother and she showed me the area where he was in the yard which is pretty much the whole backyard, I set up my gridlines and began to search, it was a hot day and after an hour I found his beautiful gold wedding band that was on his hand less than a half a day.

I gotta say I get just excited to find what I’m looking for as the person I find it for, I can understand how painful that must’ve been losing something so sentimental that was just giving to you that day from a person you’re gonna spend the rest your life with that you love very much.

It was an honour to be able to help continue that story for him, as his story was just beginning! I have to say he was not the first and he will not be the last to lose his ring on his wedding day.

Congratulations to to you and your bride may you have a very long and healthy & happy life together!

Lost wedding ring in LBI Beach Haven NJ Found By Matt St.Germain The Ring Finders New Jersey

  • from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)

Recovery #165

Last night I was contacted by Sandra. She was referred to me by fellow ring finder Ed Cropski. While at the beach with her family she removed her Platinum diamond wedding band and placed it on the arm rest of her chair to put lotion on. She became distracted and forgot to put her ring back on. When they left the ring fell off the chair and disappeared into the sand. She did not realize it was missing until after getting back to the house. I made arrangements with her to meet at the location for a search later at night. She showed me the area they were sitting and in about 20mins I found it! Sandra and her friend Lisa were overjoyed! Another Happy ending!

Sandra’s lost ring! Watch here!
