Lost Pistol Slide Stop found July 2017:

(Lost Item #2318)

When I received notice that a pistol slide stop was reported lost in Toppenish, Washington I hoped I would have the opportunity to search for it. I live in the neighboring state of Oregon nearly 180 miles from Toppenish. However, my brother and sister live only 20 miles from where the item was reported lost and my wife and I were planning to attend a family BBQ there in just a few weeks. We would be passing within 3 miles of the lost item!

I contacted Tony, the owner of the lost piece, and we arranged to meet and attempt the search. Tony had been target practicing with his family when the small mechanism that ejects fired cartridges malfunctioned and fell from the handgun unnoticed. The terrain was pasture grass over 12 inches long and the small piece had disappeared in the tall grass. We searched an area about 10 feet by 10 feet. To make the search even more challenging there was a large number of empty brass casings scattered over the area. It was like searching for a needle in a haystack!

After nearly 30 minutes of searching we still had not located the missing piece. We decided to expand the search area. I went about 6 feet and had a solid signal. I used my pin pointer to penetrate the tall grass and locate the target. I was very relieved to recover the small 2" x 1/2" slide stop. Tony was pleased to have what had been lost and I felt satisfaction in another successful hunt.

Lost Wedding Ring found June 2017:

(Lost Item #2313)

I cannot tell you how much we appreciate Mr. Mark Whipkey for finding my husbands wedding ring. Once our request posted we had several people call, but he was the closest to our house. Once he arrived he started looking and quickly found the ring in a flower bed under about 2" of soil. What a blessing this was for us, we were sure we would never see this ring again! Thanks again for this wonderful group of people!

Lost Engagement Ring found June 2017:

On Saturday the 24th of June, shortly after arriving at the beach, in Surfside, Texas I was approached by a recently engaged young lady who had lost her engagement ring and she and her family had been sifting the sand for and hour with their hands. At the area she pointed to several spots it may have gone into the shallow water so I began to search, digging two trash targets and the ring was the third target. When I handed it to her she was so happy she cried for a moment before realizing she needed to call her boyfriend who thought it was gone for good. The family tried to pay me but I refused. It was a pleasure. I did give them my card with LOST MY STUFF.net on it and tell them they could make a donation to the group.

Lost Engagement Ring found May 2017:

(Lost Item #2252)

I contacted Dustin, who told me his wife had lost her wedding ring near their home in Sequim, WA. He said they had been in front of their house playing and riding their ATV when she realized the ring was missing. Dustin said there had been some searching by others, but the ring had not yet been found.

I went and hunted the area that other hunters had not yet searched, including a portion of their front yard and an area across the street from their home. After about 2 hours of hunting, I found the ring in the ditch across the street, covered by leaves.

I was really excited when I brushed the leaves aside and saw the diamond, but not as excited as Dustin and his wife were when they saw the ring. Dustin later texted me "I'm still in shock, I don't know how to thank you....You just found the best memory of my life."

This recovery will certainly remain one of my favorite memories!

Lost Wedding Ring found April 2017:

(Lost Item #2263)

John,

When I received notification that a lost wedding ring had been reported I reached out to Robert. He had been doing some yard work and while pulling weeds in his backyard he discovered his wedding ring was missing. He was certain he felt the ring slide off his finger when tossing some pulled weeds. He immediately began searching for the ring. After nearly two hours of searching he reached out to the Lost My Stuff website. The next morning I arranged to meet Robert and assist with the search.

Fortunately Robert was certain to the exact area where he believed the ring was lost. I began searching the area thinking it would be a quick search. The home was built in 1906 and had been added onto and remodeled over the years. The area was filled with targets, mostly nails and a few coins. I had searched for nearly 30 minutes and was becoming concerned. I noticed a plastic basket container that had been filled with weeds that had been pulled. I thought perhaps the ring may have slipped off when weeds were placed in the container. I swept the coil over the container and got a solid signal. I removed some of the weeds and found a tinfoil wrapper. I swept the container again and there was no signal. I removed a large handful of weeds and tried again. This time a got a solid signal. I removed more weeds and nestled at the bottom of the container I located the wedding ring. Robert was very relieved and grateful to have found his ring. I was so pleased to have found the ring and return it to him.

Thank you Lost My Stuff for the opportunity to be a search volunteer and to be able to serve in this way. This was my second search and my second successful find. What a great hobby we all enjoy!

Lost Wedding Ring found February 2017:

This Success Story was received from one of our volunteers who found a ring for someone who contacted him for help, without filing a Lost Item Report:

Some of you may not be aware that one of my hobbies is metal detecting as I've done it on and off since I was a teenager and in fact built my very first one from a kit. I am a member of our neighborhood forum so when I saw a post that read "Metal Detector Needed" I was naturally curious. I made contact with the homeowner and it turned out that he had lost his wedding band and was hopeful that I might be able to find it.

One of the cool things about this hobby is you get the chance to help people find things that have great meaning to them. The homeowner shared with me that he'd been married over 40 years and that he rarely took his ring off. It had become so tight that he had to have a jeweler enlarge it for him. That, combined with recent weight loss, contributed to the ring being lost in his yard as he was digging flower bulbs.

I went over today (33 degrees with rain/sleet/snow) determined to help find his ring. After about 30 minutes of searching I hit a good signal and found it. (it was jammed into the top layer of dirt). Needless to say he was quite pleased as I was!

Lost Engagement Ring found January 2017:

(Lost Item #2212)

In the past 24 hours we experienced a very heavy snow storm dropping 6 to 8 inches of snow. Leaving work that night it was necessary for Erin to brush snow from her vehicle. When she arrived home she discovered her ring was missing. The next morning she returned with friends in an attempt to find the ring. They were unable to find it. Not only was Erin newly engaged, the ring was also a family heirloom with a great deal of personal significance. It was then she located Lost My Stuff and submitted a Lost Item Report.

I contacted Erin and arranged to meet her in the parking lot of her work place. She was very specific in showing me the area where she believed the ring was lost. It was approximately 20' by 20' and covered with 6" of snow. I turned on my AT Pro and began the search. I went about 20', turned to make a sweep in the opposite direction, went 3 feet, and got a very solid signal. I bent down to scrape the snow away. Erin quickly joined me and as I removed the packed snow, she reached into the hole and picked up her ring. It was a very emotional reunion. Through many tears she thanked me. She then confessed that she didn't think she would ever see her engagement ring again. She was thrilled and it was certainly the high point of my day.

Lost Wedding Ring found September 2016:

(Lost Item #2102)

I lost my tungsten carbide wedding ring while in my backyard on August 27th, 2016. Somehow, it slipped off while swimming and I was sure it was somewhere around the deck in the grass. After spending all afternoon searching for the ring I had worn for seven years (including a year in Afghanistan) I decided to reach out online for help. I found the "Lost My Stuff" page and filled out a report. I spent many days on my hands and knees combing through the grass with my fingers and began to feel hopeless.

A couple weeks went by and I replaced the ring but I could not get over the sense of frustration I had knowing that my ring was somewhere in my yard yet, there was nothing I could do to recover it.

I was contacted by two members of the LMS group this week and they met me at my house on Saturday morning. After showing them the area I believed the ring was, they went to work. In less than two hours, I had my ring back!!!!! It was buried a couple inches deep on the opposite end of the yard that I assumed it had been.

Without Chad and Foster, I would have never seen my ring again. I cannot express in words the happiness and relief they brought me today. They were willing to take their personal time to help a complete stranger and in the end, they were rewarded with the satisfaction of returning my ring to me. Chad and Foster also gained new friends today and this would have happened regardless of finding the ring. Chad and Foster also had informed me this was their first expedition for the LMS Group and I know this will be one of many successful days they will share helping others reconnect with their lost valuables.

Thanks again to Chad, Foster and to the Lost My Stuff Group for finding my ring and for finding my family new friends!

V/R,
Ben

Lost Wedding Ring found September 2016:

(Lost Item #2133)

I contacted Don Morton after receiving an email alert from lostmystuff.net. The ring slipped off his finger on Thursday while fishing at Lake Fork. He heard the plop and watched it flutter down in the water. I arranged to meet his friend at the location on Saturday since Don had a wedding to attend. His 5 year anniversary was on Sunday and he was very upset about the ring. I told him I'd do my best to find it.

I met up with his friend and followed him down to the dock near the area the ring was dropped and he showed me the general area. I climbed down the ladder into the water and turned on my Garrett AT Pro. My first signal was a can but after that I got a 50-53 signal. It took two scoops to get it but the ring was in the scoop! Took a total of 10 minutes to recover it!

Here is what Don sent me:

You know in 54 years very few things have left me at a loss for words besides the fact that I died in my driveway in November. I can not express my gratitude enough for your sacrifice of time and effort to help a complete stranger. It is people like you that give the human race a fighting chance against all odds. As I said before or maybe not, your an angel in big mans clothes.

Thank you
Thank you

Lost Necklace found August 2015:

(Lost Item #2070)

Hello,

I initially contacted the person who submitted the Lost Item Report and set-up a time and day for him to take me out on a boat to the location where the necklace was lost. Something came up on his end and he had to cancel. I asked him to send me a drop pin on Google Maps and a picture of the lost necklace. Where the necklace was lost was along a residential main road with no public access to the water. On the weekend, I ended up just driving up the driveway to the closest house to where the pin was dropped and asked permission to use their property to gain access to the water. The people didn't even hesitate to say YES, so I was very pleased. Getting permission to detect anywhere or just have access to a property is one of the hardest things to do with metal detecting (my opinion).

This property had a dock with a walk-down ladder so it made it very easy to get in the water. A couple of hours later the person was able to get a boat and meet me in the spot where he lost it. This just verified that I was searching in the right location. He went over how he was just playing around in the water and someone tackled him and the necklace went flying off into the water. He brought food and pop with him, so it made the search a little easier. I searched the area for another couple of hours with no results and was ran out of the water by huge thunder storms that were rolling into the area.

I wasn't about to give up, so I went to look for it another day by myself after work since the house owner said I could come back anytime. He said he lost the necklace about 200 yds off shore and in the sandy area, not where there weren't any weeds. I spent most of my time in the deeper depths and it started getting late so I starting making my way closer and closer to shore. I hit the sand/weedy line of the lake about 75 to 100 yds off shore and BAM there was it was. It was a long signal not in the range of silver on my machine, so I thought I was just digging up a pull tap or can of some sort. In the scoop was the necklace. It was only the necklace though. He told me that there was a necklace and pendant that he lost so I searched the area again and 2 to 3 feet away I got another signal and pulled it up and it was the pendant. WOOHOO. I took a picture of the necklace and pendant in the scoop and sent it to him and he was ecstatic. By the time I got out of the water he was already only a couple of minutes away from the house that I had access too. I was able to return the necklace and pendant within minutes of retrieval. What an amazing feeling being able to return something to someone who thought they would never get it back. Love this hobby!

Regards,
Matthew Collins

After meeting one of your volunteers on the beach this afternoon, while we ourselves were trying to look, we received a call from your volunteer saying they had found our item!!! It means so much to us that this ring was found. Thank you to all the volunteers who use their talents and their time to help others!!

I will definitely recommend this website to friends and family should they ever need to find something lost.

It is so good to know there are kind people out there willing to help others.

Thank you,

Lost Wedding Ring found August 2015:

(Lost Item #2078)

John,

Within hours of posting my Lost Item Report I had two responses from volunteers willing to search for my missing wedding ring. The first response I received was from Trevor. He said he was familiar with the area and asked for a bit more info about where to look first. He said he should be able to search for it in the next day or two. I didn't want to get my hopes up, but it was encouraging to know there were eager volunteer searchers willing to help.

The next morning I got a call from Trevor with some great news, he found my ring! He had gone out before work and was able to find it after about 20 minutes of searching the area. Trevor was very accommodating and we made plans to meet up later that evening. My wife and I were so relieved to know that my ring had not been lost for good.

I can't thank you and Trevor enough for the time and effort you put in to helping others locate their missing items. What a great group of people you are a part of!

Thanks,
Matt
