  • It was a miracle! It was two days after I had lost my rings... (2011)

    I lost my engagement ring and wedding band on the beach in Dana Point two days ago, Thursday June 30th. I did not realize I had lost my rings until the next morning when I went to put them on. I take them off every night. I immediately realized how and when I lost them. When I was putting sunscreen on my 4 month old I took my rings off and put them in the cup holder of my chair. I completely forgot about them. I went back the next day Friday July 1st and spoke to the lifeguards to see if anything had been turned in. Of course no rings, just a cell phone and watch. I desperately tried to locate a metal detector to go back in the evening to try and look again. The metal detector I had borrowed from a friend was a joke. It looked like a toy and sure enough no luck! That is when I turned to Doug Carney. He said he could come out right away. He showed such amazing enthusiasm and assured me he could find them. We made arrangements to meet the next morning bright and early to beat the crowd. I didn't really know what to expect and when I saw the kind of equipment he had and his friend he brought I felt at ease. I had a great feeling we were going to find the rings. I took him to the location on the beach where I thought I had lost them and he first prayed then right to work. About 15 minutes went by before he found the first ring. I was overjoyed!!! I would have left a happy girl with just that ring. Then his friend took a turn looking through the sand with his metal detector and within 5 minutes my engagement ring was found! It was a miracle! It was two days after I had lost my rings and it was apparent the tide had come up the night before and they still found my rings with no problem at all. I am forever grateful the Doug and would recommend him to anyone in need!

    Thank you for your time!

    God Bless,
