  • A long drive, but a great outcome! (2018)


    On Tuesday, July 3rd, at about 4:50 p.m., I got a call from Max asking if I could assist him with a search for a lady’s ring up in Hesperia. Max explained that he received a call from the husband who sounded a bit frantic, saying his wife couldn’t find her wedding rings (a 3-piece set). He explained that his wife was not feeling good on Saturday and had taken some Nyquil and then proceeded to change their baby daughter. That’s the last time she remembers having her rings.

    So I met Max at Bass Pro Shop in Rancho Cucamonga and we carpooled up to the house. We were met by a young couple, Kyle and Jennifer. Jennifer explained basically the same as her husband had said and added that since Saturday, they have torn the house apart looking for them, even cutting open the bottom cover on their sofa. They had family members and friends come over to help search. We found out later that Kyle went out and bought a metal detector to help with the search, but he couldn’t quite understand how to work it.

    We walked through the house with Jennifer, retracing her steps from Saturday. Max asked if the trash was still available and it was. Thinking Jennifer may have accidently dropped her rings when she was changing the baby, Max asked if the baby’s soiled diapers were bagged “like a sausage” in a plastic bag (Max knew this term from being a grandparent. I’m a grandparent but couldn’t remember from 10 years back!). So knowing the house was thoroughly checked, Max chose to start with the trash. They had 2 trash cans, one with just cut grass. So Max tipped over the trash and pulled the “sausage” bag out. We proceeded to go over each individual “present” with metal detector and pinpointer. Nothing. Max grabbed the shovel laying there and started taking a shovel full of trash and putting it in a wheelbarrow that was there and we started going through the papers, containers, boxes, etc., transferring it to the grass can. We were almost to the bottom of the can, still not finding them, when suddenly Max spotted one of the outer narrow bands in with the styrofoam container with what appeared to be breakfast leftovers in the wheelbarrow. As he picked it up, I noticed the main ring nearby, and with the moving of more breakfast, Max found the 3rd and final band. Needless to say Jennifer was elated and Kyle was relieved! A long drive, but a great outcome!
