Wedding Ring Located in Bush at Wilton, Wellington, New Zealand

from Wellington (New Zealand)

Amy contacted me and told me that her wedding ring had gone out the window and fallen 3 levels into a steep bush clad bank.  She, and her husband Antonio, spent several hours searching for it without successs.

When I arrived the job looked daunting so I got Amy to drop a test ring (with a red ribbon attached) out the window.  I watched it disappear through the trees and could hear it bouncing off branches.

Luckily the red ribbon was visible when I got down to ground level.  Started working from that point, but the ground was difficult with a lot of rusty nails and a storm water pipe running under the ground straight through the middle of my search area.

A short time later, and only about 2 metres from where my test ring had landed I got a faint signal amongst all the clutter.  The pinpointed soon zeroed in on the small gold band underneath some loose foliage.

Ring Located !

Antonio & Amy

Amy and Antonio couldn’t believe I had found it when I showed it to them.

The smiles says it all.

    Way to go Al! Tossing a test ring or three can save a lot of time. I also have a lucky anchor I’ve managed to drop 4m from a ring and 2m from an anchor I was after in 10m of water! Not bad as I’ve only used it those two times..
