On 01/28/17, I received a phone call from Bob regarding the loss of his Gold and Diamond ring that was lost in the dry sand on the beach in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Bob said that on the evening of 01/27/17, he was on the beach feeding the seagulls. Bob said that his ring was loose and that at one point while throwing food into the air for the birds his ring came off of his finger and landed in the sand. Bob said that he tried looking for the ring with a rake and that he was unable to find the ring. Bob asked if I could help him and I agreed to meet him at the beach to search for the ring. Upon meeting Bob at the beach, he showed me the area where he had lost his ring which was also marked by rake marks in the dry sand. I began a grid search of the area and after about five passes I located the ring and returned it to Bob who was very happy to have his property returned. The ring was very special to Bob because he had given it to himself as a retirement gift after he retired from a job in public service.
