Livy W. and her friend were visiting a local park here from out-of-state, and had been searching for a lost key for an hour with a rented metal detector. They had given up the hunt when they saw me on the opposite hill, out hunting in the afternoon as my usual.
I waved and said jokingly, ‘No need to look any more, I already found everything.’ She then related the story of her lost item, and was elated to hear that I regularly locate lost things for people. As I was very familiar with this park, I was certain I could help.
After a couple minutes of introduction and information gathered, what kind of key, how big it is, what were the circumstances of it becoming lost, etc… I began the grid search on the hillside on which she had playfully rolled, losing her key in the process.
In about 3 minutes I was able to get a definite tell-tale signal on my Equinox, and I motioned for her to come over. ‘I think you’re going to be pleased with this,’ I told her.
She was all smiles and relief when she pulled her key out of the 2-inch long grass. Another successful recovery!
