My service here in Vancouver BC called Finders helps people find their lost jewellery at the beaches, parks, lakes, yards & ski resorts. I got a call a few years ago and a man told me he lost his native gold wedding band in a lake about an hour and a half drive from my home.
He said on the day that he lost his ring he was playing with his grandchild when it came off. Trying to search for the ring in around 4 feet of water was impossible due to the muddy bottom. That was it he thought to himself, the ring is gone.
A few days after he lost the ring him and wife spent the day at the beach in Vancouver, as they walked by the lifeguard tower they saw a flyer for my service lost jewellery.com
They called me that day and told me the story of how he lost his ring, I agreed to meet the next day and search for the it. When I arrived at the lake I met the couple and they showed me the area the ring came off.
I told them if they wanted they could come back in a few hours or I’d call them when I found the ring as I knew this search could take a while to complete. They said that they were off for breakfast and that they’d bring me some coffee and a muffin.
I began my grid search in chest deep water for over two hour and after finding lots of garbage, I got a signal like the many ones before but this time when I looked into the long handled sand scoop I saw the color of gold.
I called and told them the good news and they were there in a few minutes with coffee and a apple pie. They both were amazed that I found it as they thought it was lostforever. After a happy ending and a happy couple I was on my way home.
I enjoy the water hunts as they are fun but they are harder to do as its tough to grid search in water.
I love my job!
Thanks for reading my story.
