  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Sweet 16… Birthday Gift lost in 4 feet of water!

Mother & Daughter & Ring

It was a sweet 16th birthday diamond ring that her mother bought for her daughter…Two weeks after receiving her gift it was lost in 4 feet of water in Wannuck Lake…This is how the story goes…

It was her brothers birthday and family and friends enjoyed a sunny day at Whonnock Lake in Maple Ridge. Her bother and friends all decided to run into the lake with clothes on…Great to be young!

They all agreed and lined up and at the same time ran into the water…All but Kate who stopped at the waters edge, as she was laughing her cousin ran out and grabbed her and walked her into the water then threw her in!

As she started to swim back to shore she felt her hand hit her leg and felt her ring come off her finger. She stopped and told everyone not to move and that her ring came off.

It was hopeless due to the murky bottom, the ring was lost! She was devastated and so was her mother! Luckily Kate’s mother started to search the internet to find a metal detector and found The Ring Finders Directory.

I received an email and called Susan to discuss the search, she explained how much the ring meant to both of them and was really hoping that I could find it.

After talking to them I found out that a lady who saw them searching the water had offered to search for the ring as she was a diver. They never heard back from the lady and didn’t know if she came back to the lake later to search for the ring.

I started my search in waiters and soon changed to my wetsuit as it was in deeper water then expected. Shortly after changing into the wetsuit my underwater detector took on some water…Bummer! But I had backup in my car.

I started the search and within 15 minutes I had found many bobby pins and one diamond ring with two hearts…
To get a first hand reaction for my video camera I pretended that I needed to film me starting the search.

I got my camera and started to talk about the many bobby pins I had found then I held up the ring…

I have the greatest job in the world!

I love my job!
