I received a call from a young lady at around 6 pm on a Thursday, she tells me that she had lost a watch and that it could be in a couple of areas on the beach where she was playing volleyball and Frisbee.
I was still at work and working until 10 pm so I explained that I could come out after work and meet her to look for the watch.
She was a little skeptical that I could find her watch at night, I assured her that it didn’t mater if it was day or night, if we waited to long to search for her watch, the beach machine that cleans the beach could scoop it up and it would be lost forever.
I meet Kailun at 11 pm and she was with her parents, she walked me out and showed me the area that the watch could be lost at…I knew that it would take a bit of time to do a grid search so I told her that she could go home and that I would call her in the morning to let her know if I found the watch or not.
When the person doesn’t know where the item came off it becomes a treasure hunt! I know that its out there… but where?
I started my search at the volleyball court but nothing, I then started my grid search in the area she and her friends were playing Frisbee, after almost an complete north/south grid and close to an hour and a half I was only a few more lines from the end of the grid area when I got a good loud signal… It was the watch!
I have to say I was very happy I found the watch as I was getting really tired, I’m not sure if I would’ve been able to do the east/west grid.
I called the young lady and told her the good news the next morning…
I love my job!
