Late last night I got a text message asking for help to find a lost diamond ring at Wreck Beach. I called the young man back and we discussed the search. I told him that I would have to find someone to help him as I didn’t think I could do the search as I have torn the ligaments in my right knee. I started texting a few people that I know who Treasure Hunt the beaches to see if anyone would be interested in doing this search.
My friend Roberto got back to me and said that he would contact a couple of his friends that most likely would be interested in doing the search. When I woke up in the morning I did not see a reply from anyone so I decided to give it a shot myself. I knew it was going to be tough because of the stairs on the way down and back up.
The young man had a good idea where he lost his ring and felt it wouldn’t take long to find it, psychologically it helped me as I knew I wouldn’t spend a lot of time walking the soft sand with my bad knee. When I met the young man down at the beach the first thing he said was everything looks different… I knew he might have a hard time locating the exact area where he lost his ring…it happens a lot, if people don’t make exact references to the location the ring was lost it could take a while.
Fortunately he remembered something that was set up… he called it a microwave tower, we saw a young man near where he remembered losing the ring and he remembered seeing the microwave tower on the beach a few days back and shared the location with us… that was all it took as I found the ring in 10 minutes.
What a beautiful looking ring with 20 diamonds that showed up in my scoop! This was a nice surprise! when you’re not 100% sure of location it was lost in, it could take minutes to many hours to find what you’re looking for!
I love my job and the smiles that come with the recoveries! I also got a kiss on the check for finding it…That tells you how much this ring meant to him! Thanks for reading my blogs, till the next search…
