Lost Diamond Ring at Wreck Beach, Vancouver...Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

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…

      To be honest I wasn’t going to do the search because of my knee but I couldn’t find someone to do in short notice so I had to help! After the hike up the hill to my truck my knee was very sore but his smile made it worth it…

  2. Chris, great find and great determination…. What about the torn ligaments? How did that happen?

      Thanks! I stepped in a pothole back in January and twisted my knee and it got worst every day…Can’t wait to walk again with no pain!

      Yes my wife said the same thing a metal detecting crutch…I do use a walking cane and that helped me get back up the hill after the search…Thanks for your comment!
