How to Find a Lost Ring in Harrison River

by

I received an email the other day from a young couple who told me that they had lost a diamond wedding band in Harrison River. I called them and we discussed the search and decided to meet at 8.am the next morning. It was about 1 1/2 hours to get there so it was an early up for me…That’s ok because I love this job!

We met at a location not far from where the ring was lost and I followed them as I have never been to this beach before. When we arrived it was quite and not many people. The young couple showed me the area where they believed the ring was lost and they only had a half hour to wait and see if I could find the ring. But it would take much longer then that for me to find this ring.

They said good bye and they hit the road, I could tell that their hopes were not so high that I would find the ring. I started in on the shallow water where they thought it would most likely be and started my grid search.

 

After approximately two hours in the water I took the search to the dry sand, shortly into the search in the location where the ring was not believe to be…I found it. What a great feeling it is when you look into your scoop and see the sparkles of diamonds and not a pull tab or  bottle cap.

I’m sure not hearing from me for 2 hours made them feel like it wouldn’t be good news when I called so I text them the picture of their ring.

We made arrangements to meet at their place and I delivered the beautiful diamond ring to a very happy young lady and her husband.

    Great find Chris. You have taught me, it is always important to search out of the box.

      Hi Larry, yes its been slow with the recoveries this year…I’ve had a load of searches but no recoveries lately but you can only find what’s there to be found…Happy Hunting, Chris

      • Yep, same here. The weather has been unseasonably cooler and we have experienced more wind… as a result, not nearly as many tourists visiting the beaches, etc.
