Lost Native Silver & Gold Ring at Locarno Beach, Vancouver...Found

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)





It was a hot summer day and I just got home from the beach when I got a call from a young lady who was very upset that she had lost he Native Carved Silver & Gold ring in the ocean. I asked her a few questions and found out that it was lost in high tide and well over my head in water.

I discussed the search and asked if I could meet her at the location so she could describe what happen and show me where she believed the ring was lost. When I got there she pointed out to the float dock and said it was near there where the ring had come off.

Now that I knew the area I checked my tide tool and it said that low tide was at 2am. I told her that I’d be back and search for her ring at night as the tide was going out. When I got there at 11am the tide was still too high. I searched the dry sand for a couple of hours and found some change and the usual amount of garbage. I went back into the water and it was still too deep??? Back to the dry sand and at 2 am still over my head. I checked my phone app for tide tool and it was set for la Jolla California not Vancouver Beaches! The low tide was at 10 am… so I went to my car and slept till 5:30 am got up and worked the tide as it was going out…I found the ring in waste deep water at around 8 am…



Great to be able to send her the picture and tell her that the ring was recovered! I did a little video about the search and unfortunately the young lady was camera shy…

    You definitely got a laugh out of me when you told how you had the tide chart for La Jolla, CA., because I could see myself doing the same thing. Awesome ring, and great tenacity on your part.

      Yes what a bummer! I could have slept a bit more before the search! Good result and that’s all that matters!
