Christmas Eve day started out with a phone call from a young man who lost his cell phone while shovelling snow at his rental house in Port Moody.
He goes on to tell me that he thinks the phone was lost there and wanted me to search the area. I agreed and he sent me the location via google earth and I was on my way.
When I got there I searched the front yard then I searched the back yard and moments later I found his lost phone in around 4 inches of snow. It looked like the phone was in good condition and because it was frozen there was little water.
Then as I was packing up I got a text message about a lost ring and if i could help. I called the young man and he lost his ring the night before when he slipped on ice and his ring went flying. He searched that night but couldn’t find it.
It wasn’t far from were I was located so I headed out to help him. He was still at work and wouldn’t be able to be there to show me the area where he lost his ring so I asked if he could google earth me the location.
Amazing with the technology we have now to help us locate the area, it was a good thing I got there when I did, because after 20 minutes of grid searching I found the ring behind me on the road! It was bent a bit from being run over but it could be fixed. The lucky part for him was that the ring didn’t get stuck in the tread of someones snow tires and driven away.
Like may before him this young man didn’t tell his wife that he lost his ring, I’m sure he didn’t want to be in the doghouse on Christmas day.
I love what I do and I’ll help people every day and any day of the year until I die.
