Received a call from John at 6:00am that his wife had lost 5 rings on the beach in Leland,Mi. at 6:00 pm the night before. Met up with John and his wife an hour later to start the search. John’s wife had put the 5 rings on a lawn chair when she went into the water. She went to leave and she had forgot about the rings and folded up the chair to leave. They took me to the area they thought they were set up at. Which was in the area where people like to have bonfires on the beach. Luckily I have the CTX3030 and can sort through the junk pretty easily. About 5 feet away I got multiple good signals in the same 10 inch area. We found 4 of the 5 rings in the 10 inch circle. I continued to search for the last ring but could not find it. John and his wife had to leave and I continued the search for 2 more hours. I searched the complete beach area, parking lot and road to the house they were staying at. I tried different coils and directions put the detector in all metal mode and dug every iffy/crappy signal. I’m confident the last ring is not on the beach. I think because it is Turquoise and silver someone saw it and picked it up. We found the most important ring the Platinum with a nice diamond they were happy with finding the 4 rings.
I was very happy to help out and appreciate the reward.
I got a call from Juan because his wife Heather had lost her wedding ring in the yard while installing wood fencing. Talked to heather to get a primary area to start the grid search. The primary area was 10 feet wide by 50 feet long. Started the grid search and 5 minutes in got a good solid shallow signal looked down and found the ring in the grass. Heather stated she and Juan had been over the area multiple times and did not see the ring. I was glad to help out and like the short easy hunts.
My wife showed me a Facebook post on a lost ring in a local lake.
I called Steve and told him I could help and to take the post down before one of the local pirates goes to find the ring and not give it back. Met Steve 1/2 hour later to look for the ring. Search time was about 45 minutes and the ring was found in neck deep water.
I got an email from a lady named Charity stating she lost her white gold ring with diamonds. She was brushing snow of her vehicle when leaving work at 12:30 am. She had searched for the ring for an hour that night. Then the next day till she had to go inside to warm back up. I was on location an hour after getting the email. It was 9 degrees outside and found the ring about 8 feet from where she thought it was. The ring was packed into snow about 3 inched deep in the parking lot. The ring needed to be found before the snowplows got to it. Did not have a chance for a picture due to her being on duty at work. I was very happy to help in the recovery.
