While shelling in the cool and refreshing waters of the Gulf of Mexico off of Sanibel, this newly married couple realized that the husband’s platinum wedding band had gone missing. The couple was extremely distraught as the band holds much sentimental value to them.
After searching extensively on their own, the couple gave me a call the next morning. Within a few hours of the call, my wife and I were each in the water detecting. Another few hours had passed with no success of finding the missing ring–we were all very discouraged. After consulting with the couple again as to the exact area where they thought the ring went missing, my wife and I decided to split up again and return to the water to search.
After several minutes–SUCCESS! The ring was found a few yards outside the search area. My wife and I reunited the couple with the ring. Hugs, tears and many thank you’s were exchanged and the couple can now rest easy knowing the missing ring is back on the husband’s finger where it belongs.
