Platinum wedding band back on finger where it belongs!

Gavin McGuire contacted me by email requesting my help to find his wedding band that was missing from the day before while boating and swimming in the warm Gulf waters of Sanibel Island.  As soon as I received his email, we made contact by phone.

Gavin explained that he had the ring while on the boat, but had noticed later while in the water that the ring was missing from his hand.  As soon as he realized the ring was missing, he recruited family, friends and a passer-by with a metal detector to help him look for it.  After searching for about two hours without any success, they had to give up due to the late hour of the day.  Gavin returned home and found the ring finders website.

After talking with Gavin on the phone, my wife and I met him at the location on the beach a few hours later.  We began our search.  There were boats in the area so covering the entire search area became difficult.  After about three hours of looking and waiting for boats to leave, SUCCESS!  We found Gavin’s ring!

Hugs and smiles were exchanged and we all could go home happy!
