Captiva Island — Ring Lost in Gulf Found and Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

We received a call from a gentleman who had lost his gold wedding band while playing football with his son in knee deep water.  After trying to search for the ring themselves with no success they decided to search the internet to find out how to find a lost ring.  The Ring Finders and my contact information pulled up and he gave us a call.

My wife and I made arrangments to meet them at their gulf side vacation cottage later in the afternoon.

Upon our arrival we gathered our metal detecting gear and we headed out to the beach.  He showed us the area where he and his son were throwing the football and the direction he felt the ring fly off.  Within just a few minutes I heard the nice low gold tone on my metal detector.  Sure enough, the ring was in the scoop!

He and his wife were ecstatic to have the ring back and we are happy to be a part of another successful ring recovery!

    Nice work Craig. Searching in calm ocean water is our dream on the east coast here and so glad you were able to find his ring so quickly!! Keep up the good work.
