Fort Myers Beach — Wedding Band Lost in Gulf Waters Found & Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)
I lost my platinum wedding band in the ocean at Ft. Myers beach on February 17, 2019. We were throwing a football in the water and I didn’t even realize that the ring had slipped off my finger and frankly, I didn’t know if it was in the water or on the beach and I was crushed after looking and calling everyplace we had been that entire day.
I ran across Craig Ostendorf on the internet while attempting to rent a metal detector on February 19th.
Craig and his wife met me out on the beach that afternoon. Craig told me that he felt the chances of finding my ring were good, though I thought finding that ring in that big ocean after two days was impossible. Long story short Craig and his wife marched out into the surf with their equipment to give it a shot. 30 minutes later they found my ring and I cannot Express the relief and gratitude that I feel for what Craig and his beautiful wife did for me.
I would highly recommend these angels for what they did for me, and they accepted a tip from me but didn’t charge for their services.
I thank you both from the bottom of my heart and I’ll sleep better tonight with my wedding band back on my finger.
Please see the photo of my ring, and again thank you both for what you did for me.

    I still can’t believe you found my ring. My friends and family and myself are still shocked.

    I’m looking at my wedding band now and I just wanted to thank you again.
