Ring Found at Gravel Lake, MI

  • from Holland (Michigan, United States)

Received an email from Karen stating that her son’s girlfriend was standing on the dock and after a lovers’ spat she threw gifts from him into the lake — a small gold ring, a thin gold necklace and a pendant.  Her friend was taking a video at the time and recorded the whole thing.  Gregg Larabel, my fellow ringfinder and I jumped in the car and headed out for the search.  We met Karen at the lake and watched the video on her phone, but with the small screen and the distance from the camera we could not see any items flying thru the air.  After about an hour searching I did find the ring, but not the other two items.  As we left we asked Karen to email us that video so we could watch it on bigger screens.  When we did, we saw a small splash in the water and it appeared to be out further than we had searched.  We also got a better idea of the direction of that splash by pinpointing landmarks on the far shore.  Later this week we are going back with the new info to try to find the other two items.  The good news is the couple made up, and Karen would like to surprise them with all three items.   This is a picture of Karen.
