Lost Ring Pensacola FOUND!

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

I was detecting on the beach when I had a nice man come up and ask if I could help them.  His friend Kelly had dropped his wedding band in neck deep water 5 hrs earlier.  Kelly was so upset that they couldn’t find his ring that he’d had on his finger for 25 years that he went to the room to lay down.  I started my grid search and a couple of his friends called him while I was on my first pass.  I went until I was neck deep and started back towards the shore and heard the unmistakable sound of gold.   It took several scoops since I was so deep and I was being moved around a lot but on the 4th scoop I had it in there. Within ten minutes I had found what had been lost in the Gulf of Mexico for hours.   Needless to say the whole group was amazed and thrilled.  I am so happy that I could put the ring back where it belongs.

    It must have been a little divine intervention that Dave came out on the beach when he did. Found Dave just in time to locate the ring as he was only staying out for a short time. Did not take him very long to find it.
    Just the “right place at the right time” for both of us.
    Thanks Dave for finding Kelly’s ring.

    Really big fan of Ring Finders and Dave Cartee!

    Just want to say thanks to Dave for helping us out. We think my wife’s ring fell off in the ocean. At the time we combed the beach as best as we could. We left Perdido Key with out the ring. When we got back I did some searching online, found Ring Finders, and decided to give Dave a call. He was friendly and very generous with his time. He took a detailed account of our story. That day he was out in search for it but unfortunately was unable to find it. We feel between the tides and storms, the ring was no longer remotely close to where we had been. I wish we would have called him sooner and likely would have had a different outcome. So if you have lost a ring and are in the Pensacola area, give Dave a call ASAP!

    Thanks so much for your time and help in finding my wedding ring which I now understand was your first official find. My wife and I were in Pensacola for a week of fun and beach time with some friends. While swimming out in the gulf in about chest deep water I made the comment to a friend Tim that my wedding ring was really tight on my finger. I was attempting to pull the ring over my knuckle when I dropped the ring in the water. We looked for the ring for some time, but to no avail. Tim went to get some goggles and I gave some strict instructions not to tell Julie, but of course as soon as she saw Tim getting the goggles she began to ask what are y’all looking for. After some more searching and no luck finding the ring I had to confess that I had lost my wedding ring. After several hours I walked over to our RV to check on the dog. While I was gone Tim noticed a man out in the water with a metal detector he approaches the gentleman and explains that a friend had lost my wedding ring earlier in the day. That man was Dave Cartee. Dave tells Tim that he is with RingFinders and that he “WILL find my ring”. Tim shows Dave where we were in the water and tells him that some 4 or 5 hours have passed. Dave goes out into the water, searches and locates my wedding ring. Thanks so very much for taking the time and for being our hero that day. Dave tells us that “every ring has a story and when a ring is lost the story stops it his mission to locate the ring so the story can continue”. My story continues I got my wedding ring back and Julie and I will celebrate 25 years of marriage soon. Thanks again Dave Cartee
