Lost Ring Dauphin Island - FOUND!!!

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

Nick and his family were visiting from Oklahoma and had a house on the water in Dauphin Island.  When Nick called I was worried because I was going to be out of town on business for several days but after getting some more information I told him that I thought I could still find it for him when I got back on the weekend.  Nick explained to me that he was playing in the Gulf with his nephew in about 3 feet of water when he took off his ring and showed it to his nephew and joked that he had found “treasure”.  Well he quickly stopped joking when his nephew made a grab for it and it dropped out of his hands and into the water.  Nick and his family looked for hours but weren’t able to recover it.  When I finally got there, they had an over under going on how long it would take me to find it, and if I could find it at all.  Nick had great directions and after some machine adjustments to account for a ton of old nails from an old pier, I heard that awesome Gold sound and got it on the first scoop.  Needless to say, Nick and his family were thrilled and impressed.  This is definitely the most impressive men’s band that I have recovered.  Thank you Nick for giving me the chance to find it for you.

    Dave, thanks again for coming all the way from Pensacola (out of your typical range) to find my ring! This ring has nine lives, as I told you I lost it in the snow once before. Still can’t believe you found it in less than 5minutes after it was in the ocean for 4 days. Very impressive! You provide a wonderful service and I have a great story to tell for years. Thanks again!
