The worst day turns into diamond and gold day!

  • from Buffalo (New York, United States)

I received a call mid morning on Saturday the 7th of December 2019.  The voicemail was that of a woman who described losing both her wedding band and engagement ring while on evening stroll in the back yard of her Orchard Park, NY home the night before.

During that stroll in a small wooded area Caroline took a fall as her feet got tied up in some vines on the ground. On her way down she felt the rings leave her finger and fly into the brush around her. She called her husband from the house to help in the search.  A few minutes later her husband came out with flashlights and their search began. After some time they had to give up the search.

I was able to meet the couple the next day. I arrived to a grateful but distraught couple.  They were able to give me a probable search area which was mostly a small wooded patch with a small creek nearby.  I changed the large search coil on my AT Pro to smaller one to navigate all the trees and brush… and off I went. After about 30 minutes I had a nice shallow target and was able to find the gold and diamond engagement ring!  The band couldn’t be too far away. After a few short minutes we recovered the wedding band…Success!!!
