July 20th 2013 Roy lost a ring in Elk Lake that was a very special ring because it was custom made from his late mothers jewelry.  When Roy was on an air mattress in July of 2013 he felt and watched his ring fall off and sink to the bottom. He jumped off and figured that it was about 10 feet deep.

Roy hired a diver the next day,  who spent 1 hour and 20 minutes searching, but no luck.

Fourteen months later I was diving with my Hookah and an under water detector looking for another lost ring, when under 6 inches of silt found this ring.

I knew this was a very special ring so I had to try to find the owner.

I searched the internet and found Roy’s ad and texted him, ” I think I have found your ring I said”.  A few minutes later my phone rang, the man at the other end gave me a description of the ring in my hand and we arranged to meet later that day.

Roy appeared to be in shock but very happy, fourteen months later his lost ring was recovered and returned to him.

I love my job.
