So July is off to a good start. Around 8pm on July 2, I got a phone call from Lisa; there was a ring lost in her front yard and she needed help finding it. It all started several hours earlier when a young couple had a flat tire on the road just adjacent to her yard. During the course of changing the flat, the couple’s engagement ring became lost. Lisa and her husband helped the couple search for hours for the ring with no luck, the engaged couple went home for the night and Lisa searched the Internet for ring-finding help, where, thanks to The Ring Finders, she found me. My gear was already loaded, so off I went. I was able to get an hour of searching in that night in the area where the couple remembered losing the ring… nothing. I returned to the scene on July 3 around 12:30. I staked out that area for a daytime search and cleared some of the thicker vegetated areas with my Garrett. I was joined by the couple around 1:30 and after a few questions, we did some recreation with a “toss” ring that I had in my kit… this gave us a better target area slightly different from the original search area. The engagement ring was back on the happy fiancee’s finger 30 minutes later.
Wonderful people all around. Thanks to Lisa and her husband for kindly helping out two (at the time) strangers. And I want to wish the happy couple many joyful years together
