I received a call from Molly in Southern Shores. She had lost her Platinum Diamond ring on the beach. I told Molly that I was in Kitty Hawk, which is very close, and I could be there in about 20 minutes.
When I arrived, Molly took me to the beach. The family had marked off the spot that they thought the ring had ended up. In the center of the spot was their umbrella and it was bounded by beach chairs.
I fired up the Equinox 800 and began a grid search. The sand was very course and unlevel. I covered the area with no hits. I asked them if they had walked down the beach or gone in the water. They answered that they did not. I decided to sweep the area from the walkway to the chair area…Nothing!
Then I decide to expand the search area outward in the direction of the surf, which was coming up. Bingo! Almost immediately I got a strong signal that was right on top. I reached down with my hand and brushed the sand away. Diamonds shown in the bright OBX sunlight and I recognized the ring from the picture that Molly had shown me. Congratulations Molly and family for finding your exquisite ring.
