Lost Men's Platinum Wedding Ring - Duck – Outer Banks, NC – Found

  • from Kitty Hawk (North Carolina, United States)

I received a text from Asit on Wednesday at around 9pm.  He wanted to inquire about my lost ring service.  I told him to give me a call and he did.  Asit explained that he had been boogie boarding with his daughter’s when he lost his platinum wedding ring.  He didn’t really remember when he lost it but by looking at pictures he assumed that it was around noon.

I explained that high tide yesterday was near the time he lost it and that a good time to look would have been the next low time at 5pm but that time was gone.  The next low tide that I could get there would be around 5 the next day.  I told him that I could come up around 3pm.

When I arrived I fired up the Eq 800 and did a grid search parallel with the water from the dry sand to the water and about a foot deep.  No targets…not even a pop bottle cap.  I decided to do a vertical grid from the dry sand to the water.  On about the 8th pass…BEEP.  A great signal but a 14.  I decided to dig it anyway!  Unknown to me, Asit’s wife Rachna had been filming the find!

Another happy family!

    We are still in disbelief that you found our wedding ring after it was lost in the ocean for more than 24 hours! We can’t thank you enough.
