Lost - iPhone - Kill Devil Hills, Outer Banks (OBX), NC - FOUND !!!

  • from Kitty Hawk (North Carolina, United States)

I missed a call from Gary at about 4:30 pm.  But he left a message that said that his son had lost his iPhone on the beach.  After a bout of phone-tag I finally reached him and headed down to Kill Devil Hills.

When I arrived, I met Brian, the 19-year-old college student who had lost his phone.  Of course I realized how important this was…friends, pictures, class information…it was all on that iPhone!

As we walked down to the beach, Brian pointed out a lifeguard stand that was about 100 yards away.  He said he thought he had lost it between where we were and the lifeguard stand.  Lots of sand!  I asked him when he lost it and he replied about one in the morning.  Someone, including another detector, could have found it!

He thought he had lost it close to the stand, so I didn’t fire up the Deus 2 until I got about 50 yards away.  I got a few hits as I searched south to the stand, but they didn’t pan out and I didn’t even bring my scoop because I didn’t want to damage the phone.

Brian said he had walked from the stand in an arch, so I followed his lead as I started back north on the beach.  I got a hit, loud and identical to my test on my

iPhone.  It was Brian’s iPhone!!!

Friends, images, class information all found on the beach!  Dad and Son happy!!!!!
