Lost - Lady's diamond turquoise and men's wedding band, Kill Devil Hills, OBX, NC - FOUND!

  • from Kitty Hawk (North Carolina, United States)

Monday it was raining, with lightning and thunder.  My iPhone rang.  The lady was saying that she had lost her engagement ring on the beach.  I asked her if it was in the water…she said no.  I told her that we had a great chance of finding the ring, but we should try to go out after the storm even if it is dark.  I told her that I would call her in 30 minutes.

I called her and the storm had move off to the south and east.  I met Regina and her friend Susan at the beach access.  As they led me to the beach, I fired up the XP detector.  As we got closer, they said they thought we were at the area…but something was wrong; things looked different after the rain, and they were not 100% sure.

As a beautiful rainbow appeared to the south, Regina gave me a starting point and I began doing sweeps.  When I was about halfway through my second sweep, Regina told me there was a second ring, not as important or expensive.  It was her late husband’s wedding band.  I thought, we must find these.  I said, “So if I find one, I should find the other.”

I was in my third or forth sweep finding nothing but bottle caps when I got a solid sounding target.  I thought it could be the ring but I expected a lower number.  There it was!  In the scoop!  Even though it was getting darker, the diamonds sparkled, and the turquois stone glistened.

I held the stone up to show the ladies who had ventured off to the south.  Regina saw it and immediately began crying as I gave it to her.  One more simple sweep and I dug the other ring out with my toe.  Hugs, tears…another person recovered happy beyond belief!

We found two rings at the end of the rainbow!
