On April 17, 2015  I received a call from Dan asking if I could help to find his lost Platinum wedding band. He told me the story of the lost ring.He and his wife had visited a natural pond  here in New Jersey.They were enjoying themselves swimming when Dan pushed off of the wall to swim further out.At that point he felt his ring leave his finger.The remainder of their visit was spent trying to locate the ring to no avail.

Dan returned at a later date with a mask and an underwater flashlight,but he had no success finding the ring. The operator of the pond told Dan that they would be draining the pond in the Spring.

Dan called me and we met at the pond on Sunday,April 26 to search in the now drained pond. After an initial search in the area that Dan  remembered swimming in, we did not locate the ring.I shifted my search area about 15 feet and in 5 minutes  had a good signal on my detector. I brushed away about 2 inches of mud right at the side of the wall and there was his ring!

What a feeling to hand Dan his previously lost ring and see his face light up. This made his day as well as mine .the total search time was 1 hour, time well spent!
