Pat S. sent me an email last Saturday Aug 24 saying that he was in Traverse City, MI visiting his mom and went swimming in Long Lake. While playing football his 14K wedding band with 8 diamonds came off his finger and sank into the sandy bottom. After looking for it with no luck he decided to go on line and found “theringfinders” website and found my name. I contacted Pat and told him I could go up Tuesday Aug 27. Pat was visiting from Tennessee and was going back on Sunday that week so he gave me his address and phone number and his moms address and phone number.
We drove the 150 miles one way from Grand Rapids, MI to Traverse City at 7am this morning. When we left Grand Rapids it was raining quite hard and when we arrived it was just sprinkling. We got our equipment on and grabbed our scoops and headed out to the area that Pat had said he lost his ring. I walked along the narrow dock that made up a boundary for the swimming area and about 10 feet from the deepest corner and about 4 feet down a good signal was heard and the first scoop was the ring.
We continued to search the swimming area and found a few coins and then the sky opened up with a torrent of rain and thunder so our successful hunt came to an end. I called Pat and told him I found the ring and would take it over to his mom’s house. He was very happy as was his mother and the picture shows it. Mom had a picture taken with the ring then promptly mailed it to her son pictured after receiving it with a big smile.
