Wedding band recovered in the sand dunes of Grand Haven, Michigan

  • from Grand Rapids (Michigan, United States)

Matthew B. called me last night to see if I could find his wedding band that he lost while climbing on the sand dunes while vacationing in Grand Haven. He was enjoying the dunes with his wife Kristin and their young nephew. While climbing up on one of the paths Mathew had to use his hands to pull himself up on the soft sand. When he stood up to look over Lake Michigan he noticed that his ring was missing. After backtracking and an unsuccessful search, Matthew decided to search Google for metal detecting services. Matthew came across The Ring Finders. He contacted Tom Towsend who was not available but Tom referred him to me (Thank you Tom for the referral) and I said I could meet him the next morning. I contacted my Ring Finder partner, Dave Boyer, and off we went. We were there for about 20 minutes. I went up one path and Dave went up another path and at the top of the dune where Matthew had put his hands to lift himself up, the ring was found. Kristin had decided that if we couldn’t find the ring she was going to throw her ring away on the dunes and they would go buy another matching set. We are happy that the ring was found and Kristin didn’t have to throw hers away. As a footnote to this story, this is where I met my wife 55 years ago to this day. IMG_2361IMG_2364IMG_2365 IMG_2366 IMG_2367
