Tipsico Lake, Holly, Michigan men's wedding ring recovered

  • from Grand Rapids (Michigan, United States)

I got a call from Walt Z. yesterday July 9. He was at his friends house on Tipsico Lake reliving their early days trying to dunk a basketball out of 3 feet of water. While coming up for a dunk Walt felt his ring come off and it was gone under 3 inches of sand before he could react to catching it. After searching for the ring for a while Walt gave up and looked up a ring finding service. Dave Boyer, my Ring Finder partner, and I arrived at the house around 11:30 am and began the search. The water was clear and the bottom was sandy with a hard pack underneath the sand. Dave decided to watch as the area was about 10′ x 10′ so I began a grid search based on where Walt thought the ring might be. Walt was pretty accurate as to where he thought it was and I came up with his ring in a few minutes after the search began. It was raining all morning so we got wet in and out of the water. Walt’s wife, Shellie, has a blog for women and said she was going to post the ring recovery on her blog. So the question remains, did Walt make his slam dunk?
