While I was out searching for a ring today in Grand Haven, MI, I got a call from Ken L. about his wedding ring he lost while playing with his grandchildren in about 4 to 5 feet of water at the 8th avenue Park in Georgetown, MI. Although it was lost over a month ago I thought I would take a chance to see if I could find it before another detector did. I told Ken and his wife Janet that the chance of finding it would be slim and they should prepare themselves to to put in a Craigslist ad when they get home.
After about an hour of doing a grid search from 3 to 5 feet I decided to call it quits but told the couple I would get a hold of one of my club member friends who detects the park often. I messaged Terry Sparks on Facebook and got an immediate response to call him. I put Ken on the call and Terry said yes indeed he found the ring after Ken identified it with the engravings of his and Janet’s initials. After getting an address they were off to pick up the ring. I love the fact that I can depend on other metal detectors in our network to help out when needed. Thank you again Terry for your honesty and dependability.
By the way I did not recover the ring in Grand Haven due to lack of visibility in the river, I will be back in September.
