I was contacted by John about finding a gold chain & 14k gold cross that was lost earlier in the week. John was playing flag football when the action got more physical and the chain was ripped off his neck..
After getting permission from the Furman officials I met him at the field in question… I set out cones to establish the boundary’s and set to work searching with my E Trac.
I searched the coned off area with no luck so I started broadening my grid to outside the cones. I found the gold cross 12-04VDI my first pass outside the grid area. I searched for another 20 ft with no luck finding the chain. So knowing chains are hard to find I switched machines to my xp Deus and started searching again and not 5ft away from where I found the cross I found the chain. (forgot to get the vdi for the chain)..
Its all about going outside the box and willing to take a couple more minutes and search outside the grid area. Thanks to John for calling me and to Furman University for letting me search and make John’s day.
So if you have lost something valuable or sentimental give your local ringfinder a call. Thanks for looking.
