I got a call a little after 11am today from Jamil from NY asking if I could help find his wife’s two rings in the sand. This was another lost ring call from Myrtle Beach so I called Matt Fry, the TRF for Myrtle Beach. Matt and I discussed the situation and he told me to go ahead and take the call. I called Jamil back and let him know I was on my way.
I met Jamil and his wife, Khatira on the beach with their 2 small children. Khatira told me she had taken her rings off and placed them in her lap, forgot them and stood up causing her rings to fly into the soft sand. After about 10 mins of searching, getting the lifeguard to move an umbrella and chairs I got the first tone and scooped up her engagement ring. A few more passes with the detector and I got the second tone and scooped up her wedding band. A very happy and relieved couple!
Jamil and Khatira, thank you for trusting me to find your lost treasure and for the very generous gift. Have a great time with the rest of your vacation and a safe trip back home.
