While relaxing at home Saturday afternoon Matt from Sydney Australia called. He told me that he lost his Platinum wedding band in waist deep water at the Royal Hawaiian Beach two days prior. They had been looking with goggles for many hours. Then they found “The Ring Finders” on a Google search. Its Pro Bowl weekend in Hawaii and Waikiki is packed. I told Matt if he could secure parking I’d be there in 20 minutes. He did and we met at the hotel parking garage entrance. After parking we grabbed the gear and headed down to the beach. Matt’s lovely wife Talitha met us there. We marked the extreme edges of the grid and I went to work. Matt was my beach-side marker and after about three legs of the search Matt noticed another detectorist in the water slowly coming our way. It was Sergey! UGH! He doesn’t return rings. So I had to get rude and put myself on the other extreme end of the grid hopefully between him and the ring. I started walking backwards and wham a screaming platinum target. This had to be Matt’s ring. After two scoops I looked in and there it was a big fat platty. I yelled to Matt got it! Talitha came running over and after seeing the ring gave us both a big hug. Elapsed search time less then 10 minutes. After searching for two days and no other detectorists stumbling across their ring a look of relief and big smiles said it all. Aloha to Matt & Talitha

    My wife and I are still talking about you finding my wedding band!!! Talitha was so disappointed when I’d lost it and after searching with our hands and feet for hours the look of defeat on Talitha’s face was heart breaking. She kept saying it’s not about the monetary value, it’s more about the meaning of us becoming one in the eyes of God. Talitha was so determined to find it and even prayed about it. But we didn’t give up that easy. We saw a lady on the beach with a metal detector and I asked her if it works in the water? She advised there’s a guy who is here ever day around sunset, finds 2-3 rings a day and posts them on the net. We searched high and low for this guy for two days straight and…nothing! After searching the net we found you!

    Talitha is a strong believer that you, Joe, are an angel sent from God. We can’t thank you enough for finding my wedding band, it means the world to us! There was no mucking around with you and to find someone from the net who we barely knew to place the trust in your hands, you are so genuine and so honest…that can only be God’s work. Your services are excellent and with no time at all you found my ring. It’s so nice to be surrounded by good genuine people. We wish you all the success in the world Joe! You have only GOOD karma heading your way. Thank you again for helping us! God bless you my friend! Mahalo!!!
