Lost Gold Wedding Band in Ulua Lagoon Ko Olina...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

Lag4 6-18 Fam
Lag4 6-18 Ring
After spending the morning metal detecting I was waiting for relatives to arrive for a Father’s Day Party. As relatives were arriving I received a call from Ken who lives on Oahu. Ken said that while he was playing volleyball in the water with his family as he went to strike the ball his ring popped off into the water. His daughter saw where it landed but like usual the soft lagoon sand consumed the ring. Ken immediately marked the spot in 3 feet of water with coral and stones they found laying around. He contacted his friend at Four Seasons Resort which put him in contact with Duke from Aloha Security and that’s how he found me. It was 5:30 and the sun was setting fast. Ko Olina is 30+ miles away and I wasn’t sure what traffic was going to be like so I told Ken I’d be on my way but not sure how long it would take. Thankfully traffic was very light and I made it there in 40 minutes. Ken was standing in the water next to the pile of coral & stones. He introduced me to his lovely wife Jackie (whose name you can see inside the ring) and his daughters who were waiting on the beach. I quickly started a circular search pattern working out from the pile. On the third leg about 20 feet from the pile I got my first target. It sounded good and one scoop later I pulled Ken’s ring from the scoop and handed it to him. Hugs, handshakes, thank yous and pictures all make this hobby so rewarding. Aloha to Ken & Jackie!
