Lost Titanium Wedding Band at Electric Beach Oahu...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began yesterday when I received a text from Joe who hails from Indiana and serves in the Navy on a Guided Missile Destroyer homeported at Pearl Harbor. Joe told me that the day before while at Electric Beach on the west coast of Oahu he had taken off his Titanium Wedding Band and placed it in a beach bag before going into the water along with his other clothes. When he returned he put his clothes on and went to reach inside the bag for his ring and it was gone. Everyone assumed it had to be in the sand near the bag but after a half hour search the ring was no where to be found. After a Google search for “lost ring Oahu” Joe found my contact number and sent a text. I responded and we decided to go to the beach the next day during my lunch break. Since Joe lived in the barracks on base and that’s where I work we decided to go over in my car since I had all the gear. When we arrived at Electric Beach Joe drew a 40 foot by 30 foot grid box in the sand where he believed the ring should be. I started the search and immediately started getting a few good tones but they ended up being a old pull tab and a nickel. Not familiar with Titanium I dug everything. I was about to complete the grid and only had about 4 more feet to go when I got a screaming 13 on the Nox and in one scoop there was Joe’s Titanium Wedding Band. So relieved Joe held back his emotions and just said, “My gosh Thank you so much”. I said “You drew that grid just big enough” “Good job now let’s go back to base.” Aloha to Joe and have fun on your first deployment and be safe!
