Lost ring set Oceanside

from Carlsbad (California, United States)

I got a call for a ring set lost yesterday at the beach but they didnt know where. I went stright down to meet them and check what I could. She thought might have come off digin sand crabs with grandkids. After gridin the wet with nothing found we moved up in the masses of people. Not there either. Then the son says I think we might have been where those people are packing up. Ok lets check it.

2 or 3 passes I get one of the two lost so I know the other is close by.  Yep, aprox 4/6′ away and there is number two. Another happy family here on vacation no with big smiles. 

Lost Ring Swimming, Solana Beach

from Carlsbad (California, United States)

Got a call fron Dave asking if I could recover his ring in about waist deep water. I looked at the tide book and saw tide was going down so I was on the way to meet him in 30 min.

After finding parking I was early so I went where I was told and started my grid. Hair pin, hair pin and another hair pin. Damn.  Then I see him wave from shore so I knew must be him.

He tells me his wife thinks he was more to the left so I keep gridin that way.  Bang, very loud beep. Oh yea this is it. As I push the scoop in and go to pull it my handle breaks, carbon fiber.

I did everything I could to scoop it but couldnt get it. Went to my truck and did a quick repair. Back in that same hole used my feet to move some sand and two sccop later, there is his gold ring. It had gone really deep as sand was real soft. Aprox 18″ down.

Thanks Dave for the reward and a new friend has been made. Smiles all over and the life gaurds were happy we were able to help him.

Lost Ring in Ocean, Carlsbad

from Carlsbad (California, United States)

Got a lost ring call in the middle of saying goodby to a dear friend. Can u come right now? No but I will be down in 1 1/2 hrs. One hr later, can u come now ?  So we were almost done so I said I would be there in 20 min.

I get to an over crowded beach and find parking, grab the PI and water scoop and head over.  I am met half way  by a very sad man. Its in the water, do you think there’s a chance of finding it ? Hell yes knee deep, no problem…

As I start my search there are a ton of people coming over to watch. He shows me where he was, or thinks he was.  After about 10 min Im looking at tide line and I start working into the ankle deep area and low and behold, bang..  I scoop it and walk outa the water, turn to him and ask, Whats it look like… he he. ( YEP ) here you go.

Cheers from the crowd make it really cool, as we walk thru to our cars  I hear, Great Job “RingFinder ”

I LOVE THIS FEELING.

 

Lost Ring Del Mar Calif.

Just after my late shower I see a voice mail,  a young lady asking if I could help them find a ring in the sand. 6 or more people on hand and knee’s for hours could not find it.  Took a bit for us to talk and I was on my way.

As I get my gear out and head to 18 th st I see three ladies waiting. Few min talk and we are walking down to area of loss.  Ok its somewhere in this 20 x20 with one lady to my right sayin Like right here.   I turn on the detector and say ok 5 min.  I started at the far side of where she said and 30 sec, bam.

They all just look as I scoop, miss and scoop again and shake.  Yep there is the ring.  Not always this fast but sure made TheRingFinders.com  look good.
