Lost Texas A&M Class Ring Galveston, Texas (Recovered)

Lost Texas A&M Class Ring in Isla Del Sol boat channel Galveston, Texas (Recovered)

I received a call yesterday from Alfonso regarding his lost Texas A&M class ring. Alfonso said he was visiting some friends in the Isla Del Sol area of Galveston Island when he lost his ring. Alfonso said he hand his friends had been throwing spent crawfish shells into the boat channel behind his friends home.

Alfonso said he did not see the ring come of his hand, but knew he had it on, because his ring had been an item of discussion during the crawfish dinner. Alfonso said after cleaning up and throwing the shells into the channel he realized his class ring was missing.

After speaking with Alfonso he sent me a few photographs of the channel and bulk head behind the house. We made agreements to met today and search for his missing ring.

Alfonso was specific on the location where he believed the ring would have landed in the water, but after nearly an hour with no results we expanded the search area. After resetting out grid another 10 feet, the ring was recovered within a relatively short time.

I had set up one of my GoPro’s to record the recovery while I was in the water, but unfortunately the recovery took several hours and the camera couldn’t hang.

As with most of the boat channel’s in the Galveston area, there is a large amount of debris, some or most related to hurricane IKE which covered island with more than 10 foot of water.

The visibility was minimal (ZERO) and all targets were sifted blindly by hand, but make no mistake, when you grab a ring, you know it.
