Lost Ring at 8 Mile Beach Galveston, Texas

Lost Ring at 8 Mile Beach while playing with dog Galveston, Texas

I received the following e-mail Sunday from Charlotte.

Sunday 2/29/2016, I lost my ring on 8 Mile Beach. Silver and gold wide band. Offering

We were parked about 3/4 the way down from the access point. Did not venture very far and stayed near the car the whole time. I only went ankle deep in the water. The ring belonged to my boyfriend’s mother who passed away 5 years ago, almost to the day. Please help me find this ring, it is very unique and is a very thick and heavy weight.

Thank you, Charlotte

I met with Charlotte this morning at 8 mile beach in Galveston to search for her lost ring. Upon my arrival at the beach, I immediately became concerned about the condition of the beach, The search area was hard packed (no soft sand). Two days had passed and the beach see’s a considerable amount of foot traffic. The ring was a thick gold and sliver band with emeralds and if lost on the surface, it could have been easily spotted.

Charlotte explained how and where she had been playing with her dog on the beach, We established out primary search area and marked out the area to be searched.

After four hours of searching, and re-working and expanding the search area, the day was closed with negative results.























I was confident at the conclusion of the search, the ring was not on this portion of the beach.

    Tough break John. I’d return at a minus tide and regrid the water area where she rinsed her hands off.

    Thanks Mark,

    It was low, but the wind conditions created some tough surf conditions. The water was cold, so I know she didn’t venture into the water any deeper than her ankles. I worked it pretty darn hard, and took into account the possible variation in the tide conditions.
    It might certainly be worth another look, it could possible even be in 3-4′ of water. She was throwing right handed, ring on right hand, and the water to her right.
    The surf and water condition will need to calm down and warm up a bit to make it an effective effort.

    Thanks for the feed back

    Be safe, John
