• from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This recovery started when i  got the text from Melissa about her lost diamond wedding rings in Ala Moana Waikiki area. She lost them the daybefore and so i gathered my gear and  I was able to head out and look the very next morning on a very well known and hunted beach. I had my fair share of concerns but needed to give a thorough search regardless. As i was searching the area in which Melissa gave I started to take notice that i looked in the area and nothing but loose change and bottle caps. So i decided to open up the search area because I’ve been looking for 2 hours and no rings. About a half hour in the search i get a great tone and there in the xtreme scoop is 1 of the 2 missing rings. I then start a circle grid which i started to overlap my previous grid and i get another good tone but very faint. i dug a good 5-6 inches before lo and behold there in the bottom of my scoop is Melissas 2nd ring. I was so happy i ran to my belongings on the beach and noticed that my phone had no battery life. As i’m standing there happy I could hear a voice that said ” Did you find it”? It was the life guard who i talked to earlier about these lost now found rings. His reaction was priceless… NO WAY! With a loud voice. We talked for a little while and then I left the beach with a grateful heart because I know I’ll get to return these beauties. What was thought to be a Gone forever changed! I charged my phone and later that evening my family met up with Melissa and we returned the wedding rings. Happy to help and return these beauties! Another successful recovery.

Biggest thing is to contact me as soon as possible because it increases the chances of me finding and returning your lost rings.

    I was at the beach with my family and took my rings off to reapply sunscreen, then completely forgot about them until we had already packed up & were heading back to the car. I went back to look for them but it was impossible. I thought that they were gone forever. A friend referred me to Kai so I thought it was worth a shot. I emailed him that night & he replied right away. He went back to the beach early the next morning to look. I couldn’t believe that someone would spend hours on his day off trying to help someone that he had never even met! i honestly wasn’t expecting much and didn’t want to get my hopes up, but I couldn’t believe it when he told me he had actually found them! He even drove out with his family in the middle of the night to return my rings. I am so grateful that there are people like Kai who are willing to give of their time and abilities so selflessly just to help others. Mahalo for everything that you do & for finding and returning something so precious!
