Lost wedding ring found

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find started out in the afternoon when I got a call from Bre telling me that she lost her wedding ring at the beach. I got home and talked to my wife about the unpleasant lost. She encouraged me to go out to the other side of the island to help Bre and see if I can find this loss Ring. I packed up my truck with my equipment and head out to the west side. While on my way to Maili Beach I’m in traffic and I ended up getting rear ended.  Bre is waiting for me and I need to update her on my situation. When I called to explain to Bre she quickly empathized with me and said maybe we should set this up for another day. I immediately deferred said I am halfway there and the sun is setting soon so it will be best if I get out there as soon as possible and give it a try. I arrive to the beach and was met by Bre and her beautiful family. She explains to me the area of which she was swimming with her family two days prior when she lost the ring. I gathered my gear and turned on the Equinox 800.  as I started to enter the water I noticed there were a lot of targets and the place I was looking in was at the end of a river mouth runoff.  The amount of trash and targets i found filled my pockets. After searching for a couple hours I realized that maybe I need to come back when the water visibility gets better as it’s murky and cloudy. As I start to head in, I hear a faint sound and thought to myself, should I dig it or just wait until another time? I decided to give it a dig and after three big scoops there in the bottom of my extreme scoop is a beautiful Hawaiian heirloom diamond wedding ring. I look up to notice Bre and the kids sitting on the shoreline. I approach Bre with a few questions concerning the ring. But, I noticed she doesn’t have her mask. Because when she came down to meet me at the beach i noticed it in her hand. And now no mask! I asked her… where’s your mask and She told me a young gentleman named Keone young came up to her while I was searching and asked if he could borrow it so he could look for his keys that he lost while surfing and when he finds it he’ll come back and help her take a look for her loss wedding ring. Well, after hearing that story I noticed she was on a FaceTime call with her sister. I asked her sister explain to me what the ring looks like and she along with Bre describe the ring that I found. As the FaceTime call is transpiring I tell the family well there’s no need for me to ask anymore questions because… and that’s when I pulled out my hand and in my finger tips I held the once lost ring and said “ it was lost… but now found!” And they both were excited and shocked. I gave the ring back to Bre and said it’s time for me to rinse off. I head over to the showers and start to rinse off my equipment when I get approached by a young gentleman with a longboard. He asked me did you find it? The ring! I smiled and pulled out the ring and let him know it was lost and now found. With a big smile on his face holding his hands in the air was a mask and a string with a key! This  was Keone Young the surfer Bre told me about lending her mask to and here he is just as excited as we are because he found his key. Bre, Keone and myself all grateful and sharing  stories filled with Aloha and as we rinse off the sun started to set behind us which gave a warm feeling of bliss. We all agree that this day was filled with blessings and to find the things that was lost means so much to us. Another great recovery and another happy family!
