I had a scheduled meeting with a reporter this morning down at Woodbine Beach in Toronto.
Tiffy Thompson writes for the Toronto Standard, and thought she would write up a story about TheRingFinders.
After having a great time with Tiffy down at the beach, showing her all about metal detectors and what we do, the interview wrapped up and we parted ways.
Moments later my phone rang, and it was about a ring search.
Spencer told me over the phone that he had been working out this morning in a park close to his home.
He had spent some time working out on the grass, then moved over into a children’s play area when the gym equipment sits in the middle of an area filled with wood chips.
Spencer began doing some chin-ups on one of the bars and noticed that his wedding band was digging into his finger.
He removed the ring, placed it in his short’s pocket and then finished his workout.
As Spencer was leaving the park, he pulled his iPhone from his short’s pocket and then moments later realized the ring was no longer in his shorts. He knew right away it must have come out with the phone and dropped unnoticed.
After searching the general areas he had been in for quite some time with no luck, a quick google search led him to me.
As luck would have it, I was already downtown and made it over to Spencer’s home fifteen minutes later.
We then went to the park and he showed me what had gone on earlier in the day, where he had been and what he had been doing.
I set up my gear and wanted to eliminate a particular grassy area first before moving into the wood chips.
Nothing was found in the grass except for a few beer caps and a quarter.
I then just started to scan around at the edge of the grass where it meets the wood chips and instantly got a great signal. A few wood chips were pushed aside and Spencer’s ring came into view. What a relief, it was starting to get crazy hot out here today.
Glad that this was a fast search, ten minutes or less.
Really happy I could help out today Spencer and would like to thank you for the nice reward on such a quick recovery.
Spencer was a bit camera shy but his ring wasn’t, so I’ve added the ring photo.
