Last week, I had a call from Michael from Toronto about his lost platinum wedding band.
Michael told me that he had spent the weekend visiting with friends up at a cottage on Peninsula Lake near Huntsville ,Ontario.
While at the cottage, everyone had gone in the water of Peninsula lake to cool off and play around a little bit, when Michael noticed that his platinum wedding band had come off his finger in about three feet of water.
After searching for the lost ring for quite some time on the lake’s soft, mucky, bottom, Michael and his friends had give up the search. The ring had probably been stepped on and pushed even deeper into the lakebed and completely out of view.
When Michael finished telling me the story, I figured it would be a good search for my scuba diving friends Brad and Ryan, the father son team, as they live really close to this lake, however they would probably not need to dive for this one but would bring their gear just in case.
Brad and Ryan made it Peninsula Lake on Sunday, September 16, 2012 after getting all the info from Michael, and met with Michael’s friends up at the cottage. Michael was not able to make it up there for the search.
Brad got into the water minus the scuba gear, and spent three and a half hours trying to locate the ring in the mucky bottom. After changing underwater detectors, and cranking the White’s Dual Field gain to full , Brad finally got a nice, solid hit.
Now elbow deep in the soft muck and with his trusty Vibra Probe, Brad now held Michael’s lost ring in his hand.
After the ring was located, there was lots of celebrating over the phone with Michael and his happy wife.
The ring was returned to Michael in Toronto yesterday by his friends and a picture was sent to me tonight.
We are all really happy you have your ring back Michael..!!!
Thank you for the generous reward for Brad and Ryan. I know it was greatly appreciated.
Great job once again Brad and Ryan.
I’m going to start calling you guys the “Dream Team”
Thanks guys for helping me out with this one.!!
Take care everyone,
