Received a call from a gentleman in Ft. Myers (12/8/2018) who reported having recently lost his gold wedding band while washing his dogs in the garden. The soapy water had allowed the ring to slip off his finger. For those of you unfamiliar with Florida grass, its “thick”, very thick. I arrived to find a small 6′ – 8′ circular enclosure that had been staked off to mark the location, limit traffic, and prevent mowing, etc. A quick search of this area with the Minelab CTX3030 running a 17″ coil revealed nothing, at which point the search area was expanded. Within seconds, the audible signal of gold rang true. With the assistance of a pin-pointer, the ring finally became visible having already worked its way through the thatch all the way to the dirt. Well, pictures speak volumes and are often better than a thousand words, so let these and the smiles evidence the relief and happiness within…Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas to you all!
If you’ve lost something metal, I’ll find it – call Mark (239)500-RING.
Florida “thick gras”
Happy customer – Steve
Another happy person relieved to have his wedding band back on his finger.
While vacationing in Florida (from Columbia) with his wife and daughter and kicking around a soccer ball on the beach at Anna Maria Key, Sergio felt his wedding band slip off his finger. Being in the right place at the right time, Sergio was reunited with his ring. Another smile in paradise!
While swimming at Vanderbilt Beach on Sunday 4/22/18, Michele suddenly and unexpectedly felt one of her beautiful 14k gold rings come off her finger. For nearly two hours dozens of people, some from her group and other swimmers nearby, frantically searched the crystal clear water with masks and snorkels, but could not find the lost ring. Despite incoming tide and increasing wind and surf, Michele did the right thing, she made note of several reference points and calmly remained in place while others sought help and arranged for location services. Upon my arrival Michele described the ring and we carefully reviewed reference points, both of which made for a quick and successful recovery. Notwithstanding use of $3k+ in search equipment, I found the ring within seconds, mere inches from where she was and had remained standing. A picture is worth a thousand words…

While watching the beautiful sunset with her husband at Vanderbilt Beach, Kim’s iPhone somehow managed to slip out of her pocket and get lost in the dry sand. They looked on and off for several hours with no luck. During a grid pattern search the phone was located. Another very happy person reunited with her lost item, which just so happened to contain hundreds of priceless and irreplaceable photos of her daughters wedding a week earlier. Good luck and God bless!
COMMENT: 3/28/2018 – Mark found my iPhone after I lost it in the sand at Vanderbilt beach this evening. We were frantically looking for it when we got a call from him letting us know he had it. My grandchildren’s photos, my daughters wedding this past Saturday and many other memories would have been lost ! Thank you! Thank you!
