Lost ring at Mission Bay beach Found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

I was driving over to pick up my sister, niece, and grand niece to take them to the airport when I get a call from Alex asking for help finding her husband Luke’s wedding ring. Seems it slipped off his finger at the beach while he was shaking out a towel. They noticed it missing right away and hadn’t left the spot so I figured this would be a quick and easy recovery. Being a bit short on time, I hot footed it back home, grabbed the detector, and headed over to their location. I was only able to search for 1/2 hour before I had to leave and make my airport run. I figured that would still be plenty of time….ha….it never works out that way! That ring wasn’t about to give up that easily. I left and promised to be back in about an hour and a half or so. When I came back, they were still waiting there patiently and I resumed my search. I crossed my previous pattern and expanded it a bit but still no ring. I then started searching across the other side of the sidewalk and even up into the ice plant. Did I mention that all the concrete was steel reinforced? It became pin pointer time along the edge of the concrete where it met the sand. Still no ring but I found an Ike dollar coin! My first in years. I then got back on the big detector again and expanded the search area in the dry sand. Made just one more pass to the west and “bingo” a nice big shallow hit. Sure enough, it was his ring. A happier couple you will never see….even though it was getting dark! Nice to meet you two and thank you for the reward.

    So you’re the one! A couple of people mentioned someone on the east coast who refered them to me but they were unsure of the name. Thank you!
