Ring lost at Coronado Beach Found!

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Gina called me to ask if I was available for a ring search at Coronado yesterday. i said that I was and asked for more information. She said the ring belonged to her boss’s mother-in-law and that she or her boss would have to call me back with details. A few hours later I get the call and an e-mail with a Google map showing the location. It seems that the visiting mother-in-law lost the ring in the dry sand the previous day and had left on a flight back home so we had to just work with directions and a map. Knowing that the beach in question gets hunted very often, I knew I had to hot foot it down there right away or risk losing it to another detectorist so I loaded up the truck, grabbed the wife, brought my 4th hand information, Google treasure map, and headed over. I started at one end of the search area marked on the map and headed toward the other boundary. A few hours later, I’m beyond the search area and getting hungry for dinner. The sun had already set and it was getting a bit nippy. Ok, one more pass……Yes! That sweet sound finally hit my headphones. I called with the good news that night and left a message that I was 99% sure I had found their ring. After contacting Gina the next morning and getting a more detailed description, we confirmed it was THE ring and arranged to meet. Thank you for the reward! It helps keep this service up and running.

    Mark is amazing!!!! I can’t believe he found this ring for me and my boss!
    It was custom built and could have never been replaced.
