Lost ring at Camp Pendleton Del Mar Beach Found!

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Megan saw my ad on Craig’s list and contacted me with the sad story of losing her ring the day before at a small beach on Camp Pendleton. She had removed the ring to keep it from getting scratched in the sand. Yup, it ended up in the sand anyway! It was about a 45-60 minute drive each way to the location so I got on my way as soon as I could.

When I arrived, I called Megan and met with her at the little cove next to her rented bungalow.  She showed me where she had been sitting down by the waters’ edge. I turned on my detector and in maybe 10 seconds, it get a good “Gold” signal. Sure enough, it was the ring! I wish all recoveries could be that quick and easy. Megan was quite relieved and overcome with emotion as she hadn’t slept the night before worrying about the ring. I received cheers from the other people on the beach and a big hug from Megan. I guess I should have waited for her to recover  a bit more before taking the photo of her holding it! Believe me, she was one of the happiest people I’ve had the pleasure of helping. Thank you for the reward.
