Lost ring Found at Mission Beach

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

I received a call from Annie on Sunday evening about a lost ring. She had been at Mission Beach earlier in the day and had been playing in the surf with a nerf football. She went for a reception and ended up with a fumble as her ring that was given to her by her mother-in-law flew off into waist deep water. As in most cases, the search was in vain as rings can disappear easily in the surf and shifting sands. I told her that I would go to the site the next afternoon to take advantage of a low tide. She gave me a good description of the area since she had to work the next day. I arrived a couple hours before low tide and started a grid. About an hour or so later I got a nice low growl in my headphones indicating a target in the gold range. One big scoop with my Stealth 720i in ankle deep water and I had the prize in the basket. Since I live right on her way home from work, she and her husband stopped by the house and had a happy reunion with the ring. It was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you for the reward.

    Way to go Mark, sometimes those searches can be very difficult if the person isn’t there to show you the exact location. You saved her day!

  3. Nice recovery! I’m sure seeing their smiles of gratitude was very rewarding. Great job!
