Lost ring at Mission Beach Found!

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Sara had been playing with children on the beach and in the water when she realized her engagement ring was missing. I received the call as I was sitting down to Easter dinner with family and friends so I told them it would be an hour or so before I could meet them at the location. When I arrived, I met Sara and Angel and their family and listened to the story of the loss and went about gridding the dry sand, which was just one possible area of where it might be hiding. After searching that area and expanding it out even beyond the boundaries they set, we figured it must be out in the ocean. Being high tide and fairly rough out there, I was only able to search to about knee deep. With no success, I told them that I would return at low tide and continue the search. They were sad and disheartened but that was all I could do at that time, so I reluctantly left to go home and get some sleep. I got up at 3am and made it down to the beach by 3:45am to begin the water search. After about 3 passes, I found the ring in ankle deep water with my killer Excalibur, 15″ WOT, Stealth 720i, combination. I texted them that I had found the ring and would contact them later in the morning after getting some much needed sleep. As soon as I woke up, the phone rang and we made arrangements for them to come pick up the ring. Sara and Angel had already traveled home so Adrian came by with daughter in tow. A few photos, calls, and text messages informed everyone the good news, with relief and smiles all around. Thank you for the reward.
