Lost ring at Mission Bay Found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

I was digging and sifting a dump site when I get a call for a lost ring at Mission Bay. Kianne had been working out on some equipment in the park when she noticed one of her rings was missing. She had removed two rings and placed them in a pocket before her exercises but now only one ring was still in the pocket. The one missing was a special gift, so, it just HAD to be found!  I loaded up and headed straight down to the bay to meet her.

The search area is built like a playground with a border and wood chips as ground cover. Real easy for a gold ring to get camouflaged in that stuff! All the equipment there is made of steel (figures) so I could only get so close to it with my E-trac. If it was right up next to them, I’d have to use my pin pointer or rake out the chips. Thankfully, I didn’t have to do that. After searching the first two areas that she used with no luck, I found it midway through the third area. Even though Kianne, her friend, and others had visually searched the areas, the ring was not spotted even though it was  partially visible! As soon as I got a “gold” signal, I looked down and could see most of the ring in the bark. A happy and smiling Kianne resulted as you can see. It was nice to meet you Kianne and thank you for the reward.
