Ring lost in Bonita found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

John called me hoping that I could find his lost wedding ring. He was heading out to Brazil to met his wife in a couple of days and didn’t want to have to explain why he wasn’t wearing his wedding ring. He had been playing with his son at a local park and while reaching up high to catch a soccer ball kicked by his son, the ball smacked his hand and popped the ring off and into the grass. He searched for some time without success before he gave me a call. We met at the park and he showed me the search area and demonstrated what happened. I started a grid and expanded the area as the ring was being elusive. I then changed my search direction 90 degrees and after a few passes, I got the sound I was looking for. I looked down and it was in plain site! Hard to believe we both missed it visually, but, the grass it was in was a bit brown which camouflaged a yellow gold ring to the casual naked eye. John can now make his trip without worry. Great meeting you John and thank you for the reward.
