About 9:30pm I received a text from Joe.
.While in town visiting Joes parents Joanne and Leon along with other family members, They were having a beach day. Jackie had removed her rings and put them into her phone case for safe keeping. However, Their young nephew took her phone out at some point and the rings had fallen into the sand and vanished! Everyone searched feverishly for them but they were nowhere to be found. They even used a few older metal detectors to no avail. After posting about the loss on a few local pages Joe reached out to me in hopes I may be able to help. I got on the phone with Joe and Jackie via conference call and they gave me as many details as possible and a few photos. Although I had plans to go somewhere I promised them I would go there sometime that night no matter how late it was. I left where I was around 2am and made the hour drive to the beach they were at. Once I arrived there and saw all the marks in the sand from them fanning the sand by hand. (They resembled miniature snow angels.) I knew for sure I was in the right spot. I turned on the machine and began my search. First out of of the sand was Jackie’s wedding band and right next to it was her engagement ring! I sent Joe a photo to let him know the rings had been found. Later on that morning I received the kind of reply I always love to see. One of surprise, Relief and much Joy! The next day after going out on another search I met with Joe’s parents Joanne and Leon on the way home to give them the rings which in turn they met up with Joe later that day to so he could bring them home to Jackie. He told me she was filled with excitement and tears of joy when she learned her rings were coming home to her. I love being able to help people get such meaningful and sentimental items back to them! Another wonderful ending!
