On my way home from dinner with the misses I got a call from Jim Wren, TRF North Myrtle Beach. He had just gotten a call from Chris who had just lost his cobalt wedding band in Myrtle Beach. Getting the contact info from Jim, I called Chris back. I told Chris I would be there in 30 minutes.
I met Chris on the beach in front of the resort where they were staying. Chris was getting ready to go to dinner with his lovely bride of 8 years. He showed me the place on the beach where they were sitting and then pointed to a place in the surf line where he said he took a spill while exiting the water after swimming. He told me either place was a possibility as he was not sure when the ring came off. I told Chris to go to dinner and I would go to work and that I would contact him If I had good news. I quickly eliminated the 20′ x 30′ area where they were sitting. I moved to the edge of the surf line and started a 100′ line parallel to the water. I noticed a 1 foot deep trough just inside the water’s edge and figured that is where he fell and that is where I will find the ring. Sure enough the second pass in the trough, in knee deep water, gave me a great signal on my Excalibur II detector. BINGO! I sent Chris a message on his phone with a picture. “Looks Like This?” He called me back immediately to confirm that it was his wedding band. He and Jena were driving to dinner, but turned around to retrieve their prized wedding band. This would be a great ending to a successful 2 ring search day.
Chris and Jena thank you for the reward. 15% will be donated to The Children’s Shrine Hospital “Road Runners” Transportation Team.
