Getting ready to go to work, I picked up my cell phone to discover that I received a text the night before. I called him to start the normal investigating process. Rich and Janet were on their honeymoon in Myrtle Beach when Rich lost his 14kt. gold wedding band. He was not sure where he lost the treasured ring but had a fairly narrow slot on the beach to search.
I met Rich at the resort 40 minute after our conversation. He walked me out to the area on the beach, explaining that it should be in the dry sand where they were camped out for the day, or in the water out to waist deep at low tide. I knew the tide was not in our favor for a water search. Our goal for the morning was to eliminate the dry sand area, and if need be come back later in the day for a water search. There were a few groups already camped out on the beach. They looked on as Rich explained the area from the previous afternoon. I worked around towels, umbrellas and chairs for 10 minutes when I got a great target signal. I missed it the first time with the sand scoop, but I could see a glint of gold on the edge of the hole. I carefully used the sand scoop to reach in and retrieve his wedding band. I held the scoop out for him to pluck it out. I could easily see stress come off his shoulders as he had his “Precious” back on his finger. Yes, I made a Lord of The Rings pun. Sorry for that.
Rich and Janet, Thank you for the generous donation to our cause, and thank you for trusting The Ring Finders to help reunite you with your precious wedding band. Traveling Mercies back to Connecticut.
