I received an email from Kevin asking if I could help his brother in law find his lost wedding band on the beach. We exchange a few emails and set a time to meet. When I arrived on the beach I am greeted by Kevin and his brother in law and the rest of the family. They explain that they have been on the beach for 3 days and not sure what day it was lost. I have them flag an area were they have been sitting over the 3 days. The area was about the size of an ice hockey rink, 3/4 of that was dry sand then the rest was wet sand. I get started working the dry sand down. I’m just about done in the dry sand thinking to myself that it might be down in the wet sand. Just as I’m thinking this I get a great signal and out pops the lost white gold wedding band. As I hand the ring over I can see the overwhelming joy in everyone. Those reactions of returning someones lost item makes it all worth it.
I got a call from Mary Ann this morning(06-02-16) and she asked if I could help her find her 2 rings. One was her engagement ring and the other was her wedding band. She told me that she took them off and put them on her towel so she could put sunscreen on her 9 month old baby. She forgot they were on the towel and she packed up shaking out her towel at the end of the day and went back home. That was Sunday.(5-29-16) She explained the her engagement ring was from 1952 in Platinum and was very sentimental to her. We set a meeting place for her to show me the area of the beach she lost them. As we walked on the beach we talked about how her husband has all but given up on them and was going to open a claim for the insurance. We got to the area and she marked out the area she thinks they were seating. I got to work and after a short hunt I was able to return the rings to a very happy Mary Ann. Seeing the tears of joy in her eyes makes it all worth it!!!
I found a ring in February/2015 while metal detecting my local beach. It had a signature on the inside and I searched for the owner on Facebook/online with no luck. I went to the schools website and emailed them. Within 2 days the school Principal emailed me back and said he will try and find the girl who’s ring it was. After a few months I emailed him back and asked if he had found the girl. No reply back. I forgot about the ring till a few days ago(12/29/2015). I found an alumni page for the school on Facebook and sent them a message. The next day they message me back saying that they have found the girl. This is the message from the girl…..”get out! i may cry. i lost that 9 years ago,i was just thinking about it, because my mom signed the inside of it so should we always be with me. you have no idea how excited i am right now” The ring is now on the way back to the owner.
I received a call from Joe of Demarco Detector sales looking for assistance with a ring recovery for vacationer in Avalon. I spoke to Kevin the owner of the ring who went on to say that he had lost it while in the dry sand the day before. Kevin stated that he and some friends had looked for it but had no luck. Kevin took me to the area he lost his ring. I started to work the area and within a few minutes I had his ring in my scoop. Another successful search and return.
