What an adventure! As I was crawling into bed last night, I received a text regarding a lost engagement ring in Midway, Utah at the very popular Ice Castle. Jason found my page while searching for a metal detector to rent and quickly reached out. His good friends (Rachel and Lance) had just got engaged a few hours before while they were here visiting from Florida. The newly engaged couple along with Jason and his wife Lindsey decided to go to the Ice Castle to get some fun pictures and celebrate the engagement. Nearing the end of their time at the Ice Castle, Rachel realized that her brand new diamond engagement ring was missing from her finger. The ring was a beautiful diamond ring with a platinum band. They tried looking for it for a couple hours and at one point had several other people using their flashlights on their phones to comb the area. I can’t imagine the range of emotions going through their minds as they were scheduled to leave the next day (Today) for home. To go from proposing to losing the ring had to be tough!
After talking with Jason, I gathered my gear and made the 40 minute drive to Midway. I arrived around 10:30pm, talked with Rachel and Lance about where they had been. Fortunately the pictures they took helped as those where the moments Rachel took her gloves off to take pictures throughout the night. I started detecting the area as the maintenance crew was setting up. After about 30 minutes, I came across a signal just barely outside the search area. Lance was the only one with me at the time so as I pulled the ring from the snow, he quickly grabbed it and ran back to where Rachel was searching. He dropped to one knee for the 2nd time that day and presented Rachel once again with the ring asking her to marry him! As you can tell by their smiles, it was an awesome way to end the night! Congrats to Rachel and Lance on the engagement & big thanks to Jason for reaching out!
