Lost Wedding Ring in South St. Augustine intercoastal waters....Found!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)

DSCF2202DSCF2199Monday morning I received a call from Andrew who asked me if I could help him find his wedding ring.  Apparently while digging for shells in the shallows of the intercoastal water way he realized his ring was no longer on his finger where it had been for the last 5 years!  Andrew purchased  a new metal detector and spent a fair amount of time looking for his ring but only found a few sinkers and soda cans.  So he began searching on the computer  for information on how to find a lost ring and he came across www.theringfinders.com !

I agreed to meet Andrew Monday evening at 5 o’clock and as we talked and looked the area over I felt fairly confident his ring could be found.  I spent the next two and a half hours grid searching in the water and came up with a handful of lead sinkers and an assortment of coins and junk.  Then I got a great signal and there in my scoop was a nice hefty man’s gold ring!  I hollered to Andrew and held the ring up in the air for him to see.  I was sort of surprised to see a perplexed look on his face and as he came closer he said, “That’s not my ring.”  As the sun went down I ended my search and reassured Andrew that I would be back later on in the week to look again.

The following Friday I returned and this time I arrived two hours before low tide and set up 4 PVC poles in the shallow water slightly overlapping the area I had previously searched.  I was prepared to search until dark if needed and as I turned on my Dual Field and waded into the water the very first signal turned out to be another gold wedding band!  Only this was Andrew’s ring and as soon as he saw it he said, “That’s it!!”

Thanks so much Andrew for your generous reward and for contacting me to help you!

Have you lost something?

Call ASAP!
