I received a call from Pete last month asking if I could help find his fiancé’s lost engagement ring at the bottom of a farm pond. I said maybe if it wasn’t too deep. He said he thought it was between 3 and 4 feet where she lost it. I said I’ll give it a try.
They have a small boat that they use on this pond and while coming to shore she fell out of the back of the boat. She lost her phone, sunglasses, keys and a 3 carat diamond ring!
The items had been in the water about a week when I got the call and arrived. After getting in with my detector and long handled scoop I found that the bottom was mud and at a slant so it made scooping a little difficult.
The first item recovered was her cell phone. I could feel it with my foot so instead of scooping I just pushed it in the scoop with my foot. The second thing found was her sunglasses. The third thing was the ring and I recovered it by leaning over with my pinpointer and pulling it out with my fingers. After that he didn’t care about the keys anymore!
I’ve been waiting on a picture of the happy couple for the book of smiles but it looks like it might not come so I decided to post without it but I thank him for the generous reward.
