Sam and his wife were spending some time at the beautiful Kai Iwi lakes in the Far North of New Zealand.
His wife had waded out to the edge of the drop off for a swim, and when she returned to the car, realised the ring was missing.
Sam met me on site, and we discussed areas, marking out the search limits and I waded out with the marker floats.
I had just dropped the second float when the ring, an absolute stunner by the way, made itself known just in front of me!
One of the fastest recoveries yet, and inside the initial search area for once …Just.
