I received a call from Chris that he lost his wedding ring in Bridgehampton at a wedding reception. He asked if I could help and said I would be out the  next mourning. As usual traffic was bad going to the Hamptons, I made it and meet Chris at the Topping Rose House where the reception was held on Saturday.  I was hoping the grass wasn’t cut as a ring could get damaged by the lawn mower. It wasn’t.

Chris showed me a photo taken at the reception showing me the ring. he stated that later is when he didn’t have it on his finger. I asked where he was sitting and a few other questions.  I then got me detector and started searching.  It take long to find the ring in the grass. Looking down to where the ring was, could not see it, I used my pin pointer to located a closer spot and using my fingers I located it. I showed it to Chris and A big smile came across his face and with a shock in his voice he yells you found it.

Saturday mourning received text that a  ring was lost Friday night.  It is a 3 hour drive and I told Ima That I would be out early afternoon.

When I got there, they said it an ear ring, which was either lost in the parking lot or at the beach.  While they were checking out of there room I searched the parking lot with no success.  We then when down to the beach and I searched from the entrance to the area that they said they were sitting.  I started a search of the area that they were sitting . It was difficult because the chairs and umbrellas had been taken down from the night before.  Ima remembered seeing some orange sand. after doing a visual search I spotted some and started a search.  after a few minutes I got a signal that was the same as the other ear ring. A little sand digging and there it was, after a few shanks to rid the sand from the ear ring I handed it to Ima. The photo says it all.

Quogue Lost Wedding Ring in Snow

I was in Hampton Bays just finished finding an I-Phone. I was checking email and messages and saw a text from Jacqueline. She said that last night while taking out the garbage that her ring came off and was in the snow.  I go to directions to the house and headed over there.  While in route I called her and said was on my way, she said that wasn’t home but working in the city.  She told the area that the ring was lost in and that I should call if there was a problem.

There was a lot of snow and ice by the garbage cans as well as a lot of bushes. I searched the area with no luck. I then started in the bushes and they were over grown a little so It was hard getting the detector head into them. After moving the branches in different direction I finally got a signal like ring. on my hands and knees I dug out the ring.  Back at the car I called Jacqueline and told her I found the ring. She said that she would not be out to the house till the weekend.  We agreed to hide the ring in a spot that she could find easily.
