In September of this year, I received a telephone call from an individual asking if I thought I might locate a lost engagement and wedding band, lost in the fall of 2014.  I believe I commented that if it is still there, I will find it.

Upon arrival on 9/23/19,  I was given a tour of where they might be lost when raking leaves and other yard work.  I believe the first day I was there 7.5 hours.  I had to limit searching the second day and onward in about 4 hour increments.  I was then shown a bank where 5 years of leaves and brush had been deposited.  This was the second possible hot spot.  That bank was steep enough that I needed to wear crampons.  At the bottom was a tree, about 24 inches in diameter that was there when they were lost.  It had to go.  So I brought a chainsaw and cut it into sections where I could move them with a digging iron.  That search was futile.  On to several other possibilities.  Last week I decided to go back to another section of bank, adjacent to the first.  This involved cutting another tree that was 1/2 way down the bank.  Anyway, as I was about to leave on 12/10/19, having searched with my CTX3030 in the rain most of the morning, I found it after a ten week search.  Owner was thrilled and speechless.  Going back when the weather cooperates to find the gold band.

This was a difficult recovery but persistence reunited this beautiful ring, with all its memories, back to the owner.
