XXXXX (name to be updated) is in town for a couple weeks, visiting his parents here at their lake house.
Yesterday, in the private swim area, he was pulling a raft back to shore, walking backwards, stumbled and lost his ring in the process.
He and several of his friends tried finding it, but had no success.
I was out detecting in this lake today and just happen to launch from this site due to the public site being closed temporarily. I was wading with my kayak in tow and just happen to pass by his friends that were just hanging out in a docked pontoon nearby. One of the friends asked if that was a metal detector i had and if i could find rings. I said certainly and they went to get XXXXX, who came over and displayed how and where he lost it.
After a few minutes of searching and finding a couple pull tabs, a couple clad coins, I got a loud signal that sounded like a shallow ring sized object. I scooped the target and could see the “black” Star Wars ring in the scoop.
XXXXX was ecstatic when I said “here it is”. His friends were amazed and onlookers were also excited that it was found.
