Laycee called me 11-3-15 four days after losing her diamond wedding band. It was custom made with 3 diamonds from her grandmother’s ring and the platinum setting was designed by her husband. “Irreplaceable ”
She could only tell me that it was lost sometime during the family annual Halloween party at her house.
After spending the last four days thoroughly searching the house and the backyard. Laycee and her husband Jacob discussed renting a metal detector to check the lawn and the planters. While searching online they came upon our directory of metal detector specialists. Calling me with a few questions about how service, we set up a time that I could meet them at the house the next morning.
I met them early as they both had things to do later in the day. We talked about what activities Laycee had been doing that may have caused the loss of the ring. It had been a busy day preparing for the party and doing hosting. She did remember showing her niece how to do cart wheels on the lawn..
I started on the lawn which was dried up, because we have a drought in So. Calif. with watering restrictions. The grass was sparse and they had searched it several times. The lawn area was only 40ft.x40ft. so it didn’t take much time to grid it with my CTX 3030. Just as I reached the last grid pass I heard a good signal, looking down in plain view, I could see the ring in the dried gray grass.
I went back to the house calling Laycee to the door giving her the good news. She was in shock, telling me that this was the happiest she has been in a long time. It was an emotional time for her, even as I left she was still amazed that it was not lost forever.. I love helping people find missing sentimental keepsakes.
