Albert and Martha had a nice day with their kids at Doheny State Beach until they returned to their car. That was when Martha remembered earlier in the day, she had taken off her platinum and diamond wedding rings off to put on sunscreen. Getting distracted taking care of two youngsters she forgot to put the rings in a safer place. They were sure the rings were in the sand near where they had been sitting.
Albert went to his cell phone, Google searching ” How to find a ring in the sand.” That was how he found my information on TheRingFinders website. After his call to me, I assured him that I could find the rings if they could stay at the location.
We met on the beach a half hour later. Then it was a few minutes of swinging my metal detector in a 10’x 10′ area till the two beautiful platinum rings were found.
I wish all searches were this easy. Martha felt embarrassed that she was so careless, so I told her how many times people don’t realize they lose something till they get home. The success of this search was because Martha realized she lost the rings before too much time had passed and her husband used his smartphone to find a ringfinder.
Needless to say they were very happy to have the rings back where they belong. It was a pleasure to help them.
