Craig was doing roofing repairs for a client in Long Beach, CA. when his platinum/ gold wedding band came of his finger. It rolled quickly down the roof just like a wheel. When he came off the roof he couldn’t find it in the 6 foot area between the house and the fence. The other option was the neighbor’s yard which was a heavily covered landscaping that had a lot of plants and dried leaves. After an hour of searching he decided to call for the help of someone with a metal detector. After a google search he found my contact information.
When I talked to Craig on the phone he told me the basic story. He would be to meet me with permission to search the neighbor’s yard. Less than an hour later I met him and he went over the events that led to the loss of his ring. Then we walked into the location directly in front of where he had been working on the roof next door. It was definitely a place where a ring could be hiding. A perfect place to use a metal detector and/ or hand held pinpointer.
As I was adjusting the settings on my metal detector and beginning the swing my detector, Craig yelled, ” there it is”.
The whole planter was covered with dry leaves, but the ring actually landed in the only clear spot, on the edge of the cement patio. It had flown more 20 ft. off the edge of the roof.
This has happened more than a half a dozen times, when the person or someone else spots the lost item while I’m doing a search grid with my detector. What is most important is Craig has his most sentimental wedding ring back where it belongs. It was a pleasure to meet Craig and help him search for his ring.
