Rudan has been a beach party at Corona del Mar State Beach, Newport Beach, CA. when he lost his car key in the sand. His friend contacted me asking my for help.

Rudan showed me a 20 ft. square area where he knew the loss occurred. He did tell me that his key was broken and just the small metal piece had fallen in the sand. He said it wasn’t any bigger than a pull tab that he saw in my scoop.

After doing a quick grid, I assumed that it may have fallen through my sand scoop. Starting a second pass over the same area, I slowed my sweeping speed and checking every small signal. Boom! The small key part showed up. 

Big smile from Rudan and relief that he didn’t have to go through the trouble to have his car towed. Generally lost keys in the sand a fairly easy to find with a metal detector. This was not easy. Every search has challenges
