Cell Phone Lost at Santa Monica Beach, CA...Found.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)


I was metal detecting down on the beach, when I received an overloading signal through my head phones. I swept the area a bit with my coil, and saw the edge of something. I reached down, and picked up a Droid cell phone, put it in my bag and continued my detecting. When I got home, I plugged the phone into my charger, and pushed the on switch. The phone came on, and seemed to be working, so I tried to access the phone book in order the find someone who could help me find the owner.

I was able to access the phone book, and started calling numbers, like Mom, Dad, and the other favorites listed. I left messages at all the numbers, and about an hour later received a call from the person’s mom. She told me his name is Jeff, and had lost the phone a couple of days prior, and she would contact him to get in touch with me. It wasn’t too long before Jeff called me, and we arranged to meet at his job, so I could return his phone seeing it was a midway point from where we both lived. I met Jeff and returned the phone, he was busy, so it was a quick return, but happiness the end result.

If you lose your ring or other metal item of value, call as soon as possible. I will work hard to help you find what you thought might never be found again. I search,  Beverly Hills, Hermosa Beach, Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Newport Beach, Rancho Palos Verdes, Redondo Beach, Santa Monica, Seal Beach, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Torrance, Venice Beach, and all parks, yards, gardens, and ponds (to 5 foot depths) in all of Orange County, all of Los Angeles County, and Ventura County.

      Thanks Chris,
      It seems that I have been finding and returning a lot of cell phones this year, and they are very important to us now days.
