Wedding Ring Lost at Venice Beach, CA...Recovery Maybe Providential?

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call from Kyla today asking if I could help her find a wedding ring. I told her that I would be glad to help her. I asked where she was, and she told me Venice Beach. I was out metal detecting close by, and told her I could be there in just minutes.

I met Kyla and her husband Andrew when I got there a very short time after the call, they showed me where the ring had been lost. It was her husbands ring that had been lost in the sand,  I looked in the area, and there was a lady with a toy metal detector searching the sand trying to help them, and I could see that she had looked in the area of the loss because the sand was completely smoothed out. It took all but about 3 minutes to find what I could tell had been searched for, for quite a while from the amount of smoothed out sand. I use the best equipment available to help the people I search for, and it does make a difference.

After handing Andrew his ring, and experiencing their joy, I asked them how long they had been married, and they told me 2 weeks. They were on their honeymoon from New Zealand, and they were due at the airport in 1 1/2 hours. I got to thinking, I was right where they needed me to be so they did not have to leave their token of love behind to go home, providence, maybe? I just so enjoy this service!

Andrew explains what the loss and recovery meant to him:

Thanks for your help at Venice re the lost wedding ring in the sand at the outdoor Gym.

” While on my Honeymoon in Santa Monica I lost my wedding ring at Venice Beach. A young lady saw me and my wife Kyla searching in the sand and advised there are “guys with metal detectors” walking the beach who could find it?

Immediately we jumped on google and did a search. We called Steve and explained the situation. He was with us in about 10 mins and ready to get his hunt on!

It took him about 2-5 mins and he found the ring! Without Steve we would have gone back to New Zealand with no ring and my wife and I would have been devastated. I cant thank him enough!

Having the ring found was umm lost for words ” a miracle!!” I don’t know what I would have done if Steve never crossed our path.

Thanks so much!”

Regards, Andrew

    Hi Steve,

    I would greatly appreciate your help in finding my wife’s lost earring. It was a wedding anniversary gift. please call me at your earliest convenience. I was so upset seeing the look on my wife’s face, as she cried and became so upset about the fact that she had lost her earring. This was especially difficult seeing her so upset as she had just recently lost her father who had suddenly passed away. He was a veteran so this past memorial day was especially difficult.

    Thank you again for your consideration.

    Hi Steve,

    I lost my gold jewelry inside the house. I searched but couldn’t find. Is it possible to find it using the metal detector inside the house. Please email me.
