IPhone 6S lost at Venice Beach, CA...Found and Exuberantly Returned

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I had just finished dinner last night when my phone rang. It was Nico who had lost his IPhone 6S on the beach earlier in the day, and was wondering if I could help him find it. I asked my usual questions, and figured it would be best to go immediately to do a search. I told Nico I would meet him there, so he could show me the area.

I met Nico at the beach about 7:45 PM, and we walked to the area, which was about a mile down the beach. As we walked I found out, he is a musician from Austria who is on tour with his band “Munchie Squad”, and that he would be traveling from the area soon, so finding the phone was really important. When we arrived in the area, I began my search at the most likely spot after he described what had happened. We were the only two people on the beach, except for the occasional police SUV. I covered the whole area digging every shallow signal knowing the phone could not be deep. It wasn’t there, so he showed me another possible area. It wasn’t there either. He then thought that they may have traveled in a diagonal from the original position, so I set a line from where we stood to the original spot, and began to grid. I walked about 15 feet, and found his phone. It was now about 10:00 PM. I handed the phone to Nico, and he celebrated like Rocky Balboa at the top of the stairs in Philly. I was so happy to have made his day!
