Yesterday evening I received a call from Brooke regarding the loss of her husband’s wedding ring at the beach, and wondering if I would be able to help them. I asked a few questions, and finding out they were pretty close told her I could be there in about 20 minutes. They had already left the beach after spending about 3 hours searching for the lost ring (I’m sure very discouraged), when they found me on the Internet, and agreed to go back to show me where the ring came off.
When I got there, I met Brooke (and their little one) who took me out to the area of the loss, where I met her husband Nick. Nick showed me the area which he had drawn out by lines in the sand; it was an area about 12-15 foot square. He showed me the exact spot he believed the ring came off, and I could see they had done a lot of digging there. Nick told me how he moved the sand he already searched through to another spot within the marked off area. I started my search, and when I reached the area that the sand had been moved to, I got a good solid signal in my headphones. I dug once and missed, I checked again and dug a second time, getting a nice silver looking ring in my scoop. I showed Nick and Brooke that I had found the ring to their surprise. Nick acknowledged that he must have thrown the ring over to the other area not knowing that he had it in his hands at one time during his search. After their 3 hours of searching, it took no more than 5 minutes on my part to reunite Nick with his token of commitment to Brooke. Great day, and great smiles all around.
