Gold Earring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA...Joyously Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I was getting ready to eat my dinner last night when I received a call from Judith who had lost her earring in the sands of the beach. She had been walking along when she adjusted her hat. When she moved her hat, she heard a click, and reached up to notice one of the earrings her grandmother had given her was missing, it must have hooked in her hair which moved with her hat. She desperately searched for it as did her friends and some of the other beach goers to no avail. She then was given my number, and called for help. I was only 20 to 30 minutes away, so I grabbed my equipment, and was on my way.

When I got to the beach Judith and I found each other, and she led me to the area of the loss. I asked my questions trying to narrow down the search area by deductive reasoning. I began my search as I thought it should be done. My first signal was a hair pin. I then, as I moved in closer to where Judith and her friends had been sitting, received a real good sound in the head phones, and dug with my scoop. As I pulled the scoop out Judith told me her friends were sure the loss took place further out, and not where I was searching. While she was explaining this to me, I was looking at her earring in my scoop. That is when I reached in and held up her earring jokingly stating that the ring I found could not be the one we were looking for. Withing 2 minutes I was able to hand her earring back to her. Right away instant joy flooded her, and everybody around got excited about the recovery. When inquiring further about her grandmother and what this gift meant to Judith, I could see that it was a very emotional recovery indeed. What a wonderful thing to be able to produce this type of joy when something you thought was lost for good is found and returned.
