Yesterday I received a call from Cathy, she was asking for help in finding her husband David’s wedding ring at the beach. They had been there the day before in the afternoon, and sometime when applying sunscreen, his ring went missing. They looked, but were unable to find it, or remember exactly where they had been sitting. Cathy found me on The Ring Finders web site, and called. I was able to go right away, and they were at the location, which was going to be a big help.
When I got there Cathy met me and walked me down to the area she believed the loss to have occurred. I took one look at the beach, and my heart immediately sank. The beach had the tell tail sign of having been cleaned by the county sifting machine not the rake, smoothed beach with tire tracks. So the first thing I did was to inform Cathy that because of the beaches condition, the prospects did not look well for a successful search, but told her that there is always hope, and I would conduct the search none the less. David came over not long after and using the pictures he had taken when they were there tried to narrow down the area where they had been sitting. He showed me the pictures, and then said he thought he had remembered a red piece of plastic that was on the beach being the same one that they had been next to the day before. Looking at the pictures, the pattern in the sand from the sifters looked the same as they did now. Could it be that they had skipped a day, and not many people had visited that area since yesterday, I was encouraged, and began my search. One pass, two, three, four, bobby pins, bottle caps, a piece of foil, a penny, and then on pass five, a good solid signal, one scoop, and there it was David’s white gold ring. I held it up towards where they had been sitting, and they came right over. Cathy gave me a hug, and David shook my hand, both very happy to be able to hold David’s ring again, and see it again where it belongs. Another happy couple, and a great day!
