I got a call from Alan yesterday afternoon. His wife had been putting sunscreen on at the beach, and had taken her ring off to do it. The ring had been in her lap, and then she stood up to do something. It was at that moment she realized the ring had been in her lap, and was now buried in the sand. Alan, and his wife, with the help of their friend proceeded to sift through the sand, but could not find the ring. I discussed the loss with Alan, and told him to secure the area, so that someone else could not lay out their towels over the area of the loss. I let him know I was on my way, and would let him know as soon as I arrived.
When I got there Alan met me on the strand, and he took me over to where they were sitting. I could see that they had created a circle around the area, and I knew that if the ring was there we would have a quick search. The reason I ask a lot of questions, and ask people to stay where they believe to loss occurred, is so they can help me to help them, and I can make the process less “painful” for them. I searched all around the center of the circle with nothing. I then went to move a beach chair when my coil swept over the area, and I could hear the low gold tone in the headphones. I missed it on the first scoop, and scooped again. There it was. I reached in and pulled out a beautiful diamond and white gold wedding ring that I handed over to Alan’s wife, who immediately became very emotional; she was so happy. To see the joy all around, and smiles everywhere; made for a great end of a day.
