Leah contacted me last Saturday explaining how she had lost her 2 rings (An engagement ring, and wedding band) 3 weeks ago in a school soccer field, and was wondering if I could help. It wasn’t sounding too hopeful, but I felt she needed closure, so I agreed to meet her for the search. With that much time having gone by, there were so many possibilities for the rings not to be there, but sometimes you never know. She was pretty certain that the field is where the loss occurred after reviewing pictures from the event she was at there.
We met at the school, fortunately now out of session to perform the search. Leah took me to the field, and there weren’t too many areas where the ring could have hidden, but the places she had been had some nice tall grass, and weed patches. I began my search, and then Leah showed me another area she had been that looked more promising, so I changed my search area. Leah and her friend were doing a visual search of their own while I worked. There was a lot of metal in the ground, most of it too deep to find, but causing me to stop and check very often. Finally in one of the larger weed patches, after getting a solid signal, I put in the pin pointer to locate the origin of the signal, and spotted her engagement ring, a large diamond solitaire. I then lifted it and held it out for her to see. She then came running over, looked at the ring, and said “My ring, this my ring” with a tone of disbelief, I am sure thinking it would never be found. I then focused my search on her wedding band, going over all the areas she had been, and expanded out from there, but was unable to find it. It could have fallen in an area that was exposed to others to see, and might have been picked up; 3 weeks is a long time. It was great to have found Leah’s engagement ring. She got it for her 10th wedding anniversary last year, and was heartbroken to have lost it. I was so glad to bring her smile back.
