A couple of days ago I received a call from Terisa about the loss of her Mercedes electronic car key. She had gone to the beach to relax, and laid out her blanket on the slope to the water to enjoy the sun and pleasantness of the ocean. She tucked her key in her waist band and laid down. When she awoke from a sleep she enjoyed her key was gone. It must have come out while sleeping and moving around. She searched, and others in the area helped, but were unable to find the key. I let her know that I would be there as soon as possible.

When I got to the area Terisa was unable to meet me there, so I was going to with the information she gave me to figure out where to start my search. As I was searching a gentleman came over to inform me that a lady had lot her car key earlier and was wondering if I could help. I let him know that was why I was there, and he proceeded to show me where the actual search area was. He was one of those who helped Terisa earlier in the day. I could see the drag marks in the sand where they had dragged their feet and hands in the sand hoping to feel the key. The sand moves so much when you search in that manner, it usually moves the object out of the way. I began my search, and during the second pass got a real strong signal, dipped the scoop in and out came Terisa’s key. She wasn’t able to meet for the return until the next day, so I got down there, let her know that I had arrived, and did a little metal detecting while I waited (always good to keep practiced up). When She arrived she was very happy to have the key back, and I was very happy to have made her day!
