Austin called a couple of days ago asking for help in finding his ring. He had been at the beach, and wanted to go in the water, which is what he did. He came out of the water and as he walked back to his belongings he started shaking his hands to remove the water as he walked along. When he got back to his towel, he realized his ring was gone. He did remember it being on his finger when he came out of the water, but now it was gone. I happened to be coming back from my son’s college and asked if he would be able to wait for me to get home and get my equipment, and he said he could. I then said I would be there as soon as possible and let him know when I arrived.

When we finally met up, Austin took me over to where he had been, and where he believed he had shaken his ring off of his hand. I then began a close grid making sure I covered every inch. I found numerous  pieces of metal, bottle caps, foil, and some coins, but no ring, so I expanded my search area. Austin continued to show me where he might have been as my search area expanded. I started to work more towards the water, and he kept saying he believed the ring to have come off in the other direction, but I asked if he would just allow me to search a little more in the direction I was going, I would go in the other direction after. As he was looking over on the other side of the search area, I got a good signal, dug and had his ring in my scoop. I then called him over to ask him again about where he might have been when the ring came off, and as he started explaining again, I held up his ring. He looked over and saw it, and did a double take; he could not believe it was found, and that it was all the way over where I had found it. I let him know that we sometimes have to go “out of the box” sometimes to find what people thought was lost forever. This ring is very special to him, his wife has a matching one. So glad to have made his day!
