I received a somewhat desperate call from Sarah about 8:00 PM, she had been at the beach earlier in the day, and lost her Tiffany necklace. The weather had finally warmed up, and lured many to the beaches to enjoy the change, Sarah included. She was sitting on her blanket, and realized that her necklace was causing a bit of irritation, so she removed it and placed it on the blanket so as to not lose it. When it was time to leave she forgot the necklace was still on the blanket, got up, shook the sand off of it, and left for home. She got pretty far from the spot before she realized the necklace was gone. She called, and I told her if she would wait, I would come immediately to conduct the search. She agreed to wait, and I was on my way.

When I arrived Sarah told me that the necklace was given to her by her parents, and recently had lost her father, so this necklace loss was a very painful one. She took me out to the area, and explained what had happened. There were some people in the area, so I began working around them until they left. I set a grid, and worked in one direction, Sarah then told me that she believed she was more in the opposite direction, so I changed over to the new area. I was finding some bottle caps, and few coins, and continued the grid. After about 7 or 8 passes, at about 9:30 PM, I got a good silver tone in the head phones, looked down, and saw a partially covered heart. I reached down, and brought up Sarah’s necklace unharmed. I was surprised no one else had found it because it was not totally hidden. Sarah became very emotional telling me that it was one of the things she owned that her father had last touched, and that she had been listening to the music he enjoyed on her way back for the search. What a smile, right?!
