Alejandro contacted me about 8:00 PM asking if I could help him find his lost wedding ring. He had lost it earlier that day, and had a pretty good idea as to the general area where it could be. He originally was thinking the next morning, but I convinced him that even though it was now dark, it would be best to go and try that night. I knew that everything would be fresh in his mind, and any even small markers would still be there to help narrow down the search area. He agreed to meet me there that night.

It was about 9:00 PM when we met at the beach. He and his wife walked me out to the area of the loss. There was a great expanse of sand so it was imperative to get the location narrowed down as much as possible. On most beaches everything tends to look the same, and even more so at night with a limited light beam to lighten the area. Alejandro felt he had gotten me to the spot, and I began my search. I was finding bottlecaps, and tin foil, but not much else. Alejandro remembered having dug a small hole in the sand in the area they had been sitting, and proceeded to look for it. About 15 minutes into my search, he and his wife called me over, they had found the small hole. It was about 3 orr4 inches across, and looked to be about 6 inches deep, definitely unique to what I had been seeing. When I swung just to the right of the hole over a small mound of sand, I heard what sounded like the sweet sound of gold in my ear phones. One scoop, and there it was, Alejandro’s ring. I brought it out and gave it to him. He and his wife were very happy we were able to do the search. Not gone forever, but found and returned. Happiness all around!
