I received a phone call asking if I could help find a lost ring. The story was that she and her husband were on a short get away trip to try and relax. Her husband has been ill with cancer, and they needed a break so came to Yakima as one of their stops. Needing his medication in the back of the car they pulled over at McDonald’s. When he shut the back hatch of their SUV he heard a metallic “ting” sound and noticed his large gold wedding ring had flown off his finger. He has lost allot of weight from the illness. They looked for the ring, but with the fall leaves piling up in the curbs and the low cut landscaping in the parking lot they could not find the ring.
Feeling pretty upset about the lost ring, they returned to their hotel room and were planning on canceling the rest of the trip. Not wanting to leave town without the ring she began to search online for a place to rent a metal detector. She could not find one to rent, but during the search she found my name on the Ring Finders Metal Detecting site. Once contacted we agreed to meet at the parking lot. After searching the wind swept leave piles next to the curb no ring was found. I expanded the search into the landscaping and was able to find the ring in short order.
She was very happy and cried some tears of joy at the found ring. You can imagine how upsetting it would have been to leave town without this ring. I can say that this is one of my most memorable searches. I was very very happy to find the ring. That huge smile when she had the ring back was priceless. I do love finding lost ring.
