Laura & Roy were spending a traditional trip to Emerald Isle, North Carolina with their Maryland friends. Roy handed his wedding band to Laura while he went for a swim. Laura placed her husbands ring in a pocket attached to a beach chair among the group of other friends chairs. It wasn’t until much later when Laura went to retrieve the ring from the pocket. It was then she discovered the pocket had a hole that allowed the ring to escape.
Laura called me after a friend in the group mentioned someone must search for these kind of things and she also found from a local surf shop of my business of finding lost items. Laura gave me a call the following day and I agreed to load up and head her way. After searching beach near the water first, I made my way toward the higher beach. After a few unwanted signals, I came across a solid tone on my CTX-3030. After 1 scoop I held the ring up in the air for Laura to see and she dropped to her knees with relief!
Adam was spending another vacation day with the family. Searching for shark teeth, hoping to witness a baby turtle nest hatch and throwing a ball with one of his sons. He stated that he usually keeps the ring home but in this occasion, forgot… Adam contacted Emerald Isle Metal Detecting shortly after the loss and plans were agreed. Adam was very helpful in showing the area he thought the ring was in while he was along the shoreline. My 2nd target, just after his son & wife walked past, was Adam’s ring!
Sheldon was heading from the beach house to the beach. A burst of wind pulled her hat off and it’s chin strap grabbed one of her gold hoop earrings. Within minutes of arriving, I recovered the stray earring and Sheldon was a very happy woman!

Cody’s (the husband) story of tragedy to triumph…
So we were spending the day on the beach with visiting family and 13 days after celebrating our one year anniversary as the vehicle keys were being pulled from the beach bag along came my wife’s wedding band. After thoroughly searching the vehicle and bag we headed back to the beach at sundown to search the parking lot and do a quick check of the beach we decided instead of wasting more tears we would wait till the morning To seek help I called a business and got the recommendation to give Mr. Ray of Emerald Isle Metal Detecting a call. Less than two hours later he called us over as he was kneeling on the beach and my wife’s tears turned to happy tears as she picked her wedding band from the sand. We our forever grateful! Thank you so much!

Tonya’s friend came to visit from Arizona for the weekend. Since her friend loves beaches, they headed from Goldsboro, NC to Atlantic beach,NC. Tonya had placed her wedding set inside a pocket of her bag. She feels when she moved her bag on the beach the rings fell from the pocket. The wedding ring fell from the bag while the engagement ring was found in the bottom of the bag. A detectorist friend of hers in Hawaii posted a plea in the local Facebook page. Detectorist Daen tagged me in the post and I headed to the beach. After a few passes the ring had been found and all involved were shortly notified. I met Tonya’s family the next day and the ring was returned to it’s proper place. The story of Tonya & Tomas’ ring can now continue to share in their life together.
Gold Ring Lost in Wilmington Found
Jeff contacted me about a wedding band lost behind his parents house. He explained it is located in the marsh of the Intracoastal Waterway. My first search with him present was unsuccessful due to the large amounts of reeds & weeds growing from the soft muck sand. I returned shortly afterwards with a new approach and attitude and this time was able to pick up a brief tone in a thick section of reeds. Resolving to not let any signal go unchecked, I was able to locate the gold ring and send Jeff the good news!

Jon was preparing to play volleyball when he placed his sentimental necklace in a bag for safe keeping. On the journey from the beach house to the shoreline beach, the necklace slipped out of the bag and hide in the soft sand. A phone call to me later that evening was to request to rent a metal detector. After I explained that I search for lost items, Jon wanted me to come out as soon as possible. With the use of flashlights I started searching and finding many bottle caps in the process. Finally my coil swung over Jon’s necklace and I sifted the sand through my fingers to lift up his lost treasure.
Christian was spending a beautiful day on the beach with his 9 month old along his side. For safe keeping, Christian placed his wedding ring in one of his shoes that he had removed. Seeing that his little one needed attention, he leaned over to tend to his child when his foot kicked and accidentally kicked the shoe containing the ring.
After failing to locate the ring is the soft sand, he resorted to the internet and called me to assist. I sensed an urgency in his voice and headed to his location promptly. Christian showed me the lines in the sand I asked him to mark the boundaries of where he believed the ring to be located. Starting in the middle of his box it was only a couple of search lines before his ring spoke to my detector. As the sand sifted through my fingers his wedding ring appeared.
