While flying a kite on Emerald Isle beach, the string slid past the young lady’s ear and pulled her earring out. Unable to locate the earring in the dry sand during the windy day, they decided to call me later that evening to help in the search and recovery. We used the remaining earring to test the detectors. Once the tone was acquired the search began. It was a difficult recovery but everyone was happy in the end when the missing earring revealed it’s resting place.
