Miranda was spending the day enjoying the North Carolina sun and removed her ring before going for a dip into the Atlantic Ocean. It wasn’t until after they had left she realized the ring was lost. When she returned to search, someone told her there was a detectorist hunting the same area she had set up earlier. After an online search she messaged me and asked if I was the one on the beach earlier that day. Neither I or some my nearby friends who detect had hunted that area. I then proceeded to Bogue Inlet Pier to conduct a night hunt. Because of a misunderstanding of location the hunt took me almost 3 hours before I found the ring! It was a huge relief for the both of us as it was very hot even at 2:00 am and I was hunting the soft dry sand. I returned the ring to her later that afternoon!
