Dave & Maureen were enjoying a mini vacation on the beach of Emerald Isle, NC. Dave placed his wedding band in his hat while he was swimming in the ocean. When he returned, he put the hat on and the ring flew into the sand. The newlywed couple searched for 15 minutes but got rained out by a thunderstorm. Maureen texted me later that night and asked if I could search for the ring the following day or 2. After learning the ring was very close to a public beach access, I was concerned another person would find Dave’s ring. Even though it was getting late, they agreed to meet me as soon as I could arrive and begin the search. Dave & Maureen remembered the area very well and this lead to my quickest recovery yet as my first signal was his ring and using a headlamp, part of the ring was visible in the sand at night. I think I took 8-10 steps before finding his beautiful wedding band. It was very pleasing watching Maureen & Dave celebrate the recovery!
