Lindsey & Mike were on the Emerald Isle Beach with their son and 2 dogs. Mike placed his wedding band in a bag before heading into the water. Between the fun on the beach, playing with their son and the dogs, the bag holding the ring was moved and the ring fell out unbeknownst to the young couple. After leaving the beach, Mike asked Lindsey for his ring and she had thought he had already taken it from the bag.
I was on my way later that day to recover another ring in the opposite direction. After some communications between Lindsey and I, I headed to the beach location the next day with a friend to search. The beach was crowded, of course, for a Saturday and this made some of the areas I suspected the ring to be located unavailable. After some time and expanding the search area, Mike’s ring was found at the top of a slope very close to being washed into the ocean. I took a picture as soon as possible and sent it on the Lindsey. We met the following day for the return.
