LOST A RING? CALL or TEXT 614-354-6704
HOLLY RIDGE, NC
Taylor texted me August 15th with a message stating, “This is a complete shot in the dark but I lost a ring in the last week of July at Topsail Island”
This class ring belonged to her mother. Taylor said she was given the ring when she was 6 years old and has worn it off and on for nearly twenty years.
She informed me the ring was lost above the high tide line. I explained that the odds are low especially if it was lost in the ocean or close to a public parking access as other detectorist hunt these places on a regular basis. Taylor still wanted me to give it a shot and my reply was “I agree. If nobody searches, there is no hope. We have found rings that were lost a longer period of time…” Upon arrival, I was becoming concerned as there were 2 public parking lots within 150 yards of the beach house her family rented. I started from the path to the beach house, walked just below the high tide line. I began my walk back towards the house when an iffy signal on my Minelab CTX-3030 caught my attention. When on a recovery search, I dig almost every signal so my scoop went to work and plucked out her ring on the very first scoop. I must admit, it even surprised me! I was so very happy to find her ring that had been lost for 20 days.
