Josh and his brother Luke were down from Canada to visit their cousins. They decided to visit Clearwater Beach, and after a round of football in the water, Josh realized that his custom-made class ring was no longer on his finger! He went to talk to the lifeguard, who provided him with the contact info for the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club, SRARC.com. While Josh kept a close eye on the area of the suspected loss, Bill Gallant and Mike Shuler loaded up and rushed to Clearwater Beach. They met up with Josh, who directed the hunters into the water, which was now shoulder-deep because of the incoming tide. Within 15 minutes, Josh was looking into the sand scoop at the ring he admitted he had very little hope of seeing again! This was the last day of Josh’s visit, so we’re glad SRARC could help him enjoy the rest of his time here, and return home with the ring that means so much to him!

Kyle, his wife, and friends came to Anna Maria Island from Alabama for a little sun and surf on the gulf. They set up their chairs and towels close to the gulf’s edge. Kyle was doing a little reading while relaxing in the sun when they decided to go for a swim. He carefully hide his wedding ring in the book and left it on the chair with the towels and other articles. When everyone returned and grabbed towels and things somehow the book got moved and the ring was lost in the sand. When Kyle went to retrieve his ring he could not find it. They all searched through the sand but with no luck. That evening Kyle’s wife googled lost ring Anna Maria Island and up popped SRARC ring finders. She contacted Joe Szemer and he contacted Mike Miller who made arrangements to meet Kyle at the location. About 6 swings and there it was just barely showing through the sand. Kyle held the ring up into the air and cheers from his friends broke out from the balcony above us. His giant smile was a wonderful thing to see.

Julio and Maria were vacationing from Georgia and enjoying a swim in the gulf when Maria’s engagement ring slipped off her finger. After searching in the water without success, they found our SRARC Ring Finders site and contacted us to do a hunt. Bill Gallant and Howard Metts searched for the ring for about 35 minutes. Howard Metts came up with the ring to the astonishment of the young couple. They were heading back to Georgia the next morning and were relieved to see the ring again.

A’royri was enjoying time with family in the backyard. She was holding her 2-year-old cousin, who unexpectedly pulled out her gold and diamond cluster earring, then dropped it in the grass. The earring set had been given to A’royri by her brother, and was highly sentimental to her. A’royri and her family gridded the backyard with an old Bounty Hunter metal detector from 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM with no luck. They were about to give up hope when someone discovered Ringfinders and the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club online. A’royri contacted the SRARC, and club president Howard Metts put out a notice of the loss to club members. The next morning, Howard and club members Bill Gallant and Mike Shuler responded to the home. After about 15 minutes of detecting, the beautiful earring was retrieved from the yard and placed into the hand of a very happy A’royri!

Mark and Amber were down from Pittsburg to visit family and friends, and to enjoy the beach from their seaside condo. Amber was mossing a defender in an intense game of football in waist-deep water, and soon after discovered that her beautiful wedding ring was no longer on her finger! The group snorkeled for hours trying to recover Amber’s precious ring. The couple started to lose hope and were already discussing a replacement ring when they returned to Pennsylvania, when a bypasser suggested they look up Ringfinders on the internet. They found the site and were directed to the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club. Mark and Amber contacted SRARC vice president Joe Szemer, who made arrangements for a hunt with metal detectors. Club members Bill Gallant, Ed Osmar, and Mike Shuler responded and started gridding the area. After about 45 minutes of searching, an emotional Amber was able to pick her ring out of the scoop and place it back on her finger! We’re glad Mark and Amber will be able to fully enjoy the rest of their visit!

Drew joined his mother, father, and brother for a short vacation away from Massachusetts. They met at Turtle Beach on Siesta Key. They headed down to the beach and spent the afternoon playing in the sand and Gulf of Mexico. That morning, Drew had bargained for and purchased a silver bracelet. He wore it proudly to the beach and into the gulf. After rough housing in the water with his dad and brother, he returned to the beach and then noticed he no longer had the bracelet. He spent the next 2 days snorkeling in search of the bracelet but without any luck. His mother did some searching on the internet and finally discovered the SRARC Ring Finders group. Using his mother’s information, he contacted Howard Metts who did a call out for team members. Mike Shuler, Bill Gallant, and Mike Miller answered the call and met Drew the next morning. Drew gave them the perimeters for the hunt and off they went on the search. Mike and Mike headed out to the first sandbar to begin the hunt while Bill began a grid closer in. Mike Miller was a few feet in front of Mike Shuler and had just climbed up onto the sandbar when Shuler held the bracelet up in his hand. Shifty Shuler had done it again, 5 minutes into the hunt and he single handedly turned the hunt into a successful recovery. As we walked back to shore Drew stood up in disbelief and as Mike handed him the bracelet a big smile spread across his face. It is always a great pleasure to be part of a successful recovery and return.

Chuck and his wife were relaxing in chairs on the bulkhead of their Siesta Key Condo watching the boats pass by on the inland waterway. Chuck was leaning forward fidgeting with his wedding ring and it slipped over the end of his finger and out of his hand. The ring bounced once on the concrete bulkhead and dropped into the water. He got a small net and some scuba gear hoping to scrap it up out of the bottom but he had no luck. Later that evening his wife found SRARC Ring Finders and contacted Howard Metts. Howard transmitted a callout and Mike took the challenge, contacted Chuck and arranged to meet him in the 4th of July. It was a very difficult hunt due to a large amount of iron spread throughout area. After about an hour and a half of hunting Mike was able to separate the ring from the iron and out of the deep it came. Now this was a pretty good day for Chuck, he was able to celebrate Independence Day, His 41st wedding anniversary, and the return of his wedding ring originally placed on his finger 41 years ago. He was a very happy man.

Jerry and Sue came to Anna Maria Island to have their wedding. All the families were there on the beach to attend the ceremony. Luke, Jerry’s son the best man, was busy organizing the wedding party because of an impending thunder storm and was on and off his cell phone several times prior the ceremony. Finally everything was ready and the wedding began. When the time for handing over the wedding ring came, Luke searched all his pockets but could not find it so the wedding went on without the ring. After the event was over the wedding party retraced their steps but could not find it. The next day someone found SRARC Ring Finders online and contacted Howard Mett’s. He organized a hunt and soon Tom and JoAnn Gajentan along with Mike Miller met the newly married couple and started a search. After about 10 minutes, Mike got lucky and out of the sand came the missing wedding ring. The couple were overjoyed and could not wait to relieve Luke’s sadness over losing the ring. It had simply fallen out of his pocket as he was placing and receiving calls on this cell phone. All is good that ends with such a happy result may you have many happy years together!!!!!!!
