Gary spent the day planting new plants and doing yard maintenance. At the end of the day he discovered his ring was missing. Stacy, Gary’s wife, contacted our club and Howard Metts was dispatched to attempt a recovery. Stacy met Howard and after 1 1/2 hrs of hunting Gary came home and Howard re-hunted areas he showed him as possible locations for ring. After 2 1/2 hrs of searching and finding only some coins, Howard asked Gary (the husband) to retrace his steps as Howard knew from his wife he was in the garage. First step was to get a hand trowel out of his tool box. He opened the drawer to the toolbox and there sat the ring. I was glad he found it as there was no way I could have missed it when detecting. What a good ending to a difficult hunt.
