Ed Osmar and Rick Magyar, were metal detecting on Anna Maria Island at Holmes Beach. Ed went North, Rick went south. Soon Rick was approached by a woman and asked if he could look for a lost ring. ($1000.00 reward if found). Rick went to get Ed and get his wet suit out of the car so he could go in deep water. Ed went in shallow water. Fifteen minutes later the ring was found by Ed. About 2 hours later the ring was returned to the owner’s mother-in-law. She was prepared to give us a check for $1000.00. We would not accept the gift; however we did suggest she might make a donation to our club, Suncoast Research and Recovery Club, if she wished. It turns out that she was the mother-in-law of the owner so we texted a picture of the ring to the owner so that he could identify it as the one he lost. Needless to say, he was quite happy! She will be returning the ring to the owner who lives in Michigan.
We at SRARC are very proud of both Rick and ED for a great recovery.
