Lorena was out with her family for a day at the beach over the Labor Day weekend. Late in the afternoon she decided to go for a quick dip in the gulf before heading for home. As she stood in the water about waist deep she felt a ring slip from her finger. The ring was passed down to her from her father who has since passed and it was very important to her.
She and the family looked for about an hour without finding the ring so on the way home she goggled metal detector Clearwater and up popped SRARC on The Ring Finders blog. She called Stan and he made a fast trip to the location where Lorena met him. Stan hunted for about 45 minutes until it got too dark and stormy to continue. SRARC scheduled another hunt the next day. Lorena met Chris, Mark, and Mike and showed them where she thought it might be found. About 15 minutes later Mark pulled his scoop up and there it was. There were plenty of hugs and smiles to go around with Lorena overjoyed to have her father’s ring back on her finger.
Special congratulations go to Mark Sillence for getting his first ever ring on his first ever hunt with the SRARC recovery team. Nice work Mark and the rest of the SRARC team.
