Graduation Ring Recovered

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

This young man recently acquired his high school graduation ring that he was proud to wear. Unfortunately at a gathering of his buddies graduation night he high fived a friend with a bit to much enthusiasm that resulted in the ring flying off his finger, bounced across a wooden deck, onto a wooden dock, and disappeared into about 5 foot of water. Because it was dark the exact path and ultimate location could only be determined by sound. The boys rummaged around on the sandy bottom feeling with their feet with no success. They called me the next day and I started a search early that afternoon. The bottom had quite a bit of trash metal mixed with the sand as you would expect near a boat dock. I’ve a very good totality waterproof detector and carefully, slowly searched the area in a grid pattern, after about an hour searching I located his ring on the edge of a neighbors dock slip. He and a his friend were very excited to get the ring and we exchanged high fives all around… but with a little less enthusiastic force. 😎
