I received a text from Rebekah Saturday evening after losing her engagement ring in waist deep water in Lake Michigan at Holland State Park. She and Mike had only been engaged 3 weeks and was desperate for help to retrieve it. I was able to meet them at the park the following day but when I got close to the park the traffic backup to get in was a half mile long. Hoping I wouldn’t have to park outside the park and hike in with my detecting gear I was let into the park after about a 20 minute wait. Rebekah had a pretty good idea where the ring had slipped off so I began a methodical search. Normally, it would take 30-40 minutes to find a target given they knew approximately where they ring was lost. This search, however, turned out to be the longest search I’ve ever done. After 2 hours, Mike and Rebekah had to leave and I said I’d stay another hour, if I hadn’t found it by then I’d return the following weekend and try again. An hour later, just as I was about to give up, I got a solid signal and saw her beautiful white gold and sapphire ring in my scoop.
