Received a call Monday evening from Eric stating he lost his wedding ring over the weekend. The ring came of his finger while playing volleyball in about 5 ft of water. He and his friends searched for two hours without any luck…
A search on Google brought him to TheRingFinders website and a phone call to me. We made arrangements to meet Tuesday evening after work. He was headed to PA on Weds and then out of the country for several weeks. I was determined to do what I could to find his ring prior to him leaving town.
It was a fairly small search, 15 x 15, in one corner of a roped off swimming area. After going over that area pretty well, for about an hour, we started to expand the search. Shortly after that, I had a good signal in roughly 4 feet of water. Using a homemade digging tool with a mesh bag attached, I raked the bottom and pulled it up out of the water. There in the bottom of the bag was a ring. I swung it over to him and asked him “What does that look like to you?
He didn’t see it at first, but when he did, he gave me a look of disbelief with a side of grin. He reached in, pulled it out, and promptly put it back on his finger.
I’m pretty sure he made a phone call to his wife shortly after we parted ways.
Eric, it was a pleasure meeting you and thanks for giving us a call. Tony
