I received a call from guy who had lost his wedding ring on the beach after he had put the ring in his hat for safe keeping while swimming but forgot about it as he went to put the hat back on. Although he realized his mistake immediately the ring disappeared into the sand. Doing a quick search on the internet got him my information and I arrived at the beach about an hour later. Still having his beach chair in the same location he move it and I began my search. After a quick minute my detector rang out and the ring was in my scoop! A very relieved couple were able to go back enjoying their vacation with the family!
A stellar day with my ring recovery mentor Edward Cropski. I got a call from a crying woman who lost her ring in the surf in Atlantic City. Then a few minutes later I got a call by a man who lost his wedding band in Brigantine. Ed and I went to Brigantine first. When Ed turned his machine on, the ring was right under his coil! Needless to say the family was much appreciative. Then off to AC we went. After about a little over an hour my Foxy Noxy gave me a solid 10 signal. Bam! There was the ring. When I brought it to her she began to cry tears of joy. Probably my best find to date. It’s very satisfying to return an heirloom when someone thinks it’s gone forever!!!
This is my official 4th and 5th recovery. I have just retired from 25 yrs of Law Enforcement service and can dedicate my time to doing recoveries.
I received a call from Mark who explained that he had lost his platinum wedding band on the beach a few days before his wedding anniversary which was inscribed in the ring. He stated that he had taken the ring off and put it in the cup holder of his chair so he could go swimming and not lose it,well that didn’t workout to well as he noticed it was gone when he relocated his chair as the tide was coming in. After getting the beach location and time of day of the lose I was able to get the location the following morning. After a couple hours of searching with nothing but coins and trash in my pouch I decided to move closer to the water even though he stated he was not too far down and within a few minutes I received a good solid signal from my metal detector. Scooping up some sand and washing it out I could see the ring in my scoop! looking closer I could see the inscribed wedding date 7-25-08 which was also the date at which I found it 7-25-17! moments later I called Mark who was celebrating his anniversary nearby in Atlantic city with his wife. He was so happy to hear the great news but his wife was even happier and crying and so thankful for my help. We met the following week and Mark was very happy to have his wedding ring back on his finger! Another Great Recovery #99!
Found it! Received a call from Dan (NYCPD) officer that while on the beach with his family today in Atlantic City his wife had lost her engagement ring. He marked out the area where they felt it was lost and within minutes of searching my White’s Beach Hunter ID got the hit and the beautiful diamond ring was in my scoop! They were extremely happy! Another great recovery! #88 for me!
