Sean and Angela were visiting Sean’s parents and decided to take a walk to a house they were going to buy nearby. They started the walk down the sidewalk and got about four houses away when Angela spotted something and swung her arm up to point. As her arm flew up, off flew her wedding band. She saw where it went into the grass along the sidewalk so they searched until dark and then again the next morning but could not find it. Now this was no standard ring. Sean had the wedding band custom made to fit around his grandmothers wedding ring. Although they still had the grandmothers engagement ring the custom gold band representing their marriage was lost. Angela googled “how to find a lost gold ring” and found the SRARC website with it’s success stories and the rest is history. Since the search area was so small Howard Mett’s called Mike Miller and he met Sean and Angela at the site a short time later. In a few minutes Mike found the ring hidden under the grass and was rewarded with lots of smiles and laughter.

Louise and several neighbors had their homes burglarized and a lot of jewelry stolen. After finding several pieces around a community pond, she contacted Howard Metts to arrange a hunt. Dane Trask hunted for about an hour and found and returned many vintage pieces which police verified belonging to Louise’s family. Great job Dane! Hopefully the HOA will allow us to return to continue the search as more items are yet to be found.<

Matt, his wife Tracey and Chris, his wife Amy came down from Indiana to enjoy Fall break with their children here in Florida. Chris and family went to Orlando to investigate the theme parks and Matt and family came to Anna Maria Island. Since they were friends, Matt invited Chris and family for a day at the beach. After they arrived from Orlando, both families headed together to the beach. They got settled on the sand and Matt and Chris headed out into the water and started throwing a football back and forth. On one of the throws, Chriss saw and felt his Gold and Platinum wedding ring fly of his finger. He knew right where it went into the water so he stood right there. They searched and searched but in the end could not find the ring. Later that evening Chris and family had to return to Orlando without his ring. Later that evening Matt googled “lost Rings on Anna Maria” and found SRARC Ring Finders. He contacted Joe Szemer who contacted Mike Miller who then did a callout for hunters. Mike Shuler, Dane Trask, and Mike all came together and meet Matt at the location the ring was lost. They got the information about where the ring was lost and went to work. About 20 minutes later Mike Miller got the sweet sound of Platinum in his ears and up came the lost ring in his scoop. There were lots if smiles as we waked back into the beach with the ring held high in the air. We don’t know when Chris will find out he has had his ring returned because we understand his wife Amy has some trickery planned, but we are sure he will end up with a great big smile on his face too.

Deb was at Siesta Key beach on a girls weekend enjoying the sun and sand. They laid out their beach towels and helped each other put suntan lotion on for protection. They talked and went for a walk and when they came back one of Deb’s friends grabbed her towel and shook the sand off. There were three rings on the towel and they all flew off in different directions. When they realized what had just happened panic followed as they frantically searched in the sand for the rings and in a short time they had recovered two of the lost rings. They continued to search but with no result. Later, Deb found SRARC Ring Finders on the internet and contacted Howard Metts. When Howard put out the call Mike Miller was just passing through the area and diverted to the lost ring location. After a few minutes of hunting, the ring was found and returned to a very happy Deb.

Sarah and Tyler headed over to Anna Maria Island from Boca Raton to meet two of their College friends, Brenna and Erin, who had traveled from Pennsylvania for a small reunion. They all meet at a local B & B on Holmes Beach and on their first evening together headed out to the beach to watch the sunset. They had set up their chairs and got some drinks out of the cooler when Sarah remembered that she had not removed her engagement ring. She quickly took it off and handed it to her fiancé, Tyler, who put it into his wallet and zipped it closed. They enjoyed the warm evening watching the sunset and reminiscing about their college days. When it came time to go Sarah asked for her ring and Tyler unzipped his wallet and to their surprise it was not in the wallet. They all searched and searched but could not find it in the dry sand. As it began to get dark. Brenna googled “lost ring Anna Maria Island” and up popped SRARC ring finders. She called Joe Szemer who contacted Mike Miller. Mike left immediately for the beach and was soon greeted by the gang. He quickly went to work and within a few minutes had the ring back on Sarah’s finger. When the ring came out of the sand, there was much laughter and many smiles. SRARC is so glad we were able to turn this disaster into a happy memory.

They set up their chairs at the edge of the tide line and just relaxed for a couple hours and then decided to take a walk down the beach.. After returning, Scott noticed his ring finger was swollen so he decided to remove his wedding ring and put on his little finger. They stayed a few more hours and then headed home. After arriving home, Scott noticed his ring was gone. Thinking back he remembered hearing a tink sound while setting in the chair and came to the conclusion that it must have been his ring hitting the chair.

When she discovered it was a lost ring she directed them to the SRARC Ring Finders. They called Joe Szemer and Joe called Mike Miller to meet them right away while they were still at the beach.

Gold Cross Lost On Holmes Beach, Recovered By SRARC

Rachel was spending the afternoon with her family at Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island. She had set her chair right at the edge of the water and was just enjoying the water lapping at her feet. When it came time to head home she stood up and walked a few feet towards the parking lot, then noticed the chain that held her gold cross was broken. She told me, “my beloved cross I’ve had since I was 16, came off my chain. I bought it with my own money after I started working at the movies” and now it is gone. They all searched the area for an hour and a half but could not find it. They finally left the beach with heavy hearts as it became dark and returned home to Brandon. The next day she asked for help in several metal detecting groups on Facebook. SRARC ring finders contacted her and soon we had Dane Trask headed to the beach for a recovery. Dane called Rachel from the beach and got detailed instructions and the hunt was on. After a quick hunt Dane pulled the cross from the sand. A short time later Dane met Rachel and family to return the cross. As you can see, Rachel was overjoyed to have her beloved cross back on her neck and Dane looks pretty pleased as well.

Ring Lost In Bradenton, Recovered By SRARC

Carl was washing the dog in his driveway in Bradenton. As he scrubbed, his hand flew up and his ring went flying out into the yard. This was his step fathers wedding ring given to him by Carl’s mother. It had been handed down to Carl after his mother had passed. Carl was very close to his step father who came into the family with a very interesting past. The family was living in Germany during Hitler’s rise and Carl’s step father and one brother were able to escape to the USA but lost all other family members in Auschwitz. He joined the US armed forces and ended up in the 101 Airborne Division. He fought at the Battle of the Bulge and also the capture of Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest. Carl held this ring with great respect and was heartbroken over it’s loss. Carl goggled the internet and found SRARC ring finders and was shortly connected with Howard Mett’s. Howard called for a hunt and Mike Miller responded. Mike met Carl at the site and Carl described where he thought the ring had landed. After going over the area several times with no luck we were loosing hope. Mike started checking the flower beds that were close to the area but nothing popped out. They started ripping the shrubs out so more of the ground could be covered and as the last of the bushes came Mike got a good hit. Carl was overjoyed as Mike help the ring up. Needless to say, Carl was grinning from ear to ear. SRARC is proud to return something so important to Carl but also to help keep the memory alive of one of our brave military veterans.
