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.

Ring Lost In Bradenton, Recovered By SRARC

Diane is down for a few months to her winter home in Bradenton from Rochester, New York. She was digging a new flower bed in her back yard and when she finished she discovered an important ring was missing from her finger. The ring had been her mothers who had passed when Diane was only four year old. She had been wearing it her whole life and was just devastated when it went missing. She called her sister who came over and helped her look but they just could not find it. Later that evening while searching for a place to rent a metal detector she found the SRARC ring finders. She contacted Joe Szemer and he lined up Mike Miller to go hunt the 2’ by 5’ patch where the ring was thought to have been lost. Mike arrived the next morning and the ring was quickly found and returned. It is always a great feeling to return a precious item like this and share the joy and appreciation with the person who is so grateful to have it back again. Congratulations Diane!!!!!!!!!

Wedding Ring Lost In Sarasota And Recovered By SRARC

Steve and Leslie were out on the back canal cleaning dirt and leaves out of their boat. Leslie reached into the anchor storage vault and was flipping a hand full of leaves out into the water when she felt and saw her wedding ring fly off with the leaves and kerplunk into the water. She was very distraught and quickly went an put her snorkeling gear on to see if she could find it. She searched as long as she could but could just not find it. Later that evening she googled for help and discovered the SRARC ring finders group. After arrangements were made, Mike Shuler and Mike Miller arrived to do a search. The area was so small that they decide to only have one hunter go in. Mike Shuler hunted for a couple hours but had no luck and with the tide rising they decided to come back another day. About a week and a half later, at the next extra low tide, they returned and this time Mike Miller took a turn. In about ten minutes up came the ring. Mike and Mike had a great time returning the ring and enjoying the big smile on Leslie’s face. She graciously invited us into her home and provided us with a tour and coffee, and Bloody Mary’s. We had a great conversation and can only say we are so happy to have been able to return her ring.

Ring Lost On Siesta Key, Recovered By SRARC

Susan and Bill arrived on Siesta Key from Rhode Island for a weekend of family reunion to celebrate Bill’s Birthday. Their children, two siblings along with their children and grandchildren were due to arrive the next day for the beginning of the party. They headed out to the beach for some sun and relaxation before the big event commenced. Susan took her freshly cleaned and polished engagement ring off and set it on her chair to put suntan lotion on. They left the chairs to walk down the beach and when they returned, they quickly folded their chairs and towels and returned to their rental. About an hour later Susan realized she had forgotten about her ring. They returned to the beach and searched but it was not to be found. At some point she mentioned the lost ring to the rental homeowner and the owner found The Ring Finders site and sent it to Susan. Susan found SRARC on the site and contacted Howard Mett’s while she was standing in the spot where she thought they had been sitting. Howard contacted Mike who responded and after arriving at the site he found it right where she thought it would be. As the ring was returned, she looked up at him with tears of joy and a great big smile. SRARC hopes that she can now relax and enjoy the upcoming reunion and celebration.

Ring Lost On Anna Maria Island, Recovered By SRARC

Kathy and Steve were staying on Anna Maria Island for a week with their Daughter Katelyn and Son-in-law Jesse. On Wednesday afternoon they were all out at the beach enjoying the water and sun. As they tossed a football around while standing in waist deep water, Jesse felt his wedding ring slip off and watched it fall into the water. They all kept their wits about them. Katelyn was standing right next to Jesse when the ring came off, so she stayed right there, and the others searched all around her. They soon realized that they would most likely not find it. Kathy googled for help finding a lost ring and up popped the SARAC ring finders’ group. While Katelyn stood right where the ring had dropped, Steve went back to shore and retrieved a fishing pole holder. He returned to where Katelyn was standing and planted it into the sand so the location would not be lost. Mike responded to the callout and was soon on site. He hunted around the marker and kept expanding the search area. Finally, he decided to do a grid search covering about 40 ft each side of the marker. Starting in the deeper water and working in toward the shore. After about 45 minutes he was back to the area just shore side of the marker. As he approached the marker again, he stopped and asked Jesse why he felt that the marker was where he had been when the ring was lost. He said because his wife was standing where they had been, and she never moved until the marker was in place. Mike took one step after that and there it was about 3 feet from the marker. He couldn’t believe he had been over that area at least twice before and missed it. Jesse was very happy to see the ring come up and broke out into a great big smile. He said, “I think my wife will start talking to me again”, and when you look at the picture of her when she found out it was back on his finger, I think he is right. Now they have a great story and can enjoy the rest of their vacation.

Ring Lost On Cortez, FL Recovered By SRARC

Merry and Brian were visiting Anna Maria Island from Long Island for a
couple of months. They decided to have lunch at the Star Fish Company and
Restaurant in Cortez, Fl. After lunch they were sitting at the bar when an old
friend arrived. Merry stood up and hugged her friend and as she patted her on
the back her ring flew off and fell through the crack between the deck planks.
This was not just any ring, it was Merry’s grandmothers wedding ring handed
down to Merry’s mother and then to Merry her self just one month ago. Brian
went under the deck which is over the water and searched but could not find it.
A customer noticed what was going on and told Merry about SRARC ring finders.
Merry contacted Joe Szemer who sent a callout. Mike Miller responded and in about
10 minutes the ring was back on Merry’s finger. The customers at the restaurant
all cheered and Merry broke down in tears. We at SRARC get so much satisfaction
when we get to return a special item like this. We are ever so happy to have
recovered this heirloom for Merry.

Ring Lost On Anna Maria Island, Recovered By SRARC

Forrest, Alicia, and daughter Eliana along with Brother-in-law Derek and Annemarie were vacationing from Indiana and Chicago on Anna Maria Island. They spent the whole afternoon on the beach and playing in the gulf. Around 4:00 pm they packed up and headed to their rental unit. Shortly after arriving Forrest noticed his wedding ring was missing. They retraced their steps and search on the sand but did not find it. That evening Derek found the SRARC ring finders and made arrangements for a group to come out and search for the ring. Mike Shuler, Ed Osmar, Carl Boekemier, and Mike Miller met them a the beach. Since Forrest had know idea when or where the ring had come off a very large area of dry sand and water needed to be searched. They focused on the sand first and then moved into the water. After hunting for about 2 hours Mike Miller got the hit and up came the missing ring. Forrest was back at the rental so Derek gave him a call and he raced out to the beach. As we returned his ring he chocked up with joy and the whole group was nothing but big smiles. SRARC is happy to have made another vacation end as a happy one.

Ring Lost On Passage Key, Recovered By SRARC

Rachel and John were down from Ocala for a short weekend break on Anna Maria Island. They had their boat with them and headed out to Passage Key to catch some sun and water time. They pulled up on the North end of the key, anchored, and jumped out of the boat to hit the beach. Then they saw the sign that designated the whole island a preserve where you are not allowed onto the beach. They backed into the water and began tossing a football back and forth. They had become engaged just one year earlier and the ring had still not been sized correctly. Well just as you may have guessed, the ring flew off Rachel’s hand as the ball hit it. They frantically searched for several hours but to no avail. Their heads hung down they returned to their rental unit and spent a sad evening and restless night worrying about the loss. The next morning Rachel found SRARC on Google and contacted them. Mike Miller responded and set up a hunt for later that day. Mike met them and Rachel’s brother Kyle at their rental and they all headed out in the boat for the recovery mission. As they anchored the boat, Mike was looking around and much to his surprise discovered all the people around them were naked!!!!!!! He quickly jumped out of the boat thinking “I wonder what it is like to metal detect naked”, but quickly put his head down and went to work. As he worked Mike was thinking “Wow I wonder if they were throwing the football naked”. After a short time they made it clear that they were just as surprised the day before and had anchored as far away from the nudies as possible. Mike searched for about three hours and was getting close to calling it a day when he heard the sweet sound of platinum. When he dug the target, up came a beautiful 2 caret diamond ring. He turned to look at the boat where the others were listening to the Buck’s game and saw that Rachel was watching him. As Mike started walking toward the boat Rachel’s heart sunk for a moment thinking that he was done hunting, but then she yelled “did you find it” and Mike nodded his head yes. Mike has never seen two people get off a boat and into the water so fast. John and Rachel both raced toward him and he could see nothing but great big smiles on their faces. Mike got lots of hugs and smiles which is why we do this small service. SRARC wants to wish John and Rachel nothing but the best for their future life together. It was our pleasure to make their last night on their short break a happy one.

Lost Ring Recovered in Sarasota


Joe was out on the back porch in Sarasota doing a barbeque and as he finished up he walked over to the doggy pool  bent over and rinsed his hands. When he stood up he heard a tink sound and then thought he felt his class ring fall off. He looked at his hand and sure enough it was gone. He spent the next thee weeks looking every night for his ring. He finally heard about the SRARC ring finders and contacted Joe Szemer. Joe contacted Mike Miller and arrangements were made for a hunt that afternoon. After 4 or five trips over the small area that it should have been in with no hits, Mike and Joe thought that maybe it fell between the boards on the deck. Mike decided to go over the area one more time and a promising hit popped up. Joe bent over and parted the grass and with a big grin came up with his ring. It was great to see his smile and excitement having it back on his hand.

Bean Point, Anna Maria Island Lost Ring

Jon and family were down from Ohio for another vacation at their favorite spot on Bean Point, Anna Maria Island. Last year in November they were in the same area and Jon lost his wedding ring. This year he was being careful and took his new ring off and put on their blanket. After a few hours enjoying the beach they returned to the blanket, packed up their things and shook the sand out of the blanket. Oh no they forgot about his ring and now he had lost another wedding ring to the sands of Anna Maria Island. On returning home to Ohio, Jon found SRARC on the web and contacted us on the outside chance someone had found his ring. He provided a Google Earth map with approximate locations for both rings. Mike got the call and thought it was a long shot but decided to try for the recently lost ring anyway. Apparently Jon is a darn good guesser because after getting a few more details Mike was able to recover his ring in about 5 minutes. Mike is wondering if the second ring will be so easy. All our best to Jon for the return of his ring.
