Got an email form Brett about a lost ring. I contacted him and the next morning we were able to get together. It seems that he was cleaning fish at the creek side, and the fish slime caused his wedding band to slip off. I made it a little harder for myself than I needed to but I finally went back to the beginning and sure enough, there was the ring. I want to thank Brett and his wife for their kindness. Now he can enjoy the rest of his stay here in the NC Smokey Mountains. Please watch the video to see the whole story.
A gentleman contacted me on about a lost wedding band. “Familiar story” you say. Well this unfortunate fellow had only been married for a week and already had the misfortune of losing his wedding band while kayaking. After a phone conversation about where he lost his ring, it was evident that this was not going to be an easy recovery. The suspected area was very large but I gave it a shot. After a large sweep of the area, and still on location, I contacted the gentleman to confirm where he got out of the river (that was the place where he realized his ring was gone). I figured I might as well start at the end and work my way back.
Unbelievably that is where I found the ring. Laying in plain view in about 8 inches of water. Lost for 4 days and still right on top of the gravel. It was meant to be for the owner to get his ring back. I contacted the owner while I was on location and he was to say the least shocked and amazed that I was able to find the ring. I promptly mail the ring back to him and he was more than gracious in showing his appreciation for the recovery and return.
I had a friend contact me about needing help finding his platinum wedding band he lost at the local HS football stadium. Didn’t sound like a hard recovery. And it wasn’t. Only took 10 minutes and all I had to use was my pinpointer. One more smile for the books!
