Wedding Ring Recovered at Honeymoon Island State Park

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Leanne and her husband were at Honeymoon Island enjoying a sunny day her husband. He was crab walking through the stones to get back to shore and lost his ring in the rocks. After looking for a while, they asked at the ranger station if anyone had turned in a ring. The Ranger said no but that he knew some people that would come help them look for the ring. She gave them Howard Metts phone number. They contacted Howard and he called Stan Flack and asked him to meet at 2 o’clock on Honeymoon Island so they could look for the ring. The conditions were very rough, 3 to 4 foot waves on an incoming tide. Howard and Stan ventured into the rough water and after about one and a half hours of hard searching Howard was able to get a good signal. After some digging through all the rocks the ring was recovered and returned to Leanne. She returned to the car where her husband was waiting in the car with their young daughter. She returned his ring and he was very happy and they all ended the day with great big smiles. Howard is now the King at Honeymoon Island. Nice work guy’s!!!!!!

Honeymoon Ring 2 Honeymoon hunt 2

Ring recovered at Honeymoon Island, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

81 year old James Mahaffery and his wife were down from Gainsville visiting their son and they decided to spend some time at the beach. Last Wenesday they headed out to Honeymoon Island and were enjoying the water. James was on his hands and knees playing in the surf when his hand slipped off a rock and his custom ring disappeared into the sand. They looked for quite a while but could not find it. The ring was a custom made heavy silver ring with 2 horizontal bands of gold and had been on his hand for many years. They gave up and a few days later contacted Howard Metts to see if he could help. Howard is member of the SRARC ringfinders team so he made arrangements for the team to do a hunt on today. Six hunters showed up and within 30 minutes the ring was recovered. James son met us at the beach and when Chris returned the ring he called his Mom and she was so surprised and pleased it was a joy to hear her reaction over the phone. A big thanks to Chris Duerden, Howard Metts, Paul Hill, Mark Prue, Stan Flack, and Mike Miller for helping with this recovery.
