Josh and his brother Luke were down from Canada to visit their cousins. They decided to visit Clearwater Beach, and after a round of football in the water, Josh realized that his custom-made class ring was no longer on his finger! He went to talk to the lifeguard, who provided him with the contact info for the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club, SRARC.com. While Josh kept a close eye on the area of the suspected loss, Bill Gallant and Mike Shuler loaded up and rushed to Clearwater Beach. They met up with Josh, who directed the hunters into the water, which was now shoulder-deep because of the incoming tide. Within 15 minutes, Josh was looking into the sand scoop at the ring he admitted he had very little hope of seeing again! This was the last day of Josh’s visit, so we’re glad SRARC could help him enjoy the rest of his time here, and return home with the ring that means so much to him!

Bill was enjoying Clearwater Beach with a group of his coworkers. After spilling a drink on his hands, they became sticky and sand got under his wedding band. He removed it to wash his hands and didn’t realize until much later that he no longer had the ring with him! After returning to the site and raking through the sand with no luck, he turned to the internet to look into renting a metal detector. While he was searching, he discovered SRARC. He got in touch with club president Howard Metts, who put out a notice to the club’s Ringfinder members. Rob Clarke and Mike Shuler arranged to meet Bill at the spot where he remembered setting down his ring. Rob and Mike started gridding the area, and in less than 10 minutes, Bill was reunited with his ring!

Dana and her husband were throwing a ball at the waters edge when she noticed her 2 carat diamond ring was missing. They found our SRARC Ring Finders website and called Joe Szemer during our club meeting. Ed Osmar left the meeting to do a search with no luck. The next day Dimitur Alipieve and Howard Metts joined Ed for a second hunt. About an hour later Ed came up with the beautiful ring. Dana and her husband were amazed to see her ring again. Great find on the second attempt team!

Don and his wife were vacationing on Clearwater Beach when Don realized his wedding ring was missing. He had been in the water but may have lost it on the beach while in the dry sand. They were given our SRARC Ringfinder info from the Life Guard on duty and contacted Howard Metts several days latter. A hunt was scheduled with Rob Clarke, Howard Metts, Joe Montione, Pat Montione, and Ed Osmar responding. They hunted the dry sand for an hour with no luck. The team hunted the water for another hour before Howard came up with the ring. Howard mailed the ring to Seattle Washington and Don sent back a photo with the ring back on his finger again. Great job team!

Karen and friends walked over a mile down the beach and decided to take a late swim. Karen took off the gold school ring she received from her grandmother who had passed last year and placed it on her shirt in the sand. When leaving she picked up the shirt and the ring vanished in the sand. She found our SRARC Ring Finders website and contacted Howard Metts who set up a hunt. Rob Clarke, Howard Metts, Joe Montione, Pat Montione, and Ed Osmar hunted for well over an hour. Finally Karens friend remembered he took a picture with GPS coordinates, this placed us a few hundred yards down the beach. Finally Howard came up with the ring at the waters edge. What a happy ending for Karen’s Florida vacation, she now has a story to go with her grandmother’s ring! Way to go team SRARC!

Kristen took off her ring and put it on the chair to put sun tan lotion on. When ready to leave she picked up the chair forgetting the ring was in it. Realizing the ring had fallen into the sand where she could not see it, she searched on line for help and found our SRARC Ring Finders website. Joe and Pat Montione along with Ed Osmar met with Kristen to do a search the next day. Ed was able to find the ring in 10 minutes. Kristen was very happy to see the ring again! Great job team!

Dylan and Nicole were in town from Denver to visit family and friends, and to hang out at the local beaches. Dylan was standing in the water at Indian Shores Beach throwing the football when his white gold wedding band came off his finger. The search that followed proved unproductive, and an internet search led Dylan to Ringfinders. He contacted SRARC vice president Joe Szemer, who put out a notice about the loss. Bill Gallant and Mike Shuler responded and met Dylan at the site. Dylan stayed as long as he could, but eventually had to leave to meet family in Clearwater. After two hours of unsuccessful hunting, Bill and Mike were getting concerned. They decided to go outside the boundaries of the search zone, and within a few minutes, the ring was found! They contacted Dylan, who rushed back to the beach with Nicole to meet Bill and Mike in the parking lot! The photo shows how excited this wonderful couple was to have their sentimental item back! Since he had to return to Denver the next day, SRARC is especially glad that Dylan could relax and enjoy the last day of his Florida vacation!

Annie took off her ring and put it in her pocket while applying sun tan lotion. While washing the sand off her feet before leaving she noticed the ring was no longer in her pocket. She called her friend Austin a fireman with Clearwater who contacted Howard Metts. A hunt was set for the next day with Rob Clarke, Dimitur Alipiev, Ed Osmar, Gary Leyland, and Howard Metts attending. Annie was showing us where she sat on the sand when Gary looked down and saw something shiny. He turned his machine on to verify it was metal and produced the ring, most of us never had a chance to turn on our machines! A quick hunt with a very happy ending and a very thankful Annie. Great job team!

Tobias and his wife Imke were spending a day on Clearwater Beach. When they got home he noticed his ring was missing. The police were called to report the ring missing and the officer on duty suggested they call our SRARC Ring Finder group. Howard Metts received a text and set up a hunt. Bill Gallant, Howard Metts, and Ed Osmar hunted for 30 minutes before Bill came up with the ring just outside the search area. As you can see from the expression on Imke, she was amazed and overjoyed that her husband’s ring was found. This will be a very Merry Christmas for them with a story they can tell family and friends.

Mike was rubbing bug lotion off his hands while standing on the dock behind his sailboat. His wife who was in the sailboat heard a small splash and Mike realized he had slid his gold anniversary ring off his finger into the water. They found our SRARC Ring Finders website and contacted Howard Metts. Howard and his wife Jeanine came out two days later with their hookah dive rig to search for the ring in 10-11 feet of water. With zero visibility and 4 inches of silt on the bottom, Howard came up with the ring using his hand held metal detector. Mike and his wife Joselyn were amazed to see the ring again!
