Huge thank you to the group Srarc that goes out and helps people like me who could of had a sad wife on first day of vacation. Passing football in the ocean and it knocked my ring off. 30 minutes of searching and no luck. Looked over and saw a fella with a metal detector. With no real hope of finding it I did say I found it once with one in my yard. I had no real hope of finding it in the ocean. I asked the guy would his pick up rings and he said yes did you lose one. I told him I did and he said let me see what I can do. Within 20 minutes he waved me over and had found my ring down about 2 feet of sand in 3 feet of water. I asked him what did I owe him and he said have a great time on vacation. So relieved and so amazed at the odds of him being on the part of the ocean I was at the time I needed it the most. Thanks again for helping us. This experience has revived a little more hope in humanity that society is not what you see on social media where no one wants to help someone without it being posted first. He didn’t ask for a share, post, or video, but was ok with me posting if I wanted to. He helped the vacation not start on a bad note Happy wife, great vacation. More pictures and stories to come but this was the first of our great adventure on vacation this year.

Howard Metts contacted Robert Clarke Sunday evening, January 9th in regards to a lost diamond tennis bracelet in the sand on Clearwater Beach. Robert advised he could respond and contacted Leslie, the owner of the missing tennis bracelet, got her exact location on Clearwater beach and headed that way. Robert met Leslie and her son near Tower 1 on Clearwater beach where she explained while throwing a football around with her family she felt her diamond tennis bracelet come off. They were able to find SRARC and ringfinders thru the internet and called Howard. Smartly, Leslie stayed in the exact spot where she felt the bracelet come off. Robert started detecting at that spot and within one minute got a faint “1” signal on his Nox, took out his pin pointer and on the first sweep, the pin pointer hit the necklace, revealing it in the sand just below the surface. Leslie was overjoyed, crying with happiness, believing she would never see the necklace again and gave Robert a big hug and kiss on the check. Another successful SRARC jewelry recovery!

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!

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!

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 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!

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!
