A gentleman by the name of Brett called me and said that his wife had just lost her engagement and wedding rings in the water while swimming at Fair Haven Beach. I jumped into my car and met them at the beach and this video shows the successful hunt for her rings.
Tuesday evening, 5:00 p.m. and my phone rings. It’s a young man name Dylan who says that while he and his family were swimming etc. at Fair Haven Beach and park on Lake Ontario, his Aunt lost her wedding band and engagement rings while sitting on the lake shore very close to the water. They had been hunting for the rings for 1 hour and was about to give up when they contacted the life guard. She (the life guard) suggested that they call me and that I would most likely be able to find the lost rings. I told Dylan that I would pack up my equipment and be there at the beach in about 1 hour. Dylan and his family were about to leave, so I told him to do so and I would get to the beach, do my search and call them when I found his Aunt’s ring.
When I arrived the life guards had marked off the area, so I search the dry sand, but the Aunt’s rings were not there. I then stepped into the water thinking that most likely a wave had come ashore, caught the rings and washed them out to the first wave break. I walked about 4 feet when my detector sounded out with that low, deep sound that told me that there was a gold ring under the coil. I had too take two scoops but up came the wedding band. GREAT, but where was the engagement ring. I swung the coil again and move forward about 18 inches and there was another low, deep sound. This time the ring was down about 8 inches so it took me 4 scoops but up came the engagement ring. BINGO I had both rings.
I called Dylan on his cell phone and told him that I had both rings, and he said that they were in downtown Fair Haven and going to a diner to eat supper. I told them that I would meet them there.
Dylan’s Aunt was very happy to get her rings back, and now she can tell the story of how her rings decided to spend some extra time soaking up the sun and sand on Fair Haven beach in 2020. LOL
Thank you Dylan, your Aunt and the whole family for the very generous finders reward.
