I received a very anxious phone call from Janice on Wednesday. Janice just lost her wedding band on the beach and was about to come unglued. Janice told me how she had taken her ring off to apply sunscreen and placed it on the arm of her beach chair. Our local lifeguard then asked them to back up their chairs and umbrella so he could see the entire beach. During this process the ring hit the powder dry sand and quickly disappeared. They searched for about an hour in the 25′ square area with no luck. Janice did a web search on “How to find a lost ring in the sand” and found The Ring Finders Directory. She told me she had not left the beach and that she was not allowing anybody to sit in this area.

Arriving at the beach 30 minutes later I called Janice to let her know I was there. Looking down the beach I noticed people waving to me and rightly guessed that to be the anxious lady and her family. They had a 25′ square drawn in the sand and were ready for me to put a smile back on Janice’s face. I had them all rub their left earlobe for good luck and started to work. Searching from where the chairs were, back to their present location, I could see Janice fretting with each grid pass. Almost to the chairs I got that lovely tone in the phones. I told Janice that her ring was right there and asked her if she wanted to do the honors of uncovering it. Her husband Jerry looked on and encouraged her but she just couldn’t bare to look. I sent the scoop into the sand very carefully and lightly sifted the sand away to reveal her beautiful diamond encrusted white gold wedding band. The very ring that her husband Jerry placed on her finger 27 years ago. Janice came forward and took the ring from my hand and then commenced to do “The Ring Dance”. Tears, laughter and hugs, I love the ring dance. Vacation saved!

Janice and Jerry Thank you for the generous reward and trusting me to do this search. I wish you traveling mercies back to Cleveland Tenn. I wish you another happy 27 years.

Man’s Wedding Band Found and Returned! Myrtle Beach, SC

So this post has been needing to happen for a couple weeks now.

I woke up early Friday morning, with sleep still in my eyes, I noticed that I had a text message on my phone. Getting my first cup of coffee I also noticed that I had several severe weather alerts on my phone as we are under tornado warnings for most of the day. I looked at the text from Brittni explaining the loss of her husband Paul’s wedding band the day before. Paul was throwing a foot ball with son Connor. As Paul caught the football in the shin deep water he felt his wedding band fall off. As he saw the ring disappear with the next wave he realized the ring was gone. I called Brittni back and ended up with Paul on the line. They were schedule to fly back to Chicago that night, as this was the last day of their vacation. After checking the radar forecast I saw that we would have about an hour window between thunderstorms coinciding with a low tide. Perfect!

Driving to meet Paul, Brittni and Connor at the beach, it is dumping buckets. As I pulled into the appointed parking lot the heavens opened and the sun shown thru. After walking to the spot on the beach with the family I had them rub their left earlobe for luck. I began the grid search at the water’s edge. After a 45 minute search I got a great signal in ankle deep water. I missed the ring twice with the sand scoop as the target was deeper than I expected. The third try revealed Paul,s beautiful tungsten carbide wedding band in the scoop. As I walked from the water Paul and Brittni were moving toward me. I held out the scoop and had Paul remove his ring. “Let The Ring Dance commence! High fives, hugs and smiles all around. After a few pictures and some small chat we moved to our vehicles. As I drove out of the parking lot it began to rain again. The weather man was spot on. Paul was too as he put me on the location of his wedding band.

Paul and Brittni, Thank You for the generous reward and trusting The Ring Finders to help you.

Dreams of Warmer Days, White Gold Mens Wedding Band Found.

This blog story has been waiting for a few months to be written. As I write this, it is 32 degrees outside. Nobody, including me, is walking on the beaches of the Grand Strand. This morning I am dreaming of warmer days.

I got a phone call from Abraham the last week of August. Abraham had lost a 14kt white gold wedding band. Abraham and his lovely wife Rebecca were vacationing in Myrtle Beach. Abraham explained that they were riding jet skis launched from the beach at one of the rental areas along The Strand when he noticed his missing wedding band. My thoughts upon hearing this were, “Great! That ring could be anywhere, including a half mile out in the Atlantic Ocean”. Abraham went on to explain that as he was getting off of the jet ski he got tangle in the safety cut off switch lanyard. Abraham fell into the 2 feet of water. After righting himself he noticed that his wedding band was missing. He felt certain that that is where the ring came off. Abraham and Rebecca had returned home to the Philly area, but wondered if I could help.

After researching the tide cycles from the previous day, I felt like low tide at the waters edge was my best bet. I got to the beach of the jet ski rental and noticed that people were returning the skis in a 100 yard area. I asked one of the attendants if he was aware of the ring that was lost the day before. “Yea, somewhere out in that area” was not much help to me. I decided to work a smaller grid on the south end of this area to start, then expand the grid as needed. After working the grid for 20 minutes I got a great signal. It was actually the first signal I got. Abraham’s white gold wedding band shone brightly in the bottom of my sand scoop. As I was taking pictures of the ring on the back of one of the skis the attendant came to the realization that I had found the ring. Another attendant explained that he thought Abraham had left a reward at the rental office. I talked with the office to make sure Abraham did not leave any money on the table. What I found was a “promissory note” for a very handsome reward. I sent a text to Abraham, and a picture of his wedding band. His response came back after a few minutes, “I could just kiss you, and I don’t even know you”. I laughed and told him I would only accept a kiss from Rebecca. Abraham’s ring is now back on his finger in Philly, and all is right with the world.

Abraham, thank you for the reward. 15% has been donated the Shrine Children’s Hospital Road Runners.

Abraham and Rebecca Are Camera Shy.

Lost Engagement Ring in Myrtle Beach, Found! Who’s On First?

Tuesday morning, I was surfing the net and noticed a CL listing of a lost engagement ring in North Myrtle Beach. I called Jim Wren (TRF North Myrtle Beach).  I told Jim about the posting and he should look into it. The young lady was asking for help.  Jim told me he just got an email about a ring in NMB. As we talked we realized this was the same ring. Jim told me that he could not find the motel name in NMB, but there was one in Myrtle Beach. Jim waited for a phone call from Mandy, the young lady with the lost ring, for more details. Jim called me back and said it was lost in Myrtle and that I should take the search. Jim was the TRF contact so we left it at that and did the search together.

Mandy’s ring was lost at high tide four days ago, as she stood knee deep in a pounding shore break. A wave sent her for a loop. As she picked herself up she realized her ring was gone. With our area of description identified we began our search. Jim and I were each searching our own 30 x 50 yard grid as the tide was rising and eating beach area. It began to pour rain as we began. I brought a rain coat and hat but Jim did not. I passed a soaked Jim as I leap-frogged his grid and started another to his south. Jim leap-frogged me again, south. Jim was certain that the ring was not in the two hundred yards of beach that we covered, so north he went. Jim started working his north grid high on the slope. I was following behind Jim on the water line to where Jim worked his northern area. Concerned we were losing beach to the tide I stayed low on the beach and worked the water’s edge into shin deep water. About fifty paces into our northern area I got a nice signal on my CTX 30-30. I waited for the shore break waves to stop pounding the signal area and sent the scoop to the target. As I rinsed the scoop with the next wave, I could see the ring in the scoop. I nodded to Jim as I walked to dry sand. Did I say dry sand. Jim and I smiled and did “The Ring Dance” as we were soaked to the bone.Jim and I had both skipped lunch to do this search. Hungry, cold and wet we walked to a beachfront grill to find a dry area and something to eat.

Now, Jim and I have a running bet as to who finds the most TRF recoveries each year. This begs the question, how to figure this hunt into our scoreboard. Do we each get half, each one, me one, or Jim one? “Who’s On First?” I guess we will figure it out like gentlemen. The most important thing is that Mandy will have her engagement ring back on her finger when she says her vows next week. Jim is sending the ring back to a very happy young lady.

Mandy and James, You have started your marriage with luck on your side… All the best in the future.

Jim, you are a tenacious TRF recovery master. All the best to you as well.
