Lost Wedding Ring Found with Metal Detector in Haitaitai, Wellington, New Zealand
Nathan and Joanna have only been married for 3 weeks and Nathan’s ring was a little bit big for his finger. Although meaning to get it resized it was one of those things he hadn’t got around to doing.
Last night he was at a small park in Hataitai shooting some hoops with a basketball. He felt the ring come off his finger but in the failing light he was unable to find it in the grass.
Returning the next morning he could still not find it and a short time later I met him at the park.
The basketball hoop was mounted on very short grass but backed on to a bank covered in longer grass and weeds. There was a lot of metal trash in the ground and I wasn’t having any success. I got Nathan to show me, again, where he had been and to demonstrate the shot. I could see that there was a possibility that the ring could have flung off behind him.
It was only a few minutes later that I got a good signal in the longer grass. I used my handheld pinpointer and finally found the ring right down on the roots of the grass. Very satisfying as it would have been impossible to find this without a metal detector.
