I received a phone call on Tuesday from Brandy. She was obviously panicking as she told me she just lost her expensive platinum and diamond engagement ring. She asked if I would travel to Huntington Beach State Park to help her locate her ring that she just dropped into the powder dry sand. I told Brandy that I would be there in 30 minutes. After postponing an appointment, I was on my way.

I arrived at the beach to find a distraught Bandy informing me that the ring would be in that pile of sand between two chairs. After moving the chairs I scanned the appointed pile of sand and did not get a response. I said “The ring is not there” as I could feel Brandy’s, and everybody else in the family, anxieties rise. I quickly started looking in another direction, and just a few feet away was a nice low tone on the CTX 30-30. There it is! I carefully sent my sand scoop into the sand and missed the target. Just before I went to scoop again a niece lying nearby waved me off as she could see the ring just inside the hole I just made. Handing the ring to Brandy, she immediately put her hands on her knees trying to regain her composure. “The Ring Dance”. This week marks Brandy’s and husband Kris’ 1 year anniversary. Happy Anniversary!

Men’s White Gold and Diamond Wedding Band Found and Returned in Myrtle Beach

I received an urgent email from Julia on Tuesday about a lost ring in the ocean. Julia did not leave a phone number, so I emailed back. I got a return phone call from her about 6:30 that night. She put her brother Bailey on the phone as he was the owner of the lost ring. Julia is a local and was being visited by her brother. Bailey was referred to me by a local life guard named Hanna. I made arrangements to meet Bailey at 7:30 in the morning for the next low tide.

I arrived at the beach and Bailey was already there. He told me how he and his son were boogie boarding the day before near high tide. He told me how a wave crushed him into the bottom and jerked the board from his hands. He told me he saw the ring come off and land into the running surf. We joked about it happening in slow motion like Frodo’s ring glistening in the sun as it flew through the air. Bailey put me in a good location for the lost ring and I started a 50 yard wide grid running parallel to the surf. I thought I would find his wedding band around the low tide water line, but I started about mid slope to quickly eliminate that as a search area. On my third pass in the grid search I got a beautiful mid tone in the phones of my Excalibur II. One scoop of sand at 4 inches and I had his diamond encrusted wedding band in the scoop. Bingo I said as I plucked it out of the sand scoop and handed it to him. He stared at it for a moment and then exclaimed “That’s Amazing”. Bailey then told me he had not told his wife that he had lost his wedding band. The ring’s story gets to continue, hopefully for another 14 years on his finger. Another happy ending.

 

Bailey, I wish you well on your return to Texas. Thank you for the generous reward. I hope the shoulder heels up soon.

Lady’s Lovely Engagement Ring Found and Returned in Myrtle Beach

I started the morning off as usual checking emails and text messages on Tuesday morning. I noticed an email on my phone. Daniela reached out to me for some help locating her white gold engagement ring that she lost on Sunday. She left a phone number that was for her office in Connecticut. I left a voice mail, then sent her an email as well. That was probably a good thing as I was under the assumption that she had returned home from her vacation in Myrtle Beach. Daniela called me back shortly afterwards and explained all the incidentals to the loss of the ring. Daniela lost her ring in the shallow water near high tide. I explained with confidence that I should be able to locate this ring if it has not already been found by another metal detectorist.

I arrived at the location that afternoon around 1:30 to chase the last hour of a falling tide. When I spoke with Daniela earlier in the day, I told her to rub her left earlobe and say a prayer around 2:00. I mentally pictured the search area as 80 yards by 25 yards to the water’s edge. I ran the 80 yard grid line leaving a heavy mark in the sand with my sand scoop. I turned around to walk the 80 yards back, 5 feet from the last grid line, making sure to overlap my swing pattern. On the return path there was a lady digging a large hole in the sand to create a tidal pool for her little children. I joked with her about finding lost treasure as I passed by. I was about 10 feet past her when I got that beautiful mid tone in the earphones of the Excalibur II. Sending the scoop to the target and dumping the contents onto the beach the lady digging the hole watched intently. I kicked the sand to spread it out. As I did this lovely engagement ring jumped from the sand pile and bounce across the sand. As I picked up the engagement ring I audibly said to myself “This is why we do what we do”. The lady digging the hole in the sand asked what I meant by that. I explained to her what I was doing and why I was there. I then told her about the wonderful group called The Ring Finders and what it has done to help people all over the world be reunited with the precious treasures that they thought were gone forever. I called Daniela from the parking lot near my truck and asked if she indeed rubbed her earlobe for luck. As she told me that she had, I told her it must have worked because I had her engagement ring in my pouch. She told me that she would be right down to meet me. Again, I thought she had returned back home. It was a lovely surprise to be able to hand this ring back to her in person. As we talked, I sent her husband David a text with a picture of the ring. I told him that I just proposed to Daniela. She was excited to say the least as she stared at the ring on her shaking hand. The Ring that her husband David placed there 12 years ago. With Daniela, David and daughter Lexi’s vacation saved, I left the beach with a smile. Daniela, thank you for the opportunity to help you with this ring search, and thank you for the generous reward. I wish you and your family “Traveling Mercies” back to Connecticut.

Man’s Gold Wedding Band Returned In Myrtle Beach, SC

I picked up my phone Thursday morning to see a missed call. I listened to a message left by Debbie explaining that her husband Gary lost his yellow gold wedding band on the beach during a walk the day before. I phoned her back to get the particulars and the location.

I met Debbie and Gary at their condo in Myrtle Beach later that day. As we walked to the beach I listened to Gary explain that while walking on the beach he felt his wedding band slip from his finger. He told Deb what just happened. As they searched the powder dry sand in the area they were coming to the conclusion that it was becoming an impossible task. They were both heart sick that the wedding band that had been on Gary’s finger for 34 plus years was possibly gone forever. I assured both of them that if the ring had not been picked up by another metal detectorist we should find the wedding band in short order. we all rubbed our left earlobe for Ring God luck and I set to work with my trusted CTX 30-30. Working thru the 10 yard by 30 yard area I was not getting any signals. I started working a circle around the original area. On the second pass around the grid I heard what we were looking for. I didn’t think the numbers were that good, but sent the sand scoop to the target anyway. Behold! Gary’s ring shown bright in the bottom of the scoop. I removed the gold prize and asked them if they had really rubbed their earlobes for luck. While I was holding Gary’s band up for them to see they were too busy assuring me that they did, not noticing that I had the ring. Then it happened, “The Ring Dance” of tears, hugs, laughter and sighs of relief. We talked on the way back to their home. I was told about the 34 plus years and the meaning of that wedding band to both of them. Years of raising children, nursing, a military career, and time spent as a Sky Marshal after 9/11. That wedding band had years of story attached to it. I’m glad I could help continue that story.

Gary And Deb Thank You for the generous reward, and the opportunity to meet two great people.
