Purity Ring Lost, Found and Returned on Anna Maria Island

A Leadership conference group from the G5 Church in Davenport, Florida came down to Anna Maria Island for a day of rest and relaxation. Some of the young people were playing soccer in the warm sand when BreAnn fell down. When she got up, her hands were all covered with sand. (You know how it is when you have suntan lotion on and dip your hands into sand) She pulled her Purity ring off so she could get the sand out from under it and immediately dropped it into the sand. It of course disappeared. They all looked and looked with no luck. They started to sift the whole area with play plastic sand strainers and another member of the group went in search of a metal detector. He found a detector but they were not successful in finding the ring. Finally because the day was coming to an end and they needed to return to the Orlando area, Josana started looking on the internet for help. She found SRARC on the Ring Finders and contacted Tom Jones. Tom contacted Mike Miller and Mike headed down to the Island right away. When he arrived they showed him the area they had sifted (only about 6 sq. ft.) and he got ready to hunt. Two swings later he got the gold tone, leaned over and picked up the ring. It was in the pile of sand that they had sifted and one of the sifters was actually sitting on top of it.

BreAnn was overjoyed and the others were in shock that it was found so fast. They were all smiling and excited that BreAnn had her ring back. We had a round of hugs and then they were on their way home. I think they must have had a very happy ride home. It is always a pleasure for us at SRARC to be able to return special items to their owner.

Gold and Diamond Wedding Ring Lost, Found and Returned in Bradenton, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Gold and Diamond Wedding Ring Lost, Found and Returned in Bradenton, Florida

Diane found SRARC through the Ring Finders Web site a few days after her husband had lost his gold and diamond wedding ring while working on the Christmas decorations in the front yard. He had been moving the reindeer into an area full of small bushes. He first stumbled and fell into the bushes and then fell again onto the grass as he was leaving the bushes. When he finished, he walked a block away to the mailboxes, retrieved the mail, and returned home. Later that evening he noticed that his wedding band was missing. They looked all around where he had been with no luck so Diane began to look for help on the internet.

She called Tom as soon as she found SRARC and  Mike was dispatched to see if he could find the ring. After covering the bushes, the yard, and even the grass along the sidewalk to the mailboxes with no result, Mike decided to go over the front yard one more time. In about 10 feet he hit a good tone and sure enough there was the ring. Don’t know how he missed it the first time but was sure glad he decided to go over the ground a second time.

Diane and her husband were overjoyed to have his wedding band back on his hand in time for Christmas. Srarc wishes them a very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year!!!!!!

Wedding Ring Recovered on Anna Maria Island, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Aaron, Yvette, and family came to Anna Maria Island from Wesley Chapel on Friday to enjoy the long labor day weekend. All went well until Sunday. While Aaron was tossing a ball with his son Gus, He lunged for the ball and off flew his wedding ring. He had the good sense to stand right where he felt it come off, checked his location with landmarks on shore, and then counted the steps back to shore and marked his exit with a 5 gallon bucket. His brother-in-law found SRARC online and contacted us. Mike Miller was near the location searching for a different ring and was able to respond while the group was still at the beach. With such good directions from Aaron, Mike was able to find the ring in about 10 minutes. Both Aaron and Yvette were very happy to get the ring back and mentioned that coincidentally they had honeymooned twenty years ago just a few blocks from where he had lost his ring twenty years later. SRARC is happy we could put him on track again for another twenty years.

Wedding Ring Returned on Anna Maria Island, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Zoran was playing soccer with his buddies at the Anna Maria Community club when a pass came his direction. He reached out to block it and the ball hit his hand and bounced off. A few minutes later he realized his wedding ring was missing. One of the other guy’s mentioned to him that he saw a flash of something flying through the air when the ball had hit Zoran’s hand. They all stopped playing and got down on their hands and knees to search for the ring. No one could see it. The next day Zoran came back, climbed the fence and search again. He had no luck but one of his buddies said he knew someone who could help.

Zoran contacted Stan Flack who in turn contacted Mike Miller. Mike organized a hunt for Saturday morning and both Mike and Jerry Schneider showed up at the Community Club at 9:00 am. Zoran arrived a few minutes later and showed them the general location where the ring had been lost. Jerry and Mike went to work and about 10 minutes later Jerry called out “I got it!!!!”

Zoran was extremely happy and could not believe how quickly we found it. Congratulations team SRARC and especially to Jerry who has now recovered his first ring on a SRARC hunt.

Diamond Stud Earring Rescued from the Lawn in Parrish, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

“There is nothing like the original”
Quote by owner Mike
**************************************************************
This recovery is a little more special to one SRARC member.
Cameron was going to do her husband Mike a favor and mow the lawn for him since he has been so busy and she was heading out of town for a “girls weekend”. When she was finished, she headed into the house and heard something hit the kitchen floor. She was horrified to see the back of her diamond earring but not the earring itself. She looked frantically but was unable to find it anywhere. Thinking back, she recalled her hat being knocked off by a low hanging oak limb while she was mowing the lawn. The search was on again. After a week, she asked Mike to call Paul Hill, a good friend from their High School days who she knew did metal detecting. Mike called and caught Paul at nearby Holmes Beach in Anna Maria with fellow SRARC member Mike Miller. The beach was getting too rough to detect so after swinging by Mike Miller’s house to get a couple of different detectors they headed over to Mike and Cameron’s to begin the search. Now earrings are one of the hardest things to find since there is very little metal surrounding the stone. Unfortunately, Cameron had just dropped off the matching earring at the jeweler’s to get a replacement appraisal. This means that Mike and Paul didn’t have one to calibrate their detectors to such a small target. The hunt went on for about an hour and a half when Mike casually said…”I got it”. Wait…What? Of course a little teasing was in order since neither Cameron nor Mike were nearby to hear the good news. Hugs and high fives were flowing freely as the reality of what just happened settled in. When it was all said and done, Cameron was shedding tears of joy! Screw backs are in her future! Paul was extremely relieved to be able to have a successful recovery for such a dear friend!
Mike Miller and his Gold Bug were the team of the day!

Engagement Ring Lost Then Returned at Bahia Beach, Ruskin, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Melissa decided to that the kids to Bahia Beach to get them out before it got too hot. As she was packing things up to leave for lunch she went to the water edge to rinse off some beach toys. After packing all their things away she notice that her engagement ring was missing from her finger. She went through the beach bags, clothing and towels but the ring was not there. She began searching the sand but not luck finding the ring. She called her husband to break the bad news. He immediately got on the computer and found Theringfinders. Tom Jones called Melissa who was still at the beach and arranged to meet her there.

Tom arrived and started hunting the water area where Melissa said she washed off the toys which would be the most likely spot to lose the ring. After 20 minutes hunting and no ring, Tom started searching the dry sand from where her beach chair was down to the water. After two passes Tom looked over to Melissa and said, “Wow! You weren’t kidding when you said it was a nice big ring. At that time she ran over and broke out in tears of joy and said, “You don’t know how much this ring means to me.” She then gave Tom a big hug.

Engagement Ring Recovered at Coquina Beach, Bradenton Beach, FLorida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Dianna, her fiancée Robby and three friends were out at Coquina Beach on Sunday evening to watch the sunset and play in the surf.  They were out about waist deep tossing a football when the ball came Dianna’s way. As she lunged to catch it she felt her engagement ring fly off. They all searched frantically for a couple hours but could not find it. The next morning Dianna found SRARC tagged on Facebook and clicked onto our website. She called Mike Miller and he scheduled a hunt for later that day. Tom Jones, Ed Osmar and Mike came together and met with Dianna at the beach at 2:00 pm. Dianna gave them the story and laid out the location she thought they should hunt. The group went to work and about 10 minutes later Mike found the ring right in the area Dianna had specified. When Tom gave her the thumbs up she could not believe it. We were just as happy returning her ring to her as she was to have it back on her finger. Just another great day at the beach with smiles all around.

Anna Marie Island Gold and Diamond Wedding Rings Lost then Recovered

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

David and Jennifer were down from Virginia on a mini vacation and house hunting trip. While relaxing one evening at sunset Jennifer was in the water and David tossed her a ball. The ball landed just in front of her and she plunged her hand into the water to get it. She felt her wedding set fly right off her finger. She called to David for help but just then a big wave slammed into her and moved her away from where she had lost the rings. They looked until after dark but had no luck finding them. Both David and Jennifer are Gulf war veterans and while stationed in Iraq someone had stolen her first wedding set and now losing another set was just devastating. Jennifer started searching the internet for help and soon found SRARC on the Ring Finders site. She called Tom who called Mike and we set up a meet time and search for 7:00 am the next morning. Mike went right to work when he got there and searched for about an hour and a half before hitting the target he was looking for. He flipped a “thumbs up” toward the beach and got two great big smiles in return. It was a pleasure to meet both David and Jennifer and I want to offer them a big “Thank You” for their service to our country. It gave me a great big smile to be able to serve them in a small way. I look forward to hooking up with them again after they have relocated to Florida.

Anna Maria Island Brand New Wedding Ring Recovered

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Josh and his wife Chelsea traveled to Anna Maria Island to be married on 2/19/2015. Two days after the wedding they and a few of the wedding party decided to kick back a little and spend some time at the beach. They were all having a great time laying in the sun and playing on the beach. Josh decided to go into the water and was out just deep enough to keep his head above water while doing a crab walk. He pushed his hands into the sand and as he moved forward and pulled his hands from the sand he felt his brand new wedding ring slip off. He called the group for help and they all looked and looked with no luck. Josh borrowed a rake and tried to see if he could dig it up. Still no luck. The next day he rented a metal detector and tried to find it but still had no luck. A young man noticed what Josh was doing and asked what the problem was. Josh explained what had happened and the young man replied that he could get someone to help with the recovery. He contacted Stan Flack who contacted Mike Miller. Mike was already headed toward Anna Maria Island and agreed to attempt a recovery. Mike and his son Jeffery meet Josh at the location and quickly went to work. After about half an hour Mike found the ring and returned it to an overjoyed Josh. As we walked out of the water with the ring held high the entire crowd on the beach burst into cheers and applause.

Josh of course was smiling ear to ear. We wish the best to both Josh and his bride. We hope they have a lifetime of happiness together.

Platium and Diamonds recovered at Anna Maria Island, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Ed Osmar and Rick Magyar, were  metal detecting on Anna Maria Island at Holmes Beach. Ed went North, Rick went south. Soon Rick was approached by a woman and asked if he could look for a lost ring. ($1000.00 reward if found). Rick went to get Ed and get his wet suit out of the car so he could go in deep water.  Ed went in shallow water. Fifteen minutes later the ring was found by Ed.  About 2 hours later the ring was returned to the owner’s mother-in-law. She was prepared to give us a check for $1000.00.  We would not accept the gift; however we did suggest she might make a donation to our club, Suncoast Research and Recovery Club, if she wished. It turns out that she was the mother-in-law of the owner so we texted a picture of the ring to the owner so that he could identify it as the one he lost. Needless to say, he was quite happy! She will be returning the ring to the owner who lives in Michigan.

We at SRARC are very proud of both Rick and ED for a great recovery.
