Evan was tossing the football while standing in waist-deep water at Honeymoon Island Beach. He went to twist his wedding band between his fingers, which he has a habit of doing, and discovered the band was not there! Evan did his best to find the ring, but his efforts fell flat. A couple of weeks later, Evan learned about SRARC and the Ringfinders. He contacted club president Howard Metts, and a hunt was set up. Evan watched as Howard, Dimitur Alipiev and Ed Osmar gridded the area with their detectors while getting pounded by the high tide and big waves. The first attempt was not successful, so Howard scheduled a second hunt after the surf calmed down and the tide was low. Once again Evan was there for moral support. This time Howard was joined by Mike Shuler. The two worked carefully around the big rocks that covered the area and after a little over an hour, Mike had the ring in his scoop! Evan was ecstatic to have his sentimental ring back, and immediately contacted his wife to share the good news!

Ring Recovery On Honeymoon Island State Park

Audrey was visiting with her inlaws and went to the beach on Honeymoon Island State Park and realized her wedding ring was missing when she was leaving. Her father inlaw Mike was with her and alerted the park ranger who had them call Howard Metts to help.

The next day Howard Metts and Dimitur Alipiev met (Mike) at the beach. Audrey was in the water throwing a ball when the ring slipped off her finger. After about an hour of searching, Dimitur Alipiev heard a good target and came up with the ring. Mike watched us coming in from the water and assumed we were giving up the search. Upon seeing the ring he was amazed we could find it after a day in the water and very Greatful. Howard texted a picture to a very happy Audrey who was on her way home to North Carolina. Great job Dimitur on the recovery!

Camper Loses Chain And Crucifix On Anclote Island

Andrew was camping on Anclote Island with friends when he discovered his gold chain with crucifix his grandfather had given him was missing.

When he got home he told mom who was able to find the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club Ringfinders blog. His mother sent an email requesting help from the club and was contacted by Howard Metts.

Howard and Ed Osmar met Andrew, his mother, and friends that supplied a boat to get us out to the island. About 30 minutes into the hunt Andrew spotted the chain sticking out of the sand, however the crucifix was not with it. Ten minutes later Howard Metts got a good signal and came up with the crucifix. Mom and Andrew were very grateful for the recovery.

Young assistant recovers lost ring in Clearwater Beach.

Arizona couple, Michael and his wife Katlyn, were spending vacation time in Clearwater Beach.  While tossing a ball in the water at the hotel’s private beach, Katlyn dove for the ball and sadly watched her wedding band fall off into the water. Michael found our club online and contacted Tom Jones, who passed on the information to Howard Metts. Howard called Michael and set up a time to meet before they left for the airport.

Howard started hunting in the area he was directed to hunt in (chest to neck deep water) and retrieved three targets, but not the ring.  Connor, who was visiting from Michigan with his family, was swimming in the search area with goggles.  After an hour of hunting and just before Mike and Kat were to leave for home, Connor popped up and said “is this what your looking for”?  In his hand was the ring Howard had been searching for!  Mike and Kat were very grateful for Howard’s efforts and to young Connor for coming up with the ring.  Nice work, Connor! You may have just found yourself a lifetime hobby, too!   Thanks for helping.

Nicole and Darren were playing catch in the water on Honeymoon Island, enjoying the Fourth of July weekend. Darren had his ring hand in the water and threw the ball with the opposite hand. After a time, the platinum wedding band slid off his hand into the water.  Nicole helped him search for the ring, to no avail.   Nicole found the SRARC website on her phone and contacted Howard Metts, to see if he could help. After receiving permission from the park ranger, Howard Metts and Dimitur Alipiev met Nicole and Darren at the beach and three hours later, started the search for the ring. The hunt lasted for over an hour before Howard finally found a good target, which turned out to be the ring! Darren and Nicole were overjoyed and very appreciative of SRARC and their volunteers for finding their cherished ring. Nicely done, Howard & Dimitur!
