I recently got out to look for a ring for a client at Marina Beach Park in Ventura after Hurricane Kay had blown through. I was hopeful that some sand had moved and I would be able to locate their ring. I got a target signal in the wash at the tide line and instead of a ring I scooped up a Medic Alert bracelet for an individual named Kellen with Diabetes. These bracelets are designed to talk for those who can’t when they are experiencing a potentially deadly medical episode. There was a name on the back so when I got home I decided to do some investigating to see if I could reunite it with it’s owner.
I began my search and I matched the name with both a Twitter and instagram account so I sent a DM to each and in 24 hours I got the response I had hoped for, I had found Kellen’s medic alert bracelet and I scheduled a time to meet up and return it to him. Jewelry is often purchased to display beauty and in this case it was as a life saving device and I was so glad to return it to Kellen. If you have lost an important item don’t hesitate to call or text me at 805-290-5009 anytime because the time to search for it is now.
I got a call this Sunday afternoon from Bonnie who asked if they could rent a metal detector to find a wedding ring lost in the sand at Surfers point in Ventura. When I explained that she would be better off having me come out to try and locate the ring she agreed and I was out the door on my way to Surfers Point. Surfers point is a popular place to surf and windsurf across from the Ventura County Fairgrounds. When I arrived there seemed to be 30 windsurfers in the water taking advantage of the wind at the point. After I met up with everyone it became quite clear that the wind also played a part in the ring getting lost.
The ring had been placed in the cup holder beneath a cell phone in a fold up chair. Unfortunately the chair was positioned just so it could take advantage of a gust of wind and as luck would have it, the wind came up and picked up the chair, the phone and the wedding ring and threw them across the beach. I outlined an area to begin my search and began gridding the area. First target was a tiny piece of junk and then about 30 seconds later I got a solid 9-10 on my Minelab Equinox, sunk in my scoop and pulled the ring out. A quick confirmation from everyone confirmed we had it and the ring and it’s story was safe. Another happy ending for Ventura County Metal Detecting Services and the family. This is the best job anyone can have!
