Wade sent me an email in the early morning, actually 12:30 am. He had spent several hours searching the sands at the beach in front of the Montage Resort, Laguna Beach, CA.
His niece, Sydney had put her James Avery rings, a gift from her grandparents, in a pocket of her beach chair. She didn’t realize till they returned to their hotel room that the rings were missing.
I talked to Wade, who told me what had happened and that they would be leaving for the airport to fly back to Houston, Texas soon. We were able to meet the family on the beach an hour before they were to leave. Wade’s niece, Sydney was so upset that she could not leave her room. He put 4 items at the corners of what he thought was the location they were the day before.
I started the grid search in the center rotating to the outside. When I got to a tee shirt which marked one of the corners, there were two high tone signals right below the marker.. I knew it had to be the rings. One scoop in the sand proved to be the two unique rings.
The whole family was elated. Uncle Wade was a hero for staying awake the night before searching the Internet for TheRingFinders.com.
Another beautiful day and a happy family returning to Texas after great vacation on one of our most beautiful beaches here in Laguna Beach, CA.
Megan was with her son at Corona DelMar Beach. It was a large group of classmates from a local middle school. After less than an hour Megan realized that her platinum engagement ring was not on her finger. After a sleepless night she found my contact information on a internet search. She called me and we made arrangements to meet at the beach so I could hear her story and get a general location of where she thought it could be.
Megan didn’t feel the ring slip off her finger. It’s nice when somebody knows when the ring was lost but not always possible. We met at the beach and she showed me where she spent most of her time. It could have been dropped on the long walk across the beach from the parking lot. It’s a process of elimination. I would start with the area near the fire pits. Our only problem was, the beach was loaded with people with their beach awnings, blankets, etc.
I had all the information I needed. I returned at 4 hours later and did a grid search which turned out to be successful with Megan’s beautiful ring in my scoop. Sent her a text message with a photo of the ring.
Chris, Megan’s fiancé posted this on Craigslist..
