I got a call from Heather on a lost ring lost in the snow at a local law office. Heather was asking if I could help before a big snowstorm hits in a couple hours. Ended up driving to the law office to do the search. I asked the usual questions. What happened and what is the ring made of. She was closing the door on the car in cold weather and the ring went flying. Second question is what is the ring made of. Her reply was silver with 2 diamonds and a pearl.
She took me out to the search area in the parking lot. She had her car parked over the area so nobody would park in that area. The search area was about 10 feet by 10 feet. I scanned the area with the CTX3030 and got no silver signals. I had one nice gold signal, so, I went back to it and found the ring. I went inside to give her the ring and said we have one small problem. Your ring is not silver is 10k white gold. The whole office cheered that I had found the ring before the storm. I tried to get a picture of her with the ring but she refused. After some hard negotiating at the law office, I got a picture of her hand holding the ring.
Well the temperatures have finally gotten warm enough in the last week to get people back at the beaches in Northern Michigan.
My wife had told me about an Instagram post from one of her former co workers about loosing her wedding ring earlier in the day. I told my wife to send her a copy of my business card and see if she needed me to help. Anna responded right away saying she would be very grateful for any help. We got this figured out about 8:00 pm Saturday night. Anna had to go to work the overnight shift and could not communicate an exact location. Got a description of White gold and a Diamond with an antique look. I got a rough location and decided to go look Saturday night. I searched from 9:00 pm to 11:30 pm and no ring. Anna said she could meet me at 8:00 am the next morning and take me to the location. We met up and I got some better details on how she lost the ring. She had taken the ring off and placed it in a pocket in her swimsuit. When leaving for the day she got 1/2 way to the car and noticed the ring missing from the pocket. We met at 8:00 am and walked the 1/4 mile into the beach. Anna did a great job and got me within about 6 feet of the ring. My second target was the ring 3 inches down in the dry sand. Search time was about 10 minutes. I had not searched the area she was at the night before, I was about 40 feet away.
