Lost wedding ring while playing in the pool, Altamonte Springs, Florida….Found with metal detector and returned to owner!
Eric and his son were relaxing in their pool and decided to hit a volleyball back and forth to each other. Eric’s heavy platinum wedding ring was a little loose on his finger but he figured he would be just fine. As they finished up Eric noticed his hand felt different and looking down he realized his wedding ring was gone! He thought more than likely it fell off into the pool so they proceeded to search the pool bottom but NO RING! Next was the thick grassy area alongside the pool and they looked that area over a few times, even trying to use an app that one can access on your phone, but NO RING! By this time it was getting later on into the evening and his next thought was to buy or rent a metal detector and then figure out how to set it up and decipher the sounds that it emits. Having shared his situation with his family it was his mother who found theringfinders.com web site and sent Eric my number.
I showed up early to search for Eric’s lost wedding ring and as I looked the search area over I hoped and prayed his ring did not land in the canal as it looked like prime snake and alligator habitat. I began with the thick grassy area and after 10 minutes or so it was obvious it had not landed there. I moved to a concrete planter that ran the length of the yard and came up empty there as well. Next was a small grassy strip on the back side of the planter that I needed to go over before going into the murky waters of the canal. About half way along the small strip I got a sharp signal, loud and promising, and there was Eric’s lost wedding ring laying in the grass! Eric was stunned and could not imagine how it landed there but as we looked it over it was quite obvious that it had flown through the flowers and landed softly on the other side of the planter.
I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to help Eric and I am ready and waiting to help others who find themselves in the same predicament. Call or text, ASAP!
