Disney Earring Lost at Watch Hill Beach, Westerly RI… Found!

from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)
Contact: 1-252-775-1307

Surf lessons turned ugly when an 8-year-old lost her Disney earring. Jeff was teaching his daughter how to surf on a sunny evening at Watch Hill Beach just outside of the Ocean House. Unknown to Jeff, the daughter’s friend must have placed an earring on top of the surf board near a large piece of driftwood. By the time Jeff grabbed the board, it was already too late, the earring was lost in the sand. Losing a Disney earring can quickly suck the fun out of any activity. I know this because this is the second time I have found a lost Mickey Mouse earring from the “The Happiest Place On Earth” and the owners are always heartbroken when the loss happens.

I was hired by another beach-goer to search the surf for a lost engagement ring when Jeff approached me with the story of the child’s lost earring. Luckily Jeff had the other earring so I was able to run a test and identify the metal detector tone of the lost earring. Once I was familiar with the tone, I started to search. The pressure was on as the 8-year-old children watched my every move. Searching around large piece of driftwood where the surfers hang out, I was holding the lost Disney earring within the first couple of minutes of searching. The group of onlookers were in shock. They felt the likelihood of finding such a small lost item in the sand was low, which is what made the surprise so special.

“An 8-year-old placed an earring on my surf board without telling me and I moved my surfboard. Fortunately, Keith was in the area and volunteered his services to help the child that lost the earring. The greatest joy when it was found was by me since I am the one that dragged my daughter’s friend to the beach and I felt responsible for the lost earring. We had given up when Keith came by and tracked it down in about 5 minutes. A happy ending to a stressful surf session” – Jeff

LOST WEDDING BAND IN LAKE CHARLES, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

Susan called to ask for help in finding her husband’s lost tungsten wedding band.  It was slung off his wet finger a month before when opening their camper door. Carrie and I left the next day for the 70 mile trip. On arriving, we found the grassy search area to be small in the RV lot. We began the search of the lot. Next to the grassy area was a fenced area for a water system. Sid hunted the fenced area facing the RV. After 2 hours of searching and re-searching the yard and rock driveway, we had not found the ring. Susan, Carrie and Sid had gathered up near the rear side of the water system to discuss the next step when Carrie saw a sparkle from the rocks around the water system. In plain view laying on the rocks was the ring. Lost items are not always where you expect them to be. After the happy trio took pictures, we were on our way back home. Thank you, Susan, for your generous reward.

LOST ENGAGEMENT RING IN BREAUX BRIDGE, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

After Brennon and Alyssa rode their 4 wheeler along the muddy trails, they decided to call it a day. They parked at the area used to wash off the four wheelers and themselves. While washing her hands with a hose, Alyssa felt her engagement ring slip off her finger. They and other riders hunted for it from 8 PM till midnight with no success. The next morning they returned with a newly purchased metal detector to continue the hunt. After finding only foil, pennies and pop tops, Brennon looked at a YouTube video for hunting hints. He saw a “The Ring Finders” decal on a car in the video and went to our website. We got the call from Brennon on Sunday morning. Carrie and I were able to load our equipment and be on site in 1 ½ hours. The hunt area was relatively small but had quite a lot of trash. It was hard bottom with dead matted grass covered by 2 to 4 inches of mud. After 20 minutes of getting everything, including us, covered in mud, Carrie found the ring, tangled in the grass, under the mud. After some happy tears and pictures (and washing off mud from us and our equipment) we were heading home feeling great after reuniting Alyssa with her beautiful ring.

Thank you for your generous reward. Best wishes for a long and happy life together.
