got a call from Alyssa just before sunset. She had put her ring in her bag but as they get ready to leave the beach her ring cant be found. A friend of hers had used us TheRingFinders last summer and she remembered the story. I headed stright down as this was a dry sand loss. After gridin the area two time I called in my partner in case I missed it. He grids the area but nothing. Her friends start useing feet to move sand in area and I try one more time and bingo, there it be.
White tiny gold is the hardest to find but we werent leaveing till we found it. Team work by TheRingFinders
I got a voice mail from Frank about a lost gold wedding ring in the water. I called him right away to set up a meet.
I decided to go alittle early cause low tide would be late. We met about 6:00 pm and I told Frank and his family might be 8 pm before I get it. They went for walk around town while I started to grid into waist deep water.
- Total search aprox one hour from the time I got there but 15 min after they went to town. I called Frank and said I got something for you. You could hear in his voice the excitement. So I went to my truck and drove to the parking lot to meet up for the return and the smile picture for the book of Smiles. Read the rest of this entry »
I got a call for a ring set lost yesterday at the beach but they didnt know where. I went stright down to meet them and check what I could. She thought might have come off digin sand crabs with grandkids. After gridin the wet with nothing found we moved up in the masses of people. Not there either. Then the son says I think we might have been where those people are packing up. Ok lets check it.
2 or 3 passes I get one of the two lost so I know the other is close by. Yep, aprox 4/6′ away and there is number two. Another happy family here on vacation no with big smiles.
Got a call from a man who said I lost my ring on the beach, can you help me.?
I will do my best. Ask all the questions and head down to meet him. As we walk down he says he thinks its about a 10’x10′ area. After 4 or 5 passed I get it. A beautifull heavy Gold wedding band. Another ring saved and another smile made. Read the rest of this entry »
Got a lost ring call in the middle of saying goodby to a dear friend. Can u come right now? No but I will be down in 1 1/2 hrs. One hr later, can u come now ? So we were almost done so I said I would be there in 20 min.
I get to an over crowded beach and find parking, grab the PI and water scoop and head over. I am met half way by a very sad man. Its in the water, do you think there’s a chance of finding it ? Hell yes knee deep, no problem…
As I start my search there are a ton of people coming over to watch. He shows me where he was, or thinks he was. After about 10 min Im looking at tide line and I start working into the ankle deep area and low and behold, bang.. I scoop it and walk outa the water, turn to him and ask, Whats it look like… he he. ( YEP ) here you go.
Cheers from the crowd make it really cool, as we walk thru to our cars I hear, Great Job “RingFinder ”
I LOVE THIS FEELING.
Today walkin down the beach detecting a lady asked, can u find keys in the water. How deep? She told me the story of droping them in her top. Oh my, thats not a key holder.. I asked if they were stranded or were gona stay awhile. She said no we are here for a while so I went detecting for one hour and came back.
Went and changed into shorts and marked off the area. Started at knee deep and worked in.
About 10 min I got them, they were 6″ deep already cause sand is soft there.
Such a quick meet, hunt and return that I got a pic but cant remember her name. Hope she checks later for the story and adds her name. Its a good day. Read the rest of this entry »
