Sterling Silver with Blue Topaz Ring Found and returned Myrtle Beach
I had just landed back in Myrtle Beach after a 6-hour flight. I turned on my cell phone and found a very recent text message from Laura. She was seeking some help with finding her lost Sterling Silver ring with a Blue Topaz stone mount. Standing in the luggage claim I gave her a quick phone call. I asked her to give me a couple hours to get back home and unpack. I was certainly tired, but they were still on the beach when I called Laura again. I told her to meet me in 30 minutes at the beach access near her location.
I met Laura, Tarick and Evelyn on the beach with my gear ready to go to work. Laura explained that the ring was put in a shoe and that the shoe had been upended under their umbrella. The rest of the party had left the beach to clean up, but they left the umbrella in place to mark the spot of the lost treasure. The four of us walked to the area. We removed the umbrella, and I fired up My CTX 30-30. Within 2 steps I got a foil signal and removed the trash. I took 2 more steps and got the hi silver signal I wanted. As I scrubbed the surface of the sand with the coil it exposed the ring. Tarick was the first person to spot the ring and bent down to retrieve it. There was a subdued but happy ring dance. We hung out for a minute, but everybody present had had a long day. Still, it had a happy ending. That’s the goal and we succeeded.
