Brian was having a great Sunday Soccer game until he was headed home and noticed he no longer had his wedding ring. He returned to look for it and even considered renting a metal detector but then he discovered there was a club that offered to recover lost items. He sent an email and Mike Miller responded and then set up a hunt of the entire soccer field for the following Saturday morning. Paul Hill, Howard Metts, Elmer Stennes, and Mike showed up for the hunt. We hunted the entire field and after 3 hours Paul found the missing ring. Brian could not believe the dedication we had in searching for the ring and was very pleased with the result. As you can see by his smile he is very happy to have his wedding ring back on his finger. Way to go guy’s !!!!!!!!
Matt came to Florida from Kentucky for an extended family vacation. He was married here and had not been in the gulf since he was married 3 years ago. On his first morning here, he walked out to the beach and began tossing a football with his brother-in-law. One pass was high and he jumped to catch it. His sunglasses started to fall off as he fell into the water so he reached to save them. He was successful in saving his sunglasses, but when he looked he saw that his wedding ring was missing. He contacted SRARC and Mike Miller responded. Five hours of hunting later out came the ring. Matt was overjoyed as well as his wife and they said Mike had just saved their vacation. Always fun to see their smiles.
On Sunday, July 27, 2014, Keven (that’s how he spell’s it) and his wife Jessica Jones were at Redington Beach with some friends when he tried to catch a football with his ring hand and watched in slow motion as it flew off. Thought gone forever, Keven told his friends about his mishap. Lucky for Keven, It turned out Keven’s friends happen to be my neighbors daughter who immediately called my wife looking for me. Oddly enough i was already at that beach. I tried in very rough water that evening to find his ring, family heirloom passed down in his family, but no luck. Tried again on Thursday but too rough. We then got our crew of ring finders organized for one last try on Saturday morning in flat seas. Mike Miller, Howard Metz and Stan Flack gave it a go for about 45 minutes when Stan managed to get the ring under his coil and Keven was pulled from the dog house. High fives all the way around.
Denny and Ashley just moved down from New Hampshire last week when they decided to …take advantage of our beautiful beaches. Heading to Honeymoon Island seemed like the perfect spot. As Ashley was playing with their 2 and 6 year old children BOTH her engagement and wedding bands came off. Heartbroken she contacted SRARC and a team was established. (Howard Metts, Mike Miller, Paul Hill and Stan Flack) Taking the lead was Howard Metts…working with the Park Rangers he quickly received permission for us to hunt in the water. (normally off limits to metal detecting) Howard had worked the sand the evening before and was unable to find the rings. The team arrived just as a thunderstorm was about to hit. Within 20 mins. the lightning forced us to move to shelter. The team waited it out and 30 mins later were back at it. Three in the water and one working the wet sand. Within 10 mins Stan who was working the wet sand, signaled that the rings were recovered! Denny was astonished and elated that his wife’s rings were headed back to her. This could have been a devastating start to their new life down in the Sunshine State.
Thanks team! And welcome to Florida Denny and Ashley!
I received a call on Monday about a mans lost set a keys. He was helping a friend out while shoveling the snow from the driveway and lost them somewhere. I could not make for the next couple of days because the temperatures were down in the negative 20’s. So we meet up on a much warmer day. After searching for about thirty minutes about the driveway, there was the keys in the two foot high snow bank. He was very happy to have them back, which save him money into getting a new car key and he can use his gas discount card again.
