Lost Keys .. Newport Beach, CA. .. Found in the sand
Saturday, March 15, 2014
It has been a while sense I recieved a call to find a lost item. The weather has been beautiful in So. Calif. I’m sure that people have a need for our service but people are still learning about The RingFinders.
This morning I recieved a call from Glen. He had found me through a Google link that showed up when he tried to find a metal detector for rent. His nephews Mark and Mat were visiting from Germany and Glen had lent them his car. They went to Newport Beach Friday evening to look at the waves while watching the sunset. When they returned to the car the keys were not in Mark’s back pocket. It was dark making it difficult to find the keys. These were the only set of keys. The car had to be towed home and they were looking at possibly paying as much as $300 to have a new set made.
I live only 4 miles away so I was able to meet Uncle Glen Saturday about 11:30 am at the general location. Mark and Mat would not be able to get to our location till after 1:00pm. I decided to search the towel line before too many people took over the search area. After the nephews arrived I asked them if they had been doing any activities that would cause them to lose the keys. They had only walked 200 yards from their parking lot to the top of the dry sand ( which is know as the towel line ). We all walked to the area they believed they were sitting. I could see where I had already searched and I had only 15 or 20 feet from this spot. Within 3 minutes we had the keys. It does help to have good directions. I still enjoyed the hunt. Everybody was so happy and they will be able to enjoy their vacation. I was happy that the keys were not dropped in that 200 yard walk from the car to the place they were sitting. It was a pleasure to help these guys and the people on the beach were also very co-operative.
