Gold and Diamond Wedding Ring Lost, Found and Returned in Bradenton, Florida

Diane found SRARC through the Ring Finders Web site a few days after her husband had lost his gold and diamond wedding ring while working on the Christmas decorations in the front yard. He had been moving the reindeer into an area full of small bushes. He first stumbled and fell into the bushes and then fell again onto the grass as he was leaving the bushes. When he finished, he walked a block away to the mailboxes, retrieved the mail, and returned home. Later that evening he noticed that his wedding band was missing. They looked all around where he had been with no luck so Diane began to look for help on the internet.

She called Tom as soon as she found SRARC and  Mike was dispatched to see if he could find the ring. After covering the bushes, the yard, and even the grass along the sidewalk to the mailboxes with no result, Mike decided to go over the front yard one more time. In about 10 feet he hit a good tone and sure enough there was the ring. Don’t know how he missed it the first time but was sure glad he decided to go over the ground a second time.

Diane and her husband were overjoyed to have his wedding band back on his hand in time for Christmas. Srarc wishes them a very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year!!!!!!

Wedding Ring Recovered on Anna Maria Island, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Aaron, Yvette, and family came to Anna Maria Island from Wesley Chapel on Friday to enjoy the long labor day weekend. All went well until Sunday. While Aaron was tossing a ball with his son Gus, He lunged for the ball and off flew his wedding ring. He had the good sense to stand right where he felt it come off, checked his location with landmarks on shore, and then counted the steps back to shore and marked his exit with a 5 gallon bucket. His brother-in-law found SRARC online and contacted us. Mike Miller was near the location searching for a different ring and was able to respond while the group was still at the beach. With such good directions from Aaron, Mike was able to find the ring in about 10 minutes. Both Aaron and Yvette were very happy to get the ring back and mentioned that coincidentally they had honeymooned twenty years ago just a few blocks from where he had lost his ring twenty years later. SRARC is happy we could put him on track again for another twenty years.

Wedding Ring Returned on Anna Maria Island, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Zoran was playing soccer with his buddies at the Anna Maria Community club when a pass came his direction. He reached out to block it and the ball hit his hand and bounced off. A few minutes later he realized his wedding ring was missing. One of the other guy’s mentioned to him that he saw a flash of something flying through the air when the ball had hit Zoran’s hand. They all stopped playing and got down on their hands and knees to search for the ring. No one could see it. The next day Zoran came back, climbed the fence and search again. He had no luck but one of his buddies said he knew someone who could help.

Zoran contacted Stan Flack who in turn contacted Mike Miller. Mike organized a hunt for Saturday morning and both Mike and Jerry Schneider showed up at the Community Club at 9:00 am. Zoran arrived a few minutes later and showed them the general location where the ring had been lost. Jerry and Mike went to work and about 10 minutes later Jerry called out “I got it!!!!”

Zoran was extremely happy and could not believe how quickly we found it. Congratulations team SRARC and especially to Jerry who has now recovered his first ring on a SRARC hunt.

Diamond Stud Earring Rescued from the Lawn in Parrish, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

“There is nothing like the original”
Quote by owner Mike
**************************************************************
This recovery is a little more special to one SRARC member.
Cameron was going to do her husband Mike a favor and mow the lawn for him since he has been so busy and she was heading out of town for a “girls weekend”. When she was finished, she headed into the house and heard something hit the kitchen floor. She was horrified to see the back of her diamond earring but not the earring itself. She looked frantically but was unable to find it anywhere. Thinking back, she recalled her hat being knocked off by a low hanging oak limb while she was mowing the lawn. The search was on again. After a week, she asked Mike to call Paul Hill, a good friend from their High School days who she knew did metal detecting. Mike called and caught Paul at nearby Holmes Beach in Anna Maria with fellow SRARC member Mike Miller. The beach was getting too rough to detect so after swinging by Mike Miller’s house to get a couple of different detectors they headed over to Mike and Cameron’s to begin the search. Now earrings are one of the hardest things to find since there is very little metal surrounding the stone. Unfortunately, Cameron had just dropped off the matching earring at the jeweler’s to get a replacement appraisal. This means that Mike and Paul didn’t have one to calibrate their detectors to such a small target. The hunt went on for about an hour and a half when Mike casually said…”I got it”. Wait…What? Of course a little teasing was in order since neither Cameron nor Mike were nearby to hear the good news. Hugs and high fives were flowing freely as the reality of what just happened settled in. When it was all said and done, Cameron was shedding tears of joy! Screw backs are in her future! Paul was extremely relieved to be able to have a successful recovery for such a dear friend!
Mike Miller and his Gold Bug were the team of the day!

Anna Maria Island Brand New Wedding Ring Recovered

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Josh and his wife Chelsea traveled to Anna Maria Island to be married on 2/19/2015. Two days after the wedding they and a few of the wedding party decided to kick back a little and spend some time at the beach. They were all having a great time laying in the sun and playing on the beach. Josh decided to go into the water and was out just deep enough to keep his head above water while doing a crab walk. He pushed his hands into the sand and as he moved forward and pulled his hands from the sand he felt his brand new wedding ring slip off. He called the group for help and they all looked and looked with no luck. Josh borrowed a rake and tried to see if he could dig it up. Still no luck. The next day he rented a metal detector and tried to find it but still had no luck. A young man noticed what Josh was doing and asked what the problem was. Josh explained what had happened and the young man replied that he could get someone to help with the recovery. He contacted Stan Flack who contacted Mike Miller. Mike was already headed toward Anna Maria Island and agreed to attempt a recovery. Mike and his son Jeffery meet Josh at the location and quickly went to work. After about half an hour Mike found the ring and returned it to an overjoyed Josh. As we walked out of the water with the ring held high the entire crowd on the beach burst into cheers and applause.

Josh of course was smiling ear to ear. We wish the best to both Josh and his bride. We hope they have a lifetime of happiness together.

Lost Wedding Ring Returned on Siesta Key, FL

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Brandon and his wife were launching a kayak off of his parent’s dock when all of a sudden his wedding ring slipped off into the water. They could see the ring sitting on top of the silt and decided to try and net it with the pool skimmer. When they dipped it in the silt was stirred up and the ring sank deeper into the muck. After the water cleared the ring was gone. They got some swim masked out and tried to relocate the ring, but no luck. Brandon’s Dad searched the internet for help and found us. Brandon called and we scheduled a search for the next morning at 9:00 am. Brandon had to go to work so we met his Mom at the site and within 1 minute we located the ring and returned it to his Mother. As you can see she was very happy!!!!.
