Patrick and his family were down to Longboat Key from Toronto, Canada for a short winter break. The whole group was out on the sand and Patrick was tossing a football back and forth with his dad when he realized his Wedding ring was missing. They all looked through the sand and raked the area that they had been playing but could not find it. Someone walking along the beach suggested they look online for help and as soon as Patrick googled “Metal Detecting Service”, SRARC ring finders popped up. Patrick called Joe Szemer and Joe called Mike Miller. Mike set up an appointment to meet at the site. Patrick laid out the area he thought the ring would be in and after about 20 minutes Mike found the ring. There were lots of smiles and now the rest of the vacation can be enjoyed with no bad memories.

Kyle and Ally were down from Nashville to Longboat Key visiting with Kyles mother for a few days. They were out on the beach enjoying the sun and surf. Kyle and a friend were tossing a football around. At one point, Kyle was standing on shore ready to hike the football to his friend who was out in the water. As he hiked the ball he felt his wedding ring fly off. He didn’t know how far it flew but they all searched along with volunteers from the beach. After several hours they gave up and Ally searched and found SRARC ring finders. She explained the situation to Joe Szemer and Joe contacted Mike Miller. Mike made arrangements to meet and he arrived that afternoon. The water was rough and hunting became very difficult and Mike had to stop. Mike said he would return the next morning when the water had settled down. The next morning he went to work and soon the sound of gold was ringing in his ears. Up came the missing wedding ring and Kyle and Ally were full of excitement and smiles. It is always a pleasure to be a part of bringing smiles to peoples faces.

Erin was down from Maryland with her husband and friends on Longboat Key for a winter break. They had packed up and headed to the beach for a nice day in the sun. As they were setting their chairs and umbrella up Erin caught a piece of the umbrella in one of her earrings. She wrestled with it for a few seconds and then felt the earring come off so she finished putting the umbrella in place thinking she would find her earring after things were all setup. When she finished she started looking for the earring and found nothing. The group spent the next three hours searching the area around the umbrella. They finally gave up and spent some time enjoying the beach. After returning to their rental unit Erin searched the internet for a rental metal detector. In the search SRARC ring finders popped up and she thought that she would be smart to let an experienced detectorist search instead of trying herself. She contacted Joe Szemer who contacted Mike Miller who then made arrangements to meet Erin at the location. After about 1 minute of hunting Mike found the earring and returned it to a smiling but disbelieving Erin. They all cheered and smiled but could not believe it was found so fast after they searched for so long. SRARC is happy to be able to send Erin home with her special earring and not with just a sad story about a lost earring.

Johannes, Anna, their three children Filippa, Jakob, and Oshar were visiting Longboat Key for a Christmas vacation from Sweden. Johannes knew that his wedding ring was very loose and needed to be resized and had vowed to not wear it to the beach. On the day after Christmas he forgot all this and found himself out on the beach tossing a football back and forth with his son Jakob. He was standing right on the edge of the dry sand where the waves came up lapping at his feet. As he reached out to catch the ball he saw his ring slide off his finger and into the wet sand. He and about 30 other hotel guests spent an hour trying to find the ring and then someone suggested he contact SRARC ring finders. He googled the ring finders and found Howard Mets who contacted Mike Miller. Mike made arrangements with Johannes to meet and a couple of hours later he arrived at the hotel. Johannes and Anna met him at the lobby and let him to where they believed the ring would be. Earlier they had drawn a line in the sand pointing to where they believed the ring was. Mike lined up with the mark in the sand, took about five steps out into the water and hit a target. With one scoop, up came the ring and Mike turned and started walking back to the dry sand. Johannes couldn’t believe that it might have been found but when Mike extended the scoop and he looked inside there sat his ring. He his family and the whole beach erupted in cheers. We took pictures and with smiles on everyone’s face return to the hotel lobby and sat down for a happy visit with this wonderful family. What a Christmas joy to see the smiles on their faces and have a chance to meet new friends from across the pond.

Lauren and Louis were down from North Carolina for a mini vacation without the children. They spent a few days in Miami and then came over to Longboat Key for a few days at the beach. Lauren was wandering in about waist deep water when she felt her wedding rings slip off. She frantically searched but to no avail. Her husband Louis, found SRARC ring finders on the Internet and contacted Joe Szemer. Joe contacted Mike Miller and arrangements were made for a hunt the next morning. Mike arrived about 8:00 AM, got directions and about 20 minutes later up came the wedding rings. When Lauren saw the rings in Mike’s scoop she burst into tears, gave mike a big hug, and then began smiling ear to ear. What a great way to save a vacation.

If you have lost your ring or any other precious item, “Don’t Wait – Call Now.” Chris and his wife Samantha were up from Cape Coral for a little away time and R & R on Long Boat Key. As they setup their spot on the beach, Samantha put her wedding rings safely away in her wallet and went in for a swim. While she was away Chris ordered some drinks and when they came, he opened Samantha’s wallet (he did not know she had placed her rings in the wallet for safe keeping) and paid for the drinks. Later, when they were packing up to leave, Samantha opened her wallet and found her engagement ring, but her wedding ring was missing. They looked around the area but could not find the ring. That evening Chris found SRARC on the internet and Mike Miller agreed to go search the next morning. After meeting at the site, Mike went to work and in about 4 swings found the ring. Chris was nothing but smiles as he was in big trouble. I imagine Samantha had a big smile as Chris came back in holding her ring.

They headed out to the beach to enjoy the sun and watch the waves and wildlife on the Gulf of Mexico. When they laid their towels out to sit on, Sam decided to hide his wedding ring in the towel so he wouldn’t loose it in the water. That is usually a very smart move but this time it backfired. As they packed up to leave Sam flipped his towel to clear the sand off and then instantly remembered his ring was hidden in that towel. They spent some time searching in the sand but had no luck. Then Robin remembered overhearing someone telling a story about The Ring Finders recovering a lost heirloom item for them. She grabbed her phone and googled “the ring finders”. Up popped the SRARC ring finders site and she immediately called Joe Szemer. Joe sent Mike Miller to meet them right away. Mike arrived right at sunset and within a few minutes Sam had his ring back on his finger. When the ring came out of the sand the whole beach crowd cheered and hugs and smiles were everywhere. Always a pleasure to see the smiles and relief on the peoples face when we can help the out.

Ring Lost On Cortez, FL Recovered By SRARC

Merry and Brian were visiting Anna Maria Island from Long Island for a couple of months. They decided to have lunch at the Star Fish Company and Restaurant in Cortez, Fl. After lunch they were sitting at the bar when an old friend arrived. Merry stood up and hugged her friend and as she patted her on the back her ring flew off and fell through the crack between the deck planks. This was not just any ring, it was Merry’s grandmothers wedding ring handed down to Merry’s mother and then to Merry her self just one month ago. Brian went under the deck which is over the water and searched but could not find it. A customer noticed what was going on and told Merry about SRARC ring finders. Merry contacted Joe Szemer who sent a callout. Mike Miller responded and in about 10 minutes the ring was back on Merry’s finger. The customers at the restaurant all cheered and Merry broke down in tears. We at SRARC get so much satisfaction when we get to return a special item like this. We are ever so happy to have recovered this heirloom for Merry.
