Lost earbud in the grass, Sanford, Florida….Found!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)

Stephanie was out with her two small children and while watching them play she was unaware that one of. her earbuds fell out of her ear. After getting the children back into the house she felt her ear and realized the one was missing. Thinking it must have popped out while picking up her young son she began retracing her steps and thought surely she would find it as it was black and would show up rather easily on the sidewalk or even in the grass.

Two days passed and her husband remembered that I help people find their lost items using a metal detector so he sent me a message asking if I could help them. I showed up 15 minutes later and asked for Stephanie’s other earbud to see if I could get a reading and sure enough it gave a faint signal in the “All Metal Mode”. After searching for 20 minutes I got a quiet signal and there, down in the grass, was Stephanie’s lost earbud…barely visible! Stephanie was so happy to have it back and the big smile tells it all!

Wireless Ear Bud Lost In Construction Site Found, Como, Western Australia.

  • from Perth (Australia)

The missing one..

Cam seemed pleased..

Cam called to ask if I could help find his wireless earbuds on a construction site. I said maaaybe! Obviously modern commercial construction sites are full of metal and are about as dynamic as a storm washed beach.  I asked him to send a pic of the site and man, it looked tough. Never one to shirk a challenge I set off to have a go despite my fears and met Cam at the gate to the site a short time later.

He had been on and off a small excavator working on some plumbing thingy with an armarda of pipes connecting to it in a deep hole. Somewhere in his work area should be some a wireless earphone, but where? Murphys law says they’re sitting right above one of those pipes I joked, but inwardly I knew it was a real possibility and that wasn’t good. Large mass deep metal objects can make detecting small objects closer to the surface nearly impossible as the larger metal item ‘masks’ the smaller closer one you are looking for. As he’d also been up and down the steep sand sides of the hole that would also be difficult to detect and if he’d lost them there he easily could have trod them in a fair ways.

I bagan to methodically search the work area encountering all manner of large buried metal and junk. I had searched most of the area and was about to ask him to shift the excavator incase it was under that as it was the only area left to check when just a few meters from it I heard a signal that sounded good. Checking the target I.D on my detector I saw the same id I’d got when I’d scanned the one earbud he’d not lost and my heart quickened as I thought “please, please, please be it”. Cam had sauntered over to see what it was and as I lifted it from the sand we both saw what we’d hoped we might, the awol earbud. Cam beamed from ear to ear and said “mate, what a legend” I think I said “all in a days work mate, I mean an hour or so!”

Cam was late to be at another site by now so there wasn’t time for any great fanfare over the recovery, so we quickly took a few pics and said all the best to each other. Despite that it was as rewarding as ever to see yet another happy ending unfold for someone.

Alright, alright, calm down, keep your nickers on.. who’s next?
