Saturday .. 6-27-15
Saturday evening I received several text messages asking me if I could help Lindsey find a metal item lost in the sand. She had believed that it was lost while playing volleyball earlier during the day.
I returned several texts explaining that 6am Sunday morning would give me the best chance to find her sentimental metal item. For some reason we could not talk on the phone. This has happened to me before because the person was occupied at a meeting or other function.
I left at 5am to meet Lindsey and her boyfriend at 6am in Venice Beach. We were able to get to the Volleyball court before the tractors raked that part of the beach. She then told me I would be searching for a silver Tiffany bracelet that “could have be lost while playing volleyball”
They played both sides of the court. I decided to start where we were standing outside the playing lines. Two grid passes diagonally across the court rewarded us with Tiffany’s beloved bracelet.
We were all surprised that it showed up because Lindsey could not definitely recall when it came off her wrist. Another successful recovery for TheRingFinders.com.
I received a call from Keith early Sunday morning who had lost a treasured / sentimental ring the day before at Blind Pass between Sanibel and Captiva islands. Keith explained that the ring he lost was very special to him as it had been passed down several generations in the family and he was to pass it on to his son.
I made arrangements with Keith for my wife and I to meet him later in the afternoon when the gulf tide was lowest. When we arrived, Keith explained that he was not sure of the exact spot where he lost his ring. He could have lost the ring in a couple different areas where he had been fishing in up to chest-deep water or an area of dry sand where he had set up chairs and an umbrella. (All these areas combined involved a lot of ground to search.) To make conditions even a bit more difficult, the water was wavy with a strong current.
My wife and I decided to start searching the water first. After an hour had passed with no success, I began searching the dry sand and then another area of water where Keith thought the ring could be while my wife continued searching the shallows. Another 45 minutes went by and still no ring. After getting tired of battling the waves and current my wife decided to search the dry sand again–this time expanding the search area past where Keith thought the ring might be. After about 15 minutes, my wife waved to Keith and I that she had found the ring. Another success story!
Thanks Keith for calling us and we are so glad you have the ring back to pass down to your son!
