Lost Diamond earring – Dauphin Island, AL

  • from Mobile (Alabama, United States)


I got a message from Roberta one evening about a gold and diamond earring she lost in the sand on Dauphin Island. In talking to her, she told me it was lost on the biggest beach area there – one where I dread looking for lost items because it’s soooo big with very few landmarks. Fortunately, she was smart enough to stick a big stick where she felt it come off, so I felt pretty good about going down to look.

It wasn’t five minutes into the hunt and the third target before her earring was shining in my scoop and soon back in her ear ! As always, reward declined ….. karma works for me. 




Wedding Band with a History Lost, Found and Returned Barnstable, MA

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

Father’s Day, a day of memories, gathering and new happenings to remember.

Kevin’s mother was a denatal assistant who had made a wedding bands from old dental gold.
Unforunately she lost it sometime after her husband’s band had been lost on a nice little sandy beach. Kenvin had the opportunity to replace both his father’s and mother’s rings many years ago, while on deployment with the U.S. Coast Guard. Upon his father’s passing Kevin was given the wedding band by his siblings. The ring was then passed on down to Kevin’s son, Steve who had the unfortunate luck of loosing the ring on the same beach his grandfather had lost his first wedding band. I was called and could not wait to start a search for the missing ring. I found the ring I was looking for, but not the original ring that was lost so many years ago.



A note from Steve:

Dear Richard
Thank you so much for finding my ring earlier this month. It was a truly terrifying experience that was only stopped due to your skill and generosity. Nobody should have to get up early on Sunday and yet you obliged. I have been meaning to thank you for this, but my wife and I purchased and moved into a house since the incident, I apologize for the delay. I wish to send along our most sincere gratitude for what you did. It meant the world to us and even more to me personally. Without your skill the like of this married man would have been filled with more sorrow, disgust, and condescension than I could have handled.

Thank you.
