Stranded on Carolina Beach NC
I got a text message from Joe Denton, Minelab Distributor in North Myrtle Beach, SC, today, Jul 27th, saying he got a call from a couple wanting to rent a metal detector to find their lost keys. Joe recommended they use my services and passed their phone number on to me. I called and talked to Zora, who explained that her and her husband, Nor believed they had lost their car FOB and a few other keys in the dry sand the day before. Zora wanted to check with the Carolina Beach City’s lost and found first to see if someone found and turned them in. She said if not, she’d call me back and ask if I could come find them the next day. I told her I had no problem looking at night; in fact I prefer night hunting this time of the year because of the daytime crowds and heat. About 4 p.m. she called back asking for help. I told her it’d take me about an hour and half to get there, so I grabbed the Equinox 800 and hit the road.
When I arrived, I met Zora and Nor in front of their condo and we walked out on the beach. I asked Nor how confident was he that the keys were there and he replied about 90%. Ok, not bad odds, so Zora showed me the probable area and Nor thought it was a little more towards the ocean. Both agreed in was in the dry sand, and the area was maybe 10X15 feet. I started a grid search, and within a few minutes, I had the keys in my hand. Zora and my eyes met at the same time and she said “did you find the keys.” I just held the keys up for her and Nor to see. Both got very excited and walked over and took the keys. Come to find out they were down with another couple from DC and didn’t have many options of getting home without the car FOB. So glad I could help them out.
Zora and Nor – thanks for trusting me to help you out of your predicament.
