Lost wedding ring recovered from pond, Plymouth Indiana
Cameron and his buddy were in a paddle boat at the family “swimming hole” (pond). They managed to capsize their paddle boat, losing their sunglasses and Cameron’s Tungsten wedding ring at some point, allegedly in the middle of the pond. There were several people present when they capsized, but all had conflicting recollections of the location. Pond depth was about 11 feet, with enough silt to make it a cloudy zero visibility search and tall weeds collecting on the detector, which had to be constantly untangled and shed. I found many shotgun shells, coins, fishing sinkers, bottle caps and miscellaneous metallic items throughout the better part of an hour, but no ring. Cameron said they had lost the sunglasses immediately when they fell into the water. I managed to locate the first pair of sunglasses, put out a marker device i had with me, did a circle pattern around that and found the other missing sunglasses. I continued circling my marker (best i could, not being able to see it) in hopes of finding the ring. I found a few more targets, but still no ring. Being quite tenacious, I continued the search, until getting down to a few hundred pounds of air, figuring that was about it. As always though, I continued to search on my way out towards shore, getting a very loud signal just two steps from shore’s edge. Located this target with my pin-pointer and pulled out a gray and black tungsten ring, it was Cameron’s lost ring, right in front of all the onlookers that had gathered to observe.
