Got a call this evening that was way hard to understand. Didnt speak good english but we got thur it. He headed stright back to the beach cause they didnt know what the beach name or tower number. I headed to coast hey to wait. As I am geting to the hwy he calls and gives me the State beach name. I’m only five min away.
As I pull into the parking lot I see a young man standing right in front, he waves to me, musta know it was me.
As we get down to the area the tide had come in and covered the area. No problem, remove the shoes and we’re in. Whites PI water detector with me always. Not move than five min and ring found. Tiffany & co Dimond ring.
Yesterday I got 2 Lost ring calls in ten min. Called partner Curtis Cox to cover the Oceanside call while I do the Carlsbad call.
So the lady says do we really need to go back there now, only if you want it back I reply. She tells me her Dad will meet me there. As I get there and listen to where they were and how the rings were lost we head to the towel area. Still alot of people on the beach but all three groups in this area had no problem moveing their stuff for me to search. NOT HERE…
I start to grid the trail they took out and 10 min in I got the 70 yr old Grandma’s Ring.
Beautifull white gold with one dimond for ea of grandma” kids ( 5 ).
Both lost ring calls were found and returned to their owners. Great day for TheRingFinders.com
( TELL A FRIEND )
Just got home and the phone rings. Hi John, I got your number on the internet “TheRingFinders.com
I situp cause I feel a hunt coming on.
I was down at the beach at tower ?? last night and lost my 25 yr old wedding ring. I asked more info on area and asked if he could meet
NOW. He said yes, so we both headed there. Parking was packed so I called him and let him know where to park. Then my phone died, damn. I get to the area and start detecting, nail, nail, nail, quarter, penny, penny.
I look up to see a man waveing so I go over, Hi I’m Colin, I think I was way down there. I said you must have big feet. 🙂 he had said 50′ ft from tower. We both laugh and head down the beach, only off by 50′.
Almost every call is off.
Did the whole area but nothing,? So I head closer to the water between a group who had offered to mover there stuff and
beep beep. I was smilein so I turned my back to him as I looked in to see a mens 14k gold band. Ok, what color is it ? He says Yellow 14k stamp is worn off. I hand him the ring and the beach comes alive with claps and cheers. What a great feeling. As we walk back he tells me he called his ins but had a $1,000.00 deductable. Ouch.
That doesnt matter now cause he’s got it back.
When you really want it back,
WHO YA GONA CALL ?
I was just geeting ready for a water hunt when I saw a Ring post with a phone number. Ah what the hell, I’ll call him. Rob answered and seemed to know about our group TheRingFinders.com I asked if he could meet me asap and we both headed to the area. 10 min later I walk down to the area to meet him and I see another detector guy 100 yds down the beach but headed the other way so I went and introduced myself. Wow we kinda know of each other, its a small world. Asked if he found anything back in the area he just went thru. Said no so I let him know if he did, reward is his. He smiled and replied I wish.
My phone rings and its Rob, I can see him coning down the beach on his phone. I say Goodby to this man and head over. Rob shows the area so we make lines (big square) and I start to gid. Almost covered the area when Rob says, We might have been alittle more over there. An extra 10×20, so I do one pass thru turn and BEEP BEEP, I knew I had it. When u scoop a Plat ring you know it. I turned my back and said whats it look like. 100% his.
I think he was a little bit in shock thinking no way in hell will he every see it again. He had brought his young son with him and they’ll have this story between them for life. I am STOKED to be a part of this….
