It began early Sunday morning with a referral phone call from another of the Ring Finders here on Oahu. He had received multiple calls for lost items and could not possibly make them all in the same day. He asked if I would take the call for a lost ring at Lanikai Beach on the east side of Oahu. I was more than happy to and immediately called the client, Stewart, for the details to recover his lost wedding band. Stewart explained that he had been tossing a football back and forth with his son on the shoreline. Something felt wrong and he looked down at his left hand and immediately noticed that his wedding band was missing. Yikes! As soon as he had the opportunity to he did a bit of research and looked up TheRingFinders.com and gave us a call. Not knowing exactly where the ring went missing he knew about where within 30 yards or so.
I met Stewart on the beach about noon in the general area where he and his family had been relaxing and playing the day before. Stewart placed me in the center of the general area of where he thought he had lost the ring ranging from knee deep water to the damp sand. Being forever the gambler I asked him if he wanted me to start to the right or to begin my search. Stewart said lets go left, so I faced left, turned on the metal detector and tuned it for the sand conditions and started swing the coil. Almost immediately I hear a solid BEEP! looking as the screen it says a solid target about 3 inches deep in the sand. So I inserted the scoop gently into the wet sand and pulled it out. Looking in the scoop I saw a gold colored circle and immediately asked: “Is this your ring?” Stewart looked in the scoop smiled and said “You Found It!”. He immediately took the ring and put it back in its rightful place on his left hand. Any further visit to the beach the ring will be on a leash. Although the search was a short one it was great that the missing ring was found and back where it belongs. Aloha Stewart!
