I received a call from Steven Kennedy visiting from Seattle, WA ; who lost his gold and platinum wedding band during a swim in Penobscot Bay at his sister’s summer home in Northport, Maine. I proceeded to the site the following day just prior to low tide and began my dive. After removing some metallic debris from the seabed that hindered the search, I was able to locate the ring which rested covered in about an inch of sand in about 6 feet of water and return it to Steve. A portion of his generous reward will be directed to Literacy Volunteers Mid Coast Maine.
I received a call from a lady named Cherish, who had lost her wedding ring while swimming in Sebago Lake in Standish, Maine. I made the two hour drive to the location which also included about a half mile hike to the beach where the ring was lost. After only about 5 minutes I was able to locate it in about 4 ft of water but about 2-3 inches below the sand. Drove home happy to have reunited the owner with this family heirloom.
If you have lost your ring, jewelry, keys, or phone while shoveling after a storm or playing in the snow, you are not alone. Before trying to rent a metal detector or giving up altogether, call me Sean Kelly- Professional Metal Detectorist, I can help. See my listing in The Ring Finders directory for contact information www.theringfinders.com/sean.kelly. I work in Mid-Coast Maine and points beyond.
Went on vacation back to Maine, went over to Mount Kineo to do a little water detecting. we had gotten off the ferry and had to walk almost a mile to the beach due to no cars allowed on the island only golf carts that you cant rent. So at about the halfway point a young lady pulled up behind us, telling us she had lost her ring ant the beach the day before and if we found it could we drop it off at the Pro Shop. she shoed me a picture of the ring and said she had went to Peru to study and that was were she got it. she said she couldn’t believe we were there, when she reported it to the Pro Shop there ferryman had said that 2 people just got off the ferry with metal detectors and was headed to the beach. she seemed to be in a hurry, but later found out that she was rushing to make the ferry trip back to the mainland. She offered to give us a ride to the beach which we excepted. once there I ask where she was sitting, she pointed to the area and before she could leave on my 5 swing she was reunited with her ring. After a few hours we headed back to the ferry. Once there the ferryman said, Great job on finding her ring she’s a great kid glad it worked out. As you can see in the photo she’s pretty happy to have her ring back.
