Nichol and Keith were visiting Oahu with their two beautiful children from LA area for their 10th Anniversary. Though staying at the Grand Islander at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki they set out to explore the North Shore and spent a day with family on the relaxing bay in front of Roy’s Beach House restaurant and bar at Turtle Bay resort. Soon after applying sunscreen, Nichol noticed she was no longer wearing her stunning engagement and wedding rings. Nichol called Don Bryant with Ring Finders around 5:30 PM. Don, and his girlfriend, Lee set out asap from Kaneohe for Turtle Bay. Arriving around 6:30 Don searched for an hour, looking in all the areas Nichol could remember sitting and walking. The sun went down….Don continued to look using his headlamp. Despair had set in….Keith was ready to call it a night and get the kids back to Waikiki. Undeterred, Don continued to search after they left, certain the rings could be found. Finally needing a break, Don headed to the restroom and Lee offered to keep searching. Nichol was pretty certain she had removed her rings while applying the sunscreen and Lee wanted to search near the umbrella post more thoroughly. The post was cemented into the beach sand and contained metal which had thrown off the signals. Drawing the sand away from the base of the post, and scanning the piles, Lee got a reading that indicated platinum. She scooped up both rings! Don got on the phone, called Nichol, and Keith turned the car around and headed back to claim those glistening rings of commitment. What a way to remember a 10th anniversary. Persistence wins!

Lost Ring Lanikai Beach Oahu: Found!

from Honolulu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-282-6978

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!

After the successful ring search at Hilton Hawaiian Village I had a call on my phone from Ashley from Birmingham, Alabama. Apparently her husband Adam returned from the beach and after going back to the room to retrieve his ring hidden in his shoe with his wallet it was no where to be found. They scoured their room and the path to the area they were at on the beach but it was gone. It was nearly 3 PM and rush hour traffic was soon to be upon us. I rushed home to get a bite to eat then immediately got on the road for Turtle Bay which is 48.6 miles from my house. That’s about the farthest destination on Oahu for me. Surprisingly I was able to make it in about an hour and a half. Adam & Ashley met me at the beach shower and we walked over to the area they were on at the beach to start the search. We marked off the sand the size of a parking stall and I went to work. It only took 5 minutes and the area was sterile. Not a single target. This wasn’t going to be easy as now we had to retrace the long path they took back to their hotel room. Miraculously Ashley found a picture on her phone that she took earlier in the day that showed exactly with landmarks where they were on the beach. The new search area was about 20 feet to the East and a family was occupying that spot. They kindly offered to move and I started again. Ten seconds later a brand new quarter and a moment after that the roar of a ring. One scoop down and Adam was beaming with a smile of relief. Honeymoon saved. Aloha to Adam & Ashley.
