This afternoon i got a call from Kristen, She and her husband along with their daughter were enjoying the day at the beach yesterday with friends and while her husband was playing with the kids and doing cartwheels he lost his wedding band. I went out there as soon is i got her call and met them there. They showed me the area and some video where he was but after searching those spots i had to expand the search area a bit. . After just under an hour searching i had his ring in my scoop! They were so relieved and full of joy! Another wonderful ending!
While out with my family at a friends bbq with bad cell reception as we were leaving i received a message from Edward Cropski Aka NJ Lost Ring Finder about a Diamond wedding ring set lost in Sandy Hook NJ. I also had a voicemail from Jessica, The woman who lost the rings. She had taken her rings off and put them into the cupholder of her chair to put lotion on and forgot to put them back on. It was not until they were packing up for the day and her father began to shake the sand from the chairs when she realized she never put them back on. But it was already too late, They were gone! I called her to make arrangements to conduct a search and explained to her that special permission was required since the beach she is at used to be a military base and is now a Federal park where metal detecting is prohibited. She called me back about 15mins later as i as driving home to tell me she has gotten the permission needed for a search but i would have to get there quickly as the park is closing at 9pm. Within minutes of getting home I said goodbye to my wife and daughter i grabbed my Minelab Ctx 3030, Jumped back into my truck and started the 45min drive to Sandy Hook. The ride then became longer as i got caught it traffic along the way. When i finally arrived i only had 15 minutes to conduct the search! Luckily her family had marked out the area with umbrellas and other items where they were. Within 10 minutes i had found both rings, 6 ft apart from one another! Another happy ending!
Yesterday afternoon i received a referral call through Ronnie DeGhetto, Owner of Gold Digger Detectors in Raritan NJ for a lost watch. I then spoke to Mark, The owner of the Tag Heuer watch valued at 2k Which he had dropped in the sand while him and his wife were packing up for the day. After digging around trying to find it with no luck he decided to seek out some help. He found Ronnie’s info doing a web search who then gave him my number. I made arrangements to meet him out on the beach later that night. Within 20 Minutes of searching Mark had his watch back in his hands! A 10 year anniversary gift from his wife. Another happy return!
