Lost Your Ring - Call ASAP Tag | The Ring Finders

Grandfather’s Wedding Band Lost in the Sand, Found and Returned North Myrtle Beach SC

  • from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

I got a call from Sarah, with a Seattle phone number, asking if I was The Ring Finder for N. Myrtle Beach and if I could help find the silver ring she had lost. I got a few details and told her I was on my way. She said she was on 30th St and she’d send me a pin drop. I verified she was in North Myrtle beach and not Myrtle beach. Both cities have the same street numbers and to visitors it can get confusing. I grabbed my Equinox 800 and headed out, hoping I’d get her location before I got too far. North Myrtle has two 30th Avenues, one North and one South so I was driving slowly, waiting for her location. Her text came through, but the location wouldn’t come up, so I called her. I ask if she was in Cherry Grove or NMB. She said Cherry Grove and I told her I’d be there in 10 minutes. When I got there and walked out on the beach, she was standing there waiting along with 2 of her friends.

We talked for a few minutes, and she said they were on spring break from Vermont and on their way out of town. I told her “Let’s find it” and she showed me an area that was maybe 20’X5′. Turned on the Nox and started a grid search. My third line and about a minute later, I got a booming signal with a VDI of 30-32, higher than what I expected but I dug a scoop anyway. I missed it the first time but saw a glimmer of shine sticking up out of the sand. I reached down, picked up a beautiful heavy ring and held it up for her to see, asking “is this your ring.” She came running over, looked at it and said, “that’s my ring!” I asked for the story behind the ring, and she told me it belonged to her grandfather, who had passed away before she was born. She also said her father had given it to her. I asked if she had called her dad yet and she said yes. So, I took a quick picture of her holding it and sent it to her so she could forward it to you dad. Big smile and a hug with many thank Yous and Sarah and her friends were on their way.

Sarah – Thank you for trusting me and The Ring Finders to help find your lost treasure. Have a safe trip back to school.
