What a great night recovery. I got a call tonight from Debbie about 7:30 pm very worried about her daughter Lyndsay’s class ring. It turns out that earlier in the afternoon on Pensacola Beach Lyndsay was trying to take a sunset picture of her gorgeous Texas A&M solid gold class ring and she dropped it straight down into the sand. As is often the case, even though she thought she knew exactly where it was, she and her family couldn’t find it because of the way the sand moved the gold deeper and deeper. They finally called me and were wondering if they should buy a metal detector. I explained why I didn’t think that was a good idea and after a quick chat decided that I would head out to the beach to meet them immediately. It was a cool night but things went great and I was able to recover her ring for her in less than 15 minutes in the dark. Not bad for the first recovery of Spring Break 2018. 😊
This was a neat story. A nice lady on the beach at the Portofino Condos in Pensacola Beach stopped me and said that she wished I had been there a couple of days earlier. I asked her why and she proceeded to explain that BOTH of her sons had lost their wedding bands in the gulf within minutes of each other just a couple of days before. I asked her if anyone had looked for them and she said no one had with a metal detector. I explained about Ringfinders and told her what I did and told her that even though I really wished she had called me a few days earlier, there was still a chance I could find them. Well, long story short I was able to find her son Jacob’s but not his brother Zach’s. I spent hours looking for Zach’s and even came back two more days to look but unfortunately I was only able to find Jacob’s. I had to mail it back to Memphis, TN but as you can see by the picture, Jacob was thrilled when he realized it was really his ring in the mail. Zach had some closure and appreciated me looking and has promised to call immediately if he ever loses something valuable again. Congrats Jacob on getting your ring back!
