Surfer Hides Car Keys in Sand .. Then Can’t Find Keys .. Huntington Beach, CA .. Found with Metal Detector

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

I was on the beach practicing with a new detector that I purchased for finding small metallic items. A nice day on the beach except for Josh who came running up to me with a distressed look on his face. I asked him, what did you lose. He replied, my only set of car keys.
He had buried his keys under his towel while he went surfing. When we walked a couple blocks back to where his towel was, his friends had dug down throwing sand in piles everywhere. I did a quick search of the piles then a little higher on the slope. One foot above where they searched by hand I got a strong signal scooping up his keys. We think the towel may have been moved by someone or the wind.
The main thing was Josh was a happy surfer who didn’t have to call a tow truck or locksmith to help him get home. I’m pleased to be able to help him with a little bit of my time and my experience of using my metal detector on the beach. I had the opportunity to tell Josh about asking him to share with his friends and social media.. More people need to know that this service exists. I love being able to help people.
