Lost Mother’s ring in Swan Lake Maine results in a double recovery.
Jennie was wise in remembering to remove the platinum mother’s ring from her finger, giving it to her husband Wade to keep in his zippered pocket while she was waterskiing. Unfortunately after returning back to their camp Wade jumped into the lake to move a swim float, at some point his pocket became unzipped and the ring came out Wade showed wisdom too in contacting a ring finder for help. The search took about 5 hours as there were many targets in the waters of this 100+ year old lake house . Having used both of my air tanks the first day, I told Wade I wanted to come back and continue my search. I returned to the site a few days later and found the ring buried in silt, about twenty minutes after starting my search. Although the ring matched the description, I sent a photo and called Wade to confirm. Wade informed me that it was the ring and how happy they were that it was found. Since I still had plenty of air I asked Wade If I could stay and continue to search the area. Wade said sure, I told him I would let him know if I found anything cool. I ended up finding a second ring, a sterling silver men’s band buried 7 inches in sand and sent a photo of it to Wade. It was a cool find because it turned out to be Wade’s wedding band which he had lost 10 years earlier. Even cooler was the fact that both rings were recovered on the day of their 12th wedding anniversary. A portion of the generous reward I received is being donated to the Area Interfaith Outreach- Child Hunger Program in Rockland, ME which provides take home meals for children to eat on weekends and vacations when they don’t have access to school provided breakfast and lunch.
