It was a Black Monday for the company and I was engulfed in an imaginative build-out of Duplo Legos with my boys.  The weather was worsening and it was only a matter of time before rain returned the the Bay Area.  I received a message from Leanne in Danville.  Her husbands wedding band had flown off of his hand in the side yard while preparing for the next round of storms to hit.  Help would be requested!

I enthusiastically called Leanne back and within 30 minutes, I was headed down the 680 towards the days search.  It was my hope to quickly get in and get out before the deluge began and I knew that with the information provided from the couple, this could be the case…they knew it was there and we just had to locate it.

Upon arrival, I met Michael in the drive.  He quickly filled me in of the events that had occurred the evening before and the search that ensued. After a lack of success, but not without effort, the couple sought out additional resources.  A family member sent them my information, hence my presence.

I started to grid the hillside where Michael believed the ring had flown off.  He helped by moving debris and pruning back dormant bushes to make way for the coil of my machine.  We found a lot on the surface, first a razor blade, a bottle cap, aluminum cans, a fastener, a AA battery, but not the 14K white gold band that we sought. About 30 minutes or so into the hunt, success!!!  We had made the recovery!!!

The couple was surprised and excited to have this sentimental ring back and there were smiles all around. The clouds opened up and the rain fell from the sky, I like to think they were tears of joy for my first ring recovery of 2023!  Happy New Years!!!
