*** Marisa had spent the weekend at Doheny State Beach campgrounds, Dana Point, CA. After returning to her home in San Diego, CA. she realized her Apple Watch was missing. She was sure it had to be at the beach in front of where she had camped.

Marisa thought maybe she could rent a metal detector and drive back 60 miles the next morning. During the process of searching for a metal detector, she found my contact information doing a google search.

She called me late that Sunday evening. After telling me that she had taken her Apple Watch off putting it into a small jacket pocket. She was sure it probably fell out of the pocket on the sloping sand in front of the campsite. I explained that I could drive to the location before dark and it wouldn’t be necessary for her to meet me there.

Everything went well, I got to the campsite with enough daylight to search the steep sandy slope which was about a 30ft x 40ft zone.  Fifteen minutes into the search I was able to find the watch with my metal detector.

I called Marisa to hear the joy in her voice when I told her I had her watch safe in my care. We discussed the possibility of mailing it to her. I just don’t like trusting the mail. I already had another errand to do in San Diego. So I met her the next day to personally give her the watch. No waiting to 2 or 3 days for the mail to get delivered.  Also, I was happy to get my other errand taken care of while in San Diego. Plus I know a place where I can get the best burritos in the southland. 

On my trip home I got another ring call in Laguna Beach.

Rene’ called me requesting help to find her friend Chris’ iPhone lost the night before in the sand at Venice Beach, CA. 

These cellphones can be hard to find at the beach as they are often picked up by people walking the beach. After hearing that the loss occurred in very soft sand and the Find My iPhone app indicated it was still at the location, I told them I would be there within an hour.

We met on the beach where I was glad to see that the beach rake had not passed over the possible area of the loss. I set up my detector beginning a search grid approximately 20ft. by 30ft around the gps app location. From my experience the Find My iPhone App can be off as much as 30 ft. This find also occurred more than 35 ft. outside the gps ping location. After about 20 minutes I got a clear #30 tid reading from my metal detector.

I used my hands feel through the sand because it’s very easy to damage a cellphone with my metal sand scoop. 

Both Rene’ and Chris were very relieved and grateful to have the phone back saving them all the trouble of having to replace the expensive item,  irreplaceable photos and information.

Another successful search and happy smiles from Rene’ and Chris

Craig called me at 6:30pm asking if I was available to help his son find his prescription glasses lost in the sand at Huntington State Beach. His son, John had lost the glasses in the sand while at a beach party with friends.

I was told by John’s father that the area of the loss was quite small but after 2 hours of searching they needed help. It was dark when I arrived and we still had two hours to search before the beach closed.

The possible area of the loss was much larger after talking to John which isn’t a problem. John believed his glasses may have fallen out of his pocket earlier while he coming from the parking lot to the firepit.  He said, he had to run across the sand to chase seagulls away from their food at the firepit. That was a couple hours before he realized the glasses were missing. He had also played some sort of game with a frisbee in another location.

It took about an hour to grid those first two areas. That’s when John’s father opted to leave wanting to thank me and call off the search. I was already on the site and felt another hour of searching would not be a problem. Twenty minutes later I got a nice signal that turned out to be John’s glasses. case of searching outside the box. They were about 30 or 40ft. away from any path that John had suggested. 

It was another fun search with the bonus of seeing a big smile from John who truly appreciated the work I did for him. His dad Craig was the hero for finding me at TheRingFinders.com.
