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.

Tetsuya and his wife Maya are Japanese tourists visiting Newport Beach, CA. While walking on a breakwater he dropped his IPhone on the large rocks and it went into the water. It was high tide at the time of the loss so he asked me if I could help him find the smartphone.

We met at low tide, where Tetsuya was able to point out the general area. Hopefully the phone wasn’t deep inside the rock structure where I couldn’t get my metal detector. There was also the possibility that the receding waves could have pulled the phone down the sloping beach further out into the ocean.

I started my search over a  small patch of exposed sand between two rocks. Right away I got a signal. It was not possible to determine whether it was large or small because I couldn’t swing my coil in the confined space.

The sand was wet and firmly packed but I didn’t want to use my sand scoop for fear of damaging the iphone. I started digging with my hand. About 4 inches deep I felt the corner of the phone. Almost three quarters of the phone was under a rock. Tetsuya was standing next to me  and was surprised when I touched the phone and it was still working after surviving two hours in the salt water.

It was a pleasure to help them find an important item that we all know would be a disaster to lose while vacationing thousands of mile from home.

***Andrew had lost a heirloom gold w/ diamond ring that his father had bought in Hong Kong back in 1935. The Ring had been given to Andrew who has worn it for close to 30 years.

He lost it in the surf at a beach in Dana Point, CA. while throwing a football wading through knee deep water.

It was high tide the next morning when Andrew called me, which could  interfere with being able to find the ring at that time of day. I explained this to him and agreed to meet him to get the best location of the loss. It will be low tide in 4 hours, so this search may have to be postponed until then.

After getting started I told Andrew I could give it a half hour but it looks like I’ll come back at low tide. No need for him to hang around. 

I went out into waist deep surf just to give a quick try. BOOM! Andrews’s ring was in the scoop. First signal and three or four attempts to retrieve it in between waves. I looked up where Andrew was walking off the beach. I got his attention before he drove off. Then we had a great reunion of him with this 84 year family heirloom ring, very special and irreplaceable.
