Rocco had spent his Sunday afternoon cleaning up their back patio area using his pressure washer to wash away the Florida mold and dirt. It was a wet and soapy job and his large gold and diamond ring felt a little loose on his pinky finger but he wanted to finish up so he headed to the dumpster to throw out an old rusty grill. The dumpster lids were both closed so Roccco grabbed one of the lids and with force, threw it open and that very motion plus the wetness from the pressure washing, caused his ring to go flying. He actually caught a glimpse of the ring as it went up into the air but he was not sure as to which direction it went. Frantically he searched all around the outside of the dumpster, thinking surely it landed either inside the fenced area or just over the fence and into the grass. For a good hour he searched high and low but was unable to locate his large gold and diamond ring. So his next thought was that maybe it fell down into the dumpster itself and looking thru other people’s garbage is never fun but Rocco knew he needed to do it so he went thru what he could but still–NO RING!
Frustration and then mild panic began to set in and Rocco thought of looking for someone to help him and that led him to search “Lost Jewelry Recovery” on his phone and theringfinders.com web site came up and one of my recent recovery stories. Rocco could not believe that there actually were people out there that help find lost rings. It was late Sunday afternoon when Rocco called me and we met an hour and a half later and I began my search. I have had some tough and challenging searches in the past 11 years and this one comes in right close to the top! It was dark, the no-see-ums were biting and I was looking thru piles of garbage. I detected all around the dumpster and out at least 30 feet past the wooden fence area thinking it flew allot further than first thought. Next was the garbage in and around the dumpster. I emptied every bag thinking that just maybe his ring fell into the top of one of the bags but still–NO RING!
After looking in almost every possible place his ring could have gone…there was one area in the front of the dumpster that I figured I needed to search. It was way to thick to get my metal detector to be of any use so I opted to use one of my really strong flashlights. I was hoping that just maybe I could get a glimpse of gold or a sparkle from the diamonds and sure enough as I crawled on my hands and knees under the thick bush I caught a tiny glimmer of reflective light. My pulse quickened as I strained to make out what I was looking at. I let out a holler and went to get Rocco to give him the GREAT NEWS!
How thankful I am that God allowed me to be a help and a blessing to Rocco and for showing me where his ring was hiding. Every search is a challenge and some are much harder that others but either way I do my very best to find what has been lost.
How can I help you? Call, text or email me ASAP! Anytime!
