Irene called today saying she had lost her car key at the beach. She knew where it was lost, so I figured I would be able to help her find it. I was able to get to the spot in about 45 minutes, and meet with her.

She showed me the spot, and I began my search. I went completely over the area she showed me finding numerous pieces of metal but not her key. I then asked a couple of more questions to be sure we had the right spot, she was sure so I began another search of the same area, and then found the key. Sometimes it is important to rework an area, because the position of the item being searched for might be turned in a particular way, that it can only be heard when crossed by the coil going a certain direction, another reason to cross grid when you know the area is certain.

Well Irene told me that if I was unable to find her key, it was going to cost her about $400 to replace because of the type key it is. I am glad to have been a help to her, and happily send her on her way; nice smile.

Robert called me today to see if I could help him find his ring that he had lost yesterday. He and his wife had been entertaining friends from the UK, and decided that because it was such a nice California Christmas day, that they should go to the beach. After spending some time there, Robert was shaking sand off of one of the towels when his ring went flying off of his hand and into the sand that surrounded him. He had previously dislocated his finger, which caused his knuckle to be smaller than it was when his ring was originally fitted, so off it went. I then asked him if the beach groomers had been through there since yesterday, and he said he could tell they had, wherein my heart dropped a bit, knowing how thoroughly the county cleans this beach. I committed to do the search anyway because  circumstances don’t always favor the machine. We agreed to meet, and Robert showed me the area, the smoothness of the sand confirmed what Robert had told me. It is always good when someone knows exactly where they were when the ring was lost, it doesn’t always make it easy, but it keeps us in the area, and increases our odds of a successful search. I did a grid of the area going the way in which one would have concluded the ring would have flown when leaving his finger. After about 45 minutes, I decided to change detectors because the one I was using was having a bit of trouble with all the iron in the sand. I began a grid in the opposite direction, and after about 10 feet, got a solid sound in the headphones. In went the scoop and out came this beautiful ring; Robert’s ring. All of this is going on, and Robert is watching me, or bending over and digging in areas he thought the ring might be with his 7 week old baby strapped to his chest. The baby was a great searching companion, who slept the whole time. It was great to be able to give Robert his ring back, and to see his joy back. He thought it was gone for good, but it is back where it belongs. Great day!

Robert sent me the following email to include here.

I cannot thank you enough for your efforts, kindness and positive spirit and attitude. To receive back something we felt had been lost forever was such a wonderful feeling for my wife and I.
We really appreciate your professionalism, determination and willingness to drop everything and assist us straight away in our search. We certainly have a story to remember Christmas 2014.
Thank you so much again, my wife and I are looking for a suitable reward for you and look forward to sending it to you in the next week or so.
Many, many thanks again.
Robert

John called me Wednesday night explaining how he was playing volleyball, and lost his ring while going for a hit. He was still at the beach, and was willing to wait for me to come, so I gathered my gear, and was on my way. He met me and walked me over to the area of his lost ring. We talked about what had happened, what he was doing when the ring came off, and what direction the ring was most likely to have traveled. Having all of that information, it took about 5 minutes to find what had eluded John for hours. What a great opportunity to bring a smile back to John for his ride home.

I received an email from Laura this morning regarding her husband’s lost wedding ring. They had been to the beach last night enjoying the warm night air, and having dinner. Her husband started digging in the sand, and soon realized his wedding ring was missing. They had gotten married two years ago, and honeymooned in Ireland. They were enjoying themselves when due to circumstances beyond their control, they had to abandon their original itinerary, and ended up in a small hamlet somewhere in Ireland. It was there where they met a jeweler in a small shop who took a liking to the newlyweds, and offered to engrave a special message of love on the inside of each ring in Gaelic. A ring with a story like this is irreplaceable, and therefore is priceless. We arranged to meet at the beach at about noon. When I got there, and she showed me the area of the loss, I set up and began my grid. I worked one way towards where they began, and then worked back picking up numerous bits of trash. It was then I heard the sound of something good in my earphones. I was able to give Laura back her husband’s ring after about 20 minutes. It was wonderful to see such joy return to Laura, and her husband through the text he sent to her when he saw the picture of his ring. Awesome day, the story of the ring continues.
