Drew joined his mother, father, and brother for a short vacation away from Massachusetts. They met at Turtle Beach on Siesta Key. They headed down to the beach and spent the afternoon playing in the sand and Gulf of Mexico. That morning, Drew had bargained for and purchased a silver bracelet. He wore it proudly to the beach and into the gulf. After rough housing in the water with his dad and brother, he returned to the beach and then noticed he no longer had the bracelet. He spent the next 2 days snorkeling in search of the bracelet but without any luck. His mother did some searching on the internet and finally discovered the SRARC Ring Finders group. Using his mother’s information, he contacted Howard Metts who did a call out for team members. Mike Shuler, Bill Gallant, and Mike Miller answered the call and met Drew the next morning. Drew gave them the perimeters for the hunt and off they went on the search. Mike and Mike headed out to the first sandbar to begin the hunt while Bill began a grid closer in. Mike Miller was a few feet in front of Mike Shuler and had just climbed up onto the sandbar when Shuler held the bracelet up in his hand. Shifty Shuler had done it again, 5 minutes into the hunt and he single handedly turned the hunt into a successful recovery. As we walked back to shore Drew stood up in disbelief and as Mike handed him the bracelet a big smile spread across his face. It is always a great pleasure to be part of a successful recovery and return.
