Mission Valley Tag | The Ring Finders

Ring lost in the bushes found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Dayanne was walking her dog in her apartment complex, when a simple body turn to look behind her, made her gold ring fly off her finger and into some thick bushes that line the walkway (as you can see in the photo). She actually saw the spot where the ring went into the bushes, but, even after clipping away some of the leaves and branches to get access it still couldn’t be located. I initially started with a large coil to hopefully get the depth I needed to locate the ring deep inside, but, it became apparent immediately that another method was needed. I instead put on the 6″ coil and rechecked the area where I could get deeper down inside the bush. I got a nice 15 signal on my Equinox, smiled, and pulled out my pin pointer to poke down into the bowels of this sticker bush. Carefully reaching inside and locating the signal with the pin pointer, I zeroed in on the target. Even so, it was still invisible and took 3 tries to grab it in the dead leaves at the base of the bush. A happy Dayanne put the ring back on her finger. A pleasure to meet you, and thank you for the reward.
