MAN’S GOLD WEDDING BAND FOUND AND RETURNED, MYRTLE BEACH, SC.

  • from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

Getting ready to go to work, I picked up my cell phone to discover that I received a text the night before. I called him to start the normal investigating process.  Rich and Janet were on their honeymoon in Myrtle Beach when Rich lost his 14kt. gold wedding band. He was not sure where he lost the treasured ring but had a fairly narrow slot on the beach to search.

I met Rich at the resort 40 minute after our conversation. He walked me out to the area on the beach, explaining that it should be in the dry sand where they were camped out for the day, or in the water out to waist deep at low tide. I knew the tide was not in our favor for a water search. Our goal for the morning was to eliminate the dry sand area, and if need be come back later in the day for a water search. There were a few groups already camped out on the beach. They looked on as Rich explained the area from the previous afternoon. I worked around towels, umbrellas and chairs for 10 minutes when I got a great target signal. I missed it the first time with the sand scoop, but I could see a glint of gold on the edge of the hole. I carefully used the sand scoop to reach in and retrieve his wedding band. I held the scoop out for him to pluck it out. I could easily see stress come off his shoulders as he had his “Precious” back on his finger. Yes, I made a Lord of The Rings pun. Sorry for that.

Rich and Janet, Thank you for the generous donation to our cause, and thank you for trusting The Ring Finders to help reunite you with your precious wedding band. Traveling Mercies back to Connecticut.

I was sitting on the back patio waiting for my bride to get home. I promised her dinner out after just finding a ring for Queen (Previous Story). I was enjoying a beverage when she arrived. Then, my phone rang with a ring search. I think The Ring Finders’ wives are use to this drill. I answered the phone to talk with Chris. He told me how he lost his ring in the ocean earlier in the day and that now this spot was dry. With sunlight fading I jumped in the truck and headed his way. Chris, Anja and their son Leo were staying at one of our local camp grounds.

I met Chris at the front gate and followed him to the beach. I handed Chris my sand scoop and grabbed the rest of my gear. We walked to the area on the beach. As I was taking off my shoes, Chris used my scoop to draw a 20 yard square in the wet sand. He told me “It was in that box”.  Getting to the lower part of his box I started the grid with my trusted Excalibur. On the second grid line I got the beautiful low golden tone in my head phones. My sand scoop retrieved the missing prize. I took longer to put on my shoes than to find Chris’ Wedding band. On the way back to the truck Chris told me that He and Anja have been married for 25 years. Chis had not been wearing his wedding band for 16 years. Having recently lost some weight, he was once again able to wear it for the last few months. He was upset at the loss, and equally happy that we found the wedding band. It happened so fast that I was still able to make my promised dinner.

Chris and Anja, thank you for the hansom reward. All the best on your way back home to Atlanta.

 

Humdinger! White gold and diamond ring Lost and Returned In Myrtle Beach.

  • from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

I was trying to wrap up Friday’s work when I got a phone call from Queen. She had lost a very special ring at the water’s edge about an hour before. I explained the incoming tide would have it covered up and that we should wait a couple hours for the tide to turn and go back down. We made arrangements to meet in 2 hours and I should be able to find it in short order.

I met Queen on the beach and she walked me to the area she lost the ring while scooping up a daughter from the surf. She was very certain of the area. I fired up my Excalibur and walked north about 20 feet and entered the water. I had taken only two steps when I got a tone in the phones that knocked my ears off. I missed the target with the first try and repositioned for a different angle. Scoop number 2 had the target. I swear, I think my sand scoop weighed more than it really should. My eyes bugged out of my head when I looked into the scoop. I walked about 30 feet up out of the trough and handed Queen her very large ring. Queen shouted with joy and exclaimed “Wow, Two scoops”. I responded “Just like Raisin Bran”. She was one happy lady. The smile tells the rest.

Queen, thank you for the very generous reward. Traveling Mercies back to Atlanta.

 

Honeymoon Rescue. White Gold Wedding Band Found and Returned, Myrtle Beach

  • from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

Wednesday morning, I was just sitting down with my first cup of coffee when I got a desperate phone call from Brittany.  She was collecting sea shells at the water’s edge Monday night and had a wave strip her wedding band from her finger. She was able to clutch her hand to save the engagement ring before it too slipped away. Brittany told her husband David what had just happened. They frantically looked into the water but it was gone. This was not a way to start their honeymoon.  After a time Brittany accepted the loss and continued to look for shells. David was upset and walked a short distance to a lifeguard stand stationed on the beach. He could still see Brittany in the darkness looking for sea shells.

After Brittany’s call I researched tides and saw that low tide was right now. I told her that I would be there in 40 minutes. Meeting Her and David at the beach, they showed me the area they were certain the white gold wedding band would be.  I had them rub their left earlobe for luck with the “Ring Gods” homage. They watched on as I grid searched a 30 yard square. Every target I dug had them looking on with anticipation, only to lower their heads with every pull tab I removed from the sand. They were certain that I should expand the grid to the north. Again, no luck.  After two plus hours of swinging I needed to go to work. I assured them I would return that afternoon to catch the next low tide cycle. Before leaving the beach I asked David to walk back to the lifeguard stand to be sure of his perspective that night. David felt like we were searching too far north.

Jim Wren (TRF. North Myrtle Beach) joined me that afternoon to help cover a larger area quickly. Jim covered an area that I had searched earlier and I worked a grid closer to the lifeguard stand. Working a grid to the water’s edge, with no luck, I moved farther up the slope of the beach. I got a nice signal on my Excalibur and dug up a beautiful gold wedding band. Walking over to Brittany and David, I asked if it was important to them that we find this ring. I asked David that if we found it, would he get on his knees and propose to Brittany again. YES! was his answer. I then handed him Brittany’s wedding band and told him to get on his knees. Hugs and Laughter ensued. (“The Ring Dance”).  After the excitement, David dropped to a knee and placed the ring on Brittany’s finger. People on the beach erupted with cheers. Honeymoon rescued!

David and Brittany, thank you for your donation to our services.
