Lost Heirloom Ring Recovered From Yard

Stan had just gotten out of the water in Indian Shores last night and was still parked in the lot when his friend Helen called and with a jest in her voice asked if this was the ring finders hot line.  Why yes it is, you lose something Ms. Helen?  A ring in my yard…possibly.  So off he went to her house still dripping wet.  Stan was joined by his wife and detecting assistant, Linda who thought they were both joking.  The Camp’s live around the block from them, so it’s on the way home.  Pulled up, asked her the usual questions and narrowed the area down.  Turned out to be her moms ring, a family heirloom.  Stan found her mothers teeny tiny ring in about 30 seconds.  She’s a happy camper thanks to one of our dedicated members.

Redington Beach Wedding Band Recovered

On Sunday, July 27, 2014, Keven (that’s how he spell’s it) and his wife Jessica Jones were at Redington Beach with some friends when he tried to catch a football with his ring hand and watched in slow motion as it flew off.  Thought gone forever, Keven told his friends about his mishap.  Lucky for Keven, It turned out Keven’s friends happen to be my neighbors daughter who immediately called my wife looking for me.  Oddly enough i was already at that beach.  I tried in very rough water that evening to find his ring, family heirloom passed down in his family, but no luck.  Tried again on Thursday but too rough.   We then got our crew of ring finders organized for one last try on Saturday morning in flat seas.  Mike Miller, Howard Metz and Stan Flack gave it a go for about 45 minutes when Stan managed to get the ring under his coil and Keven was pulled from the dog house.  High fives all the way around.

 

 

Lost ring 2 – St. Augustine – Found

Monday evening I heard about a man named Cody who stated his wife had lost her wedding ring at the beach near Island Beachwear Market in Saint Augustine. I  tried to contact him to see if he’d like my help using my metal detector to find it.  I didn’t get a reply right away so I drove to the beach on Tuesday morning and searched a grid area where I thought it was likely that they had been. I cleaned the area of pull tabs,  small pieces of the remnants of beer cans and aluminum foil wrappers but no ring. When I got home I had a voicemail from Cody, he’d found my name on TheRingFinders.com and wanted my help.  I contacted him and we agreed to meet Wednesday morning at the beach. I was close! ( Only about 100 feet too far south the day before.) But today I had Cody with me to show me exactly where he was. I had him show me the point farthest north it could have been and made a nice big line in the sand. I then did the same to the south. My search started between the two lines. On the third or fouth line of my grid search that familiar beep sounded in my ear! Excited, I dug up a carefully selected area of sand into my metal scoop. While gently shaking the scoop I watched the sand slip through the small holes. Then there at the bottom of the scoop was his wife’s ring! That $6,000 dollar  ring sat nestled in the sand for five days before I found it and returned it to Cody. I wish I could be there to see his wife’s face when he puts the ring back on her finger where it belongs.
