Lost Diamond wedding ring found in Traverse City, Michigan at Bryant park with a metal detector

  • from Traverse City (Michigan, United States)

I received a very nice polite call from Swapana asking if she could hire me to find her Platinum Wedding ring. I said sure and told her I could be at her location in about 1/2 hour.

I got to the location and her husband Brent met me in the parking lot. We went over the details while walking to the area they were set up at on the beach. They are in Traverse City for a family vacation and were enjoying the day at the beach. The kids were digging holes and having fun in the water. Swapana noticed her ring was missing. They spent time sifting through the sand with there fingers and had other people on the beach helping. They had no luck finding the ring. One of the neighbors on the beach recommended doing a google search on someone with a metal detector to come find the ring.

I got the search area was 8 feet wide by 8 feet long. She also walked to the car a couple times. I asked Swapana to move the metal chairs back a couple feet so they don’t mess with the detector. She replied they already did. So that told me to search a little closer toward the water. I started searching for about 30 seconds and got a good signal and the red dot on the Ctx3030. The numbers were right on the pull tab range. I knew by the tone it was her ring and not a pull tab. I bent down and stuck my fingers in the sand and pulled the ring out. Swapana was just finishing moving the two chairs and was turning to look back toward me and I handed her the ring. She stood there for about 10 second and could not talk in disbelief. Then I heard oh Shoot(not the word she used) he found it already. Her two boys walked up and were disappointed they did not get to see it. I told them if I found the ring to fast, I will close my eyes and they can throw it and I’ll find it again. The two boys though that was a great idea. Swapana was having no part of that and was hesitant to give me the ring back to do my close up picture.¬† I was happy to save the vacation for Swapana and her family.

Wedding Ring found with a metal detector North Bar Lake Empire, Mi

Well the temperatures have finally gotten warm enough in the last week to get people back at the beaches in Northern Michigan.

My wife had told me about an Instagram post from one of her former co workers about loosing her wedding ring earlier in the day. I told my wife to send her a copy of my business card and see if she needed me to help. Anna responded right away saying she would be very grateful for any help. We got this figured out about 8:00 pm Saturday night. Anna had to go to work  the overnight shift and could not communicate an exact location. Got a description of White gold and a Diamond with an antique look. I got a rough location and decided to go look Saturday night. I searched from 9:00 pm to 11:30 pm and no ring. Anna said she could meet me at 8:00 am the next morning and take me to the location. We met up and I got some better details on how she lost the ring. She had taken the ring off and placed it in a pocket in her swimsuit. When leaving for the day she got 1/2 way to the car and noticed the ring missing from the pocket. We met at 8:00 am and walked the 1/4 mile into the beach. Anna did a great job and got me within about 6 feet of the ring. My second target was the ring 3 inches down in the dry sand. Search time was about 10 minutes. I had not searched the area she was at the night before, I was about 40 feet away.
