Kristen was on the beach with her family. After a day of fun, she noticed her wedding rings were missing. After looking throughout the condo, she determined the rings were lost on the beach. Maybe it happened when she applied sunscreen to her children, not sure. She found SRARC.COM online and asked for help. Ed rushed over to the beach and began the hunt. After scanning the area, the rings were found. Lots of joy and excitement followed. Another excellent return for job well done.

Tyler and his large extended family from Indiana were staying at a condo on Reddington Beach, enjoying the Florida sun, sand and surf.  Tyler placed his wedding band on a towel to apply sunscreen, and the next thing he knew, his ring was missing.  Everyone pitched in and raked through the sand with their fingers, but with no success.  While looking online about how to rent a metal detector, they found the site for SRARC and Ringfinders.  Tyler called for assistance, and a notice was sent out to the group.  Bill Gallant and Mike Shuler responded to the site, where Tyler and his family had been keeping careful watch over the area.  In less than five minutes, Mike held his scoop out to Tyler, who saw the ring inside and excitedly plucked it out.  We’re glad to see Tyler reunited with his ring so that he can continue to enjoy his beach vacation!

Ring Lost On Shell Key, Recovered By SRARC

Marisol & Abdiel came from Kissimmee to enjoy the Gulf Coast for a few days. They joined a few friends on Shell Key to celebrate a birthday and while getting ready to swim Marisol was pulling her shirt off over her head when her new wedding ring flew off and disappeared in the sand. She had received the ring just 27 days earlier in celebration of her Three year anniversary. Luckily, Abdiel saw where the ring flew so they searched in the sand until they had to leave but had no luck. Thinking ahead, Abdiel marked the spot before they left with a stick. Later that evening He googled for lost rings and found SRARC. Joe Szemer made arrangements for Mike Miller to meet them the next morning. Due to the good planning by Abdiel, It took only a couple of minutes for Mike to find and return the ring. The smiles on their faces show the joy they felt to have their precious ring returned. It was SRARC’s pleasure to have been able to help them recover this special ring.

Ring Recovered In Shell Key

Some friends and I were enjoying a Saturday boat outing on Shell Key. Everything was going well… until that “moment.” We were getting ready to head back and the boat driver asked “Hey Matt, can you hop out and grab that anchor?” I immediately jumped off the boat, grabbed the anchor and swam to the back of the boat to get back on board. I was standing on the swim platform and spun to the left to grab the other anchor. That’s when the “moment,” happened. I saw my wedding band slide off my finger and into the ocean below. I immediately yelled “Shut off the engine,” and jumped into the water frantically diving below to search for my ring. After about an hour of searching, I returned to the boat and called 5 local dive shops to see if they could send out a diver to search for the ring. They were all skeptical with the typical response being “There’s no way we’re going to find it, I’m sure the currents would have taken the ring, it could be hundreds of feet from where you originally dropped it.” I started to lose hope and could not stop dwelling on the thought that one of the most meaningful items I would ever own would be lost forever.
I didn’t give up and continued to call local dive shops. After a few more calls and no luck I started googling looking for help. That’s when I stumbled across The Ring Finders website which led me to reach out to the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club. I initially reached out to Howard who took my call while he was meeting with a client. I explained the situation to him and he reached out to the club to find some volunteers to help recover the ring. Later in the evening I received a call from Joe, who helped plan the hunt. We decided to meet at Tierra Verde marina on Sunday at 3PM so that they could search during low tide. Sunday came around and 3 hunters showed up, Joe, Tom and Ed. Slowly, the remorse and feelings of despair turned to hope as there were 3 hunters with over 40 years of collective experience helping to find my ring.
They searched for about an hour and a half with no luck. Ed started following me as I was in the water searching with my feet. After about another half hour, Ed looked up and said “I’m not sure if this yours, but I found one.” I raced over to him and looked at the ring. To my amazement he had found it. The feeling in that moment is hard to describe, but I can tell you it was one of the best moments of my life. I will forever be thankful to the SRARC, Ed, Tom, Joe and Howard. The entire experience of dealing with them was amazing and these guys are some of the most altruistic people I have ever met.
