Lost Wedding Set Recovered on Anna Maria Island

Keith, Karen and their two children Charlie and Katie came from North London to visit friends and hang out on Anna Maria Island for a couple weeks. On one of our hot summer days Karen needed to cool down so she waded out into the gulf to about waist high water. She spent a little while out there with her children playing a little and she tossed a ball once or twice. She dipped down and then went into shore again. Just before reaching the shore she sat down in the ripples, put her hands back behind her and leaned back on them. After setting there a while she got up and went up to their chairs on the beach where she reached for a towel. At that moment she realized that her wedding ring set was gone. They all looked for some time in the area of water where she had been setting. After finding nothing their friend Tracy googled about lost rings and found SRARC Ring Finders. Keith then contacted Howard Metts who contacted Mike Miller and a hunt was scheduled. After hunting the area where Karen thought she lost her rings Mike spread out into deeper water and after about an hour a good hit proved to be her wedding ring. Mike continued to hunt and then returned the next day but could not find the engagement ring. Mike then reached out for some additional help and returned a couple of days later with Paul Hill and Carl Boekemier. They hunted about three more hours but sadly never found the engagement ring. We are sad that we could not return Karen’s engagement but feel good about at least letting her return to London wearing her wedding ring. It was a pleasure to meet the whole family and we wish them a safe and pleasant trip home.

Ring Lost on Anna Maria Island is Recovered by SRARC

Patrick, Erika and children along with Erika’s parents were down from Ohio for a nice break before school begins. They were having a great time as this was their first stay on Anna Maria Island and they fell in love with the area. Midway through their week here, Patrick was in waist deep water tossing a ball back and forth to Erika who was up on the beach. For some reason Patrick reached over and felt for his wedding ring. It was gone!!!!!!! They search with dive masks for hours but had no luck. They decided to contact the various agency’s in the area to report that it was missing and in the process Patrick googled “lost Ring Anna Maria Island”. When he saw SRARC ring finders he clicked on the site and discovered we would come look for the ring. He contacted Howard Metts and the information was passed on to Mike Miller. Mike scheduled a hunt and met the family and Carl Boekemier at the location. Patrick was able to narrow the area we needed to search and after about 15 minutes Carl got the hit. The whole family was around us when Carl pushed his scoop toward Patrick and with a great big smile on his face Patrick reached in and grabbed his ring. Erika yelled let me see, and when she saw the ring her face turned into a great big grin. Their son had been hunting the beach for treasure and was finding mostly bottle caps with a few coins mixed in. Carl let him use his detector for a few minutes and to listen to what a gold ring sounded like. I think we might have inspired a budding young metal detectorist. Patrick told me after his experience with us he intends to encourage his son to pursue the hobby. That makes SRARC break out into a great big smile. Our best to the family on returning home with a fond memory of our area.

Jessica, Daniel and friends traveled from Brooksville to Coquina Beach for a day in the sun and water over the Memorial day weekend. They were all in the water and tossing a nerf football between them. Jessica was standing to the side watching when all of a sudden Daniel threw the ball at her. She put her hand up to deflect the ball and off flew her wedding ring. They looked for about a half and hour or so, but decided there was no way to find it. A little later they contacted SRARC through Ring Finders and arrangements were made for a hunt the next day. Mike showed up at 6:30 am and started to hunt. After about 3 hours of hunting up came the ring. Whe informed her ring had been found, Jessica hopped into her car and drove all the way from Brooksville to retrieve it.

Ring Lost at Crescent Beach, Siesta Key. SRARC recovers it.

Amanda and Sam visited us from Nebraska for a little spring warm up. It was a special place to them and they were happy to be back once again. Sam had something special in mind as they went to Siesta Key Crescent Beach. They laid out their blanket and beach things and then he got down on one knee and proposed marriage to Amanda. What a surprise!!!!, but Amanda was all in and said “YES”. They talked excitedly about their future and then decided to venture into the water. A short 30 minutes after Sam slide an engagement ring onto her finger, Amanda was hit by a wave and the ring slipped off her finger into the sand and disappeared. They searched but could not find it and with sad hearts they finally returned to their house. Amanda googled “how to find a lost ring” and Ring Finders popped up and she found SRARC and contacted us. Mike Miller was assigned the recovery and he met them on the beach the following morning. It was very rough but he tried anyway but after about 10 minutes later it was clear he could not continue. He kept checking the surf every day and finally 3 days later he was able to hunt and after about and hour he found the ring. Mike called Amanda from the beach and they were still in town so he arranged to meet them. After returning the ring Amanda told Mike the story about the proposal for the first time which is what makes this story so special. They were all smiles and were returning home the next day with a story that will last them a life time.

Ring Lost on Coquina Beach. SRARC finds it in 1/2 hour.

Ken, Trudy, and daughter Monroe were down from up state New York for a little spring break. They went to the beach across the road from there hotel on Coquina Beach to enjoy a swim in the gulf. There were lots of swells so Ken took Monroe out into deeper water and began tossing her into the air and catching her. After returning to the beach he noticed his wedding ring was missing. They thought it was gone forever but then found SRARC on the internet. He contacted us and made arrangements to meet at the location. Mike arrived knowing it was to rough to hunt but wanted to get the details in case they need to leave before we could hunt. Once the gulf settled down, Mike called Ken and they met at the beach again. With Ken directing him to the most likely area it was lost the hunt began. In about 30 minutes the ring was found and the whole family was smiling. They were headed home the next morning and extremely thankful to be returning with his wedding ring.

Lido Key: Lost Ring Is Recovered

McKenzie was down on Lido Key beach chillin’ out with some friends on Sunday. She had her wedding ring of ten years on when they decided to serve a volleyball back and forth to each other. On one of her serves, McKenzie felt her ring fly off. She didn’t see where it went but everyone stopped what they wee doing and searched for the ring. After having no luck, she went and got a metal detector and searched for a couple more hours with no result. After hearing about the loss that evening one of her friends whispered into her ear that there was a Metal Detecting group that would come and help her search for her lost ring. She contacted SRARC Ring Finders and Mike Miller made arrangements to meet the next morning. She showed up with her husband and metal detector and pointed out the area that the ring might be. After about an hour Mike found and returned her ring. Then the plot thickens. It turns out that she had made arrangements to turn this ring in along with some additional cash for an upgraded Diamond ring to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary. She didn’t know what they were going to do if the ring had not been found. Disaster averted!!!!! With SRARC to the rescue. It’s great to see McKenzie smiling again.

Lost Ring Recovered From Lido Beach

I met Laurel, the owner of Island Style Watersports and professional kayak guide at Ted Sterling Park to look for a ring her client lost the day before. According to Laurel, she was guiding a family through a mangrove tunnel when the husband’s kayak overturned. He didn’t realize his wedding band was gone until returning to land, but Laurel was certain it came off as his hand was grabbing at overhead branches in an attempt to stay on the kayak. It turned out she was right and a few minutes later we were looking at a large white gold band in a scoop full of oyster shells!

Mans Gold Wedding Ring Recovered From Anna Maria Island

Dan and Sue were vacationing on Anna Marie Island over the Forth of July week with their kids. They were having a great time until Thursday evening when Dan was in about 3 feet of water with the kids and was trying to feel for shells in the sand. As he lifted his hand from the sand he felt his wedding ring slipping off his finger. He quickly pushed his hand back to the sand to try and trap the ring but it flew off before he could save it. The whole family frantically searched for the ring and other beach goers joined in to where they had 12 people looking at one point. They couldn’t find it and returned to their room that night and tried to think what could be done to get the ring back. Eventually Dan found Ring Finders on the internet and contacted Howard Metts. Howard put out an email to the club hunters and Mike Miller responded that he happened to be in the area and could meet them at the beach right away. After hunting for about an hour Mike got the good signal and called Dan and Sue over. He said I think this is it. It sounds really good but just in case I’m wrong, when I dig, it could also be a pull tab so don’t be disappointed. Mike dug and shook the sand out or the scoop and caught a glimpse of gold. He moved the scoop over to Dan and said “I think I see gold in there” Dan looked and saw nothing. Mike said “dig around in the shells a little bit”. Dan started digging and instantly found his lost wedding ring. Both Dan and Sue are overjoyed to have his ring back. It was solid smiles all around with the whole family.

Lost Heirloom Ring Recovered Sand Castle Lido Beach, Florida

Grace and her husband were down for a family reunion from Indiana for the week. On Friday afternoon, she decided to swim out to join her Mom and Dad on the sandbar in front of their hotel. Shortly after arriving she felt the ring that her grandmother had given her slip off her finger! The ring was special to Grace because her grandmother had chosen it for her from jewelry that she had had for many years. Since Grace’s grandmother was there with the family it was especially hard to tell her it was lost.

The family searched the sandbar for hours but could not find it. That night Grace did a search on Google “what to do when you lose a ring in the ocean” and up popped SRARC. She emailed the web site and Stan Flack contacted her. Stan called Mike Miller to see if he could meet her before they had to leave at 9:00 a.m. the next morning. Mike met her and got the details for the search. She said it was just up on front part of the first sandbar and off Mike went to the area she pointed to. It didn’t take long for Mike to figure out he could not walk out to the first sandbar. He had never attempted to swim with his detector and scoop but there is always a first time for everything so off he went. With a little effort, he made it and about 10 minutes later the ring came up in his scoop. The return trip was a little more difficult and he was out of breath when he finally touched bottom again. He does not recommend that anyone try that unless they have a float device so they won’t get into trouble. Grace and all her family were all very happy and amazed that the ring was recovered. SRARC is just as happy to have had the opportunity to help put a smile back on their faces! Well done, Mike! We are all glad you’re an excellent swimmer!
