Linda and Dave from Bradenton spent the day at the beach on Anna Maria Island with friends in front of the Sandbar restaurant. When they first arrived Linda took her Rolex watch off and stored it in her beach bag. After a beautiful day at the beach they returned home and as Linda cleaned out the beach bag the watch was no where to be found. They went back to the beach and searched the area they had been sitting in but could not find the watch. When Linda’s daughter heard about the loss she searched the internet and found SRARC ring finders. Linda called Joe Szemer and Joe contacted Mike Miller. Mike called Linda and made arrangements to meet early the next morning. A few minutes of searching and up came the watch much to the delight of Linda. Both Linda and Dave were very pleased and amazed that the watch was recovered and there were smiles all around.

Jackie was helping out at her Mom’s house in Sarasota by removing air plants from the hedges. As she was picking the branches down inside the hedge she felt her ring fall off. She looked around on the ground under the hedge and found it laying there. She put it back on and went back to picking air plants. When she finished she noticed her ring missing again. She searched the ground under all the bushes she had worked on but could not find her ring. After googling for help she found SRARC ring finders and contacted Joe Szemer. Joe contacted Mike and he made arrangements to meet Jackie at her mothers house. After detecting the ground under the bushes and finding only nails and screws, Mike started moving the coil over the tops and down into the bushes. Soon a nice signal sounded and Mike carefully searched the branches and only found a roofing nail that had been setting there for years. Disappointed, Mike continued to search the tops, sides, and down in between the branches of both bushes. Finally he return to the bush that the roofing nail had been found in and searched again. As he passed next to the area where the nail had sounded off earlier another strong signal was detected. A close inspection revealed the elusive ring. There were lots of smiles and hugs as Jackie was reconnected with her ring. It is always a pleasure to see the excitement and smiles when we get to return a lost item.

Patrick and his family were down to Longboat Key from Toronto, Canada for a short winter break. The whole group was out on the sand and Patrick was tossing a football back and forth with his dad when he realized his Wedding ring was missing. They all looked through the sand and raked the area that they had been playing but could not find it. Someone walking along the beach suggested they look online for help and as soon as Patrick googled “Metal Detecting Service”, SRARC ring finders popped up. Patrick called Joe Szemer and Joe called Mike Miller. Mike set up an appointment to meet at the site. Patrick laid out the area he thought the ring would be in and after about 20 minutes Mike found the ring. There were lots of smiles and now the rest of the vacation can be enjoyed with no bad memories.

Tiffany & Michael were down to Anna Maria Island from Connecticut for some fun and sun. They set up their area on Holmes Beach and Tiffany remembered she was wearing a very special ring so decided to protect it by tying it to one of the strings on her string bikini. During the day they ran around in the sand and tossed a football back and forth before going into the water to cool down. After returning to their area after cooling off, Tiffany noticed that her ring was no longer on her bikini. The area they had been in throughout the day was so large that it was impossible to search. They mentioned to a gentleman on beach named Bill what had happened. Bill suggested that they call SRARC ring finders. Joe Szemer got the call and contacted Mike Miller to see if he could respond quickly as the couple was going to leave in a short while. Mike headed down to the beach immediately and arrived just as they were leaving. Michael took Mike out to show him the area they thought he should hunt and then they left to return to Tampa. As Mike setup to begin the hunt, Bill came over and said he had been watching them the whole time they were there and that he should hunt in a completely different area than Michael had laid out. Since the area where the ring might have been lost (about the size of a football field) Mike went with what Bill suggested was the area they were most active in. After choosing to do the upper area first and having no luck Mike moved back to the middle and began the search of the lower area. After two sweeps the sweet sound of gold popped into Mike’s ears and sure enough there it was. Since Michael and Tiffany were already headed for return to Connecticut Mike will be returning the ring via USPS and is sure Tiffany will have a great big smile on her face when she opens the package. Thank you so much to Bill for putting Mike on the right track to finding the ring, without your help Mike would have never found the ring.

Jerzy was down with his family while his son was attending IMG Academy soccer camp. They decided to stay a few extra days to enjoy time on Anna Maria Island at the beach and in the Gulf of Mexico. Jerzy was out in about knee deep water tossing a ball with his son when he felt sand under his wedding ring. He stopped tossing the ball and spun the ring on his finger and pushed it to his knuckle to rinse the sand off. His son then tossed him the ball and when the ball hit his hand off went his ring. They looked for the ring but as we all know it is almost impossible to find it once it hits the sand. Jerzy found SRARC ring finders with Google and soon Mike Miller was in contact and went to meet him at the beach. Jerzy showed Mike the area where he had lost it but the water was to rough for a safe hunt so Mike said he would return when the tide was right and the water was calmer. Mike returned a few days later and hunted for three hours and had no luck. Still waiting for a good tide Mike returned a couple days later and finally had calm water. Two hours into the hunt the ring finally revealed itself. When Mike texted Jerzy a picture of his ring he was overjoyed. Since Jerzy and family have returned home it will be a few days until he can put it back on his finger and I’m sure when he opens the package he will have a huge smile on his face. It is always such a pleasure to return an item the owner thought was gone forever.

At their wedding on Anna Maria Island, Daniel was preparing to slide the wedding ring onto Emily’s ring finger when disaster struck. In preparation for receiving the ring Emily had removed her engagement ring and slipped it on to end of her little finger. As Daniel started to put the wedding onto her finger Emily’s reaction caused her to flip her little finger and off flew the engagement ring and disappeared into the sand as well. They quickly found the wedding ring and the ceremony continued. Later the whole wedding party searched but the engagement ring could not be found. Someone found SRARC ring finders online and contacted Joe Szemer. Joe called Mike Miller who responded immediately and headed for the wedding location on the beach. When Mike arrived the wedding party had left for the reception and there was another metal detectorist searching the area because someone who had been there when the ring was lost called him over when she saw him coming down the beach. They both searched for about 5 minutes and then the other detectorist found the ring. The Grooms brother (Matt) had called Mike earlier and requested that the he call him instead of the bride if the ring was found so he could surprise them at the reception. Mike was going to drive right by the reception on his way home so the other detectorist kindly gave Mike the ring so it could be delivered. Mike arrived about an hour later and called Matt to come to the parking area to get the ring. Matt had a master plan to present the ring to the Bride and Groom and invited Mike in to watch. Matt got the microphone and called his brother to center stage. He then talked a little about the catastrophe at the wedding and then open the box and gave the ring to his brother. Daniel called Emily up and got down on one knee and slipped the ring back onto her finger. The crowd was cheering and everyone was smiling from ear to ear. SRARC wants to wish the Bride and Groom the best for their future life together. We always like to be a smiling part to a happy ending.

Kyle and Ally were down from Nashville to Longboat Key visiting with Kyles mother for a few days. They were out on the beach enjoying the sun and surf. Kyle and a friend were tossing a football around. At one point, Kyle was standing on shore ready to hike the football to his friend who was out in the water. As he hiked the ball he felt his wedding ring fly off. He didn’t know how far it flew but they all searched along with volunteers from the beach. After several hours they gave up and Ally searched and found SRARC ring finders. She explained the situation to Joe Szemer and Joe contacted Mike Miller. Mike made arrangements to meet and he arrived that afternoon. The water was rough and hunting became very difficult and Mike had to stop. Mike said he would return the next morning when the water had settled down. The next morning he went to work and soon the sound of gold was ringing in his ears. Up came the missing wedding ring and Kyle and Ally were full of excitement and smiles. It is always a pleasure to be a part of bringing smiles to peoples faces.

Corie, Rob and family from Arkansas were down on Anna Maria Island for spring break. They headed out to the beach in front of their condo at about 3 pm to enjoy the sun and surf. Corie took off her three wedding rings to put on some suntan lotion then promptly forgot about them. At some point later she remembered them and went looking for them. She couldn’t remember exactly when she had removed them or for sure where she had set them down. The whole family looked and looked but could not find them. The most important ring had a beautiful solitary diamond which had been in Corie’s grandmothers wedding ring so it was an irreplaceable heirloom. Rob decided to look for metal detectors on the internet and soon found SRARC ring finders. He contacted Joe Szemer who contacted Mike Miller and a hunt was scheduled. Once Mike arrived it was just a matter of minutes until he had the rings back on Corie’s finger. Rob said he had timed our response and from the time he texted Joe until the time we returned the rings it was just under one hour. He said they were sure they would never see the rings again but SRARC saved the day. Mike is the lucky one as he got hugs around and lots of smiles and cheers.
