Gold and Diamond Wedding Ring Lost, Found and Returned in Bradenton, Florida

Diane found SRARC through the Ring Finders Web site a few days after her husband had lost his gold and diamond wedding ring while working on the Christmas decorations in the front yard. He had been moving the reindeer into an area full of small bushes. He first stumbled and fell into the bushes and then fell again onto the grass as he was leaving the bushes. When he finished, he walked a block away to the mailboxes, retrieved the mail, and returned home. Later that evening he noticed that his wedding band was missing. They looked all around where he had been with no luck so Diane began to look for help on the internet.

She called Tom as soon as she found SRARC and  Mike was dispatched to see if he could find the ring. After covering the bushes, the yard, and even the grass along the sidewalk to the mailboxes with no result, Mike decided to go over the front yard one more time. In about 10 feet he hit a good tone and sure enough there was the ring. Don’t know how he missed it the first time but was sure glad he decided to go over the ground a second time.

Diane and her husband were overjoyed to have his wedding band back on his hand in time for Christmas. Srarc wishes them a very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year!!!!!!

Gold Wedding Ring Lost, Found, and Returned on Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota, Florida

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Gold Wedding Ring Lost, Found, and Returned on Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota, Florida

This is return #95 for Jay and Karen Ganz on their quest to return 100 during their detecting career. The letter below shows you why it is so meaningful to them.

Dear Karen and Jay,

On October 4th, 2015 I lost my wedding ring in the Gulf of Mexico, specifically Siesta Key Beach. I was there to act as best man for my friend’s wedding, so losing my wedding band was particularly disturbing; if I couldn’t keep track of my own wedding band, how was I supposed to be responsible for holding on to my friend’s, right?

My wife and I had known each other throughout high school. After high school was over, I left to join the Marines. During my time in the service we had both started to realize that there was something more than a friendship between us, and we started a relationship separated by thousands of miles. I had made the decision that, if we could get through my second tour in Iraq, I would ask her to marry me. Well obviously that’s exactly what happened, and when she said yes, we didn’t waste any time picking out wedding bands. I was home on leave at the time and we figured it would be one less thing to worry about later.

We went to a local jewelry store and, while she knew exactly what she wanted (and found it in moments), I hadn’t really given much thought to a wedding band. I knew I would be wearing it for the rest of my life (at least in theory) and so I ended up mulling over a few different ones. Finally, my wife pointed to one in particular and asked what I thought. It was hefty and for some reason I just liked the way it looked and felt. The jeweler pulled it out and it fit perfectly. No need to order a different size, just box it up and check one very important thing off the list of “to dos.” We got married on June 27, 2009, and watching my wife slip that ring onto my finger is still one of my favorite memories.

Fast-forward to the summer of 2015. I had completed my Bachelor’s degree and my Law School education. I was preparing to take the bar exam in Ohio and, in order to help cope with the stress, I had gotten back to a regimented diet and exercise plan. For me, when a stressful event is coming up, it usually helps for me to make sure I’m working out and eating right. So naturally, I started to shed a few pounds. The only downside to this is that my wedding band started fitting a little more loosely. By the time October rolled around, I had actually started curling my ring finger to make sure my band didn’t slip off. Until I went swimming in the ocean, that is. Playing in the waves with a couple of friends, a wave pulled the ring right off my finger. I instantly dove under to try and grab it, but I couldn’t see and the waves were strong enough to be very disorienting.

I stormed back to the condo we were all staying at, absolutely beside myself. My wife took a piece of plastic wrap and fashioned it into a make shift ring; slipping it onto my hand the same way she had six and a half years earlier. At that moment, I was reminded that stuff is just stuff. That I could lose a hundred rings and it wouldn’t change the way my wife and I feel about each other.

We returned home to Ohio and discussed getting a replacement. That would of course have to wait until I was finally able to start working as an attorney. My wife suggested posting to a internet lost and found. “Who knows, it’s not like we have something to lose, right?” Well, I couldn’t disagree with that logic, so she went ahead and made the post. Within 24 hours we were contacted by Karen. It turns out, finding my ring wasn’t as much of a long shot as I had thought.

Within a few days I received a text from my newlywed friend, who was still in Florida, currently living the dream of a great honeymoon with a bride of his own. What he sent me was a picture of my ring. I was floored. It had been almost a week since I had lost it, but sure enough that was my wedding band.

My mind raced, and June 27, 2009 came flooding back into my mind’s eye: her dress; her smile; her laugh; her beauty. So many words echoed in my ears: “my friend;” “my love;” “my wife.”

Stuff is just stuff. But that doesn’t mean it can’t have sentimental value. Getting my ring back wasn’t just getting back a piece of gold. It was getting back the ring my wife placed on my hand the day we said “I do.” It was also a reminder of how amazing people can be. Total strangers, with no expectation of reimbursement, had gone out of their way to return something to me. I can’t say thank you enough, and one day I hope to be able to do the same for another. Thank you.

Engagement Ring Recovered at Lido Beach, Sarasota

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Andrew and Danielle were recently engaged and were spending a day at the beach to relax and just spend time together. They had been enjoying the sun and decided to play a little in the water. Andrew grabbed a ball and headed out onto the water and Danielle quickly followed. As she ran into the water Andrew tossed her the ball. Danielle leaped to catch the ball and felt her beautiful engagement ring fly off of her finger. They couldn’t believe it was gone. Andrew had saved for 5 years so he could get just the right ring. They borrowed swim goggles and recruited others with swim goggles to help search for the ring but they couldn’t find it. Andrew started to look for metal detectors on his smart phone. The Ring Finders popped up with a recent recovery made by SRARC. He contacted us and because they were there at the beach waiting Mike Miller made a quick response request and then headed for the location. After arriving and getting the exact search area narrowed down, Mike went to work. It took about 15 minutes to find the ring and return it to a disbelieving Danielle. What fun it was to see the big grins on their faces when they had the ring back on Danielle’s finger.

Anna Marie Island Gold and Diamond Wedding Rings Lost then Recovered

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

David and Jennifer were down from Virginia on a mini vacation and house hunting trip. While relaxing one evening at sunset Jennifer was in the water and David tossed her a ball. The ball landed just in front of her and she plunged her hand into the water to get it. She felt her wedding set fly right off her finger. She called to David for help but just then a big wave slammed into her and moved her away from where she had lost the rings. They looked until after dark but had no luck finding them. Both David and Jennifer are Gulf war veterans and while stationed in Iraq someone had stolen her first wedding set and now losing another set was just devastating. Jennifer started searching the internet for help and soon found SRARC on the Ring Finders site. She called Tom who called Mike and we set up a meet time and search for 7:00 am the next morning. Mike went right to work when he got there and searched for about an hour and a half before hitting the target he was looking for. He flipped a “thumbs up” toward the beach and got two great big smiles in return. It was a pleasure to meet both David and Jennifer and I want to offer them a big “Thank You” for their service to our country. It gave me a great big smile to be able to serve them in a small way. I look forward to hooking up with them again after they have relocated to Florida.

Blind Pass Beach Wedding Band Recovery

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Andy and his wife and two children were down at Blind Pass Beach on Manasota key enjoying a Sunday on the gulf. Andy was snorkeling along the shore line looking for shells and sharks teeth. He noticed his ring on the hand he was digging through sand with and thought to himself “I should take that off before I lose it”. Then the thought promptly left his mind. A little later he was out of the water getting a drink from the cooler and noticed that his ring was gone. He and his wife looked everywhere and he even put his goggle’s back on and scoured the gulf floor where he had been. The ring was not to be found.

About a week later Andy was looking to rent a metal detector so he could try and find his ring. In the process he found SRARC on the Ring Finders site. He gave Mike Miller a call and explained what had happened. Mike setup a meet time for the next morning and put an email out to the team. Andy, Mike, Ed Osmar met at the site at 7:00 am. Andy gave us the particulars on where he thought he had lost the ring and we went to work. After about ½ an hour of focusing on the area that Andy thought he had lost it in, we started to spread out with Ed moving up onto the shore and Mike moving a little deeper. A little while later Bingo!!! Ed hit a target and it was the ring. When Ed showed Andy where he had found it Andy said it was right where the cooler had been sitting. It must have fallen off when he was getting a drink. Well it is all history now. Andy was overjoyed and he said his wife was going to very happy. Ed and I sent him away with a big smile on his face and I gave a big high five to Ed for a job well done.

Lost Wedding Ring Returned on Siesta Key, FL

from Tampa Bay (Florida, United States)

Brandon and his wife were launching a kayak off of his parent’s dock when all of a sudden his wedding ring slipped off into the water. They could see the ring sitting on top of the silt and decided to try and net it with the pool skimmer. When they dipped it in the silt was stirred up and the ring sank deeper into the muck. After the water cleared the ring was gone. They got some swim masked out and tried to relocate the ring, but no luck. Brandon’s Dad searched the internet for help and found us. Brandon called and we scheduled a search for the next morning at 9:00 am. Brandon had to go to work so we met his Mom at the site and within 1 minute we located the ring and returned it to his Mother. As you can see she was very happy!!!!.
