Tungsten Carbide Wedding Band Lost in Sand.. Newport Beach, CA. ..Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Newport Beach .. Lifeguard Tower 74 .. Adrian lost his Tungsten carbide wedding band .. A week before his second wedding anniversary. He placed it in a Baggie with his Celphone. Noticed it missing on the walk back to the car..

Adrian called me saying he was on the beach using a metal detector that the Newport Beach lifeguard had loaned him. His Tungsten Carbide wedding ring of had fallen out of a plastic baggy. He had put his phone and ring in the baggy for safe keeping.
Waking off the beach to his car he discovered his ring missing from the baggy. After 2 hours with a bounty hunter metal detector, he was totally frustrated. I think it is a nice gesture for the city to loan out metal detectors with sand scoop. The problem is, these are low end detectors and learning how to work a metal detector when you have a important valuable sentimental keepsake is a shot in the dark. I believe that people are mislead when they can’t find their important item. They walk away believing their keepsake is lost forever. ” Not True ” Get someone with experience. Example: You can’t jump in a car and drive it safely if you have ever driven a car.
It was a two hour grid search with a happy ending. It was getting dark and I was running out of search area with Arian giving me a look of giving up. The Tungsten Carbide ring just about blew out my ears when I finally past the coil over it hiding in the dry sand. Adrian heard that metal on metal clanking in my sand scoop. His attitude changed, when he told me with out seeing it, “That’s my ring”

Lost Rental Car Keys .. Huntington State Beach, CA. .. Found in Dumpster

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

I had a call from Jason in Huntington State Beach. He believed it should be an easy search as he could get me to the exact location where He and his family had spent their day. They are visiting from Georgia. This was a rental car and the rental car company could not find a spare key. It was going to be an expensive and time consuming process to fix this problem.
The call came just as I was finishing my first attempt to find (4) rings lost in the sand 3 miles away, near the Balboa Pier. It would be a few hours till the beach at the pier would clear of people to give me the opportunity to do a proper grid search. The lady that lost her rings had given up hope, thinking that somebody on the beach had found them first. I did return and found the rings after searching for the keys.
I met Jason at Huntington State Beach near lifeguard tower #7. After searching the first area, he showed me his path to the car. That was a much larger location, but I started a grid. He walked back to the restrooms where he spotted a guy in a dumpster collecting recyclable cans. Then he remembered tossing garbage in the same trash dumpster. He asked the guy to see if there might be car keys in the bottom of the dumpster. Yes! Jason’s car keys lying in amongst the trash.
Well, I didn’t find the keys, but I did eliminate the areas where they could have been hiding. Also, the timing of our search happen to coincide with the man that had been dumpster diving..
Jason did reward the guy, who said he would be happy for something to help him buy dinner. I was also given a gratuity which is greatly appreciated.
