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.

Lost Heirloom Ring Found At Madeira Beach

David & Melissa, from Atlanta, were just starting their vacation and celebrating their 20th anniversary. They just recently started wearing some very special rings that had been passed down to them. The rings were given to them by Melissa’s Great Uncle David & Great Aunt Lois who had been married in the 1920’s and were married for 70 years. Great Aunt Lois was blind for most of their marriage and Great Uncle David was truly devoted to her. David was wading in the surf with his daughter when he felt his ring fall off his finger. He and his family searched for several hours and had finally gave up figuring it was lost for good when a passing metal detectorist on shore had told them to search the internet for water detecting services that may be able to help. That in turn got Melissa find Ring Finders and in touch with SRARC and team member Stan Flack. A hunt was quickly organized for later that day and Stan along with Ed Osmar and Mike Shuler gave it a go in very rough waters. After about 45 minutes and a few dousing, Stan was able to walk over the ring and scoop it up from the ocean. A shocked and elated David and Melissa couldn’t believe it was found and vowed to never wear the ring in the ocean again. Great job to the Ringer finders group for sticking that one out. It was really rough out there.

Lost ring recovered at Madeira Beach

Gail and her Niece were enjoying the day at Madeira Beach. Gail decided to apply sun tan lotion and took off her ring and put it on her lap. Later she stood up and just then remembered the ring was in her lap and now it vanished in the soft white sand. After a search for lost rings on the beach she found SRARC and called Tom Jones who in turn passed the message on to team member Stan Flack. Stan was nearby and after a call with some details, took to the beach in search of the ring. After about 20 minutes the ring was recovered. Stan hustled the rings over to where Gail was staying as she was waiting on her Uber ride to the airport. An elated Gail hugged Stan and smiled with delight just as the driver packed her luggage in the car. Just in the nick of time!
