Rings aren’t the only precious lost items that can be found with a metal detector. I got a call from Matt this morning telling me about an iPhone that was lost in the snow in a driveway near Sundance Resort. I was able to meet Matt and some of his friends. We searched for about a half hour, and fortunately we were able to find the phone. Unfortunately, it had been mashed by a snow plow. 🙁 At least we know that the phone wasn’t stolen, and now the data and pictures on it can be recovered.

I received a phone call from someone named Dan who was visiting on vacation from Utah with his family. They were in south Corona Del Mar, and lost his titanium ring in the sand. After a long conversation, I found out the ring was lost far up on the sand, away from the water. It was higher up than the next oncoming high tide, so I knew it was safe and would still be there in the morning. The location was secluded. I spoke to him and asked him to mark the area with some smaller logs that were nearby. I went down to meet him Sunday morning at about 9:00 am and took about a five minute walk from the main beach. He showed me the area where he thought he lost it, and lo and behold, I heard a long RING, and the ring was in the first target that I dug. He was amazed at the speediness of the recovery of the ring and was very grateful. He called his wife and kids right away to inform them of the good news, thanked me, and was on his way. I had a very gratifying ride home and the happiness of finding a ring made the ride home a lot shorter.
