Johannes, Anna, their three children Filippa, Jakob, and Oshar were visiting Longboat Key for a Christmas vacation from Sweden. Johannes knew that his wedding ring was very loose and needed to be resized and had vowed to not wear it to the beach. On the day after Christmas he forgot all this and found himself out on the beach tossing a football back and forth with his son Jakob. He was standing right on the edge of the dry sand where the waves came up lapping at his feet. As he reached out to catch the ball he saw his ring slide off his finger and into the wet sand. He and about 30 other hotel guests spent an hour trying to find the ring and then someone suggested he contact SRARC ring finders. He googled the ring finders and found Howard Mets who contacted Mike Miller. Mike made arrangements with Johannes to meet and a couple of hours later he arrived at the hotel. Johannes and Anna met him at the lobby and let him to where they believed the ring would be. Earlier they had drawn a line in the sand pointing to where they believed the ring was. Mike lined up with the mark in the sand, took about five steps out into the water and hit a target. With one scoop, up came the ring and Mike turned and started walking back to the dry sand. Johannes couldn’t believe that it might have been found but when Mike extended the scoop and he looked inside there sat his ring. He his family and the whole beach erupted in cheers. We took pictures and with smiles on everyone’s face return to the hotel lobby and sat down for a happy visit with this wonderful family. What a Christmas joy to see the smiles on their faces and have a chance to meet new friends from across the pond.

Lauren and Louis were down from North Carolina for a mini vacation without the children. They spent a few days in Miami and then came over to Longboat Key for a few days at the beach. Lauren was wandering in about waist deep water when she felt her wedding rings slip off. She frantically searched but to no avail. Her husband Louis, found SRARC ring finders on the Internet and contacted Joe Szemer. Joe contacted Mike Miller and arrangements were made for a hunt the next morning. Mike arrived about 8:00 AM, got directions and about 20 minutes later up came the wedding rings. When Lauren saw the rings in Mike’s scoop she burst into tears, gave mike a big hug, and then began smiling ear to ear. What a great way to save a vacation.

Jessica and family were up from Venice, Fl to visit with her sister Laura and family living on Anna Maria Island. Laura and her family will soon be leaving for an extended trip to France so on Sunday afternoon both family’s headed to down the block to the beach to enjoy some time on the sand and playing in the Gulf. Jessica took both her engagement and wedding ring off and stored them safely in her shorts pocket. At some point in the afternoon, Jessica and Laura decided to play teenage girls again and started doing cartwheels up and down the beach. As evening approached they all packed up and headed for home. As they walked off the Beach Jessica reached into her pocket to get her rings and terror struck her heart. Nothing was in her pocket. They all returned to the beach and searched but soon realized it was fruitless since they didn’t have any real idea when the rings had been lost. Jessica’s husband googled lost and found Anna Maria Island and the SRARC ring finders popped up. Jessica was soon in touch with Joe Szemer who contacted Mike Miller. Mike made arrangements to meet with Laura the next morning to do the hunt. Laura staked out the area where they had been and Mike went to work. After about 45 minutes Mike got a hit and took a scoop of sand and dumped it out of the scoop. Right away he saw a shiny white gold object reflected in the sun. He motioned Laura over and pointed. Laura excitedly kneeled down and recovered the engagement ring. She then looked up at Mike and said “ There is another ring”. Mike took a swing over the same sand pile and then pinpointed the spot for her. She reached into the sand and up came the wedding ring. She couldn’t believe we had found them and instantly called her sister with the great news. Jessica was already in route from Venice in hopes the rings would be found and began crying as she received the good news. Mike was invited in for coffee while we waited for Jessica to arrive. After she arrived and the rings had been returned we all sat around the table and had a great conversation about their whole families adventures in moving from France to the USA. I want to welcome them all to the USA and thank them for their kind treatment of me. Most of all I loved to see the BIG SMILES on their faces as we parted ways.

Drew joined his mother, father, and brother for a short vacation away from Massachusetts. They met at Turtle Beach on Siesta Key. They headed down to the beach and spent the afternoon playing in the sand and Gulf of Mexico. That morning, Drew had bargained for and purchased a silver bracelet. He wore it proudly to the beach and into the gulf. After rough housing in the water with his dad and brother, he returned to the beach and then noticed he no longer had the bracelet. He spent the next 2 days snorkeling in search of the bracelet but without any luck. His mother did some searching on the internet and finally discovered the SRARC Ring Finders group. Using his mother’s information, he contacted Howard Metts who did a call out for team members. Mike Shuler, Bill Gallant, and Mike Miller answered the call and met Drew the next morning. Drew gave them the perimeters for the hunt and off they went on the search. Mike and Mike headed out to the first sandbar to begin the hunt while Bill began a grid closer in. Mike Miller was a few feet in front of Mike Shuler and had just climbed up onto the sandbar when Shuler held the bracelet up in his hand. Shifty Shuler had done it again, 5 minutes into the hunt and he single handedly turned the hunt into a successful recovery. As we walked back to shore Drew stood up in disbelief and as Mike handed him the bracelet a big smile spread across his face. It is always a great pleasure to be part of a successful recovery and return.

Chuck and his wife were relaxing in chairs on the bulkhead of their Siesta Key Condo watching the boats pass by on the inland waterway. Chuck was leaning forward fidgeting with his wedding ring and it slipped over the end of his finger and out of his hand. The ring bounced once on the concrete bulkhead and dropped into the water. He got a small net and some scuba gear hoping to scrap it up out of the bottom but he had no luck. Later that evening his wife found SRARC Ring Finders and contacted Howard Metts. Howard transmitted a callout and Mike took the challenge, contacted Chuck and arranged to meet him in the 4th of July. It was a very difficult hunt due to a large amount of iron spread throughout area. After about an hour and a half of hunting Mike was able to separate the ring from the iron and out of the deep it came. Now this was a pretty good day for Chuck, he was able to celebrate Independence Day, His 41st wedding anniversary, and the return of his wedding ring originally placed on his finger 41 years ago. He was a very happy man.

They have a condo close to the water and after joining a few friends they all headed to the sandy beach to visit and play in the water. After a short time on the sand Cindy and three of her girlfriends decided to hit the water. As they swam and floated in the water, Cindy felt her wedding ring slide off of her finger. She stopped and stood right where it had fallen. Everyone gathered around her and looked for the ring but it was not to be found. Cindy was heartbroken because after 40 years of marriage, on their anniversary, they had just recently replaced her original wedding set with this new set. Later that evening, after talking with her daughter, her son -in-law told her about the ring finders. She found SRARC on the site and contacted Joe Szemer. Joe contacted Mike Miller and arrangements were made to do a hunt the next morning. Mike and Dane Trask meet Cindy and John on the beach and got the story of what had happened and the area where the ring had been lost. The hunt was on but there was nothing happening until about 2 hours later. Just as Dane needed to head home, Mike took a couple more swings and got the hit. Needless to say we had a very happy couple and their friends and family when they heard the news that the ring had been found.

As they setup their spot on the beach, Samantha put her wedding rings safely away in her wallet and went in for a swim. While she was away Chris ordered some drinks and when they came, he opened Samantha’s wallet (he did not know she had placed her rings in the wallet for safe keeping) and paid for the drinks. Later, when they were packing up to leave, Samantha opened her wallet and found her engagement ring, but her wedding ring was missing. They looked around the area but could not find the ring. That evening Chris found SRARC on the internet and Mike Miller agreed to go search the next morning. After meeting at the site, Mike went to work and in about 4 swings found the ring. Chris was nothing but smiles as he was in big trouble. I imagine Samantha had a big smile as Chris came back in holding her ring.

Matt, his wife Tracey and Chris, his wife Amy came down from Indiana to enjoy Fall break with their children here in Florida. Chris and family went to Orlando to investigate the theme parks and Matt and family came to Anna Maria Island. Since they were friends, Matt invited Chris and family for a day at the beach. After they arrived from Orlando, both families headed together to the beach. They got settled on the sand and Matt and Chris headed out into the water and started throwing a football back and forth. On one of the throws, Chriss saw and felt his Gold and Platinum wedding ring fly of his finger. He knew right where it went into the water so he stood right there. They searched and searched but in the end could not find the ring. Later that evening Chris and family had to return to Orlando without his ring. Later that evening Matt googled “lost Rings on Anna Maria” and found SRARC Ring Finders. He contacted Joe Szemer who contacted Mike Miller who then did a callout for hunters. Mike Shuler, Dane Trask, and Mike all came together and meet Matt at the location the ring was lost. They got the information about where the ring was lost and went to work. About 20 minutes later Mike Miller got the sweet sound of Platinum in his ears and up came the lost ring in his scoop. There were lots if smiles as we waked back into the beach with the ring held high in the air. We don’t know when Chris will find out he has had his ring returned because we understand his wife Amy has some trickery planned, but we are sure he will end up with a great big smile on his face too.

Deb was at Siesta Key beach on a girls weekend enjoying the sun and sand. They laid out their beach towels and helped each other put suntan lotion on for protection. They talked and went for a walk and when they came back one of Deb’s friends grabbed her towel and shook the sand off. There were three rings on the towel and they all flew off in different directions. When they realized what had just happened panic followed as they frantically searched in the sand for the rings and in a short time they had recovered two of the lost rings. They continued to search but with no result. Later, Deb found SRARC Ring Finders on the internet and contacted Howard Metts. When Howard put out the call Mike Miller was just passing through the area and diverted to the lost ring location. After a few minutes of hunting, the ring was found and returned to a very happy Deb.
