Mohammad had challenged his brother to a running race across the sand to the water. He twisted his ankle in the soft sand falling down. At that moment he felt his ring slip off his finger. After the loss they spent several hours trying to find it with their fingers.
His friend Sama, found my number on line, calling me to ask if I could help them. I had just finished finding a ring in San Clemente. It would take me about 40 minutes to get to their location. She agreed to wait even though it was getting dark.
The area where the ring was lost was in dry sand in mid beach. The most important thing was, Mohammad had the location very well marked, 40 paces from the cement walk way and 20 paces from the trash can. The perfect search conditions, most times people get confused and can’t get back to the spot. It wasn’t long till I had the ring and both Mohammad and Sama were on their way home.. It would be nice if all searches were like this. This was also another time I had to hear, ” I didn’t know TheRingFinders directory existed”. Thanks to the Internet, Sama was able to find TheRingFinders when she Google searched, how to find a ring in the sand..
Mike was advised by somebody on the beach to google search TheRingFinders.com to find somebody with a metal detector. That was why I got the call. People around this part of Southern Calif. beaches are getting to know about us.
He was at Califia State Beach searching the sand using plastic baskets to sift the sand with two friends. The initial loss occurred when a towel where he put his ring was picked up dumping the ring in the sand. A few hours later he and his friends had gone to another beach 20 miles north Mike realized his loss. They returned with tools to sift the beach. Finding the exact location was also a problem.
Mike’s friends had to leave, but Mike was there to guide me to the general location. He told me it was a Titanium ring so I was listening for a low tone. We grid searched a 40x 40′ square area with no success. I expanded the area on each side, that’s when I scooped an unexpected tone that turned out to be a Tungsten Carbide ring and it was Mike’s ring.. This has happened to me several times, where the person isn’t really sure what type metal their ring is. It really doesn’t matter because I dig all targets when on a search.
Mike and the other people on the beach that had searched for the ring, were impressed at how well the metal detector worked to find the ring. If you need a plumber, electrician or other professional service call them. If you need a metal detector call or google search TheRingFinders.com.. We can find it, if it’s there. If not, we can eliminate the area, so you can direct your search to another location.
