I got a call yesterday from Ryan who had been hanging out at the beach just south of Solimar in Ventura with her sister when she noticed her engagement and wedding rings were missing from her finger. The problem was that it had happened the day before and now she was back in Orange County where she lives and her rings were somewhere she hoped in the sand. I told her I would head out there asap and while on the way out there I realized that since today was the hottest day of the year the beach traffic was going to be off the charts. Sure enough I got there and the location she thought she was in was wall to wall people so I had to be patient in order to search and wait for some space to open up. Finally it did and if bottle caps were gold I’d be able to retire. In the 20×20 place I was hunting I pulled out 32 caps and tabs and foil. Figuring I had removed all the bad sounds I got a tone I liked, scooped the sand and in the scoop was a big rock! Under the big rock though was another rock, though this one had a little more value! I had one of the rings but not the wedding band itself. I put another 30 minutes into the search and expanded it into several different directions but no wedding band turned up.
When I called Ryan she was in tears because the diamond in her ring had been passed down to her and if we were only going to find one that was the one to find. I got her sisters address in Ventura and delivered the ring to her. If you have lost a ring or other jewelry don’t hesitate to call or text me at 805-290-5009.
I got a call on Sunday evening from an upset Cynthia about a ring she had lost at Leo Carrillo beach in Malibu. She had been given the responsibility of holding on to her husbands wedding ring while he went out and surfed a set on a Sunday afternoon. She had put the wedding ring on her thumb and played with her son in the sand. Three hours later on the way home Andrew asked for his ring back and to her horror, it was no longer secure on her thumb. I’ve found several rings for husbands under this same scenario. Give the ring to their wife for safekeeping while they surf only to lose it innocently later due to various reasons, mostly involving having to chase their kids all over the beach while their husband surfs. I scheduled a time to get out there the next day and I was pretty confident that I wouldn’t have to worry about anyone else getting it before me due to the extreme wind conditions that were forecasted for Monday. He sent me a pic of where he thought it could possibly be so i could plan my hunt.
I got there a little ahead of Andrew and Cynthia and started to grid the area. Once I met with Andrew he was able to get me a little closer to where he remembered they were sitting and after cleaning up the area of all it’s bottle caps I got a solid hit and I knew we had gold in the scoop. Needless to say we were all overjoyed at getting Andrew his ring back and release his wife from any type of guilt for losing it. We all make mistakes and it’s the best day ever to help bring restoration back to family’s.
If you ever find yourself in the same situation or just can’t find your valuables where you left them give me a call or text at 805-290-5009.
