SUCCESSFUL RING RECOVERY ON ST. PETERSBURG BEACH, FLORIDA

Dan & Erin were at St. Pete Beach enjoying a hot August summer day. Erin had decided to take her rings off so as not to lose them in the water.   After leaving the beach, Erin noticed her rings were missing and remembered she had taken them off on the beach and put them on the towel. Dan & Erin went back to look but had no luck. A quick Google search connected them with SRARC team member, Mike Shuler.  Mike made arrangements to meet the couple at the beach at noon that same day.   A few sweeps of the coil and the ring was found within minutes! Erin was ecstatic to have her rings back on her finger. Great work Mike, keep those smiles coming!

TWO RINGS SUCCESSFULLY RECOVERED ON COQUINA BEACH

Jennifer & Eddie of St. Petersburg, (formerly of New York) were with friends enjoying Coquina Beach when Jennifer lost two rings!  Before going into the water, Jennifer had safely stored the rings in a pouch on their beach umbrella. However, after packing up, she soon realized they were not in the pouch!  The couple contacted SRARC and Ring Finder member Wayne Cree went on the hunt. Jennifer had the spot marked and Wayne thought he was super lucky when he immediately found a dime, then a penny! About five minutes later, Wayne found the first ring and thirty seconds later, the second ring. Needless to say, Jennifer & Eddie were thrilled.  Way to go, Wayne. Keep the change!

Quick thinking Steve hit the “man overboard” button on the boat’s GPS and marked the spot.  Steve found the SRARC website, contacted Tom Jones who passed the information on to Howard Metts.  Two days later, Howard, Jeanine Metts, Ed Osmar and Dimitur Alipiev met with Steve on the boat ramp for a ride to the island.  Using the GPS, Steve was able to position the boat very closely to where Audrey had lost the ring.  After about ten minutes of water hunting, Howard got a good signal and the ring was in his scoop! Steve was ecstatic, and immediately called Audrey who was overjoyed her ring was found! Great teamwork everyone!

Young assistant recovers lost ring in Clearwater Beach.

Arizona couple, Michael and his wife Katlyn, were spending vacation time in Clearwater Beach.  While tossing a ball in the water at the hotel’s private beach, Katlyn dove for the ball and sadly watched her wedding band fall off into the water. Michael found our club online and contacted Tom Jones, who passed on the information to Howard Metts. Howard called Michael and set up a time to meet before they left for the airport.

Howard started hunting in the area he was directed to hunt in (chest to neck deep water) and retrieved three targets, but not the ring.  Connor, who was visiting from Michigan with his family, was swimming in the search area with goggles.  After an hour of hunting and just before Mike and Kat were to leave for home, Connor popped up and said “is this what your looking for”?  In his hand was the ring Howard had been searching for!  Mike and Kat were very grateful for Howard’s efforts and to young Connor for coming up with the ring.  Nice work, Connor! You may have just found yourself a lifetime hobby, too!   Thanks for helping.

Lost Ring Recovered With Help From Google Earth at Ft. Desoto Beach

Charles and his family were over from Tampa enjoying a day at Ft. DeSoto Beach.  Once in the water, Charles decided to put his wedding ring in a zippered pocket for safe keeping. As soon as he got it off his finger, it slipped out from his hands into the waist deep water! Charles’ wife searched the web for a metal detector and soon found and contacted SRARC.  Wayne responded to the call and arranged for some team members to search the next day. Mike Miller & Paul Hill spoke to Charles to get details as to where to begin the search.  Charles asked if a Google Earth photo would help? Absolutely! With this information, Mike & Paul set out to divide and conquer! Each man took an end of the area and worked their way to the other.  Less than two passes later, Paul had the ring in his scoop! A call was made and Charles drove over to pick up his “precious” as he called it.  Charles thanked the team profusely and as he was leaving he claimed “I’ve got my MOJO back!” We are happy for your Charles! Thanks Mike & Paul for being there for him.

Lost Heirloom Ring Recovered Sand Castle Lido Beach, Florida

Grace and her husband were down for a family reunion from Indiana for the week. On Friday afternoon, she decided to swim out to join her Mom and Dad on the sandbar in front of their hotel. Shortly after arriving she felt the ring that her grandmother had given her slip off her finger! The ring was special to Grace because her grandmother had chosen it for her from jewelry that she had had for many years. Since Grace’s grandmother was there with the family it was especially hard to tell her it was lost.

The family searched the sandbar for hours but could not find it. That night Grace did a search on Google “what to do when you lose a ring in the ocean” and up popped SRARC. She emailed the web site and Stan Flack contacted her. Stan called Mike Miller to see if he could meet her before they had to leave at 9:00 a.m. the next morning. Mike met her and got the details for the search. She said it was just up on front part of the first sandbar and off Mike went to the area she pointed to. It didn’t take long for Mike to figure out he could not walk out to the first sandbar. He had never attempted to swim with his detector and scoop but there is always a first time for everything so off he went. With a little effort, he made it and about 10 minutes later the ring came up in his scoop. The return trip was a little more difficult and he was out of breath when he finally touched bottom again. He does not recommend that anyone try that unless they have a float device so they won’t get into trouble. Grace and all her family were all very happy and amazed that the ring was recovered. SRARC is just as happy to have had the opportunity to help put a smile back on their faces! Well done, Mike! We are all glad you’re an excellent swimmer!
