Special Ring Lost at Clearwater Beach then Found and Returned

Elizabeth, her husband Jonas and son Elias are on holiday from Helsingborg Sweden and ready to enjoy all that Florida has to offer.  The water was warm and welcoming as Elizabeth swished her hands in the clear blue Gulf of Mexico.  As she lifted her hands up she realized that the ring her husband had gotten in Thailand and given to her 16 years ago was gone.  Heartbroken, they searched for hours with no luck.  That is when they went online and contacted Mike Miller.  Mike contacted Paul Hill who he knew was off today and available for a rapid response.  He made his way to Clearwater Beach and met up with Elizabeth.  Paul looked at his watch, 3:29, picked his north to south line based on some questions he asked and on tide information that he had be given by Mike on the drive over.  Thirty or so feet later he got a solid 12-27 signal, presenting his scoop to Elizabeth she reached in and retrieved her white gold and ruby ring then almost knocked Paul over with big hug.  Quick look at his watch…3:34.  The happy family headed back up to the beach ready to enjoy the rest of their 3 week vacation!
SRARC is very happy that we were able to help and wish them safe travels back home.

Wedding Ring lost and Found then Returned on St Pete Beach, Florida

Jim and Mary Beth down from North Dakota were married the evening before in front of the Sirata Hotel on St Pete Beach. The next afternoon Jim was playing paddle ball with some family members and suddenly realized he no longer had his brand new wedding ring on his finger. A large group of family members were staying at the hotel and they all searched diligently but could not find it. One of the family members stopped a passing beach patrol officer and was told to try and contact SRARC. She called the number immediately and Mike Miller answered. He and his son Jeffery were just a few miles away at Madeira Beach and headed right down to the Sirata.

Most of the family met them there and explained where Jim had spent most of his time which was a very small area of about 30 by 30 sq. feet. Mike and Jeffery went right to work from both ends of the area. In about 5 minutes Mike got a good hit and up came the ring. It was a great feeling when the whole family cheered as Jim put his wedding ring back onto the finger it belongs on. Lots of smiles and back patting ended the event. We are so happy we could keep this wedding experience a great memory.

Lost and Found Wedding Ring Returned at Siesta Key, Florida

As he walked out of the water, Zane realized he had lost his wedding ring. Devastated, he told his wife and then all the family joined in the search but with no luck. They had all come to Florida from Atlanta, Georgia to enjoy the beaches and then take the kids to Disney World so this event was just not in the plan.

Zane had been tossing a football in the water with his brother and never felt the ring come off his finger. His sister-in-law Kimberly immediately googled lost ring Sarasota and SRARC popped up on The Ring Finders. She contacted Tom who passed her on to Mike. They had people waiting in the area that the ring was lost but they needed to leave for their trip to Orlando soon. Mike headed down to Siesta Key right away and arrived as they began to pack up their beach gear. After getting the lay of the land, Mike went to work and after about 30 minutes the ring came back out of the water and into Zane’s hand. Zane was all smiles and they all were soon on their way to Disney world I’m sure to the children’s delight.

Diamond Wedding Ring Lost, Found and Returned on Longboat Key, Florida

Kara and Joe were visiting Long Boat Key from Oklahoma City. They went out to the beach behind the condo where they were staying with their family. Kara handed her husband Joe her wedding band while she was putting sun screen on her daughter. Joe put the ring on his little finger so as not to lose it. After a while, Kara remembered that she had given her ring to Joe asked for it back. That is when Joe realized that the ring had fallen off. He knew that it couldn’t be far since he had not moved from the area by the umbrella.

They got a sand sifter and started sifting but no luck, they could not find the ring. Joe googled metal detector rental and contacted Phil Myers’s Detector Depot in Tampa who referred him to Tom Jones. Joe contacted Tom and asked for his help. They had circled the beach chairs around the area and kept a vigil till Tom could get to the site. Tom arrived and headed out to the beach with Kara. She pointed out the hole in the sand where the umbrella had been and said that the ring had to be somewhere around it. Tom turned on his detector and started hunting around the hole, once he circled the hole he swung the coil over the umbrella hole and got a hit, he yelled out “it’s in the hole”. He kicked some sand out of the hole with his foot and Kara’s brother in law who was watching intently said, “there it is” as he reached down and picked up the ring.

Needless to say Kara started jumping up and down as she ran to Tom and hugged him.

Madeira Beach Wedding Ring Lost and Found, Then returned by SRARC

Dan was at the beach on Madeira Beach with his family enjoying the water when he realized that his ring was lose and decided to take it off and put it on a larger finger. When he took it off he fumbled it and it fell into the water and it disappeared in the sand. At this time Dan used good logic and had his father in law stand in the spot so Dan could triangulate some land marks to make it easier to locate the spot.

He Googled metal detector rental and found SRARC. He called Stan Flack who was just finishing a hunt on Sand Key Beech and Stan told him he would be there as soon as possible. Stan was joined by Ed Osmar and the two started hunting. Within 10 minutes Stan found the ring and returned it to a very happy Dan.

Wedding Ring Lost and Found, Then Returned on Pass-A-Grille Beach, Florida

Anthony and Ryan were down from Pittsburg visiting friends on Pass-A-Grille Beach just in time to experience Tropical Storm Colin. On Monday, June 6, Anthony noticed the Bimini top on the pontoon boat behind the house where they were staying was starting to blow off. He went out in the wind and rain to remove the top and inadvertently his wedding band fell off his finger and into the water between the dock and the boat. Thinking that it was gone forever he contacted some friends looking for suggestions on how to get his ring back.

One of his friends has a friend that is a member of Treasure Net Forum who contacted Stan Flack to try and locate the ring. Stan went out on Thursday and hunted for a short while and decided to try the search when the tide went out later that evening. He contacted Tom Jones to do another hunt at low tide.

Friday evening Tom and Joe Szemer went to the site to perform a second hunt. Just like most docks there was a lot of trash on the bottom. After 30 minutes and recovering everything from bolts to electric motor parts Tom moved under the boat motor and got a good target. When his scoop surfaced the ring was laying on the top of the ball of mud. Tom yelled out, “I got it”. Everyone on the dock ran over to watch Tom hand the ring up to Anthony.

Thanks again to the Ringfinders Group of SRARC, another couple will be headed back home with a great story and not a sad memory.

Wedding Ring Lost, Found and Returned on Clearwater Beach, Florida

Jason and his wife were visiting St, Petersburg from Walton, KY. While here they decided to take the family to Clearwater Beach for the day. Upon arriving at the beach they took some pictures then decided to go in the water. Jason walked out into the water about knee deep and at that time his wife asked him if he should take his ring off to make sure he didn’t   loose it. At that time he looked down and it was already gone. They went back to their umbrella and looked at the pictures they had just taken and sure enough it was on his finger right before he went in the water.

After looking for the ring for some time they reluctantly got in the car and headed back to St. Petersburg. Jason was broken hearted because he would never see his wedding band again. That afternoon he decided to search the internet to see if there was someone that could hunt for the ring. He found the ringfinders.com and contacted Tom Jones. Tom told Jason to meet him at Clearwater Beach at 6:30 that same evening.

Tom, Ed Osmar, and Dimitur Alipiev met the couple at the beach and started hunting. As the three were searching the water Ed noticed the couple standing in the water about 20 yards north of the area they had indicated the ring was lost. Ed thought, I bet that is where they really lost it. Moments after he reach the spot Ed called out “is it silver colored?” Jason and his wife ran over and she read the inscription inside the band and yelled out “Oh my God that is it”. After a round of hugs for all, the couple left the beach to enjoy the rest of their vacation that was destined to be a bad memory but now has a “great story” as Jason puts it. The link below is a news clip of the event.

Wedding Ring Lost and Found at Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota, Florida

Chris body surfed into the beach on tropical storm Colin’s waves, rolled over and then felt his wedding ring slip off of his finger and disappear into the ocean forever.

Chris and Michelle finally got away for a long awaited vacation to the warm waters of Florida this week. Then Tropical Storm Colin showed up to wreak it and then Chris lost his ring making this vacation a disaster. A couple of hours later Michelle googled “lost ring Siesta Key” and up popped SRARC on The Ring Finders. She contacted Tom and he passed her onto Mike Miller. Mike set a hunt up for the next day at 5:00 pm. Mike and Mark Sillence showed up and went to work after a few instructions from Michelle and Chris. About 10 minutes later Mike got lucky and pulled the ring from the surf. Chris and Michelle were overjoyed and we at SRARC are happy to report that with the ring returned and the weather turning much nicer the vacation will turn out to be a fond memory with a good story to share with friends and family. Team SRARC just keeps collecting those smiles.

Watch Lost and Found, Then Returned at One Tree Island Clearwater, Florida

Robert’s Watch was lost as he jumped from the aft of his boat and caught it on the edge. He and a boating buddy had been enjoying the day playing on the island when the boat began drifting away from the shore so he quickly jumped in to push it back in. The watch was a gift from his wife and very important to him. They tried snorkeling for it but after a few days decided to ask for help. They found SRARC on The Ring Finders and contacted Mike Miller. After an unsuccessful hunt Mike told them he would look for a good low tide day and schedule another hunt. For two weeks Robert and his wife scuba dived the area looking for the watch. Three weeks later a great low tide appeared and the SRARC team showed up for the hunt. Robert and His wife ferried all 8 of them out to the island. The team, Jerry and Debbie Schneider, Paul Hill, Howard Metts, Dimitur Alipiev, Mark Sillence, Joe Montione, and Mike went to work. About 45 minutes later Jerry and Debbie shouted “we found it”. We all joined in and called Robert over so we could return his watch. As you can see there were lots of smiles. Congratulations Jerry and Debbie on a great recovery.

Wedding Ring Lost and Found, then Returned on Madeira Beach, Florida

Jim was at the beach enjoying the day with his family.  He decided to go for a swim and took his ring off for safe keeping, placing it on the beach bag where they had set up.  When he got out someone had moved the bag and the ring was gone.  The family tried sifting the sand for an hour or so making 2 large piles of sifted sand and then gave up.   Not wanting to give up,  Jim’s daughter Chris googled metal detectors and came across the ring finders page where she found SRARC.  Chris called Tom Jones who then passed the information on to team member Stan Flack who was already out hunting in the area.  Stan made his way to Chris at the beach and started hunting the area the family had circled, no ring.  Then Stan knocked down sift pile #1, no ring.  On to sift pile #2, bingo to the delight of one bag moving daughter (shhh).  Chris called her dad down to the beach to share the news and smiles all the way around.
