Gold and Diamond Engagement Ring Lost, Recovered, and Returned at Fred Howard Beach in Tarpon Springs

Brittany was at Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs enjoying the day with family. She put her engagement ring on her bag so she could put sunscreen on her daughter. She looked up to see her young daughter running towards the water. When it was time to leave she forgot that the ring was on the bag. Packed up and headed home. Realizing later that the ring was gone she was devistated. A friend of hers heard about it and contacted his friend and SRARC member Mark Prue. Mark couldn’t get away so he contacted another member Stan Flack. Stan and his wife Linda headed up to the beach to search. After an hour drive it only took 10 minutes for Stan to recover and reunite it with Brittney.
SRARC wishes her and her future husband all the best and are happy that we could make the journey a little bit smoother!
Thanks to the Flacks for being so willing to share of your time and talents.

Diamond Solitaire Engagement Ring Lost and Found, then returned on Clearwater Beach, Florida

Amy was in town visiting her sister’s family at their beach house on Clearwater Beach. On Wednesday night she remembered taking her engagement ring off when she went to bed and did not remember putting it back on Thursday morning even though her mother had seen it on her finger while visiting on Thursday. That night Amy realized that the ring was missing. The whole family searched everywhere on the property and could not find the ring. They even brought all the trash back in and went through it.

Amy had to leave the following morning but once she got home she found SRARC and called Tom pleading for help. It seemed to Tom like a wild goose chase but he agreed to come out and search the yard if for no other reason but to disprove the chance that it could be in the yard around the pool.

Tom arrived and met Amy’s Brother in Law Mike. He immediately went to work with his detector and pin pointer searching the gravel area around the pool with no luck. He then went outside the yard and started searching the area around the parking spot. Eventually reaching the trash canister as his detector was swinging over the gravel near the trash the setting sun bounced off something in the grass just 4 feet from the trash. It was Amy’s diamond ring. At that same time Mike came out to Tom and asked “No luck yet hey?” Tom said look right there as he had not even picked the ring up yet.

Mike called Amy to tell her the good news. She answered and could not believe that the ring had been found and broke out into tears of Joy.

Siesta Key Beach Gold and Diamond Wedding Ring Set Lost, Found, and Returned by SRARC

Joe and Michelle were over from Jupiter, Florida to visit with some of their friends who had come down from St Johns, Canada for a warm weekend vacation at the beach. To be sure Michelle didn’t lose her wedding ring while on the beach or in the water, she put the ring into the pocket on her beach chair. They all enjoyed a great day in the sun at Siesta Key beach. When it came time to go, they folded up their chairs and headed for their car. While loading the chair into the car Michelle remembered her ring. They looked all over the car and then returned to the beach where they had been setting. After searching for a while someone on the beach mentioned that they needed to rent a metal detector. Joe googled lost ring Siesta Key and up popped SRARC on The Ring Finders site. Joe called Mike Miller and Mike headed right down to the beach while they were still there. After a few passes over the area they had been setting in, he hit the ring. When he handed Michelle the ring, she got a giant smile on her face and gave him a big hug. It was great to see the smiles on both of their faces and the hug was awesome. SRARC is glad to have been able to save the day for Joe and Michelle.

Wedding Ring Lost at Clearwater Beach (found) by SRARC Ring Finders

Mike was down from Virginia visiting Clearwater Beach with his wife and 3 children for spring break. Yesterday afternoon he stepped out onto the beach and into the water. When he got about knee deep he thought it might be a good idea to remove his wedding ring and store it in his pocket for safe keeping. As he was pulling it off of his finger it slipped from his grip and fell into the water. After frantically searching on his hands and knees for a while it became clear that he would not find it. He returned to his room and worried about it for several hours before searching the internet for help. When he did, the Ring Finders popped right up and he found the SRARC Ring Finders group. He called that evening and we set up a meet time in front of the Hotel on Clearwater Beach. At 8:00 am the next morning, Mike Miller, Mark Sillence, Wayne Cree, Jerry Schneider, and Rick Magyar showed up for the recovery. After listening to Mike’s story and getting clear on the area the wedding ring was lost we started the search. In about 15 minutes Rick gave the thumbs up and brought Mike is ring. We got lots of smiles and hugs from him as he celebrated the return of his ring. It was a real pleasure for us to meet Mike and be able to make his day. Thanks to all who participated.

Wedding Ring Lost on Madeira Beach, Florida Found by SRARC

Jon, down from Michigan with his extended family for a warm spring break at Madeira Beach, headed out to the beach for a little game of catch. He was close to the waters edge and lunged to catch a pass and “BOOM” his wedding ring flew off and into the water. The whole family (I think he said there were 8 of them) searched and searched but could not find it. He then got the idea to rent a mental detector. When he told the shop owner about the problem, the owner sent him to Ring Finders. He contacted SRARC and we soon scheduled a hunt for the next morning at 7:00 am. Jim and Gerri Adams, Paul Hill and Mike Miller showed up and Jon was there waiting for them on the dark and foggy beach in front of his condo. He gave us the story and defined the hunt area for us and we went to work. Ten minutes later, Paul Hill got a good hit and in a few digs up came the ring. Jon was overjoyed and we were soon introduced to a few of his family members. There were plenty of smiles to go around with Jon and family and now their vacation can continue on a good note. The SRARC group wishes them all the best.

Paul Hill, Master Hunter three years in a row did it again. Congratulations Paul and thanks Jim, Gerri and Mike for helping out.

Lost Wedding Ring Found and Returned on Siesta Key Beach, Florida

Bobby and family came down to Florida from Brooklyn, NY for a warm spring break. They were out on the beach in front of their condo taking in the sun when Bobby and his daughter started tossing a ball around  as he was backing into the water. As he tossed the ball one more time, off came his wedding ring. The whole family searched but there was no finding the ring. Bobby searched on the internet and SRARC popped up. He contacted Tom and we scheduled a hunt for the next morning. Paul Hill, Wayne Cree, and Mike Miller showed up to meet Bobby at 9:00 the next morning. Bobby filled them in on where they had been tossing the ball and how deep he thought he was. In about 10 minutes, Paul found the ring. Bobby was very excited to have his ring back and commented that they would now be able to enjoy the rest of their holiday and the trip home. We enjoyed the big smile on his face and couldn’t be happier that we could give him his ring back. Great job guy’s!!!!!!!

Purity Ring lost on Anna Maria Island, Florida Found and Returned

A Leadership conference group from the G5 Church in Davenport, Florida came down to Anna Maria Island for a day of rest and relaxation. Some of the young people were playing soccer in the warm sand when BreAnn fell down. When she got up, her hands were all covered with sand. (You know how it is when you have suntan lotion on and dip your hands into sand) She pulled her Purity ring off so she could get the sand out from under it and immediately dropped it into the sand. It of course disappeared. They all looked and looked with no luck. They started to sift the whole area with play plastic sand strainers and another member of the group went in search of a metal detector. He found a detector but they were not successful in finding the ring. Finally because the day was coming to an end and they needed to return to the Orlando area, Josana started looking on the internet for help. She found SRARC on the Ring Finders and contacted Tom Jones. Tom contacted Mike Miller and Mike headed down to the Island right away. When he arrived they showed him the area they had sifted (only about 6 sq. ft.) and he got ready to hunt. Two swings later he got the gold tone, leaned over and picked up the ring. It was in the pile of sand that they had sifted and one of the sifters was actually sitting on top of it.

BreAnn was overjoyed and the others were in shock that it was found so fast. They were all smiling and excited that BreAnn had her ring back. We had a round of hugs and then they were on their way home. I think they must have had a very happy ride home. It is always a pleasure for us at SRARC to be able to return special items to their owner.

Pendant Lost, Found, and Returned in Oldsmar, Florida

Nancy’s daughter was getting out of a car on a visit to Nancy’s home when her pendant chain broke.  She was able to catch the chain while watching the pendant fall into the thick plush grass and disappear. The family searched the area but could not find it.   Nancy contacted Mike Miller at SRARC and asked if they could help. Mike contacted Howard Metts to conduct a search.  The search area was a very small plot of thick grass between the sidewalk and the curb in front of the house.  After about 15 minutes Howard got a signal with his detector and was able to use his pin pointer to coax the pendant out of the thick grass.  Nancy said her daughter will be very happy to see the pendant again.  This is Howards second return this year and its only January! Nice work Howard and we are all happy to see the smile on Nancy’s face.

Go Pro Camera Lost at Bellaire Beach, Florida…Found and Returned by SRARC

Matt received a brand new Go Pro 3 for Christmas and recorded the celebrations his family enjoyed over the holidays. With lots of space still available for filming he took the camera to his favorite fishing spot and decide to try and get a few underwater shots of his lure as he worked it into shore. He walked out to the edge of an oyster bar he was working and placed the camera right at the edge of the bar and wedged it into place with the shells. He walked away to get a good angle to drag the lure past the lens and when he returned, the water had become very muddy from his foot steps. He looked and looked for hours, He even got some snorkel gear and swam around the area searching but had no luck. He was heartbroken for the loss of the camera, but mostly for the loss of the precious pictures of his family.

He eventually found some of the members of the SRARC ring finders team and we put together a search to recover the camera. Mike Miller scheduled the search for 8:00 am at the lowest tide of the week. The team (Mike, Paul Hill, Ed Osmar, Rick Magyar, Stan Flack, and Mark Sillence) went to work right at 8:00 am and in less than a minute Paul spotted the Go Pro setting in the oyster bed. We didn’t even have a chance to fire up the metal detectors. Nice job Team SRARC!!!!!

Matt had to work so he wasn’t around when we found it but we contacted his wife who told us where to find him. We delivered the camera to him at his workplace, and as you can see in the picture he was very pleased. It was a pleasure to be able to find and return his Christmas gift and great to see the big smile on his face.
