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.

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

Michelle and her husband were enjoying a game of catch at the edge of the water last Sunday.  Michelle went to catch the ball and it knocked both of her rings off her finger.  She had just got the rings 2 months earlier as a gift from her husband for 20 years of marriage.  After a few days of fretting over the lost rings and thinking she could never enjoy her favorite beach again knowing her rings were lost there, Michelle googled lost rings and found SRARC on our Ring Finders page and sent an email.  Stan Flack sent an email and began communication, passing off the gathering of detailed information to Mike Miller as Stan was out of town at the time.  A hunt date was set for that evening.  Stan Flack, Chris Duerden, and Jim Adams all joined in the hunt.  The team began to cover the areas Michelle indicated and after a short while Michelle directed the team slightly more south.  After about 45 minutes of Hunting, Stan Flack scooped up the wedding band.  A very excited Michelle came out to get the band while Stan swept near and scooped up the other ring.  Smiles and squeals of delight ensued.  The return of peoples lost rings never gets old. Nice job team SRARC you just keep the smiles coming.

Clearwater Beach Lost Wedding Ring Set Found and Returned

Javan and his wife were spending some time at Clearwater Beach after their wedding that day. They had played in the hotel pool for a while then got out and walked to the sandy beach and sat down on the lounge chairs to warm up. Javan’s new wife had her wedding ring set in her hand and when they decided to get up and go into the gulf she slide them back onto her finger.

They walked a few steps into the water and it felt so good they sat down, leaned back and let the water wash over them. Later they went deeper into the gulf and just enjoyed each other and the warm water. Later as they emerged from the water they noticed the wedding set was missing. They looked everywhere but it was not to be found.

The next day Javan found SRARC through The Ring Finders site and we organized a hunt for that evening. Stan Flack, Bill Gallant, Ed Osmar, Celeste Roles, and Mike Miller showed up and met Javan at 6:30 pm. Javan explained what had happened and where they had been and we went to work searching the water and the sand. After a couple hours we all were losing hope when Bill Gallant walks over to Javan and asks Javan to look into his scoop and there it was. Javan jumped for joy and we all joined in. We didn’t get to see the look on Javan’s wife’s face when he put the ring on her finger for the second time in two days but I bet she was all smiles.

We wish these two the best for their future and are happy we could help them. Bill you did a great service for this couple and we congratulate you on your success in finding the ring.

Wedding Ring Set Lost, Found, and Returned in Saint Petersburg, Florida

Anna Maria and her husband got into a small argument one evening about a month ago. Her husband decided to leave the apartment for a while to let things cool down. He made a last comment as he was walking away and it turned out to be the last straw for Anna Maria. She took off her three rings and threw them in his direction. It was dark so she waited until the next morning to look for them but had no luck. Over the next month she kept looking but never could find them. On the day of their 4 year anniversary she was feeling really sad about her lost rings and she decided to see if she could get some help. She googled lost rings and up popped SRARC. She called Mike and he tried to see if he could schedule a hunt for later in the week as it was raining cats and dogs. She really wanted to see if they could be found on her anniversary day and really wanted someone to come right away.

Mike headed out thinking he was going to get soaked but couldn’t turn her down. When he arrived the rain had stopped but Anna Maria was gone so he called her and got the location where she thought the rings (3) would be. It was in an area that was almost all hedge. He worked over the tops and underneath after shaking each bush. He moved away from the initial area and instantly eyeballed the engagement ring setting in the dirt in plain sight, probably uncovered by the rain. Along side the dirt area were more hedges and also a short strip of grass. After working over the hedges, he started on the grass. In a few moments the promise claddagh ring showed up hidden under the grass. Further searching sadly did not uncover the lost wedding ring. What fun it was to return two of her rings and see the smiles on Anna Maria, her husband, and her mothers faces. Mike will be returning tomorrow to spend a little more time to see if he can find the remaining missing ring. SRARC would like to wish Anna Maria and her husband a very happy anniversary. Two out of Three is not bad!!!!!!!!
