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!

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!

Wedding Ring Lost Found and Returned at Holmes Beach, Anna Maria Island, Florida

Steve and Emily were visiting Anna Maria Isand from Chicago for a little R & R from the winter weather. They set a couple of lounge chairs up on the beach and sat down to put on their sun protection. Steve pulled his weeding ring of and set it on his lap, then proceeded to apply the lotion. A few minutes later he felt the urge and got up to go the the restroom. About 20 steps later he remembered he had not returned his ring to his finger. He quickly returned to his chair and began searching the sand for his wedding ring. His wife, Emily, soon joined the search sifting through the sand with her fingers. They had no luck so Steve googled “metal detector rental” and up popped SRARC. He called Mike who was in downtown Bradenton at the time and they agreed to meet as soon as Mike could get down to the beach. Thirty minutes later Mike arrived and Steve lead him to the spot where they had been sitting. In a few swings, bada bing, and the ring was returned to Steve. We had lots of smiles and some cheering from the beach crowd as he returned it to his finger.

Wedding Ring Set Lost, Found, and Returned on Anna Maria Island, Florida

Nellie and Her husband Austin were on Anna Maria Island from Battleground, Washington for spring break and a family reunion. The whole family had walked to the beach for a little fun in the sun Florida style. They set up camp on the beach and soon Nellie’s mother walked into the water. Feeling a little frisky Nellie followed her in and knowing the water was a little cool, She started to splash it up on her mother and the reaction was as you would expect.. A short time later, after things calmed down, Nellie sensed her hand felt a little lite. Looking down she saw that her wedding set was missing. The whole family gathered around and searched frantically for the ring. After an hour Nellie’s brother did a search for lost rings on the internet and up popped SRARC. Mike Miller and Paul Hill were available to meet the family right away while they were still at the beach and after receiving instructions they went to work. In just a few minutes Mike was the lucky one to find the ring. He held it up and they couldn’t believe it had been found. Everyone on the beach cheered and clapped and Mike got a big hug from Nellie. Austin got the ring and went down on his knee and proposed to Nellie all over again. We were all smiling about this perfect ending. SRARC is happy to bring a happy ending to the reunion and give them a story to talk about at their next reunion.

Engagement Ring Lost, Found, and Returned on Longboat Key, Florida

Jeoff and Kaylie were visiting his parents on Longboat Key for spring break from Medical school in Illinois where Jeoff is studying to be a heart surgeon. They had recently become engaged and it was a good time to just relax and enjoy each other. They went out onto the sand in front of the condo and put some chairs out, then placed their towels over the chairs. Kaylie took off her engagement ring and set it on her towel to put suntan lotion on and when done forgot all about her ring. After a short time lying in the sun they decided to go for a walk down the beach. When they returned the wind had blown their towels off of the chairs onto the sand. It was then that Kaylie remembered she had left her ring on the towel. They began frantically looking for the ring and soon Jeoff’s parents and several other condo owners joined in sifting through the sand. They also found a metal detector rental place and tried to find it with a detector but the detector seemed to beep all the time and they never found anything so they gave that up. They searched all day and later that evening Jeoff found the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club (SRARC) ring finders page on the internet. He contacted Mike and they set a time to meet the following morning. When Mike arrived Jeoff showed him a nicely marked area where they had been sitting. About 4 steps and 6 swings later Mike found the ring. Jeoff, Kaylie, and his Mom and Dad, were amazed at how easily it was found after they had spent all day trying to find it. There were smiles all around and Mike’s was as big as Kaylie’s and Jeoff’s. All of us at SRARC wish nothing but the best for these two and hope they have many happy years together.

Hope Ring Lost, Found, and Returned on Venice Beach, Florida

The 100th Return for Jay and Karen Ganz

While vacationing with my daughter in FL, I took my ring off to put sunscreen on. I got up to attend to my three year-old and forgot my ring was on my lap. I didn’t realize the ring fell into the sand until an hour later when we were packing the car to leave. My father and I went back and combed the beach with our hands and feet for over an hour with no luck. That night I was sick to my stomach…the ring wasn’t a material possession, it was a ring I made for myself in 2014 when my daughter and I moved back to NJ from WA state, a new 2-person duo. When faced with being a single mom I told myself, “You got this” and I traded in some jewelry I no longer used to have a hope ring made. Two years later the ring was now gone. The next morning, I texted the local Ring Finders chapter and a friendly voice called me back saying her name was Karen and her husband Jay and she would love to help. I asked about the fee and she said there’s no charge but I could donate to their chapter if I wanted. They changed their existing plans and met me at Venice Beach not much later. In less than 5 minutes Karen found my ring. The next day was Thanksgiving and I couldn’t help but be thankful for my path crossing with Karen and Jay…it wasn’t the ring being returned that I was as grateful for, as it was meeting such genuinely giving people and knowing that selfless people still exist in the world. I thank them for finding my ring, but more importantly Karen and Jay showing me true kindness.

Congratulations Jay and Karen on 100 rings returned over your detecting careers. That is an AWESOME accomplishment!!!!!!!!!

Wedding Ring lost, Found, and Returned on Siesta Key, Florida

Jesse and Grisel decided to take a short weekend break on Siesta Key to spend some quality time with just each other. On their first evening at the hotel they decide to walk to the beach and enjoy the beautiful sunset. They found a place where they could sit in the sand close to the water and just enjoy each others presence as the sun dropped into the gulf. When they stood up, Jesse was brushing the sand off of his bottom when he felt his wedding ring slip off of his finger.

They looked every where and sifted through the sand thinking they would find it, but it was not to be. Jesse remembered a guy he once talked to that had recovered rings with a metal detector and decided to see if he could find someone on the internet. He googled find ring with metal detector and up popped The Ring Finders. He found the local SRARC ring finders group and called Stan Flack. Stan Called Mike Miller who then set up a recovery hunt for the next morning. Mike showed up at 7:00 am and met Jesse and his wife Grisel at the beach where they took him to the spot the ring had been lost. In a minute the ring was found and returned.

Both Jesse and Grisel were extremely happy along with Mike. We all left the beach together and walked to a restaurant where we enjoyed getting to know each other over a wonderful breakfast.

SRARC is always very pleased when we can successfully recover a cherished item for someone.

Lost Ring Found and Returned on Siesta Key Beach, It is Number 99 for Jay and Karen Ganz

Ron’s Brother in law was playing football on the beach when his tungsten wedding band flew off in the water.
After franticly searching for the ring with no luck, Ron contacted Tom Jones for help. No club members were available at the time so Tom called another member of theringfinders.com in Manatee County to help. After two days not hearing anything back Tom called Ron to see if the ring was found and learned that it was not. Tom called Karen Ganz and asked her if she could possibly help. Karen gladly contacted Ron and met up with them the next morning. After hunting the area that the ring was thought to be in for over an hour, Karen moved into ankle deep water and located the ring.

Congratulations Karen & Jay. Only one more to your goal of 100 returned rings in you detecting career. It looks like you will exceed that long ago set goal. You two are a great example of all the good people we have participating in our hobby.

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

Ron and Mercy Manning were spending the week of July 4th with her family on Siesta Key. Ron was out in the water throwing a ball when his white gold wedding ring came off and went into the water. The whole family went in the water looking for the ring. Ron and Mercy had planned to stay at Siesta for the whole week until Mercy’s sister injured herself and had to be taken back to Miami. Losing the ring and having to leave it behind broke Ron’s heart and also their daughter who was afraid that the ring was gone and her parents would no longer be married. Mercy reassured her that they were still married.

Upon returning to Miami Mercy found theringfinders.com on the internet and contacted Tom Jones on July 7th and scheduled a hunt for July 8. Tom, Mike Miller, Mike Shuler, Ed Osmar and Mark Sillence arrived at the beach and started hunting for the ring. After searching the area where the ring was lost with no results, Ed and Mark moved to the gulf side of the sand bar. Not long after Ed yells out, “is this it?” Tom took the ring and read the date 02/14/97 which was Ron and Mercy’s wedding date. Tom called her on facetime to give the good news and be able to see her face when she saw the ring. She was over joyed when she heard that the ring had actually been found. Mercy called her aunt who was still on Siesta and the ring was given to her to take home to Ron.

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.
