Ring Lost On Anna Maria Island, Recovered By SRARC

Sarah and Tyler headed over to Anna Maria Island from Boca Raton to meet two of their College friends, Brenna and Erin, who had traveled from Pennsylvania for a small reunion. They all meet at a local B & B on Holmes Beach and on their first evening together headed out to the beach to watch the sunset. They had set up their chairs and got some drinks out of the cooler when Sarah remembered that she had not removed her engagement ring. She quickly took it off and handed it to her fiancé, Tyler, who put it into his wallet and zipped it closed. They enjoyed the warm evening watching the sunset and reminiscing about their college days. When it came time to go Sarah asked for her ring and Tyler unzipped his wallet and to their surprise it was not in the wallet. They all searched and searched but could not find it in the dry sand. As it began to get dark. Brenna googled “lost ring Anna Maria Island” and up popped SRARC ring finders. She called Joe Szemer who contacted Mike Miller. Mike left immediately for the beach and was soon greeted by the gang. He quickly went to work and within a few minutes had the ring back on Sarah’s finger. When the ring came out of the sand, there was much laughter and many smiles. SRARC is so glad we were able to turn this disaster into a happy memory.

Ring Lost At Anna Maria Island, Recovered By SRARC

Scott and his Laurie came to their favorite spot on Anna Maria Island from Brandon to enjoy their 39th wedding anniversary at the beach. They set up their chairs at the edge of the tide line and just relaxed for a couple hours and then decided to take a walk down the beach.. After returning, Scott noticed his ring finger was swollen so he decided to remove his wedding ring and put on his little finger. They stayed a few more hours and then headed home. After arriving home, Scott noticed his ring was gone. Thinking back he remembered hearing a tink sound while setting in the chair and came to the conclusion that it must have been his ring hitting the chair. They headed back to the spot the next morning with rakes and shovels to try and find the ring. They had no luck but as they worked a local beach gower asked what they were doing. When she discovered it was a lost ring she directed them to the SRARC Ring Finders. They called Joe Szemer and Joe called Mike Miller to meet them right away while they were still at the beach. It took just a minute for Mike to find the ring and return it to a very happy couple.

Gold Cross Lost On Holmes Beach, Recovered By SRARC

Rachel was spending the afternoon with her family at Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island. She had set her chair right at the edge of the water and was just enjoying the water lapping at her feet. When it came time to head home she stood up and walked a few feet towards the parking lot, then noticed the chain that held her gold cross was broken. She told me, “my beloved cross I’ve had since I was 16, came off my chain. I bought it with my own money after I started working at the movies” and now it is gone. They all searched the area for an hour and a half but could not find it. They finally left the beach with heavy hearts as it became dark and returned home to Brandon. The next day she asked for help in several metal detecting groups on Facebook. SRARC ring finders contacted her and soon we had Dane Trask headed to the beach for a recovery. Dane called Rachel from the beach and got detailed instructions and the hunt was on. After a quick hunt Dane pulled the cross from the sand. A short time later Dane met Rachel and family to return the cross. As you can see, Rachel was overjoyed to have her beloved cross back on her neck and Dane looks pretty pleased as well.

Ring Lost In Anna Maria Island, Recovered By SRARC

Georgia and Scott were visiting from Orlando. They came to see his parents for Memorial Day Weekend. They were all out at Anna Maria island for the day on Sunday and his dad and Scott were tossing the football around in the water. Scott felt the ring come off when he dove to catch the ball. They immediately started looking for it and grabbed some goggles from people nearby but had no luck. They found out about SRARC Ring Finders from a nearby camp and called and emailed in to Howard. They have been married for 1 year as of March 1st so the ring is very special to them and Georgia was very upset Scott had lost it. The next day Mike Schuler, Bill Gallant, Dane Trask, and Mike Miller met them at the beach. After getting instructions the hunters took to the water. In about 30 minutes Dane (on his first hunt with the Ring Finders) found the ring, Scott and Georgia couldn’t believe that we were actually going to find it. They said “They were so nice and helpful. THEY ARE THE BEST!!! Thank you again so much for helping us find it!!!” Congratulations to Dane on his first recovery and welcome the SRARC. We are very happy to have been able to return the ring to Scott and enjoyed both his and Georgia’s big smiles.

Ring Lost On Anna Maria Island, Recovered By SRARC

Matt was down with his wife and baby for a first time visit to Anna Maria Island from Orlando. It was the first day of open beach on the Island as the Covid 19 restrictions were loosened. They were enjoying sitting in the sun and feeling the cool breeze coming off the Gulf of Mexico. Suddenly Matt noticed his wedding ring was missing and they began to search through the sand for it. Time was getting short since they needed to leave soon to return to Orlando when Matt found SRARC on the internet and contacted Howard Metts. Howard contacted Mike Miller and Mike headed for the beach right away. After meeting at the beach and walking to the location Mike took about 6 or 8 swings and found the ring. SRARC is happy that the ring was found so quickly and the family was able to keep on schedule to return home with smiles on their faces.

Ring Lost On Anna Maria Island, Recovered By SRARC

Jeff from the Miami area joined his friend John and other family members on Anna Maria Island to relax during the current voluntary isolation recommendations. Jeff and John were out in about waist deep water rough housing and as they made some fast movements Jeff saw his ring come off and disappear into the gulf waters. He and John got some digging sieves and tried to find it, but they had no luck. After returning to their house Jeff posted what had happened on Facebook and soon after a friend recommended, he should contact SRARC. He called Joe Szemer and Joe put a callout request to the members. Mike Miller responded and made arrangements to meet Jeff on next morning. They meet at 8:00 am and by 8:15 am Jeff was wearing his ring again. It was a great pleasure to see the astonishment and joy on Jeff’s face when Mike handed him the ring. It was a very special ring to Jeff which had been acquired while visiting Dubai, UAE.

Ring Lost On Anna Maria Island Recovered By SRARC

Kathy and Steve were staying on Anna Maria Island for a week with their Daughter Katelyn and Son-in-law Jesse. On Wednesday afternoon they were all out at the beach enjoying the water and sun. As they tossed a football around while standing in waist deep water, Jesse felt his wedding ring slip off and watched it fall into the water. They all kept their wits about them. Katelyn was standing right next to Jesse when the ring came off, so she stayed right there, and the others searched all around her. They soon realized that they would most likely not find it. Kathy googled for help finding a lost ring and up popped the SARAC ring finders’ group. While Katelyn stood right where the ring had dropped, Steve went back to shore and retrieved a fishing pole holder. He returned to where Katelyn was standing and planted it into the sand so the location would not be lost. Mike responded to the callout and was soon on site. He hunted around the marker and kept expanding the search area. Finally, he decided to do a grid search covering about 40 ft each side of the marker. Starting in the deeper water and working in toward the shore. After about 45 minutes he was back to the area just shore side of the marker. As he approached the marker again, he stopped and asked Jesse why he felt that the marker was where he had been when the ring was lost. He said because his wife was standing where they had been, and she never moved until the marker was in place. Mike took one step after that and there it was about 3 feet from the marker. He couldn’t believe he had been over that area at least twice before and missed it. Jesse was very happy to see the ring come up and broke out into a great big smile. He said, “I think my wife will start talking to me again”, and when you look at the picture of her when she found out it was back on his finger, I think he is right. Now they have a great story and can enjoy the rest of their vacation.

Forrest, Alicia, and daughter Eliana along with Brother-in-law Derek and Annemarie were vacationing from Indiana and Chicago on Anna Maria Island. They spent the whole afternoon on the beach and playing in the gulf. Around 4:00 pm they packed up and headed to their rental unit. Shortly after arriving Forrest noticed his wedding ring was missing. They retraced their steps and search on the sand but did not find it. That evening Derek found the SRARC ring finders and made arrangements for a group to come out and search for the ring. Mike Shuler, Ed Osmar, Carl Boekemier, and Mike Miller met them a the beach. Since Forrest had know idea when or where the ring had come off a very large area of dry sand and water needed to be searched. They focused on the sand first and then moved into the water. After hunting for about 2 hours Mike Miller got the hit and up came the missing ring. Forrest was back at the rental so Derek gave him a call and he raced out to the beach. As we returned his ring he chocked up with joy and the whole group was nothing but big smiles. SRARC is happy to have made another vacation end as a happy one.

Ring Lost On Passage Key, Recovered By SRARC

Rachel and John were down from Ocala for a short weekend break on Anna Maria Island. They had their boat with them and headed out to Passage Key to catch some sun and water time. They pulled up on the North end of the key, anchored, and jumped out of the boat to hit the beach. Then they saw the sign that designated the whole island a preserve where you are not allowed onto the beach. They backed into the water and began tossing a football back and forth. They had become engaged just one year earlier and the ring had still not been sized correctly. Well just as you may have guessed, the ring flew off Rachel’s hand as the ball hit it. They frantically searched for several hours but to no avail. Their heads hung down they returned to their rental unit and spent a sad evening and restless night worrying about the loss. The next morning Rachel found SRARC on Google and contacted them. Mike Miller responded and set up a hunt for later that day. Mike met them and Rachel’s brother Kyle at their rental and they all headed out in the boat for the recovery mission. As they anchored the boat, Mike was looking around and much to his surprise discovered all the people around them were naked!!!!!!! He quickly jumped out of the boat thinking “I wonder what it is like to metal detect naked”, but quickly put his head down and went to work. As he worked Mike was thinking “Wow I wonder if they were throwing the football naked”. After a short time they made it clear that they were just as surprised the day before and had anchored as far away from the nudies as possible. Mike searched for about three hours and was getting close to calling it a day when he heard the sweet sound of platinum. When he dug the target, up came a beautiful 2 caret diamond ring. He turned to look at the boat where the others were listening to the Buck’s game and saw that Rachel was watching him. As Mike started walking toward the boat Rachel’s heart sunk for a moment thinking that he was done hunting, but then she yelled “did you find it” and Mike nodded his head yes. Mike has never seen two people get off a boat and into the water so fast. John and Rachel both raced toward him and he could see nothing but great big smiles on their faces. Mike got lots of hugs and smiles which is why we do this small service. SRARC wants to wish John and Rachel nothing but the best for their future life together. It was our pleasure to make their last night on their short break a happy one.

Bean Point, Anna Maria Island Lost Ring

Jon and family were down from Ohio for another vacation at their favorite spot on Bean Point, Anna Maria Island. Last year in November they were in the same area and Jon lost his wedding ring. This year he was being careful and took his new ring off and put on their blanket. After a few hours enjoying the beach they returned to the blanket, packed up their things and shook the sand out of the blanket. Oh no they forgot about his ring and now he had lost another wedding ring to the sands of Anna Maria Island. On returning home to Ohio, Jon found SRARC on the web and contacted us on the outside chance someone had found his ring. He provided a Google Earth map with approximate locations for both rings. Mike got the call and thought it was a long shot but decided to try for the recently lost ring anyway. Apparently Jon is a darn good guesser because after getting a few more details Mike was able to recover his ring in about 5 minutes. Mike is wondering if the second ring will be so easy. All our best to Jon for the return of his ring.
