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.

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.

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.

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

Ryan and his wife Ashley were enjoying at sunny afternoon at the beach tossing around a Nerf Football when Ryan felt his ring fly off his finger.  They immediately went to try and rent a metal detector at a rent all type place, but were disappointed to find that all the rental places detectors were broken.  So they posted an add on Craigslist in hopes someone may spot the ring.  Howard Metts saw the post and gave Stan Flack a heads up to the post since it was near his home.  After a few text’s and emails, Stan decided he had enough information and gave a hunt for the ring on his way to work.  After about 10 minutes of hunting, bingo, ring found.  Ryan and Ashley ecstatic about the find, met Stan at his work and the ring was returned.  Smile’s all the way around.

Lost Wedding Ring Found and Returned in Dunedin, Florida

Jill Cicero was having a new fence installed in the backyard of her new Dunedin home with her father supervising the installation of the posts.  Her father noticed his gold ring was missing halfway through the job and stopped all work asking his daughter to find someone to help find the ring.  Jill found our club SRARC on The Ring Finders and contacted Tom Jones who called Howard Metts, a member that lives in Dunedin.  Howard went out late that afternoon and after 45 minutes of searching with his detector had no luck.  Switching to a pin pointer Howard searched the dug post holes  and at the second post hole found the ring in a pile of soil between the post and fence.  Howard contacted Jill who was coming home from work and informed her of the find.  Jill and her father were very happy to see the ring again.  What a way to start the new year.

Nice recovery Howard, nice to se the smile in Jill’s face.
