Ring Lost At Fort Desoto, Recovered By SRARC

Ana and Paul came to Ft Desoto to spend some quite time at the beach. They set up at the Bay pier and relaxed in the sun. After a while they went into the water and started to toss a small ball back and forth. As we have often seen, Ana was catching the ball when her engagement ring flew off into the water. They looked for hours and even purchased a small metal detector to try and find the ring. What a devastating loss while trying to save for the wedding this coming January. The next day they found the SRARC ring finders online and contacted Joe Szemer. Joe put a callout to the volunteers and Mike Miller answered the call. The time was set for 10:00 am and Mike arrived early. Using a location provided by Paul from Google Earth he went to work early and found the ring before Paul arrived to narrow the search. As Paul was showing Mike where to focus the hunt, Mike pulled the ring from his pouch and asked Paul if it looked like the right ring. He was overwhelmed and could not believe it was found. Because they were both wearing masks you couldn’t see the smiles but we know they were there. Best wishes for your future together Ana and Paul from the SRARC Ring Finders.

Ring Lost On Shell Key, Recovered By SRARC

Marisol & Abdiel came from Kissimmee to enjoy the Gulf Coast for a few days. They joined a few friends on Shell Key to celebrate a birthday and while getting ready to swim Marisol was pulling her shirt off over her head when her new wedding ring flew off and disappeared in the sand. She had received the ring just 27 days earlier in celebration of her Three year anniversary. Luckily, Abdiel saw where the ring flew so they searched in the sand until they had to leave but had no luck. Thinking ahead, Abdiel marked the spot before they left with a stick. Later that evening He googled for lost rings and found SRARC. Joe Szemer made arrangements for Mike Miller to meet them the next morning. Due to the good planning by Abdiel, It took only a couple of minutes for Mike to find and return the ring. The smiles on their faces show the joy they felt to have their precious ring returned. It was SRARC’s pleasure to have been able to help them recover this special ring.

Jeff is a professor of accounting at College of Central Florida and wanted to start the new year rested and ready to hit it hard. One afternoon they decided to go out to Bean Point to enjoy the sun and gulf. They set up their chairs and prepared for the intense sun buy applying suntan lotion.

Lost Ring Recovered In Shell Key

Some friends and I were enjoying a Saturday boat outing on Shell Key. Everything was going well… until that “moment.” We were getting ready to head back and the boat driver asked “Hey Matt, can you hop out and grab that anchor?” I immediately jumped off the boat, grabbed the anchor and swam to the back of the boat to get back on board. I was standing on the swim platform and spun to the left to grab the other anchor. That’s when the “moment,” happened. I saw my wedding band slide off my finger and into the ocean below. I immediately yelled “Shut off the engine,” and jumped into the water frantically diving below to search for my ring. After about an hour of searching, I returned to the boat and called 5 local dive shops to see if they could send out a diver to search for the ring. They were all skeptical with the typical response being “There’s no way we’re going to find it, I’m sure the currents would have taken the ring, it could be hundreds of feet from where you originally dropped it.” I started to lose hope and could not stop dwelling on the thought that one of the most meaningful items I would ever own would be lost forever.
I didn’t give up and continued to call local dive shops. After a few more calls and no luck I started googling looking for help. That’s when I stumbled across The Ring Finders website which led me to reach out to the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club. I initially reached out to Howard who took my call while he was meeting with a client. I explained the situation to him and he reached out to the club to find some volunteers to help recover the ring. Later in the evening I received a call from Joe, who helped plan the hunt. We decided to meet at Tierra Verde marina on Sunday at 3PM so that they could search during low tide. Sunday came around and 3 hunters showed up, Joe, Tom and Ed. Slowly, the remorse and feelings of despair turned to hope as there were 3 hunters with over 40 years of collective experience helping to find my ring.
They searched for about an hour and a half with no luck. Ed started following me as I was in the water searching with my feet. After about another half hour, Ed looked up and said “I’m not sure if this yours, but I found one.” I raced over to him and looked at the ring. To my amazement he had found it. The feeling in that moment is hard to describe, but I can tell you it was one of the best moments of my life. I will forever be thankful to the SRARC, Ed, Tom, Joe and Howard. The entire experience of dealing with them was amazing and these guys are some of the most altruistic people I have ever met.
