Camper Loses Chain And Crucifix On Anclote Island

Andrew was camping on Anclote Island with friends when he discovered his gold chain with crucifix his grandfather had given him was missing.

When he got home he told mom who was able to find the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club Ringfinders blog.  His mother sent an email requesting help from the club and was contacted by Howard Metts.

Howard and Ed Osmar met Andrew, his mother, and friends that supplied a boat to get us out to the island.  About 30 minutes into the hunt Andrew spotted the chain sticking out of the sand, however the crucifix was not with it.  Ten minutes later Howard Metts got a good signal and came up with the crucifix.   Mom and Andrew were very grateful for the recovery.

Cheerleader loses wedding ring set in oldsmar

Christi leads a cheerleading team in Oldsmar, Florida.  On Wednesday night, prior to practice, she had removed her wedding band and engagement ring and set it on top of her bag.  With darkness falling and practice over, the girls grabbed their bags. Christi gets to her car and reality steps in !!!  My rings !!! Racing back to the corner of the field, no rings were found.

On Thursday, Ryan, her husband was able to borrow a metal detector at work.  Four hours of gridding and searching delivered a big, fat goose egg.

Ryan did some internet searching and was lead to the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club and their team of Ring Finders.  Mark Prue got the call from Ryan on Friday and the three agreed to meet in Oldsmar the following morning.

After dodging a disc golf tournament, dog walkers and a cricket match in progress, Mark started searching the area.  The second target Mark came across found his XP Deus screaming GOLD !!  A quick search with the pinpointer confirmed it.  He pulled the grass aside and there it was !!! He called Christi over, told her to look here …..hugs and tears ensued !!! Another return for the Ring Finders !!

Steve & Audrey took their boat to Three Rooker Island to spend a relaxing day. As Audrey was getting out of the boat, her engagement ring fell into the water! Quick thinking Steve hit the “man overboard” button on the boat’s GPS and marked the spot.  Steve found the SRARC website, contacted Tom Jones who passed the information on to Howard Metts.  Two days later, Howard, Jeanine Metts, Ed Osmar and Dimitur Alipiev met with Steve on the boat ramp for a ride to the island.  Using the GPS, Steve was able to position the boat very closely to where Audrey had lost the ring.  After about ten minutes of water hunting, Howard got a good signal and the ring was in his scoop! Steve was ecstatic, and immediately called Audrey who was overjoyed her ring was found! Great teamwork everyone!

Young assistant recovers lost ring in Clearwater Beach.

Arizona couple, Michael and his wife Katlyn, were spending vacation time in Clearwater Beach.  While tossing a ball in the water at the hotel’s private beach, Katlyn dove for the ball and sadly watched her wedding band fall off into the water. Michael found our club online and contacted Tom Jones, who passed on the information to Howard Metts. Howard called Michael and set up a time to meet before they left for the airport.

Howard started hunting in the area he was directed to hunt in (chest to neck deep water) and retrieved three targets, but not the ring.  Connor, who was visiting from Michigan with his family, was swimming in the search area with goggles.  After an hour of hunting and just before Mike and Kat were to leave for home, Connor popped up and said “is this what your looking for”?  In his hand was the ring Howard had been searching for!  Mike and Kat were very grateful for Howard’s efforts and to young Connor for coming up with the ring.  Nice work, Connor! You may have just found yourself a lifetime hobby, too!   Thanks for helping.

Two Rings Found and Returned at Weekii Watchee Springs

Caroline and her sister Katy along with several other cousins all gathered at Katy’s house for the holidays. On Monday January 3rd they decided it would be fun to go up to Weekii Watchee Springs state park and see the mermaids perform. After the show they spent some additional time walking around the park and soon it was getting so warm they decided to go for a swim in the spring. Caroline went into the changing room and changed into her swimming suit. She covered herself with sun screen and in the process removed her rings and put them into her short’s pocket and then put them on over her swim suit. After looking around a little more they headed over to the beach and found a picnic table to store their things on. Caroline removed her shorts and laid them on the table then headed off to the water. After swimming for a while they returned to the table and Caroline found her shorts with the keys fallen out of the pocket but thought nothing of it. They finished their day and headed home. After returning home she discovered both of her rings were missing. She and her sister rushed back to the park and searched in the sand under the table but could not find anything. One of Caroline’s cousins remembered hearing about The Ring Finders and suggested she try finding someone to help. She found the SRARC Ring Finders Service and contacted Mike Miller. Mike put out a request to the team and they all met at the site the next day. As the team entered the park (Paul Hill, Ed Osmar, Rick Magyar, Mike Shuler and Mike), the gate attendant mentioned that they had just found a ring. We waited until Caroline arrived and they had her describe her lost engagement ring and sure enough it was hers. We all congratulated her and began to step away when she mentioned that the engagement ring was the only one that was important so don’t worry about the other ring she had lost. We said “No Way” we came all this way to hunt so let’s go see if we can find it. We discovered that the engagement ring was found nowhere near where she thought she had lost it and there was no sandy area in that location. We decided to split up with Caroline and Paul heading to the location that the engagement ring had been found and the rest of us, with Katy as our guide, headed to the beach area by the picnic table. After searching the sand around the picnic table for a short time Mike got a call from Paul and he informed us that Caroline had found the second ring. The boat Captain who found the engagement ring saw them looking and he showed them exactly where he had found it lodged between two dock planks. Caroline looked off to the side in the dirt and spotted the other ring right away. We think she reached into her pocket for something and the rings popped out as she pulled out maybe her keys. Whatever, we are very happy she has her rings again and that we were able to give her moral support until they were returned to her fingers again.
When we left the park we all had great big smiles on our faces!!!!!!!!!!!

School Ring Lost, Found, and Returned on Clearwater Beach, Florida

During the month of October 2016, SRARC Ring Finders member Mark Sillence was metal detecting at Clearwater Beach, Florida and in one foot of water obtained a strong signal. Up from the scoop, laid a beautiful school ring with a genuine ruby center gemstone. Mark obtained the following information from the ring: Rugby; State Champion; and bearing the name of Dani Dieringer. Browsing the web, Mark obtained Dani’s Facebook page and left her a message. However, it did not appear Dani was on Facebook that often. Mark continued his search and located the web site of the Rugby Team and contacted one of the coaches whom in turn, reached out to Dani. Dani stated that while enjoying the sun at the beach on September 21, 2016, she lost the ring while in the water. The ring was subsequently returned to a very happy Dani, whom thought the ring was forever lost.
