He and his family searched for several hours and had finally gave up figuring it was lost for good when a passing metal detectorist on shore had told them to search the internet for water detecting services that may be able to help. That in turn got Melissa find Ring Finders and in touch with SRARC and team member Stan Flack. A hunt was quickly organized for later that day and Stan along with Ed Osmar and Mike Shuler gave it a go in very rough waters. After about 45 minutes and a few dousing, Stan was able to walk over the ring and scoop it up from the ocean. A shocked and elated David and Melissa couldn’t believe it was found and vowed to never wear the ring in the ocean again. Great job to the Ringer finders group for sticking that one out. It was really rough out there.

After a search for lost rings on the beach she found SRARC and called Tom Jones who in turn passed the message on to team member Stan Flack.

Ring Recovery on Gulf Of Mexico Beach

Colin and Christina were down from Toronto with their 2 children finally getting to enjoying a nice sunny beach day after the recent cold snap.

Christina took off her rings to apply sun lotion to her kids and set them next to her on the beach towel. As some time passed she took the towel and shook off the sand and forgot she had left the rings on the towel. Panic ensued and after a frantic 30 minutes of looking, Colin googled metal detectors thinking he could rent one to look when SRARC’s web page came up. Colin called member Stan Flack who lives only minutes from where they were and Stan headed out as soon as possible.

Upon arrival, Stan found a teared eyed and distraught Christina. After a few details on what had happened, Stan started to work and within just a few minutes, both rings were recovered.

More water works from Christina a high five from Colin and hugs from the kids and all was right with Christina’s world again.

As always, it was our pleasure.

NOT …. HOPELESS IN CLEARWATER BEACH WITH RECOVERED RING!

Having unsuccessfully hunted for Sarah’s ring several weeks previously, SRARC Ring Finder member, Stan Flack, had recommended that Sarah put an ad on Craigslist with just enough detail to describe her ring, a general location in hope that another detectorist might have already found it and would see it on Craigslist.

Fast forward two weeks later, SRARC Ring Finder member, Mike Shuler, was out for a fun hunt, unaware of the existence of this ring or that anyone was looking for it. Mike hit a loud unfamiliar tone, and two scoops later he was holding the nicest ring he had ever found! When Mike got home, he went straight to Craigslist’s Lost & Found section and typed in “platinum” and was instantly looking at a photo of the ring in his hand!

In the ad, the owner said she had lost the ring exactly three weeks earlier, while playing catch with her kids in the water. Sarah had received a number of disappointing responses, so she didn’t reply the first time Mike tried to contact her. Once Mike said he was affiliated with SRARC, Sarah contacted Mike. Even then, Sarah wanted to see a picture of the ring. Mike sent her a couple of photos, to which Sarah responded with this message:

“I cannot believe you have found my ring! I am overcome with emotion. I thought I would never see it again. Let me gather myself together and I will call you to discuss how we can get it back to me. I truly can’t thank you enough. You are testament that there are still good people in the world. You are truly a blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Just goes to show you to never give up on those lost rings because you just never know. Very proud to have you on the team, Mike!
