Wedding Ring Lost, Found and Returned at Clearwater Beach, Florida

Marco and his wife were in town from Miami vacationing in St. Petersburg when they decided to spend the day at Clearwater Beach.  Marco was doing some digging in the sand and decided that it would be best to give his wife his wedding ring for safe keeping.  She put the ring in their beach bag and they went about enjoying the beach until a storm swept in rapidly and they were forced to leave the beach in a hurry.  When they got to the car, they discovered Marco’s ring was missing.  Fortunately for Marco, the valet at the Hyatt is very aware of the SRARC’s ring finder team and told Marco’s to call on them.  Marco called Tom jones who passed on to team member Stan Flack to see if we could locate the ring.  By now it was dark so with Marco and his wife leaving the next day, Stan suggested a very early morning hunt and the two met on Clearwater beach at 6 a.m.  Unfortunately the place marker Marco had left of where they had been was now gone, but a few clues were still there including Marco’s eye for detail on a few beach trash items he remembered seeing.  A little daylight, a little deducing on a path of travel, and a dash of luck and Stan had the ring in his scoop in about 20 minutes.  A stunned Marco was very happy to have his ring back with smiles and high fives all the way around.

Special Ring Lost at Clearwater Beach then Found and Returned

Elizabeth, her husband Jonas and son Elias are on holiday from Helsingborg Sweden and ready to enjoy all that Florida has to offer.  The water was warm and welcoming as Elizabeth swished her hands in the clear blue Gulf of Mexico.  As she lifted her hands up she realized that the ring her husband had gotten in Thailand and given to her 16 years ago was gone.  Heartbroken, they searched for hours with no luck.  That is when they went online and contacted Mike Miller.  Mike contacted Paul Hill who he knew was off today and available for a rapid response.  He made his way to Clearwater Beach and met up with Elizabeth.  Paul looked at his watch, 3:29, picked his north to south line based on some questions he asked and on tide information that he had be given by Mike on the drive over.  Thirty or so feet later he got a solid 12-27 signal, presenting his scoop to Elizabeth she reached in and retrieved her white gold and ruby ring then almost knocked Paul over with big hug.  Quick look at his watch…3:34.  The happy family headed back up to the beach ready to enjoy the rest of their 3 week vacation!
SRARC is very happy that we were able to help and wish them safe travels back home.

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

Dan was at the beach on Madeira Beach with his family enjoying the water when he realized that his ring was lose and decided to take it off and put it on a larger finger. When he took it off he fumbled it and it fell into the water and it disappeared in the sand. At this time Dan used good logic and had his father in law stand in the spot so Dan could triangulate some land marks to make it easier to locate the spot.

He Googled metal detector rental and found SRARC. He called Stan Flack who was just finishing a hunt on Sand Key Beech and Stan told him he would be there as soon as possible. Stan was joined by Ed Osmar and the two started hunting. Within 10 minutes Stan found the ring and returned it to a very happy Dan.

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

Jason and his wife were visiting St, Petersburg from Walton, KY. While here they decided to take the family to Clearwater Beach for the day. Upon arriving at the beach they took some pictures then decided to go in the water. Jason walked out into the water about knee deep and at that time his wife asked him if he should take his ring off to make sure he didn’t   loose it. At that time he looked down and it was already gone. They went back to their umbrella and looked at the pictures they had just taken and sure enough it was on his finger right before he went in the water.

After looking for the ring for some time they reluctantly got in the car and headed back to St. Petersburg. Jason was broken hearted because he would never see his wedding band again. That afternoon he decided to search the internet to see if there was someone that could hunt for the ring. He found the ringfinders.com and contacted Tom Jones. Tom told Jason to meet him at Clearwater Beach at 6:30 that same evening.

Tom, Ed Osmar, and Dimitur Alipiev met the couple at the beach and started hunting. As the three were searching the water Ed noticed the couple standing in the water about 20 yards north of the area they had indicated the ring was lost. Ed thought, I bet that is where they really lost it. Moments after he reach the spot Ed called out “is it silver colored?” Jason and his wife ran over and she read the inscription inside the band and yelled out “Oh my God that is it”. After a round of hugs for all, the couple left the beach to enjoy the rest of their vacation that was destined to be a bad memory but now has a “great story” as Jason puts it. The link below is a news clip of the event.

Clearwater Beach Lost Wedding Ring Set Found and Returned

Javan and his wife were spending some time at Clearwater Beach after their wedding that day. They had played in the hotel pool for a while then got out and walked to the sandy beach and sat down on the lounge chairs to warm up. Javan’s new wife had her wedding ring set in her hand and when they decided to get up and go into the gulf she slide them back onto her finger.

They walked a few steps into the water and it felt so good they sat down, leaned back and let the water wash over them. Later they went deeper into the gulf and just enjoyed each other and the warm water. Later as they emerged from the water they noticed the wedding set was missing. They looked everywhere but it was not to be found.

The next day Javan found SRARC through The Ring Finders site and we organized a hunt for that evening. Stan Flack, Bill Gallant, Ed Osmar, Celeste Roles, and Mike Miller showed up and met Javan at 6:30 pm. Javan explained what had happened and where they had been and we went to work searching the water and the sand. After a couple hours we all were losing hope when Bill Gallant walks over to Javan and asks Javan to look into his scoop and there it was. Javan jumped for joy and we all joined in. We didn’t get to see the look on Javan’s wife’s face when he put the ring on her finger for the second time in two days but I bet she was all smiles.

We wish these two the best for their future and are happy we could help them. Bill you did a great service for this couple and we congratulate you on your success in finding the ring.

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.

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.
