Lido Key: Lost Ring Is Recovered

McKenzie was down on Lido Key beach chillin’ out with some friends on Sunday. She had her wedding ring of ten years on when they decided to serve a volleyball back and forth to each other. On one of her serves, McKenzie felt her ring fly off. She didn’t see where it went but everyone stopped what they wee doing and searched for the ring. After having no luck, she went and got a metal detector and searched for a couple more hours with no result. After hearing about the loss that evening one of her friends whispered into her ear that there was a Metal Detecting group that would come and help her search for her lost ring. She contacted SRARC Ring Finders and Mike Miller made arrangements to meet the next morning. She showed up with her husband and metal detector and pointed out the area that the ring might be. After about an hour Mike found and returned her ring. Then the plot thickens. It turns out that she had made arrangements to turn this ring in along with some additional cash for an upgraded Diamond ring to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary. She didn’t know what they were going to do if the ring had not been found. Disaster averted!!!!! With SRARC to the rescue. It’s great to see McKenzie smiling again.

Ring Lost And Recovered At Jewfish Key

Rick and his wife Dale had pulled their boat up to a sand bar near Jewfish Island and were enjoying the ankle-deep water and tossing a football. Suddenly Dale realized that her diamond wedding ring that Rick have placed on her finger 17 years ago was missing. They immediately started feeling through the sand and got everyone nearby to help but to no avail the ring was not found.
Later that evening Rick found The Ringfinder website and contacted Tom Jones. Tom sent out a request for hunters to meet Rick at the nearby boat ramp. Tom Jones and Mike Miller met Rick and went out to the sandbar. Once anchored up Rick walked over to a navigational sign and started counting his steps back toward the boat. After 25 steps or so he stopped and said, “it’s right here in this area” while swinging his arms in a circular motion. Mike started hunting from that spot while Tom was asking Rick the normal questions like which way was she facing, is she right or left handed, did she fall. Mike interrupted with the question. ”What does it look like?” as he pulled the ring out of his scoop.
Rick immediately called Dale to give her the good news that her precious lost ring was found.

Lost Ring Recovered In Bradenton Beach, Florida

Alec was at the beach with family and decided to take a swim and sit down out in the ocean on a shallow area when along came a wave from behind that knocked in to him and pulled his ring off his finger. The entire family came out to help Alec look for his ring. They searched for some time and were amazed how quickly it could disappear and figured it was lost forever. Alec made some mental notes on where he was and googled lost ring and metal detectors on line and came across the SRARC website where he got in contact with Stan Flack. Stan quickly sent out some text to find a team member to try and find Alec’s ring. After some searching, team member Jim Thobe answered the call and agreed to meet Alec at the beach a few days later. Jim searched for a long time and finally was able to scoop and recover the ring from the depths of ocean. An amazed and excited Alec, was all smiles. Great work Jim.

Lost ring Recovered In Venice, Florida

Susana and Kharlo Quinones were in Venice for their usual visit all the way from Orlando to the dog beach in Venice, Florida.

While playing with their dog, Susana felt her ring come off her finger and had a general idea of where it had fallen.

After searching in the sand, they googled lost rings and metal detectors and found SRARC’s email addresses. Member Stan Flack emailed Susana back and arranged for member Joe Borg to contact Susana direct and set up a time to meet as soon as possible.

Susana met Joe early the next morning and downloaded him on the details. Joe went straight to work and within 10 minutes had found Susana’s ring to the delight of a very happy Susana smiles for everyone.

Well done Joe.

Jennifer & Eddie of St. Petersburg, (formerly of New York) were with friends enjoying Coquina Beach when Jennifer lost two rings!  Before going into the water, Jennifer had safely stored the rings in a pouch on their beach umbrella. However, after packing up, she soon realized they were not in the pouch!  The couple contacted SRARC and Ring Finder member Wayne Cree went on the hunt. Jennifer had the spot marked and Wayne thought he was super lucky when he immediately found a dime, then a penny! About five minutes later, Wayne found the first ring and thirty seconds later, the second ring. Needless to say, Jennifer & Eddie were thrilled.  Way to go, Wayne. Keep the change!

Lost Heirloom Ring Recovered Sand Castle Lido Beach, Florida

Grace and her husband were down for a family reunion from Indiana for the week. On Friday afternoon, she decided to swim out to join her Mom and Dad on the sandbar in front of their hotel. Shortly after arriving she felt the ring that her grandmother had given her slip off her finger! The ring was special to Grace because her grandmother had chosen it for her from jewelry that she had had for many years. Since Grace’s grandmother was there with the family it was especially hard to tell her it was lost.

The family searched the sandbar for hours but could not find it. That night Grace did a search on Google “what to do when you lose a ring in the ocean” and up popped SRARC. She emailed the web site and Stan Flack contacted her. Stan called Mike Miller to see if he could meet her before they had to leave at 9:00 a.m. the next morning. Mike met her and got the details for the search. She said it was just up on front part of the first sandbar and off Mike went to the area she pointed to. It didn’t take long for Mike to figure out he could not walk out to the first sandbar. He had never attempted to swim with his detector and scoop but there is always a first time for everything so off he went. With a little effort, he made it and about 10 minutes later the ring came up in his scoop. The return trip was a little more difficult and he was out of breath when he finally touched bottom again. He does not recommend that anyone try that unless they have a float device so they won’t get into trouble. Grace and all her family were all very happy and amazed that the ring was recovered. SRARC is just as happy to have had the opportunity to help put a smile back on their faces! Well done, Mike! We are all glad you’re an excellent swimmer!

Wedding Ring Lost, Found and Returned at Siesta Key Beach, Florida

Kyla and Kyle were on a family vacation at Siesta Key from North Carolina. Kyla shared with Mike and I the family members on their trip were having a streak of bad luck. Their turn came at 3 PM on Saturday when Kyle was swimming in the gulf. Kyle was out in the gulf throwing a ball around and at one point digging for shells. Kyle had the location we should search locked down in his mind and came out into the gulf to show Mike and I the areas to hunt. Mike and I searched the chest to waist deep water first as that is where Kyle felt he lost the ring.

After searching the depths for a good while in the rough surf we decided to make our way closer to the beach as Kyle felt there was a possibility he lost it there.  As Mike and I were making our way over a sand bar I got a strong hit. Two scoops later up came Kyle’s ring. Kyle’s ring was unique; it has a sapphire on the inside of the band. Kayla explained it is there for good luck

Wedding Ring Lost Found and Returned at Holmes Beach, Anna Maria Island, Florida

Steve and Emily were visiting Anna Maria Isand from Chicago for a little R & R from the winter weather. They set a couple of lounge chairs up on the beach and sat down to put on their sun protection. Steve pulled his weeding ring of and set it on his lap, then proceeded to apply the lotion. A few minutes later he felt the urge and got up to go the the restroom. About 20 steps later he remembered he had not returned his ring to his finger. He quickly returned to his chair and began searching the sand for his wedding ring. His wife, Emily, soon joined the search sifting through the sand with her fingers. They had no luck so Steve googled “metal detector rental” and up popped SRARC. He called Mike who was in downtown Bradenton at the time and they agreed to meet as soon as Mike could get down to the beach. Thirty minutes later Mike arrived and Steve lead him to the spot where they had been sitting. In a few swings, bada bing, and the ring was returned to Steve. We had lots of smiles and some cheering from the beach crowd as he returned it to his finger.
