SUCCESSFUL RING RECOVERY ON ST. PETERSBURG BEACH, FLORIDA

Dan & Erin were at St. Pete Beach enjoying a hot August summer day. Erin had decided to take her rings off so as not to lose them in the water.   After leaving the beach, Erin noticed her rings were missing and remembered she had taken them off on the beach and put them on the towel. Dan & Erin went back to look but had no luck. A quick Google search connected them with SRARC team member, Mike Shuler.  Mike made arrangements to meet the couple at the beach at noon that same day.   A few sweeps of the coil and the ring was found within minutes! Erin was ecstatic to have her rings back on her finger. Great work Mike, keep those smiles coming!

GPS HELPS RECOVER LOST ENGAGEMENT RING ON THREE ROOKER ISLAND

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.

Lost Ring Recovered With Help From Google Earth at Ft. Desoto Beach

Charles and his family were over from Tampa enjoying a day at Ft. DeSoto Beach.  Once in the water, Charles decided to put his wedding ring in a zippered pocket for safe keeping. As soon as he got it off his finger, it slipped out from his hands into the waist deep water! Charles’ wife searched the web for a metal detector and soon found and contacted SRARC.  Wayne responded to the call and arranged for some team members to search the next day. Mike Miller & Paul Hill spoke to Charles to get details as to where to begin the search.  Charles asked if a Google Earth photo would help? Absolutely! With this information, Mike & Paul set out to divide and conquer! Each man took an end of the area and worked their way to the other.  Less than two passes later, Paul had the ring in his scoop! A call was made and Charles drove over to pick up his “precious” as he called it.  Charles thanked the team profusely and as he was leaving he claimed “I’ve got my MOJO back!” We are happy for your Charles! Thanks Mike & Paul for being there for him.

Wedding Ring Lost at Ceremony Found and returned at Redington Beach, Florida

April and Tony came to Florida from Michigan to have a Beach Wedding and were joined by their families on Redington Beach just before sundown for the ceremony. As the ring bearer was making his way to the alter one of the rings fell off the pillow that he was carrying. The ceremony continued without the ring and afterwards someone brought a rake and started searching for the ring. Meagan one of the wedding planners, looked up the Ringfinders knowing that they had helped another couple find a lost ring two years ago on Sunset Beach. She called Tom Jones and asked if anyone could get there before dark to search for the ring. Tom and Joe headed out immediately and called Stan Flack to see if he could help with the hunt.
Upon arrival they ask what metal the ring was made of and got several answers from the family. Some said Silver, White gold and the most common answer was platinum. They started hunting the path that the wedding party had walked but did not find the ring. After expanding the search farther back on the path Tom got a good gold signal and up came the “14 K White Gold” ring. The Bride and Groom were busy with the Wedding Photographer getting pictures as the sun was setting but took time out to show how grateful they were that the ring was found.

Heirloom Engagement Ring Lost, Found, and Returned at Pass-A-Grille Beach, Florida

John, Christine and their family were visiting from Stone Mountain, Georgia. Sunday afternoon they were enjoying a day on the beach, Christine was in the water throwing a football when she felt her ring come off. She screamed out that she had lost her ring. Her daughter saw the ring fly through the air and into the water.
The ring she had just lost was a family heirloom that John had given here upon their engagement. The whole family and and friends started searching frantically for the ring but to no avail. John decided to search for professional help and his google search led him to theringfinders.com website and eventually to SRARC. He called Tom Jones and asked for help. Tom called Joe Szemer and immediately headed out to the beach. Upon arrival they met up with John, Tom headed to the beach with a detector and Joe stared the arduous task of finding a parking spot.
Tom went into the water with John and Christine to the location that they felt the ring should be. Tom told Christine to stand in that spot and not move so he could use her as a reference point. He circled around her and John and gridded the area first east and west then north and south. After 30 minutes Joe finally enters the water to start hunting as he is searching his way out toward Christine, Tom noticed Christine heading to the beach with her head down and her face in her hands. As she walked away Joe moved into the spot she was standing and got a target. After a couple of scoops he looked up at John and asked “What does the ring look like?” It was in his scoop. A scream was let out and everyone came running out into the water.

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.
