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.

Heirloom Pendant Lost, Found and Returned in Tampa, Florida

Chelsea spent the day in her backyard, first creating a small garden and then preparing the rest of the area for grass. She finally finished the prep work and seeded the area. She got out the hose and hand water everything and then as she was putting away the hose she noticed her necklace was broken. When she checked she found that the gold pendant with an image of Jesus on it that her grandfather had given to her for safe keeping was gone. Her grandfather had worn the pendant his whole life and when he recently was confined to the hospital he wanted her to keep it safe for him. When she discovered it was lost she was devastated. She got down on her hands and knee’s and cried as she searched for hours. When she did not find it, she decided she needed to rent a metal detector. When she googled “metal detector rental” SRARC came up and she called Mike Miller. Mike explained that we do not rent metal detectors but we would be happy to come out and search for the pendant. Mike call for a hunt the next day and Wayne Cree agreed to meet him at the site. Wayne and Mike searched for about 5 minutes and then Mike got a good hit close to where the new garden was. Sure enough it was the pendant. Chelsea was so relieved and happy she gave us a big hug and a giant smile. SRARC is so happy to have returned this special keepsake to Chelsea and we wish her grandfather a quick and complete recovery.

Wedding Ring Lost at Beach Ceremony, Found and Returned Just in Time on Pass A Grille Beach

Scott and Tracy planned a beautiful wedding at sunset on Pass A Grille beach. Everything was setup and almost ready to go when Scott was walking across the boardwalk to the beach. As he was walking across the sand he felt strange and thought he heard something hit the sand. He stopped and checked everything he had been carrying and discovered he no longer had the wedding ring. Everyone rushed over to look but had no luck finding the ring. The wedding planner quickly informed them he knew of a group that could help. He contacted Stan Flack of SRARC Ring Finders who passed him on to Mike Miller. Mike said he could come right over but it was getting late and the sun would soon be down so they decided to go on with the ceremony without the ring.

By the time Mike got there the ceremony was over but the bride and groom were still at the alter. Mike went right to work and within 5 minutes he found the ring. Everyone was relieved and the ring was rushed over to the couple and it was just in time for Tracy to slip the wedding ring onto Scotts finger.

SRARC is so happy to have been able to recover and return this ring. We wish the happy couple all the best in their future.

Wedding Ring Lost then Found and Returned at Tierra Verde Fishing Spot

Nick came down from Ocala with his Dad, Brother, and Father-in-law to fish in honor of his recently lost Aunt whom had fished many times with his father in this very spot over the last thirty years. After fishing for a short time, Nick hooked a nice Red fish and while unhooking it got stabbed with a fin. As he jerked his hand away, off flew his wedding ring. He has only been married for 5 months and he could not imagine how he was going to explain not having a wedding ring to his new wife. They had been fishing in about waist deep water and had the foresight to mark the spot where the ring came off with a stick stuck into the grassy bottom. They all searched for about an hour before realizing that they were not going to find it.

Nick got out of the water and did a search on his smart phone for lost wedding rings in St Petersburg. SRARC Ring Finders Recovery Service popped up right away and he called the numbers listed and Mike Miller soon responded. Mike put out a quick request to the team members and headed for Nick’s location. Mike and Jeffery Miller both arrived about the same time and began the search. It only took a few minutes for Mike to locate and recover the ring. It was within three feet of where the stick had been pushed into the bottom.

Nick was extremely happy to get his ring back and relieved that he was not going to have to explain a lost wedding ring to his wife. SRARC wishes them both many happy years together.

Family Heirloom Ruby Ring Lost, Found, and Returned on Pass A Grille Beach, Florida

Austin and his mother were visiting his brother in Florida from Flint, Michigan. They all went to Pass A Grille and set up a canopy near the water for a fun day at the beach. Shortly after arriving they went into the water and as they enjoyed the warm gulf water temperature, Austin sat down in about neck deep water. As he was sitting he felt a shell in the sand, picked it up and threw it toward the shore. As the shell headed to shore so did Austin’s precious ruby ring. They all searched for hours but with no luck.

The ring was his grandfathers which was given to his grandfather by his grandfathers mother when he had turned 18. His grandfather wore the ring everyday of his life until he chipped the original ruby. At that time, one of his daughters (Austin’s Aunt) had the ruby replaced for him and he put the ring back on and wore it for the rest of his life. The Family is not sure what the significance of the ring was but they do know that both of his parents had worn ruby rings.

For Austin’s 18th birthday just last July his grandmother gave him the ring as a birthday present. Not only is the ring significant in his families history it is also Austin’s birthstone. The ring is approximately 61 years old.

About 8 days after he lost it, Austin found SRARC Ring Finders and contacted Tom Jones. A hunt date was established and Paul Hill, Ed Osmar, Dimitur Alipiev, Mark Sillence, Howard Metts, Jeffery Miller, Mike Miller, and Bill Gallant showed up for the hunt. 13 minutes later Bill held up the ring and said “I think I found it”. Awesome job Bill and a big “Thank You” to all who helped on this recovery. SRARC is very happy to have been a part in returning this important piece of history to Austin’s family.

Ring Lost at Pass A Grille Beach Found and Returned

Tony and Tammy were visiting from Michigan and staying at the Don Cesar Resort in St Pete Beach. While out playing in the water, Tammy lost her ring. After looking as long as they could they retired to their room where she spent a sleepless night thinking that she would never see her beloved ring again. Tony assured her that the ring was insured and could be replaced. She didn’t want another one, she wanted hers back. This ring is very special, Tony had given it to her after the birth of their daughter. He came into the hospital room and told Tammy that she had given him something very special and he wanted to give her something special and presented her the ring.
The next morning Tony contacted SRARC and talked to Tom Jones asking for help hopeful that someone could find the ring. A hunt was scheduled at 5:00 that afternoon. Tom, Joe Szemer, Mike Miller, Mark Sillence and Wayne Cree arrived and after meeting up with Tony started hunting. 30 minutes into the hunt Joe Szemer, who had moved into shallower water and out of the hunt area waved Tom Jones over and asked, “is this the ring?” Tom said I think so and took the ring. Joe said to him as he walked off, “if that’s not it I want it back”. Tom made his way back to where Tammy was and found her with a dive mask and her head under the water. He walked over to where she was at and put his hand with her ring on his finger under the water in front of her mask. Tammy’s head came quickly out of the water and said, “Oh, my ring. You found it.” Tony came over and was so happy that he wanted to personally hug everyone that had helped look for the ring.
Tammy told the group later. “I told him even if the insurance pays for it and you get another one, I WON’T WEAR IT.”

Long Clearwater Beach hunt finds and returns lost wedding ring

While water hunting Sunday afternoon Ed Osmar was approached by a man and asked for help. It seems that he and a friend were playing catch in the water and when he tossed the ball his wedding ring slipped off and was lost in the ocean. After asking where he thought the ring was Ed started hunting and after about an hour got a good signal and recovered the ring. Holding it up I said here it is and Paul and his wife ran through the water toward me. His wife spread her arms to give me a hug and Paul looked at the ring and said that’s not mine, so back to looking some more. Well it took another two hours+ but Paul was reunited with his ring.

Awesome effort Ed, congratulations on another great recovery. Paul and his wife had these kind words for Ed after the recovery.

“Ed, you are the best! After hours and hours of searching you found my lost wedding band in the depths of the Gulf of Mexico! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!”

The picture below pretty much sums up the reason we like to do this service.

Emily and her fiancé Arnab have been engaged for 3 weeks and while at the beach Emily took her ring off and put it in the pocket of her shorts under a cabana while she went in the water. After putting on her shorts she realized that her ring was missing and they started searching through the sand and could not find her ring. Arnab told her not to be so upset, the ring was insured and could be replaced. Emily told him that she wanted the ring that he had put on her finger. She contacted Tom Jones to ask for help locating the ring. Tom headed immediately out to Treasure Island with his detector. Upon arriving he met Arnab at the cabana who told him that they had found the ring just a couple of minutes before he had showed up. While waiting for Tom, Arnab was kicking the sand and saw the ring fly out. The couple thanked Tom for being available to help and told him that they had learned a lot that day.

Wedding Ring Lost and Found, then Returned on Madeira Beach, Florida

Jim was at the beach enjoying the day with his family.  He decided to go for a swim and took his ring off for safe keeping, placing it on the beach bag where they had set up.  When he got out someone had moved the bag and the ring was gone.  The family tried sifting the sand for an hour or so making 2 large piles of sifted sand and then gave up.   Not wanting to give up,  Jim’s daughter Chris googled metal detectors and came across the ring finders page where she found SRARC.  Chris called Tom Jones who then passed the information on to team member Stan Flack who was already out hunting in the area.  Stan made his way to Chris at the beach and started hunting the area the family had circled, no ring.  Then Stan knocked down sift pile #1, no ring.  On to sift pile #2, bingo to the delight of one bag moving daughter (shhh).  Chris called her dad down to the beach to share the news and smiles all the way around.
