Family Heirloom Ring Recovered on Indian Rocks Beach, Florida

Future Florida residents, Mike and Courtney Chenkus, were relaxing on the beach at Indian Rocks and decided to have some fun tossing a football. Mike was about waist deep and tossing the ball when he was hit by a large wave and felt his wedding ring slide off his finger, disappearing into the Gulf. The ring had previously belonged to Mike’s father and was over 50 years old, a true family treasure. While devastated by the loss, Mike and Courtney did what they could to mark the location. Later that evening, Mike Googled “lost ring Clearwater” and found the SRARC website. After speaking with team member, Stan Flack, Stan reached out to team member Ed Osmar. Ed & Mike then arranged a hunt. Mike described where he thought the ring was lost. Ed factored in the tide change and conditions and after about 30 minutes was happily returning the ring to Mike! Courtney happened to be videoing the special moment on her cell phone! The entire family was extremely grateful and excited to see the ring back on Mike’s hand! Nice work, Ed!
