Yesterday I was contacted by George and Julia on behalf of their son Gavin. While they were at the beach enjoying themselves the day before Their son Galvin lost his Iphone 13 pro in the sand. They used find my phone to get an approximate location but it was no where to be found. At some point they believed the battery was dead because it was no longer putting out a location. They feared someone may have found it or the beach rake picked it up. I suggested the called the public works dept to see if they had it. They invited them to come down and look through the pile from the beach rake. No luck there. Once they confirmed it was not there they asked me to come out and try a search. I met them at the location and we walked to the area it last pinged using George’s phone. I started doing my search and within 5ft I got a strong signal, But in order to make sure I didn’t damage the phone with my beach scoop, I instead started digging by hand. While Gavin went to grab a plastic beach shovel I kept digging by hand about 8 inches down in an area the tide was washing over and sure enough, It was his phone! Luckily it was not water logged! Another happy ending. They were all so happy I found it!
Gavin’s Phone! Watch here!
3 Days ago Joana was referred to me by fellow Ring finder Ed Cropski. She reached out to me within a few hours and explained to me that while she was in town visiting family her necklace broke while body surfing with her kids and had lost her late husbands ring and her late mothers ring. She gave me photos of where she was sitting and where she was swimming so my friend Dennis (Another Ring finder member) and I went there that night to conduct a search. After about 3hrs we were unable to find ether of them. I then reached out the next day only to find out we were a little too far over from where we needed to be. So we went again the following night and searched some more and bingo! I found both rings, About 1-2ft apart from each other! They had already sank about 8″ deep!. Joana was so very happy and relieved when i sent her a picture to let her know I had them. Another great ending to the story!
On September 3rd i was contacted by Jennifer. While her and her husband were visiting and spending time at the beach in LBI, Her husband went down to the water to rinse his hands off during high tide and off came his ring. In seconds it was gone! After 2 months and 8 days I was able to find it last night buried about 15 inches in the middle of the slope! They are thrilled to hear after all this time it is on it’s way back to them!
I received a call from Tomas about a cross he lost. He explained it was a huge sentimental item, and it was irreplaceable. We agreed I would head there early the next morning. He gave me all the information, including the marked location on the phone GPS. With that I figured it would be a simple recovery. Upon arrival i marked the location, and got to work. After no luck, I examined pics he sent with fixed objects on shore. I remarked the spot 35′ away, and within 10 min the cross was in my scoop.
