Earring Lost In Tampa, Recovered By SRARC
A’royri was enjoying time with family in the backyard. She was holding her 2-year-old cousin, who unexpectedly pulled out her gold and diamond cluster earring, then dropped it in the grass. The earring set had been given to A’royri by her brother, and was highly sentimental to her. A’royri and her family gridded the backyard with an old Bounty Hunter metal detector from 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM with no luck. They were about to give up hope when someone discovered Ringfinders and the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club online. A’royri contacted the SRARC, and club president Howard Metts put out a notice of the loss to club members. The next morning, Howard and club members Bill Gallant and Mike Shuler responded to the home. After about 15 minutes of detecting, the beautiful earring was retrieved from the yard and placed into the hand of a very happy A’royri!
