Date Of Recovery 22nd Oct 2018
I received an email a couple of days ago asking for help
" Hi I have lost a small pendant, diamonds set in gold. Is this something you could detect? I know the area it was lost in, and it is a small area. I have the chain so it is only a very small amount of gold.
So today we went to have a look using the Deus with the standard coil and the Deus with the HF Elliptical coil. The pendant was lost will making hay nets for horses when Lizzy caught her necklace and the cain snapped sent the pendant flying. We searched the area for a least 30 minutes without any joy. I then changed the HF frequency to 80 kHz and not long after I found the small gold clasp. We then carried on the search but to no avail. We then checked the hay bags again and I got a medium toned signal. I then used the pin pointer to locate the Gold and Diamond pendant in the hay much to Lizzies delight .

We received a message on our Facebook page
"Hi all. Our daughter went down to Devon yesterday with her bf to visit his relatives. They went to the beach and decided to go for a swim. So daughter took her rings off and put them on the sand by some rocks, up the beach. They went in, and when they came out and got changed, the tide rushed in and swept her rings away. Including the diamond one we gave her for her 18th. She is, understandably, absolutely devastated. Beside herself in fact. She's always so careful, and the one time she thinks she'll keep them safe, this happens. They spent most of today searching until their hands were sore. They're going back in the morning to search again but obviously it's highly unlikely they'll find anything without help. Can anyone assist? Westward Ho, the Burrows. Apparently its the site of the old dump? I'm not familiar with the area so not much help. We're also up in Surrey so feeling useless."
One of the NRRS members Rory McDonnell offered to help.
"About 12 hours total over 3 searches. They were spread out about 20 feet apart"
Sarah Jackson mother of the Daughter that lost the rings replied back
"Thanks to the utter legend that is Rory McDonnell, ALL our daughters lost rings have been found. There are no words enough to convey our gratitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you xx"

Another lost ring email
We had a wonderful Dorset wedding On Monday 23.07. but unfortunately ONE day after the wedding I lost my wedding ring at Lyme Regis beach in the water. Is there any way you could help us?
I am completely devastated..
So we contacted our members on the NRRS FACEBOOK Group and one of our members and Maurice and his wife Jennie offered to brave the stormy weather on Sunday to go and search the beach.
"We spent nearly five hours in the driving rain and huge waves n wash on Lyme Regis town beach today. My wife Jennie and I got soaked throw and took a. EXCALIBUR 2. a CTX3030 and a Deus full with eleven inch coil and set to wet sand . Try as we might the smashing couple that lost the ring the day after their wedding in Abbotsbury last week. I armed them with the Excal and then the CTX but to no avail. After I and my wife had a short break to drink tea n eat half a sarnie we went back to catch the bottom of the tide. 10 minutes after I was doing the gold dance and looking at two overjoyed faces all the way from Germany. Apart from getting a parking ticket cuz the ticket was not visible on the dash.
For the record it was found with the Deus full with 11 inch coil on programme 7 Wet sand and came in as shallow 85 constant .running V4.0.
It was A Maze Zing!!!!!"

The NRRS received an email asking for help.
" Hi, I'm desperate, I've lost my wife's wedding and engagement rings here at Center Parcs, Longleat. Is there any way you can help please? We are only here until tomorrow now.
So we contacted our members on the NRRS FACEBOOK Group and one of our members (Matt on the left) was close enough to go and have a search.
News came in that Matt had found the lost ring for Andrew.
"Morley I can't thank you enough, Matt came along and saved the day! He's my new hero. Thank you so much for your help, you wouldn't believe how happy this has made my wife and I. Matt refused to take any payment from me but I insisted that if he thought of a charity he'd like me to donate to instead to let me know. If he doesn't I'll happily make a donation to your nominated one which I think is CF isn't it? Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts and please keep up the fantastic work!!
