    Wedding Band found & returned, on TV

    Long story short ....

    Found a post on craigslist over a week ago, fella had lost his wedding band. Contacted him for the details, spent several days hunting for it. Didn't come up with it until this past Sunday ... 7 days from the date of it's loss, which at our beach, is a miracle due to the sheer volume of hunters....

    Come to find out, it was the local meteorologists ring, met him at the beach today and the ring, all 10.5g's of it, was returned and news crew made a story out of it.

    Miracle indeed.

    How deep was it?

    Was it found anywhere near where he said he lost it?

    That was cool that he thought to bring a camera man and that it made it on the air.

    Congrats to you.

    It was 7-8 inches and was fairly close to where he thought he had lost it.
