Before driving to help someone find a ring or lost item, these are the questions you should ask so that you know what you are getting into. It’s important that the item owner thinks hard about their situation information needs to be factual, it is important that you don’t waste your time and drive on a long trip based on intuition rather than fact.
Are you willing to travel back to the location to point out the area you think you lost the item?
How sure are you that you lost the item in the area you say?
How big of an area was it lost in?
How long ago was it lost?
When did you notice it missing?
Did you feel the ring come off?
Is it lost in water?
Was it lost on the beach?
Was it lost in a picnic area?
What material is the ring made of?
Was it lost near livestock?
What have you done thus far in searching?
Has anyone else used a detector to look for it?
Do we have permission to enter the area where the item was lost?
