If you have ever lost something really valuable or sentimental you know how anxiety-inducing it is. You can’t sleep, you feel guilty, it is not a fun situation to be in.
Over the weekend officer Bob McGrath (an Animal Control Officer in Rye) was patrolling Cable Beach. He came upon a woman named Olivia who was out metal detecting. He could tell she wasn't out there recreationally, this was not for fun!
It came out that she was looking for her engagement ring that she only had for a month. The ring had fallen off her hand in the water and she was desperately trying to find it.
They chatted for a little longer and then went their separate ways but Olivia’s story was weighing heavy on officer McGrath’s mind and heart.
That evening around 9:30 he went back out to the beach where Olivia had been searching. He has been metal detecting for years so he thought he would give it a go when it was low tide and see if he had any luck.
Sure enough, after about an hour he was able to locate the ring. The next morning, he was able to reunite Olivia with her long-lost jewel. According to a post on the Rye NH Police Department’s Facebook page, there are few things better than seeing the joy on someone’s face when they are reunited with something they thought they had lost forever.
Congratulations to Olivia on your engagement and being reunited with your ring. And way to go Officer Mcgrath, way to go above and beyond the call of duty!
