Now that beach season has arrived, one New Brunswick man can be found spending his time using a metal detector searching through the sand at Killarney Lake in Fredericton.
Steve Bober is a part of a group called Ringfinders, which acts as a kind of lost and found service for reuniting people with their jewelry.
Friday marked an anniversary of the first ring he ever found using his equipment.
"It was for a couple who had lost the wedding ring within 24 hours of the wedding in the water, so I went out and found it for them," said Bober.
As Bober visits the beach at Killarney Lake, lifeguards often ask him to take a look under the water whenever beachgoers report fishing hooks or sharp objects in the lake.
"I pull [it] out and take [it] with me so that they don't end up injuring the kids or any of the bigger kids who are playing in the water," he said.
