Found American Tourist's Hearing Aid lost on Bondi Beach

Michael Oliver from LOST JEWELLERY RECOVERY worldwide metal detecting services has received multiple call outs for lost rings on Balmoral Beach, Coogee Beach, Maroubra Beach, Bronte Beach, Shelly Beach and a lost mobile phone on Manly Beach and right now a lovely couple from America has just lost their HEARING AID on Bondi Beach Sydney. The search area had cones placed around it BUT some kids took the cones before I arrived. This was a BIG PROBLEM for 2 reasons. 1, hearing aids are one of the HARDEST MOST DIFFICULT things to find with a metal detector and 2, we no longer have the search area in place. This is looking like a FAIL before we even start. I said No WAY MATE!! the sand leaves tracks lets look for what looks familiar. A life guard came to our rescue and he said I was here earlier I placed the cones here for you Michael to search. 

Luckily we seen the tyre track marks in a circle that had circled the area earlier. I said we now have a clear and accurate search area the next issue is theres NOT much metal in your hearing aid i'm going to set up my XP Deus ll metal detector in a SPECIFIC MODE and ramp up a few options in my Metal Detectors settings to get that extra PUNCH in metal detection depth from my metal detector. Just 5 minutes into the search a get a real scratchy signal its barely coming up as a T.ID reading I knew I found the hearing aid as I knew theres very little metal content in the hearing aid and this is exactly the T.ID response I expected to see. I reach down and move the sand and BINGO the hearing aid is revealed. The owners from America were so excited screaming THANK YOU Michael. We are on vacation and leave Sydney tomorrow for a cruise to New Zealand. Michael If we did't find this hearing aid today it would of cost us our vacation as this hearing aid cost us over $1,500 it's NOT something we can replace so easy.
