You likely know Richard Angelico as the investigative reporter that shined the beam of justice on nefarious characters for many decades. Well, he’s casting a different beam now. Mr. Angelico uses all kinds of metal and other detectors to find a wide range of artifacts from the Civil War era.
He does research on areas around the country where he believes relics may be hiding and then goes after them. He’s built quite a reputation as the “go to” guy when it concerns relic hunting.
That proved true when just the other day he received a call from a very concerned family about a precious item that had been lost.
The family of a young lady named Ericka, called him yesterday about renting an underwater machine to look for a brand spanking new engagement ring she lost this past weekend while swimming in the Pearl River with her fiance and friends.
Of course his first question was, “Do you know how to use an underwater detector and how to grid search for a lost item?”
So, long story short, Mr. Angelico called ace water detectorist Mal Theriot. He and Mal headed out to the Pearl River this morning with the young lady and her family in two boats. After 2 1/2 hours Mr. Angelico found the ring in shallow water and everyone was happy once again.
