Well, we're certainly aware of it- the team turned up mob-handed at Gina's place recently to carry out a hands and knees fingertip search of her garden. It was a fantastic piece of team spirit, but sadly without the desired result. :(

Pleased to say that someone found this for Gina today- right where we thought it had to be, but didn't find it last year- her bonfire! We must have come so close- we fingertip searched so much there, and the metal detectors were going crazy, but it seemed to be endless foils from fag packets and bits of light bulb etc! Apparently it's still in good nick, too. :D

Glad she has it, but gutted it was there and we had not got it on day 1... that and given the monumental task you guys had undertaken to search Gina's grounds, and the planned follow up visit to dissect the fire pit and the pond sump in better weather with a large tarp, it's bitter sweet due to the effort put in by everyone... You guys had pretty much conducted a fingertip search that would have utilised three police search teams over a weekend.... and you did it in one day and with a smile !

Gina if your reading this....... Buy some Kevlar cord and quadrooople knot the heck out of it so you know it's safe ;) you know the cord won't snap that's for sure... I bet the relief is monumental for you so happy days :D

That's right, they were rather nice too....we will have to return the favour when we see her next...


The weather had been good that day until mid afternoon as I recall it chucked it down... Luckily we had covered 99% of the garden... Just the darn fire pit !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It's going to eat me for a while that one

I'm just bloody glad it turned up! It had to be in the bonfire, we knew it was, we just missed it. It's special to me too - all that crawling about in mud 140 feet underwater looking for it the first time.

It survived very well. I'm delighted that it's back - a great start to the weekend.
