Asci is working hard. He lives in Marshfield, which is more than 75 miles from North Beach, and could have ignored the post by simply swiping up on his phone. However, he decided to intervene because of the significance of the ring to Teal. He did not leave any stone unturned in his search, knowing that it once belonged to her great-grandmother, as mentioned in the Facebook post: "We've all lost something that was important to us." "I had to put in some effort." Asci's children gave him a metal detector for Father's Day about five years ago. Despite his lack of experience, locating misplaced items has long been one of his favourite pastimes.

The next evening, August 9, Asci arrived at the beach with his wife, who agreed to accompany him on his search for the ring. "My wife and I decided to sleep in the car next to the beach, because I wanted to be there early for low tide," they explained after finding a parking spot.
