WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Pearl City pastor has developed a hobby of helping people find things they thought they would never see again.
Kai Adric is one of those people you might see walking up and down the beach with headphones and sonar equipment.
On Tuesday, he was out at Waikiki Beach with one mission: to help a California woman find her lost wedding ring.
"I got a call yesterday that a lady lost her ring," Adric said.
He said she lost it on Saturday, July 28, and asked her to give him all the details on where she might've lost it.
"I did yesterday for four-and-a-half hours and I didn't find it, but something told me early in the morning to go back down there and try again and I did, and I found it."
The ring belongs to Lana Dolzhansky, who comes from Van Nuys, Calif.
She told her family and friends about the mishap on her second day of her family vacation in Hawaii in late July.
She says it put a damper on her vacation. And to make matters worse, friends and family told her that she would never see it again.
Adric couldn't wait to give her a call after finding the ring, and when he did, she was "shocked."
After making the call, Adric went to UPS to deliver the ring back to its rightful owner.
Adric doesn't do this for money. He says he loves giving back and wants people to know the spirit of aloha is still out there, stronger than ever.
His hobby has a name: It's now called "Precious to Me." It's currently a private website, only visible to friends – though that may change soon.
He says it makes him happy, especially getting the reactions that the people have getting things back that are "Precious to Me."
