Mark Greul's Bio
I’m 49 years “young”, married with 3 wonderful children and love God. Helping reunite people with their lost jewelry and sentimental items over the past 1.5 years has become a passion and the ensuing thank-you’s and tear filled hugs are simply priceless. As a Naples resident much of my weekly routine is spent in and around the various beach areas, with which I’m all very familiar. The Lord willing, your lost item will be found, let me be the one to help.

A big thank you to Mark Gruel. You saved the day! (2018)
A big thank you to Mark Gruel. You saved the day! My husband Tom and I were visiting Naples Florida to attend my niece’s wedding.
The day after, we decided to go to the beach , and my ring simply falls off. Friends of ours, about 10 of us, were searching the area I was standing in for about 30 minutes.
Then, one of my friends found Mark Gruel. From the moment I told him where I thought my ring fell, he found my ring within 20 seconds… No exaggeration!
Thank you so much again Mark,
