Swamp Search for Jewelry Collection. North Toronto.

  • from North York (Ontario, Canada)

Last week I had a call from Mark about his girlfriend’s jewelry.

It’s a long, sad, and complex story, but here is the short version …


Mark and his thirteen year old son had an argument and the son was quite upset.
Being angry, the son got into
Mark’s girlfriend’s jewelry box and took quite a few pieces of jewelry out of it.
There were several yellow gold rings and other yellow gold bracelets, along with many white gold and diamond rings.

When the missing jewelry was discovered, the son said he threw all of it towards a swamp.

Mark then found me online and I made it up to the swamp on Monday August 19th in north Toronto to meet him.

After getting many more details, I ended up searching in the swamp on three separate occasions and found every single piece of yellow gold that was thrown.

No white gold was found whatsoever.
Mark admitted this was his worst fear. He had a feeling all I would find was the yellow gold as the white gold and diamond rings were very expensive pieces.

Well, I found all of the yellow ….but all the white gold and diamond rings remain missing.

I know one thing for a fact….they are not in the swamp.
We may never know what really happened to them.

I took several video clips in the swamp and tried to piece them together somewhat.
It was just difficult to do on this search. Crazy hot, mosquito infested, sickening smell, taking sweaty,latex gloves on and off got really tiring and frustrating but I did what I could do.
Not the best video you’ll ever see but it pretty much explains the story.

Thank you Mark for your generosity on this search and I sincerely hope the white gold and diamond rings turn up somehow, someday.

Take care,
Mark Ellis

I’ll post a pic of all the jewelry together when Mark sends it to me.
