Recovery #173 Matt St.Germain
Over labor day weekend I was contacted by John. While he was at the beach with his wife and friends enjoying the day, He removed his ring to put on some sun block and placed his ring on the arm of his chair. He forgot to put it back on and it wound up falling into the sand and disappeared. I promptly headed out there to help. In about 5 mins he had his ring back! Another great ending!
The other day I was tagged in a post that Gretchen started about her Husband John’s wedding ring. He took it off and placed it in his beach chair before going swimming. He forgot it was in there when they packed up to head home and did not realize it until later that day after the hour ride home. Gretchen reached out to me and once I got the details of where they had their chairs set up, I went out there that night to search for it. In less than an hour I had John’s ring in my hands! I sent them a picture and the couldn’t believe it! They were very happy and relieved! I met John the next day to return it.
Recently I was referred to Veronica by Fellow ring finder Ed Cropski about her Husband Cagney’s Lost Gold Necklace and Cross.
While they were at the beach enjoying the day with friends, Cagney was about 75ft into the surf when he was hit by a wave and his necklace came over his head and vanished. Once I spoke with Veronica I told her I would go out there for the late night low tide to see if I could help. Luckily the super moon made for lower than usual tides which would allow me to get out that far safely during the night. After about 2 hours of searching I was able to find it! Veronica was totally shocked when I sent her a photo! Her and Cagney were so happy! I love what I do!

While out for another recovery I was contacted by Patrick.
Earlier that day while at the beach with his family his very sentimental wedding ring was pulled off by his daughter and sank into the sand. They didn’t know exactly where but they did mark the area. I told him I could be there in about 20mins. I met him and Laura at the beach and once they showed me where they were I began a meticulous search. After digging a few coins and junk, I got a nice signal on my detector and sure enough it was Patrick’s ring! They were ecstatic I had found it! Another happy ending!

Recently I was referred to Pete about his lost wedding ring in the surf in Seaside Heights, NJ by fellow ring finders Steve Pacifico and Dennis Burlingame. While Pete was there enjoying the day he felt his wedding ring slip off his finger into the waves. I went out there that night but the tide was coming back in a bit too quickly for me to safely go further into the surf at night. I vowed to Pete that I would return the next morning to continue the search. The next day I promptly returned and resumed my search into deeper water. Within an hour I had his ring in my scoop! I sent Pete a photo and he called me immediately. He was very happy to know that I found it for him! Within minutes of that phone call Pete had his ring back on his finger where it belongs! Another Success!
Yesterday I was contacted by George and Julia on behalf of their son Gavin. While they were at the beach enjoying themselves the day before Their son Galvin lost his Iphone 13 pro in the sand. They used find my phone to get an approximate location but it was no where to be found. At some point they believed the battery was dead because it was no longer putting out a location. They feared someone may have found it or the beach rake picked it up. I suggested the called the public works dept to see if they had it. They invited them to come down and look through the pile from the beach rake. No luck there. Once they confirmed it was not there they asked me to come out and try a search. I met them at the location and we walked to the area it last pinged using George’s phone. I started doing my search and within 5ft I got a strong signal, But in order to make sure I didn’t damage the phone with my beach scoop, I instead started digging by hand. While Gavin went to grab a plastic beach shovel I kept digging by hand about 8 inches down in an area the tide was washing over and sure enough, It was his phone! Luckily it was not water logged! Another happy ending. They were all so happy I found it!
Over the weekend I was referred to Raman by fellow ring finder Ed Cropski for a lost wedding ring in Lbi NJ. While he was enjoying the day at the beach with his family at some point his young daughter came to him and told him she found his necklace. Well, His ring was on his necklace so he could tuck it into his wetsuit when scuba diving and didn’t get around to putting it back on his finger. He found about us through someone else. I got the details on where he was. Turned out he wasn’t exactly sure. But he knew it was between 2 streets. A full block of beach I was going to have to search. I went out there that night and started the search effort. After about an hour. Bingo! I had his ring! He was blown away when I told him! We met up the next day so I could return it to him. Another happy client!
Last night I was contacted by Sandra. She was referred to me by fellow ring finder Ed Cropski. While at the beach with her family she removed her Platinum diamond wedding band and placed it on the arm rest of her chair to put lotion on. She became distracted and forgot to put her ring back on. When they left the ring fell off the chair and disappeared into the sand. She did not realize it was missing until after getting back to the house. I made arrangements with her to meet at the location for a search later at night. She showed me the area they were sitting and in about 20mins I found it! Sandra and her friend Lisa were overjoyed! Another Happy ending!
Thursday evening 6/30/22 I was contacted by Alexandra. While she was at the military beach in Sea Girt NJ with her sister, She felt her engagement ring slip off her finger and disappear into the water. She and her husband are active duty military so she was even more devastated because her husband is currently doing a tour in Turkey. After doing a google search she found me and reached out. Once we went over the details of where she and her sister were, I told her I would go out there that very night during the overnight low tide but I had limited time as I had to be at work Friday morning. After spending about 3hrs searching for the ring I was unable to locate it and had to leave. I assured her I was not going to give up easily and would try again Friday night into Saturday morning. The only issue now was to get there before the pending thunderstorms and hopefully recover it before the sands shifted. After about 3hrs searching the area again and also expanding my search, I had her ring in my scoop! Check out my video to experience a bit of a recovery and her reaction! I love what I do!😁
Last night I was contacted by Kim on behalf of her husband Patrick. While their son was wearing Patrick’s necklace the clasp came undone and the 4 charms on it disappeared into the grass. Patrick found 2 of them but couldn’t find the other 2. I went up to their house to see if I could help. After Patrick showed me where he found the first 2, I started searching and within 5 mins found the others about 3ft from one another! Another success! (The half locket charm was given to his Grandmother as a child in the year 1912!)
