Recovery #9 for 2021
I was contacted by Charlie and his wife Susanne on Thursday July 15th. When they were visiting the beach in Seaside Park NJ, Charlie went into the water for a swim but he forgot to remove his necklace and wrap it around his wrist while holding the medallion like he usually does. As soon as he dove into a wave his necklace came up and over his head and disappeared into the surf. Charlie has been wearing this necklace for 40 years! Not long after, 3 guys came by while metal detecting and tried to help find it to no avail. Charlie left his contact with one of them (Keith Pederson, Who also recommended he calls the Ring Finders) Encase they find it. The other 2 searched for days but they still could not find it. One of them unfortunately had every intention of keeping it. Which is why I always tell people to be careful who they give information to and always make sure you call a professional with proven track record of returning lost items like us here at TheRingFinders.com! The necklace has now been out in the surf for a week. After getting the details I needed, I went out there the very next morning before sunrise to grid the whole slope of the beach as the tide goes out. Coming up empty handed I waited until the sun started coming up and proceeded to get into the water. The surf was a bit on the rough side but tolerable. As I walked along the drop off and turned around to go a bit into deeper water I heard a nice solid tone. I carefully dug it out with my scoop. Low and behold I had Charlie’s necklace!. I sent him and his wife a photo and got the reaction I never get tired of! They were so happy with joy that I found it!.
