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.
Steve and his friends were in Ocean City, NJ when he lost his wedding band during a beach volleyball match. It got knocked off his finger after he hit an incoming ball, and he was not sure where it landed. He called me and I met him a little while later to start the search. I started in the area where he stood during the game and worked back and forth in the sand court. The ring rang up on the opposite side of the net and the group was able to go back to enjoying their time at the shore in Ocean City, NJ.
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!
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!)
I was referred to Karim by Fellow ring finder Ed Cropski. While Karim and his family were at the beach in Spring Lake NJ, Karim’s Heirloom ring slipped off his finger and disappeared in the sand. I met them at the beach in about 30 mins and once he showed me the area where they were I got right to work. Within 10mins Karim had his ring back! Him and his family were so happy and relieved that I found it. Another Happy ending!
Later in the day I was contacted about another lost item. While Greg was doing yard work and trimming trees, A branch became snagged on his necklace. When he pulled the branch away unknown to him his cross broke and fell. I drove up to his house in the evening and started a search in the areas he showed me. It wasn’t turning up so we turned our attention to the piles of branches. After moving everything around a bit, Sure enough, There it was at the bottom of the pile! Another happy ending!
