Lost Gold necklace in the ocean for one week at Seaside Park NJ found by Matt St.Germain

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!.

 

Lost wedding band in Lavallette NJ found by Matt St.Germain

Recovery #8 2021
This morning I was contacted by Hope after getting home from another recovery. The day before while at the beach with her husband she was holding her husband’s wedding band on her finger for safe keeping and not long after it slipped off her finger into the sand. They looked for awhile but were unable to find it. She was then referred to me on local Lavallette community page. I made arrangements to meet her at the spot where she was. Within a minute of beginning my search I had her husbands ring in the scoop! Another success and happy ending!

Lost rings in LBI NJ Found by Matt St.Germain

  • from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Recovery #7 for 2021
Today I was contacted by fellow ring finder Dave Milsted in reference to Tracey and her husband Chris. While in the northern part of LBI NJ on vacation and enjoying a day at the beach yesterday. Tracey had removed her four rings and put them in the pocket of her shorts to apply lotion. Later that day they picked up and moved further up the beach to avoid high tide. At the end of the day when they were packing up to leave. Tracey went into her pocket to put her rings back on and realized they were not there. They tried to search for a while and when I called them they were on their way to a store to buy a basic metal detector. I explained to them the down falls of using them and also how much of a learning curve there is. They decided it would be best to have me come and help. I met them later in the afternoon for low tide so I could do a thorough search. Once I arrived Tracey and Chris walked out to the beach with me to show me where they were.
Their neighbors/ friends were there also and gave some input with more details. I began my search at the high tide mark and worked my way all the way down into the water at the drop off. No luck there. I then continued further into the dry sand and as I did everyone was nice enough to move their chairs over so I could continue. One of the neighbors was also nice enough to walk back to her house and bring me a few bottles of cold water. This very nice older couple moved their chairs as well and sure enough, Right where they were sitting, I got the mixed tones I was looking for! Out came Tracey’s rings! Everyone was so excited and happy that I found them. Tracey and her husband Chris were so happy and relived! Tracey gave me a great big hug of joy! (it’s nice to be able to get those again) These happy ending’s never get old!
