Lost Engagement ring in LBI NJ Found by: Matt St.Germain

  • from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)

A few days ago I was referred to Stephen and his wife Elizabeth by fellow ring finder Dave Milsted for her lost engagement ring. They are here for the week and while they were at the beach with their children, Elizabeth was standing on the slope in the wet sand speaking with a friend. she went to remove her rings to let her friend get a better look at them and as she did, A larger than normal wave came up and caught them off guard. She managed to save her wedding band but her engagement ring went flying. I met Stephen there later that day and he showed me where it happened. I began to search but I could only safely go half way done the slope due to high and very rough surf conditions. I promised him I would come back in a day or two when the surf calmed down in order to continue the search. I went back this afternoon without making them aware but they actually arrived there to hang out when I was halfway done. I wasn’t having any luck and decided to come back that night when everyone left so I could go over more areas. At that very moment my machine gave me the kind of signal I was hoping for. After I removed a few scoops of sand I had her ring! It was buried about 8″ down already. Stephen looked over at me and said no luck? I smiled and held up the ring, He started to walk over and as he got closer he realized I found the ring. He yelled at the top of his lungs. ” I can’t frickin’ believe you found it !! ” Then Elizabeth saw what was happening and quickly came over. They were completely shocked that I managed to find it. They were ecstatic and very happy! I am so happy I was able to do that for them! Another happy ending!

Recovery #4 for 2021
Today I was referred to Anna by Fellow Ringfinders Ed Cropski and Dennis Burlingame. After speaking with her I made my way to Seaside Park to meet her and her Fiancée’ along with their friend. At some point she took off her rings and placed them on the arm of the beach chair and forgot to put them back on. It wasn’t until 2hrs after leaving the beach she realized they were gone so they went back to try and find them with no luck. Once I arrived and spoke to them a bit I began my search. Within about 5 mins I found all three of them! They were very happy and relieved since they just started their vacation. Another great ending!

Lost Wedding Band Found By Matt St.Germain Aka Jersey Shore Lost Ring Finder Mantaloking NJ

  • from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)

Last night around 10:30pm I received an email from Dan. While he was at the beach yesterday he went for a swim during high tide. On his way back in he was hit by a wave and his platinum wedding band slipped off into the surf. Luckily he recorded GPS coordinates where he was at the time. I went there this morning during low tide and using his coordinates on my phone I was able to get to the right area. Once I got into position I began to grid search the slope and within 20mins I had it in my scoop! It had already sank about 8-10 inches! I sent Dan a photo of the ring and he called me immediately. He was overjoyed! I am going to meet him during the week to return it to him. Another happy ending!

Yesterday I received a call from Dean. He had taken his wedding ring off and put it in the cup holder of his beach chair before going for a swim. Later that day while packing up, His wife had folded up the chairs and as they began walking they realized he didn’t put it back on. By then the ring had fallen out of the chair and into the sand. His Sister brought them her metal detector to try and find it but didn’t have any luck. I made arrangements to meet them at this beach club. The club gave them my info since I did a recovery there about 2 weeks ago. Once I arrived, Dean showed me where they were sitting and the approximate path they took when they left. After a little over an hour I found his ring in the path they walked!. He told me he had little hope it would be found. I’m happy I was able to get it back to him. Him and his wife were very happy!! Another great day!

Earlier today I received a call From Mike & Michele. While introducing their adorable little baby girl to her very first beach experience Michele’s wedding band got lost in the sand. They were getting ready to start packing it in and when her husband Mike was giving her back her rings their shade tent and umbrella got swept away by a gust of wind. Mike was able to catch the tent and during that moment he had Michele’s wedding band on his pinky but it was no longer there. A friend of Michele’s referred her to me. I made plans to meet them at the spot they were at yesterday once i got home from work. Once I met them and they showed me the general area where to search I got right to work. After about an hour it had not turned up yet. So Mike asked a few people sitting nearby if they wouldn’t mind moving over a bit to where I already searched. They kindly obliged. Within my second pass I got a good signal and low and behold I found it! They were as happy as can be! A wonderful memory with their daughters first beach experience and Michelle having her ring back where it belongs! I love this hobby!!

3 days ago I was made aware of a lost engagement ring ad by fellow Ringfinder John Favno within 20mins of it being listed. I reached out to Jeffrey and Briana to see.if I can help. Jeffrey got back to me quickly and explained it was lost in the dry sand on the 20th while visiting friends. A neighbor had tried to find it with his metal detector but unfortunately was unsuccessful. Once they gave me as much information as possible about where they were, I went out there two days later late at night to give it a try. After about 2.5hrs of searching I found it! They were so happy to hear it! As requested I left it with the local PD for them when they came back to the area. Another great day!

 

Ring Recovery #6

  • from Sea Isle City (New Jersey, United States)

Wedding ring recovered in Ocean City NJ. I got a call from fellow ringfinder John Favno asking if I could attempt a recovery in Ocean City. I went there and battled the surf and 4 ft waves to take the ring back from Davy Jones locker using my Minelab Equinox and my T Rex scoop. The owner was quite surprised and happy to have their heirloom returned.

2 Recoveries In One Day

  • from Sea Isle City (New Jersey, United States)

A stellar day with my ring recovery mentor Edward Cropski. I got a call from a crying woman who lost her ring in the surf in Atlantic City. Then a few minutes later I got a call by a man who lost his wedding band in Brigantine. Ed and I went to Brigantine first. When Ed turned his machine on, the ring was right under his coil! Needless to say the family was much appreciative. Then off to AC we went. After about a little over an hour my Foxy Noxy gave me a solid 10 signal. Bam! There was the ring. When I brought it to her she began to cry tears of joy. Probably my best find to date. It’s very satisfying to return an heirloom when someone thinks it’s gone forever!!!

This is my official 4th and 5th recovery. I have just retired from 25 yrs of Law Enforcement service and can dedicate my time to doing recoveries.
