Lost bracelet in the lagoon, Beach Haven NJ, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

  Dominick sent me a message asking if I would be able to recover his bracelet that slipped off his wrist into the lagoon. He was concerned because it was already in there for about 2 days, and I told him that is no problem, it could be 2 years, providing the area had not been disturbed. With that he said he had already tried diving down with a snorkel, using a clam rake, and a few other methods, including a net with a mesh bag. The next day I was in his area and decided to swing by, before agreeing to take on the task. All looked good for the recovery, and told him we would try for the next day or so. Once I got started, I searched one area that had many signals, but one in particular that sounded, SWEET, so that’s the one I concentrated on. After about 20 min. the bracelet was in my scoop, working blind, in a deep lagoon, isn’t the an easy task. If you are reading this story, and have a similar situation, items can be recovered many years later, providing the area hasn’t been disturbed, call ASAP and possibly I can reunite you with your lost valuables.  njringfinder.com  609-713-3929

Wedding ring lost in the bay, Beach Haven NJ, LBI, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

  I received a message from Yvonne asking if I would be able to get her husbands wedding ring out of the bay. It slipped off his finger getting out of their boat the night before. I was a bit worried about the water depth, knowing how much tide there is on the bay side of LBI, also how much mud was on the bottom, which always is a huge factor with water recoveries. They had returned home and explained that whatever worked best for me to have at it. I was able to go the following afternoon when the conditions were perfect. Luckily there was a dock ladder, because it was about 6′ down to the water, and  around 5′ deep, also there  was about 4″ of mud, so I was just able to maneuver with the water depth, but was still able to get the ring in my scoop within 30 minutes. The ring was returned about a week later, unfortunately I never got a chance to meet Alex or Yvonne, when Alex picked up the ring, I was in the water working on another successful recovery.
