Gold Cross lost on the beach, Beach Haven NJ (LBI), recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

Christina called and asked about recovering a sentimental cross that was lost on the beach while playing football. I asked her the details, Jack lost it while doing a spin move catching the football. I was heading to LBI for another recovery and told her I would swing by after that, it was in a safe area and they would be the for a bit anyhow. When I arrived her husband Brady met me at the dune crossover, we talked for a bit, and I started the search. After some junk targets were cleared out I got a solid but faint signal I originally thought might be tin foil. Well, it wasn’t, the cross was in my scoop. We waited a bit for Jack to come out of the water to confirm this cross was his, snapped some pics, and off I went. Another save in the books.

Samit called about a beautiful pendant his daughter had lost, just minutes before, when when she noticed her chain had broken. He was very concerned, there were storms all around, the tide was rising, and they were getting ready to head home after a nice day at the beach. I was at a family party, but arranged to meet him in 45 minutes. Once I arrived he showed me the exact area she was in when she noticed her broken chain, and missing pendant. I searched that area pretty quickly with no luck. Samit then showed me the small area in the water where it could have possibly fallen, and I started in the deepest area, working small tight sweeps. About 5 paths up the hill I got a real nice faint signal, and it sounded pretty promising. I dug one DEEP hole hoping to have it in the first scoop. Sure enough, I dumped it out, kicked away some sand, and the bright red ruby was poking out. The entire family was shocked I was able to find it. Luckily it stayed very close to the spot it fell. Another happy ending.

Paul called about a very sentimental cross and pendant that was lost on the beach the night before. He explained that this was the first thing his son had given to his girlfriend, and it would be fantastic if I would be able to find it for them. They lost it the night before after taking it off and placing it on the blanket. I was up there the next morning, made one path along the high tide line where the blanket was laying, and sure enough, I had it in my scoop. I sent some pics to Paul, but he was busy and didn’t see them till later. He was absolutely amazed I was able to find them, and said his son isn’t going to believe it, they figured it was gone into the ocean forever. I made arrangements to meet him a few days later. Paul and his wife are going to figure out a way to totally surprise them, I believe next weekend.
