Lost necklace in the sand, Brant Beach NJ, LBI, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

Larry sent me a message later in the evening about his sons cross and chain that were lost in the sand on LBI that day. He was sure of the location but was unable to find them because apparently they sunk deep into the sand. It was pretty late to go that night, so we arranged to meet EARLY the next morning. He drew me a map with all the details to where he and his family were set up, including approximate measurements from all fixed landmarks. I arrived around 5AM and headed out to the spot that was marked. I started to grid out one area when I saw the headlights of the beach rake, knowing my time was limited, quickly working the first spot with no luck. I checked my map again and decided to move south about 20′ and Bingo!!! there it was. Luckily the beach rake had only made 1 pass along the high tide line, before I was able to locate his sons beautiful chain and cross. I guess we could def. call it a “treasure map”. Just as I was snapping a few pics Larry was walking down the dune walkover, and was totally amazed I found them already. Another happy ending.

Gold/Ruby pendant lost in the sand, Bradley Beach NJ, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

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.
