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.

Lost wedding ring in the sand, Surf City NJ, LBI, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

  I was at a family party when I got a call from Sal. He was on the beach in Surf City when his wedding ring fell into the sand and disappeared. We agreed to meet ASAP as the party was coming to an end. I arrived on the beach and we headed out to the location. After clearing the area they had believed it was in I came up empty handed. We searched another spot to the north a bit and came up empty handed again. Another family member had arrived in the meantime and he was to the south pointing to a totally different location. I went over to speak with him and he was positive of the area they were in. Just a few swings later and the ring was in my scoop. Once again, it’s just a matter of finding the right area to search. Many times the first few spots are not the right ones. After the beach clears off its much harder to find the exact location so remember, mark the spot with google maps on your cell phone and call ASAP.
