I received a message from Marisa on my Ring Finders South Jersey Facebook page about her antique wedding band that was lost yesterday. She was standing in the surf in Longport, NJ when a wave came in and caused the ring to slide off her finger. She saw it drop into the ocean and thought she would never see it again. Ironically, she happened to see the news segment earlier in the day about a lost wedding band that I found and reached out to me. I went out at sunrise to catch low tide since it was lost in the surf. After roughly 35 minutes of gridding the surf and wet sand, I was able to find it!
I received a Facebook message from Lexi yesterday who asked if I could find her iPhone that was lost on the beach in Sea Isle City, NJ. I met with Lexi and Lucy yesterday afternoon and got the details. Lucy used the find my phone app to help find the approximate location. A group of beachgoers graciously moved so I could expand the search out by 10 ft. The phone was found buried a few inches under the sand.
Someone tagged me in a post on Facebook about a gold bracelet that was lost yesterday in Sea Isle City, NJ. Pat didn’t realize his bracelet was missing until he was home later that day. He thought it may have gotten caught on his umbrella while packing up and dropped in the sand. He gave me the area where he was sitting and it was recovered in around 20 minutes!

This young man lost a very special silver pendant at Jericho Beach, three days later he reaches out for help. We made arrangements to meet at the beach unfortunately it would have to be after I finished work, so we set up a time for 1:30 AM to search for the silver pendant.
After meeting Vinny and his sister and her boyfriend in the early hours of the morning we walked along the beach to the area where he lost his pendant. After removing a lot of trash in the area I begin my search for almost two hours, after cleaning out all the target signals except for one big iron target, I decided to move all the sand away from the Iron and that was a good thing as Murphy’s Law would have it… I found his pendant which was right on top of the iron target.
Close to 3:30 AM I was able to surprise Vinny with his cherished silver pendant…

I have the best job in the world, I love helping people more than anything I’ve ever done in my lifetime. I get to make people smile, I get to hear their stories of what their rings & jewelry means to them, and how happy they are when I find it.
Kurt called me up and told me his fiance’ Angela lost her ring while playing Frisbee with their dog, Bear. The grassy area she lost it in was a somewhat challenging search area. Woods bordered one side of a rather narrow plateau walkway with a sloping hill and long grass to the other side. Since Kurt and Angela had searched most of the day before and even into the night with flashlights, my fear was the ring had flown off her finger and landed somewhere on either side of the path. Luckily after about 20 minutes of searching, I got a good signal and was able to spot her ring in the grass and return it to them.
I couldn’t have asked to meet nicer people today. Kurt is a very pleasant young man and his lovely fiance’ Angela came outside afterwards to express her gratitude to Julie and I for finding her ring. Even Bear was happy and jumping all over us although I guess that’s just what dogs do. He seemed excited though. In yet another realization of how strange things are now living in the COVID 19 social distancing era, Angela said she was so relieved and wanted to give me a hug but said she’d respect the six feet rule. Even though I missed the handshakes and hugs that usually go along with a successful recovery, I’m happy to have helped out Kurt and Angela (and Bear) in their time of need and wish them luck and happiness.
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.
On Thursday late afternoon I got a call from a woman named Lauren who lost her ring on Monday in South Laguna Beach who was spending time with her family by the fire pits. Because it was a few days later, she did not think there was a chance that her diamond engagement ring could be found. She asked me if there was any chance, and I told her there was always a chance. I drove down to the beach at around 4:30 am to get there early, so that the tides would be right and not too high up on the beach. I swung my coil a few times and after digging a few nails near the fire pits, I heard a solid signal, dug it up, and there was her beautiful diamond ring. Lauren and her family got to the beach about half an hour later and she was ecstatic to see that I had actually found her ring. She thought it’d be like finding a needle in a haystack since the surf from the previous days had covered the fire pits where she had lost her ring. She hugged her husband and kids and was very happy to be reunited with her ring. Shortly after I was back on the road, hoping to beat traffic to head to work.
