Lost necklace on beach Tag | The Ring Finders

Lost Gold Cross Pendant on Beach in Long Beach Island,New Jersey Recovered by NJ Lost Ring Finder Ed Cropski

  • from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from a woman  last night looking for my help to recover a gold cross that was lost on the beach yesterday by her son while throwing a football. The necklace had broken which they had found but the sentimental cross pendant had disappeared into the sand.
I arrived at the location at sunrise this morning to meet with her so she could show me the area they felt it was lost in and I began my grid search with my metal detector. After about a half hour and a targets I got a nice solid low tone and vdi number from my machine and scooped the sand and seen the cross in my scoop! I called her over as she was collecting shells to show her my find. She was so happy and said it had made her morning explaining that the cross was given to her son during confirmation and they were now celebrating his graduation and he was really upset about the loss.

Another happy customer!

Recovery #141

Beachcomber, Cahoon Hollow, Wellfleet, Massachusetts – Armenian gold cross lost, found and returned

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

The day before Kyle’s graduation he was playing volleyball and sporting his graduation gift of a white gold necklace and an Armenian cross. A quick jump, a spiked ball and on the way down to the sand the net caught the cross which then was in a free-fall into the sand. Kyle found the necklace and he and several others were not so fortunate in finding the cross. He left the beach in the dark and did not sleep well as his wish was to wear the cross on the virtual graduation. That was not to happen.

Just before the ceremony Kyle’s found a link to TheRingFinders.com and called Luke. Luke was in heavy traffic leaving the Cape for the day and would not be able to search until the next day. As TheRingFinders often do, he called me to take on the search. I did.

I would wait until the pay to park was lifted and there were less people on the beach. My plan partially worked. I did not have to pay to park, but I did wait on the volleyball game reach a point were the players would take a 10 minute break. They knew of the loss and some had some were part of the previous day’s search. I thanked the players and started my search. It only took about 6 minutes before I had the cross and left to meet Kyle for the return. As I left everyone said how amazed they were and to pass congratulations on to Kyle.

A drive that should take 10 minutes took almost an hour due to the Cape Visitors trying to find a meal or to leave the Cape. Just bad timing. We made the meeting, passed the co-dos, took photos, told a few stories, and parted or ways with smiles on everyone’s face. Kyle’s smile was the biggest of all.
