FORT PIERCE, Fla. — A Florida salvage company says they’ve found about $350,000 worth of gold off the coast of Fort Pierce.
The company, Booty Salvage, based in Central Florida, posted pictures of the gold on their Facebook page. Items include necklaces and gold coins.
Eric Schmitt is part of the Fort Pierce Booty Salvage treasure diving crew.
“It was a lot of emotion. The first was excitement followed by a lot of almost crying,” Schmitt told WPTV5.
