A woman who found a gold and silver bracelet at a popular Long Island beach has finally tracked down the owner 16 years later.

The incident occurred in the summer of 1994 when Suzan Abruzzi, 56, brought her three children to the family's regular spot: Robert Moses State Park, Field 5.

As she watched her children play in the sand, she noticed the silver-and-gold ID bracelet. The name Dan Konz was engraved on the front, while the date "1958" was on the back along with a symbol which identified the owner as a member of the Jones Beach Patrol.

Abruzzi said she was immediately struck by the name Dan Konz, because when she was in high school, she had worked at a Friendly's restaurant in Huntington for a man by that name.

"Honestly, I thought the odds of him being the same person were one in a million," Abruzzi told PIX 11 News.

Immediately after finding the bracelet, Abruzzi jumped into action.and tracked down houses in Huntington where Konz had lived. However, each person she encountered said they didn't know who he was.

As a result, Abruzzi said she put the bracelet into her jewelry box and forgot about it -- until this past spring -- when she again noticed the piece of jewelry..

Abruzzi then decided to utilize Google and Facebook in order to track down Konz. Despite her good efforts, she said the multiple searches she conducted yielded nothing.

However, everything changed several weeks later, when she began chatting with a customer at Petsmart store in Huntington, who mentioned her husband Ed was a long time lifeguard.

The 56-year-old immediately got excited and told the woman about the bracelet. Abruzzi contacted the Jones Beach lifeguard alumni networks, who then began searching for Konz. Through research, they discovered Konz had been a lifeguard at Jones Beach from 1958 to 1963.

Finally after much research, the alumni network tracked down Konz. On July 15, Konz, now 70-years-old got a call from Abruzzi at his house in Woodridge, Ill He had relocated to Chicago years ago to run a business selling promotional merchandise.

Konz said the bracelet cost him $25 bucks back in 1958. He claimed to have lost the bracelet a month after he had gotten it. Konz -- who battled throat cancer and speaks through a voice prosthesis -- said he is ecstatic the bracelet is back in his possession.

"He can't wait to get it back," said Abruzzi. "He said those days were some of the best of his life."

Abruzzi said she plans to send Konz the bracelet soon and hopes he'll wear it again.

"I feel amazing," said Abruzzi. "It's even more astounding it's going back to someone from my past."
