OCEAN CITY, N.J. (1010 WINS/AP) – A recent father-daughter fishing trip down the Jersey Shore turned into an incredible and successful case of lost and found.

A New Jersey man now has his wallet back – 19 years after it fell out of his pocket while he was riding a personal watercraft.

A Pennsylvania man was out fishing with his 13-year-old daughter when they snagged the wallet in Corsons Inlet in Ocean City.

Richard Santo, of Newtown Square, Pa., and his daughter Katie, found ID and credit cards inside.

Santo says his daughter searched an Internet phonebook and located an address.

Santo has a summer home a few doors down from Chuck Lindberg.

Lindberg says he didn’t offer Santo a reward because there was nothing of value inside. But he says “there’s definitely some good karma coming back.”

Lindberg says he’s keeping some of the IDs just because of his hair style.
