THE "BOOTY SALVAGE CREW" RECOVERED THE CENTERPIECE OF THIS "PYX" ONE THOUSAND FEET OFF FORT PIERCE.

REPORTER JOHN DZENTIS HAS THEIR STORY. Return to index of stories...


TREASURE FOUND OFF FL COAST-PKG


S/U: For hundreds of years, it's been on the ocean floor. These treasure hunters have found gold coins, necklaces, but they've never found anything quite like this."

"It's almost too much to be honest with you."

BROUGHT TO TEARS…BY THE FIND OF HIS LIFE.

"I'm still on top of the wave, I haven't come down yet."

RICK SCHMITT HAS BEEN TREASURE HUNTING SINCE HE WAS FOURTEEN. THIS WAS THE MOMENT HE'S ALWAYS DREAMED OF.

HIS FAMILY WAS OFF THE COAST OF FORT PIERCE HUNTING FOR SPANISH TREASURE…IT WAS HIS SON…WHO SPOTTED A GLINT OF GOLD….

IT WAS THE MISSING PIECE…

FROM A MYSTERY ARTIFACT FOUND IN 1989.

"I pretty much knew what it was right away, nothing's ever looked like that before. It could only be the missing piece."

FOR DECADES, ARCHAEOLOGISTS THOUGHT THE ARTIFACT WAS SOME SORT OF PICTURE FRAME FROM THE LATE 1600'S.

NOW COMPLETE, IT'S BELIEVED TO BE A PYX, A HOLY VESSEL USED BY A HIGH RANKING CATHOLIC CHURCH OFFICIAL TO CARRY THE EUCHARIST.

IT MIGHT BE THE BIGGEST SCORE OF THEIR TREASURE HUNTING CAREER,

BUT THE SCHMITT FAMILY ISN'T READY TO QUIT.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

TRACKING MORE STORM CHANCES

The onshore flow continued on Thursday, with scattered downpours and storms developing in coastal areas and then moving inland. This activity may try to push back into the Urban Corridor this evening as temps fall into the 80s. The rain and storms will slowly end overnight, with lows in the mid to upper 70s.

Storm chances will continue into Friday, but with some changes. Winds will shift to the south and east, ending the morning rainfall threat. However, scattered PM showers and storms will likely be a good bet in the Urban Corridor, with activity diminishing in the evening. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

More moisture works into the area for the weekend, increasing the rain and storm chances. The activity still looks to be scattered, but coverage will likely be greater than during the work week. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low 90s.

The extra moisture looks to linger into early next week, keeping PM storm chances elevated. As we move into Tuesday and Wednesday, some slightly drier air will arrive, reducing the coverage of the PM activity.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We are still keeping a close eye on a tropical system east of the Lesser Antilles. This system looks stronger than Wednesday and the National Hurricane Center said it is nearing tropical depression status.

The hurricane center has given this system a 70% chance of development, but it could become a Tropical Depression later tonight.

All the forecast guidance has this system still impacting the Lesser and Greater Antilles, before moving northwest toward the Bahamas. It does not look like this system will impact Florida.

Elsewhere, no major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...

DISTRACTIONS ARE EASY ENOUGH TO COME BY.

ESPECIALLY ON THE ROAD.

BUT THIS IS ONE DISTRACTION -- THAT COULD COST YOU.

00:56:56 "You know is illegal? Really? Didn't know that." Acebedo

02:28:02 "I was kinda confused, I said what did I do wrong? Omolade Kolawole

SOMEONE ELSE WHO DIDN'T KNOW- CAPE CORAL DRIVER OMOLADE KOLAWOLE.

02:27:31 "I had my earphones on so I wasn't worried about anything, I wasn't speeding or anything like that."

IRONICALLY- IN HIS EFFORTS TO AVOID BREAKING THE LAW- HE DID THE OPPOSITE.

02:28:09 "The law is even if you have hands free device you couldn't have them in both of your ears."

NBC2 SET OUT TO FIND OUT IF OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ARE WRITING MORE OF THESE TICKETS AND WHY.

00:52:32 "With the prevalence of smartphones with the commonality of mobile devices on-the-go a lot of people forget to take their headphones off when they're in their car." Det. Sgt. Dana Coston, CCPD

SINCE 2011- THE CAPE CORAL POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS WRITTEN 50 CITATIONS FOR THE OFFENSE -

THREE LESS THAN THE LEE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE.

FORT MYERS POLICE HAS WRITTEN 33 CITATIONS.

IT MAY NOT SEEM LIKE A LOT BUT POLICE SAY THEY ARE WORKING TO GET AHEAD OF THE TREND.

00:55:29 "Having your tunes when you're on the road is great, but we need you to be paying attention to the road, when you're piloting a 2000 pound missile on the road." Coston

AND WHILE SOME WHO ADMIT TO BREAKING THE LAW BEFORE AREN'T THRILLED BY THE ENFORCEMENT EFFORTS.

00:58:50 "I"d be pissed be off, you wouldn't like it? I wouldn't like it"

THEY AGREE IT MAKES SENSE.

00:58:55 " But I do understand"

AS FOR OMOLADE KOLAWOLE-

02:30:30 "I still have my earpiece, but I only use one at a time now."

HE UNDERSTANDS THAT RATHER THAN TURN A DEAF EAR.

02:30:03 "I feel they should educate the public, especially when you have this kind of thing happening all the time."

DRIVERS NEED ACTIVE, LISTENING ONES.
