Family finds 'pot of gold' on ocean floor Published: September 4, 2013

A Sanford family has found a great deal of gold treasure on the ocean floor off the coast of Fort Pierce over the holiday weekend, according to an Orlando Fox affiliate.

The site reports they found treasure worth an estimated half a million dollars on Sunday.

"We definitely knew it was shipwreck material, for sure," said Captain Eric Schmitt. "I can't describe anything other than putting my head down in the sand and holding it in my hand and just wanted to sit there and hold it forever."
