New Jersey State Police announced Tuesday morning that Soldiers Ryan Koehler and Vincent Ferdinandi of Point Pleasant Station were the ones who found a Golden Retriever, named ‘Chunk’, swimming in Barnegat Bay.

The Brick Police shared a photo of Chunk last week indicating he had been missing since June 6 at F-cove and has been sighted several times, including most recently on June 15 in the woods and swampy area behind Mantoloking Road, but had not been seen long enough to return home.

All is well with Chunk who was found by Soldiers Koehler and Ferdiandi, who encountered him in a ship on the water on Tuesday morning, as they spotted the dog near the Mantaloking Bridge.

Chunk was brought ashore and then back home.

“Chunk, who is three, has been missing for over two weeks. Needless to say, he was delighted to be reunited with his grateful owners,” the NJSP said in a statement.
