The Jersey shore homeowner reached out to us after finding his summer home had vanished along with everything inside. So we called the state looking for answers.
Nick Maria gets emotional when talking about his summer home on 5th Avenue in Ortley Beach -- a home that suddenly vanished a few weeks ago.
"Worse than bizarre. It's very sad," he said. "Very disheartening."
Two weeks after Hurricane Sandy, residents were allowed to return to gather their belongings. But when Maria arrived his home -- and everything in it -- was gone. All that was left was a plot of land.
