EXCLUSIVE: A man in New Jersey returned to his home after Superstorm Sandy only to find it had vanished -- and not from the storm. At issue is who tore it down and why?
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.
"I never saw anything like this in my life," Maria said. "And when I took my wife here a week later, she was crying her eyes out in the street."
Maria said he immediately started making phone calls.
