The Martin County Sheriff’s Dive Team coordinated, by Detective Sergeant Tommy Neild, consists of four certified Master Divers: Det. Steve Franklin, Det. Joe Obermeyer, D/S Justin Lundstedt, and D/S Angelo Minella.
The primary mission of the Dive Team is underwater evidence recovery and crime scene processing. Our divers are trained to perform these tasks in water with little to no visibility. In addition to working closely with the other units of this agency, the Dive Team has been requested to assist numerous other local, state and federal agencies. In the past, the Dive Team has recovered human remains, stolen vehicles, vessels, airboats, cell phones, and firearms.
