NJ Man's Home Disappears After Sandy

Posted: Updated:
TOMS RIVER, N.J. -

So many people lost so much during Hurricane Sandy, but one Toms River, New Jersey man says he absolutely has nothing left - not even the rubble from his home.

Nick Maria tells FOX he couldn't find his house after the storm.

The home, which served as a summer home for Maria, once stood on 5th Avenue in Ortley Beach.

A few weeks ago, Maria says the home suddenly vanished.

Two week after Sandy, residents were allowed to return to gather their belongings. But when Maria arrived, his home, and everything inside, was gone

All that was left was a plot of land.

"I never saw anything like this in my life. And when I took my wife here a week later, she was crying her eyes out in the street," Maria said.

Maria says he immediately started making phone calls, but the township didn't have much information.

A picture taken by a neighbor of the home after the storm showed that while it had shifted off of its foundation, it was still standing.
