After one of the story missions there is a forced switch to Trevor, when he wakes up on an island off the southeast coast of Los Santos, in his underwear, with several dead bodies around him.

I was messing around with the boats nearby, dove into the water, and spotted an item lying among some rusted underwater structures. When I swam over the item, nothing happened except the sound effect that plays whenever you pick up something of interest. No collection counter appeared, no money was earned, no other visible changes occurred.

The approximate location of this mysterious item is indicated by the red dot:

Approximate location of the mysterious item.

The map shown here is from the progress tracker on Rockstar's Social Club site. According to that map, there is no trackable item located there. Since nuclear waste isn't tracked on this map, I thought it could be one of those. However, according to this other map, there is nuclear waste located nearby, but not where I found this item. Also I think you need to be in the sub to collect waste... I haven't explored that yet so I'm not sure.

What did I pick up?

  • It could either be a weapon or a bulletproof vest. You already ruled out everything else, such as a briefcase (money), nuclear waste (can only be picked up in a submarine) or submarine parts (can only be picked up as Michael after accepting the "Death at Sea" Stranger mission)

  • Actually, any character can perform the "Death at Sea" mission, but only after it is unlocked by Michael. Commented Nov 15, 2013 at 16:34

I'm gonna recommend you this map is much better and have more collectibles, IGN GTA 5 interactive map. According to the map you may have found a Epsilon Tract or a Hidden Package. Also there's a chance that you may have found just bullets, or maybe a bulletproof vest.

  • Thanks for the excellent map resource. This item in particular turned out to be a bulletproof vest. Commented Nov 27, 2013 at 19:48
