Dear White's,

On 1/24/07, I found a girls class ring - year graduated 2006 down at the beach.

As soon as I got home, I drafted up and mailed three letters to schools with this school name on this ring within 200 miles from where I found it. I also looked up the lost/found class ring site on the Internet and listed this ring as being found and how I could be contacted.

I figured the closet school site would probably be the school where this person graduated from. Not too long after, I did get a reply from this school that no one with the three initials that were inside this ring graduated from this school that year????

Time went by and just recently I noticed this ring again in my found ring jar and decided to communicate with these schools again so I mailed off three letters this past Monday to them.

Yesterday I got an email correspondence from an assistant principal of the school located in Las Vegas that no one with those three initials graduated from that school that year.

Today -- I got an email from a lady that told me it is her foster daughter's ring and it was lost 5 and 1/2 years ago in the Ocean -- The assistant principal located a young lady with these 3 initials and notified this girl’s mother that her foster daughters ring has been found and that someone is looking to reunite her with it.

Presently I am waiting to hear from this young lady so I can give her ring back to her.

Another Happy Ending of a lost ring being found with my White's Metal Detector and being returned to its rightful owner.
