Sewer workers look for owner of found wedding ring

Associated Press

KUNA, Idaho — Sewage workers in southwestern Idaho are hoping to reunite a diamond wedding ring with its owner.

Carey Knight and Travis Fleming are wastewater operators for the city of Kuna and say they came across the ring last week while performing routine maintenance in a housing subdivision. Knight says he thought the piece of jewelry was fake at first glance, but a cleaning proved it was real.

KBOI-TV reports Knight and Fleming want to return the ring to its owner, but they have only a small lead.

Fleming said he remembers receiving a phone call a couple of years ago from a woman who reported that she had lost a ring. Fleming said he and some co-workers searched but could not find it.
