BOCA RATON, Fla., July 19 (UPI) — A Florida woman connected with a stranger in California to help recover her husband’s missing wedding ring.
Joanna Horowitz shared a photo of the ring, which her husband lost while they were vacationing in California, along with a story of how a man used his metal detector to help them get it back.
“My husband lost his wedding ring a week ago in California. The other night he was really upset about it,” she wrote. “Out of desperation, I went on Craigslist LA to ‘lost and found’ and found a guy who advertises his metal detecting services.”
Horowitz helped direct the man to the ring’s possible location and returned the ring within 12 hours in an act which she claimed “will restore your faith in humanity.”
“He mailed it back to me today and is only asking for a reward as a form of payment,” she wrote. “It truly is a miracle that I found this honest man and that he found Chad’s ring!”
Horowitz also thanked a man named Mario from Muscle Beach, who she said unsuccessfully searched for the ring when she called before turning to Craigslist.
