Lost Texas A&M Class Ring Bryan College Station, Texas
Received the following e-mail 03-13-2014 Thursday
I got your contact info from the ring finder website. I recently
lost my Aggie ring. I believe it fell off in my neighbors yard, while I was
picking up some trash that had blown into his leaf piles. I’m 99% sure where it
fell. My neighbor gave me permission to look, but I have not been successful.
I’m a veterinary student in college station, tx. What would it cost to have you
drive out here and have a look? Do you know anyone in this area that would be
willing to assist? The ring is very important to me, and had a stone from my
grandmother in it.
Spoke with Kohl on Thursday and he explained the circumstances surrounding the loss of his class ring. Kohl explained the ring was important, but the diamond in his ring had been handed down to him from his grandmother, making it irreplaceable. Kohl and I , worked out some travel expenses issues, and arrangements were made from Sunday morning. I made the 1:45 minute trip out to Kohl’s today meeting him at his residence. Kohl walked the search area with me pointing out the areas he believed he may have lost his ring. The search area was relatively small with several sections of the lawn had exposed dirt surfaces. I knew if the ring was in the remaining grass or leaves it would be a very fast recovery.
These are the difficult stories; the ring was not in the yard. I worked that lawn so hard I may have killed the remaining grass.
Having searched for A&M rings in the past, I knew the school had a lost and found specific to class rings. Even the local area police departments, having checked this for myself, contact the schools when a class ring is turned into them. I directed Kohl to notify the school, and to continue the search for his ring. Kohl advised he would notify me if he finds his missing ring.
