Jan 2nd, 2018
Hot on the heels of my first ring recovery for this summer, I finally managed to track down the owner of a ring I found mid-2017.
It had been returned from Police Found Property, although the fact it had an unusual name engraved inside made me want to try and find the owner myself.
Seven months of lurking around the internet and multiple dead ends later (including one opportunist who had a good go at claiming it!) I finally found them.
They live in Chile and lost it while on holiday, so not surprising the New Zealand Police had no luck.
No photo, but I’ll let the Facebook dialog tell the rest.
This reunion made me realise how many tourists leave their rings behind in NZ, purely because they don’t know who to ask for help.
And so I joined The RingFinders.
