Lost Ring Returned After 50 Years

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - A class ring from 1959 found its way home last Friday -- after missing for almost 50 years.

Nathan Garcia, a D.P. Morris Elementary School fourth grader, spotted the shiny treasure while biking near his school in Mansfield, Tex., KDAF reports.

"[At] first I didn't want to return it," Garcia told the news source, "and I kept it for a little bit and I thought what the owner would feel. So, I took it back and I returned it."

Garcia gave the ring to the school's staff, who, with the help of two high school students, helped track down the owner. The ring was engraved with the initials MEN.
