EDISTO BEACH, G.A. (WNCT) – A Tennessee couple is thanking a complete stranger for finding their lost engagement ring.
The couple, Robby and Kelly, got engaged on July 4th while vacationing on Edisto Beach in Georgia. However, just two days later, Kelly lost the ring while playing football.
The couple spotted Stephen Rickerson on the beach with a metal detector. However, by the end of their vacation, the ring hadn’t been spotted.
Before leaving to head back to Tennessee, the couple exchanged contact information with Rickerson, who returned to Edisto Beach nearly a month later with his metal detector.
On August 6th, Rickerson found what he had been looking for.
“I was looking for certain signal in my metal detector. When I dug it out the dirt I was so excited,” he said.
When he called the couple, they were thrilled. They drove six hours to meet Rickerson to pick up the ring.
“You wouldn’t believe how much you’ve changed our lives just on that,” the couple said.
