Hikers help man find ring lost on mountain
A man’s quest to find his wedding ring on a 4,000-foot snow-covered mountain in New Hampshire has been completed by a couple of hikers — and a metal detector.
WMUR-TV reports Bill Giguere, of Massachusetts, recently lost the gold band on Mount Hancock.
Giguere, who had been wearing it for three years, put out a plea to a hiking group for help.
Tom Gately saw the post, but had doubts about finding the ring along the 16-kilometre loop trail Giguere hiked.
Gately and fellow hiker Brendan Cheever set out with a metal detector.
Cheever says that “it beeped and he’s, like, ‘I think I found it,’ and everybody’s, like, ‘What?’ and he just started scratching in the snow. There it was!”
