Hik­ers help man find ring lost on moun­tain

The Peterborough Examiner - - CANADA & WORLD -

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!”
