Girl finds lost wedding ring in sea


An 11-year-old girl found a wedding ring while swimming at sea, and was able to track down the owner. Imogen Tite was swimming at Woolacombe Beach, Devon in the UK, during a family holiday when she discovered the item of jewellery and initially suspected that it belonged to her father Andrew.

He told the Daily Mail newspaper: “I instinctiv­ely looked down to check my wedding finger, but I take mine off [before going] in the seas, as the cold water can make your fingers shrink.”

After closely inspecting the ring, the pair discovered that it was engraved with ‘James and Rebecca, 25.10.03’ and posted a message on social media in the hope of finding the owner.

It turned out that James Mizrahi was looking for the ring after he had lost it two days previously while bodyboardi­ng with his wife Rebecca.

Andrew said: “A lady on Facebook happened to see both my found status and Rebecca’s lost post in a local Devon-based group and matched us together.”

The ring was subsequent­ly returned to its owner.
