TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - It started as any normal day for Beatrice Kornman.
"My grandchildren were decorating the backyard for me," she says.
She went outside to check on them and found something remarkable.
"The sun was shining that day and I saw something gleaming in the ground," she says. "I bent over and I picked up a ring in the gravel. And I thought that's a woman's wedding band."
The small silver ring has the date "02-15-67" written on the inside making it more than 40-years-old. It also has initials, that only the rightful owner will know.
Beatrice knew she had to do something, but she just moved into the brand new home a few weeks ago.
"I'm not online and I don't know what to do so I called Channel 9 because it's a friendly channel," she says
She thinks it might belong to someone who works for the company where her rocks came from.
"I know I've lost things and I've wished I could get them back," she says. "I think we all have."
Beatrice is almost 90-years-old and admits that her eyesight isn't what it used to be. To find such a tiny ring among all these rocks, well, she thinks it was meant to happen.
"I don't want anything in return, except their pleasure in getting it back," she says.
And we're hoping to find the long-lost owner of this tiny silver ring.
We did reach out to the company that built the home, but they are at a loss too. They can't think of anyone working there who lost a ring.
