For a second time in two weeks, Coquitlam RCMP are turning to the public in the hopes of returning someone's missing ring.
Today (Nov. 15), Mounties have unveiled a yellow gold ring that was returned to its local station in the Austin Heights neighbourhood, and are asking its rightful owner to claim their lost treasure.
According to a release, spokesperson Cpl. Alexa Hodgins explained the ring was found in Rolley Lake Provincial Park in Mission "on a trail near the water" in early September.
It was then brought by a good Samaritan to the Ridgeway Community Police Station (1059 Ridgeway Ave.).
However, efforts to return to the ring have come up short, prompting police to go public.
"The rightful owner will be required to provide ownership by providing police with details of an inscription as well as any other identifying marks," added Hodgins.
In photos sent to the Tri-City News, the ring appears to have one larger diamond in the middle and is border by at least six smaller diamonds — three on either side.
Second ring found in potted plant
Meanwhile, Coquitlam RCMP are still looking for the owner of an "L"-shaped ring that was brought to the main detachment in June.
In a separate statement on Nov. 1, Hodgins said the ring was found while a local resident was digging a new potted plant they purchased at Langley's Walmart Supercentre on 66th Avenue.
"Due to the unique design and features of the ring, we believe that it may hold sentimental value to the owner," explained Hodgins.
"It's possible that the owner was not aware where they lost the ring given the circumstance in which it was found. We hope that appealing to the public will help reunite the ring to its rightful owner."
It's described as:
- Yellow gold
- Encrusted with diamonds in the letter "L"
- Unique features
To claim the ring, Hodgins said the owner must provide ownership to investigators, including details of inscription and other identifying marks.
