A News 2 Facebook follower helped solved the mystery of a missing high school class ring that got lost in the sand in Panama City Beach over the weekend.
The ring belonged to Felicha Carroll, a member of Greenbrier High School’s graduating class of 2006.
It was discovered by a 24-year-old woman from Tuscumbia, Alabama, while she was burying a friend in the sand over the Labor Day weekend.
“As I was digging deeper and deeper, I saw something shiny and I picked it up and it was a class ring,” Cobb said. “It had the school name and everything on it so I was able to track her easier to get her ring back to her,” she said.
Cobb asked News 2 to share the photo on our Facebook page, which proved successful.
One of Felicha’s friends saw the post and sent it along to Carroll, knowing she lost her ring over the weekend.
“I figured nobody would have turned it in, they would keep it, pawn it,” said Carroll.
Carroll and Cobb were reconnected via Skype where they exchanged their stories of how the ring was lost and later found.
The two women have made plans to return the ring to Greenbrier from Tuscumbia.
