Capitol Police searching for ring’s owner

Capitol Police have a wedding ring they’d like to return to its rightful owner. But they don’t want to say a lot, for fear of making it harder to find the correct owner.

“We don’t think that providing a lot of specific information about the particulars of the ring would be a good idea in terms of sorting out the true owner,” Mike O’Connell, the Missouri Public Safety department’s spokesman, said in an e-mail Thursday afternoon.

A Capitol Police officer contacted the News Tribune on Thursday morning, asking if the newspaper’s records for Cole County marriage licenses might help them find the owner of the ring, which had been turned in to them.

The officer didn’t mention the specific place where the ring was found. Nor did he say if it was a man’s or woman’s ring. It contains three initials and a date in 2005.

In addition to contacting the newspaper, O’Connell said: “Capitol Police are also attempting to use other means to track down the ring’s owner at this time.”

Capitol Police can be called at 573-522-2222.
