A California couple is asking the public for help locating a woman who the husband accidentally sold a box to without realizing his wife's $22,000 wedding ring was inside.
KTLA reports Racquel Cloutier put her wedding ring in the wooden watch box for safekeeping while she was in a hospital delivering her fifth child.
Her husband Eric didn't realize she had done so, and sold the box with the ring inside at a neighborhood garage sale for $10.
The Cloutiers are hoping the woman who bought the box will see the story on the news and return it.
“It’s my wedding ring and its a one of a kind,” Cloutier told KTLA. “It’s such a bad feeling whenever you lose something, especially when it means so much to you.”
