A high school senior has found an engagement ring more than two years after it was lost at a New Jersey beach.
Tony Silva, of Point Pleasant, says his fiancée lost the ring on the beach at Asbury Park.
The Asbury Park Press reports 18-year-old Brianne Sinks discovered the 1.21-carat gold ring during a volunteer beach cleanup on Saturday.
On Wednesday, Sinks returned the ring to Silva at Bentley Diamond where it was first purchased. Sinks and her mother found the store by contacting the ring's manufacturing company.
Sinks, an Ocean Township High School senior, says that after she found the ring she was determined to return it.
Silva said he had spent hours trying to find the ring and now feels "so grateful" to have it back.
