Shopper loses engagement ring at Old Navy



SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A holiday shopper left the Old Navy store in South Portland last Thursday wondering if she would ever see her engagement ring again.

The woman lost her ring in the Old Navy dressing room last week and store staffers helped her look for it, but no one could find it.

The woman left her name and phone number with a store manager in hope that they would come across it, but with the chaotic holiday shopping season, the contact information was lost.

A cleaning person discovered the ring the next day, but they had no way to find her. Store manager Allison Turk said they used social media to get the message out that the ring had been found. A friend of the ring owner saw one of the posts and notified her.
