Woman, lost class ring reunited with help of metal detector

in Apolitical/Top Headlines by

A woman has been reunited with her class ring thanks to a man who found it while using a metal detector and then tracked her down.

Glenda Sullivan tells the News Herald of Panama City that Phillip Mazaruk recently found her at her job as circulation call center manager for the newspaper. He told her he’d found her class ring, buried about 10 inches underground at Deer Point Lake.

Sullivan says she’s as giddy as a 16-year-old at the thought of having her ring back. She says she remembers frequenting the lake with her children and assumes it slipped off her finger during one of those visits.

Mazaruk says he and a co-worker at Coastal Helicopters tracked Sullivan with a first name, middle initial, high school and class year.
