EL PASO, Texas (AP) — The new California owners of a 2004 car from Texas have found a more than 50-year-old wedding ring lodged in a seat.
The El Paso Times reported Tuesday that Steve and Shannon Callahan of Sacramento, Calif., want to find the ring's owner.
Shannon Callahan says they discovered the 15-karat gold ring last week while seeking her husband's cellphone. The ring, with several diamond chips, is inscribed with the year 1961.
The Callahans figure the ring owner is from El Paso. A label on the Grand Am says Crawford Auto Plaza in El Paso.
Callahan, using the vehicle ID number, determined the vehicle the couple bought in January originally was sold in March 2004 in El Paso.
The Callahans, who've been married 11 years, still haven't found their cellphone.
