5 years, 2 states: Ring left at Olive Garden finds owner

Posted: Updated:

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - An Olive Garden manager's quest to find the owner of a wedding ring left in a restaurant bathroom spanned about five years and two states before finally coming to an end this week.

The Virginian-Pilot reports Anne Kenny read a story in Wednesday's paper about the ring, which she had inherited from her mother-in-law and since lost.

Restaurant manager Shana Wheat-Taylor had gotten in touch with the Norfolk-based newspaper recently after rediscovering the ring while unpacking at her new Kentucky home.

Wheat-Taylor was the manager of a Chesapeake Olive Garden when an employee found the simple, inscribed gold band. No one claimed it, but Wheat-Taylor held on to it even after transferring to another Olive Garden.

Wheat-Taylor spoke to Kenny on Wednesday and is mailing the ring back to her.
