A lost wedding ring has been returned to its owner after a year at sea! Mickey Walsh was vacationing near the beach with his family on Aug. 13, 2016, when a wave knocked the symbolism of his marriage right off his finger.

"I was playing in the waves and I noticed it was off my hand," Walsh said. "I always take it off when I go into the ocean. For whatever reason, I didn't do it that time. I pretty much thought it was a lost cause."

It took a year for the ocean's current to carry the ring north, and last Thursday, 11-year-old Daniel Barr spotted the ring on the beach. The discovery spawned an all-out search for the owner and Mickey's wife saw the ring from a post on Facebook! Mickey was thrilled to have his wedding ring back just in time for his 9th anniversary.
