MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle woman is trying to find the rightful owner of a diamond ring she found floating in the Gulf of Mexico.
Heather Tate tells the Northwest Florida Daily News that she spotted a jeweler's box sealed in a plastic bag while she was paddle boarding Sunday off Miramar Beach.
She says she initially thought the box was a piece of trash in the water. Instead the box contained a treasure.
Tate says she's traced the ring to a local jewelry store and is working with employees to find the person who bought it.
She says she thinks someone who was planning to propose lost the ring while out on the water in a kayak or a personal watercraft.
