A mystery has surfaced on a beach in Greater Vancouver.

A decades-old wedding ring has been found by a self-proclaimed “wedding ring seeker” with a history of treasure hunting, but now he’s looking for something else: the owner.

Armed with a metal detector and a pair of galoshes, Chris Turner spends hours and hours searching for lost items on the British Columbia coastline.

Earlier this week he found something buried in about 45 centimeters of mud and gravel at White Rock. What he found was a gold wedding ring, and he thinks he’s already met the woman who lost it.

“He’s been waiting for maybe seven to 10 years to be found,” Turner told CTV News.

Of the owner, he said a woman approached him all those years ago, telling him she had lost her ring.

Turner and a friend searched the beach where they were first approached for years. Around that time, he found all kinds of rings, he said.

One even made headlines over Thanksgiving weekend in 2020, as it belonged to actor Jon Cryer.

“I started my search and in about four minutes – three to four minutes – I found her ring. I was shocked,” he told CTV News in an interview at the time.

But what he didn’t find was the ring belonging to the woman who approached him about ten years ago. Until now, maybe.

“This one stuck in my mind because she said it was a plain gold wedding band with an inscription, and this one is a plain gold wedding band with an inscription,” he said. he declares.

The inscription “1957” is a clue to a mystery that Turner said he would like to help solve, even after all these years.

“The ocean is mysterious. I believe it gives you what it wants to give you, when it wants to give you.”

Now he’s looking for that woman he met on the beach, hoping to return the little golden circle.
