Couple finds lost wedding ring on New Year’s Eve

El Paso News

A Florida couple came to El Paso to visit family during Christmas, and lost their wedding band.

Sebastian and Alina Puig were in El Paso visiting Alina’s family.

Alina is training for a marathon, so her husband accompanied her on a run. They left El Paso Fitness on Resler and headed up Redd road then took a right on High Ridge. When they arrived at Alina’s parents house, Sebastian realized he didn’t have his ring. 

The whole family searched for the ring but they didn’t find it before Sebastian and Alina had to head back to Florida.

“Because we are newlyweds, this was one of my first substantial gifts to my husband. It’s symbolic of starting our new life together. It has an engraving on the inside it’s something that’s meaningful for us,” says Alina Puig.

On Monday, KTSM went with Alina’s parents to see the area where they lost it and help search. While we were there, something very unexpected happened. 

Alina’s mom went to check one last time before we parted way’s to ask the gym if anyone had turned in a ring. And much to her surprise, someone had turned in the lost ring!

They immediately called Alina and she was overjoyed.

“Oh wow, I cant believe it! That’s great news, I’m very surprised and glad they decided to turn it!” Alina said to her mom over the phone. 

Alina’s parents are going to send her and Sebastian back the ring, but now it has a great story to go along with it that can be passed on to generations to come.
