Renovations Uncover Long-Lost Ring

A Kentucky woman has been reunited with the engagement ring she lost 15 years ago thanks to the keen eye of construction workers working on her home renovation project. WSAZ's Chad Hedrick reports.

(NBC News) — It has been 15 years since Lisa Phelps lost her engagement ring.

“We couldn’t find it,” she said. “We looked everywhere. We ran wire coat hangers along the sides of the vanity, checked the trap in the sink, and just finally accepted that it was gone.”

Fast forward to today, that ring is back on her finger after it was found by construction crews working on a remodel at Lisa’s Boyd County, Kentucky home.

“Somehow the ring had fallen behind the vanity and we don’t know how because it was up against the wall,” she explains.
