Pa. teen with metal detector finds 1962 class ring

LEMONT, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania teenager with a metal detector has stumbled across a 1962 high school class ring and returned it to its owner.

The Centre Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/15c0xOU ) 19-year-old Robert Nese says he was searching the ground behind Lemont Elementary School when he made the discovery recently. He found the gold State College Area High School ring buried 8 inches below the grass, with the initials DLT inside the band.

He tracked down a yearbook and found two people with matching initials. On his second try, he found that Donna Tressler had lost the ring playing softball 52 years ago.

She says she had searched the grounds for the ring for years and is floored by Nese’s honesty and hard work at finding her.
