Marni told us her husband lost his climbing over a mud hill at the Warrior Dash.

“He actually found it split seconds before it rolled into the pool of muddy water at the base of the hill!! In the photo it’s actually slightly lodged in the mud hill right below that dude’s tennis shoe and my husband saw it as he looked up to get out of the guy’s way. Now that’s True Love”

Brian told us his is somewhere on the ocean floor:

“I was swimming with the pigs in the Bahamas and one snagged it...it’s now at the bottom of the Caribbean Sea somewhere.”

And, Jamie said she flushed hers down the toilet.

“Took it off to put lotion on. Set it on top of a piece of Kleenex on the back of the toilet. Later, after flushing the toilet, grabbed the “Kleenex” and threw it in the toilet as it was draining. Failed to remember the ring was with the Kleenex. Plunged the toilet, checked drain traps and even got the street department to flush the lines in the sewer/road. Never found.”
