PIERCETON – Kevin Mosher has been collecting objects found with his metal detector for years, and almost all of the items are on display in his basement near Ridinger Lake.
But the wedding band he found in August in Center Lake is one he’d prefer to return to its owner.
Mosher, 60, said he waded waist-deep into the water near the Center Lake beach when he found the ring.
He said there are initials engraved on the inside and a date of 1951. Mosher is willing to turn over the ring if somebody can correctly provide him with the initials.
Mosher has about eight encased displays in his basement of items he’s found with his metal detector and shelves of other knick-knacks. One entire case is devoted to items found in Lake Wawasee, he said.
This is not the first time he’s found a wedding ring. He found a ring in Pike Lake and was able to return it to the family.
Being able to reconnect lost items makes the metal detecting hobby worthwhile, he said.
Anyone who can identify the initials is asked to call Mosher at (260) 229-8812.
