There’s a happy ending after the Slidell Police Department helped
an 86-year-old woman locate her wedding ring after she lost it while handing
out candy on Halloween. Sgt. Daniel Seuzeneau says the ring was found in the
woman’s front yard near where she was giving out candy to trick or treaters.
“The family went back to the house to do a thorough search of the house and the yard and sure enough they found the ring in the yard.”
Seuzeneau says the ring slipped off the woman’s hand after she was wearing it on her pinky because it didn’t fit on her ring finger and fell in the grass. He says everyone is relieved it was found at home.
“I was confident that either way somebody would’ve done the right thing and turned the ring in but we couldn’t ask for a better outcome. She’ happy, the family is happy, everyone’s thrilled.”
Seuzeneau says she's the happiest woman he's seen in years. He says her husband passed away years ago and the ring has a lot of sentimental value.
“She was just extremely upset when we were looking for it earlier and now that she found it, I tell you she couldn’t stop smiling.”
