North Yorkshire Police have launched an appeal to locate the owners of a rather distinctive silver ring. 

One social media user joked “I believe the owner did in fact report to a police station to report the item lost but were unable to see over the top of the of the reception desk”

Another said “Drop it in a volcano, You cannot reunite this with it’s rightful owner for the sake of the Shire!” 

Members of the public have joked that (NorthYork) Shire Police has become the chosen ones after the ring fell into the hands of detectives.

The Met Police based in Kingston offered to assist stating “We can assist! We think (one of) the original owners was a MR Sméagol. He used to live near Gladden Fields near the River Anduin. Hope that helps.”

Cops in york have been trying to locate the owner of the very distinctive silver ring and had appealed for you the public to help. 

The ring was recovered with a number of items which had been stolen in a house burglary in York February 2019. 

Despite officers best efforts they had been unable to trace the owner so took their appeal to social media.

Detective Constable Pete Wilson, from York Investigation Hub said: “Unfortunately we haven’t been able to find the owner of the ring and return it to them. As it is such a distinctive piece of jewellery, we’re hoping that someone will recognise the markings and be able to tell us who it rightfully belongs to, as I’m sure someone, somewhere is missing it.”

Very quickly and with all jokes aside the owner of the ring was quickly located the social media post went a little viral.

“We have been amazed at how far the story has travelled and have had lots of enquiries from members of the public who believe the ring could be theirs.

“Including five hobbits (two didn’t want it, they’d had enough of it and are chilling in the west) an elf and a couple of wizards.

“We are delighted to let you know that the ring has now been reunited with its rightful owner – Mike Taylor from York. Thank you again for your support with the appeal and for giving us a happy ending.”
