EL PASO, Texas, June 19 (UPI) -- A California couple said they are trying to find the rightful owner of a wedding ring found wedged in the backseat of a car that originated in Texas.

Steve and Shannon Callahan of Sacramento said they were digging between the seats of their 2004 Pontiac Grand Am for a missing cellphone when they discovered the 5-chip diamond, gold wedding ring between the seats, the El Paso (Texas) Times reported Tuesday.

The couple said they believe the car originated more than 1,000 miles away, in El Paso, and they have thus far been unable to identify whoever owned the car before they bought it used from Sunshine Motors.

"We just want to make sure it gets to its rightful owner," Shannon Callahan said. "We know the car was in a pretty bad accident so there is always the possibility that the owner didn't survive. But there may be grandchildren or children who might want it. Either way, the ring belongs to somebody and not to us."

"I would really like to return the ring," she said. "It's not like it's just a lost set of keys. It's a token of somebody's love, it's a milestone in a couple's life."
