Aug. 8 (UPI) -- A man who found a class ring while using a metal detector on a New York State beach was able to use social media to reunite the lost item with its owner.

Craig "Tiny" Bordeaux said he was using his metal detector Tuesday at Haviland Cove Beach in Glens Falls when he found the Glens Falls High School ring buried in the sand.


Bordeaux posted photos of the ring, which bore the name Kyle and the year 2017, to Facebook, where they were shared more than 2,000 times in only 12 hours.

The social media post was able to help Bordeaux return the ring to its owner, who said it had been lost at the beach about a year earlier.
