Maine Woman Gets Back Her Stolen Ring After 28 Years

ring July 13, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): A Maine woman named Michelle Bilodeau lost her class ring in 1982 which she got back after 28 years. It was stolen from the Edward Little High School class when she was in her junior year there.

A stranger, who found her out on Facebook, returned her the ring on Friday. Angie Foster of Benton informed that she traced the ring at a roller skating rink years back. She even called up Bilodeau’s school to find out the person with initials MMB, which was carved on the inside of the band. The school informed her that Bilodeau matches the description. It took all of 28 years to find her out as Foster could not trace Bilodeau anywhere, earlier.

Bilodeau lost all hopes to find the ring again. But the stranger contacted her after finding her on Facebook and informed her about the ring. In this way, she got back the ring after almost three decades.

It is reported that Angie Foster was employed at the Happy Wheels Skate Center in Winslow, Maine. A cleaning crew found Bilodeau’s ring and handed it over to Angie.

The invention of Facebook has made this nearly impossible job possible. In Bilodeau’s high school, there was only one woman by that name in the 1983 graduating class. So, they met last Friday to give the ring back to its rightful owner.

This is almost like a miracle and she should be thankful to both the social networking site, Facebook and Angie Foster for this.
