“It’s very important that whoever finds this ring to please, please turn it back in,” said Leticia Deleon.

A mother is pleading with the public to help her find her daughters graduation ring. She says the last time her daughter wore it was at Doctors Regional on Alameda street.

“I was admitted to the hospital after a concussion and my daughter waited for me in the waiting room,” said Deleon. “She was messing with the ring she was nervous and everything and she finally got sleepy and she put it in her back pocket.”

That was a month ago. Now, with graduation around the corner DeLeon says she’d like nothing more than to see her daughter walk the stage with her graduation ring.

“Monday, she had a photoshoot and I reminded her to bring her graduation ring for pictures and that’s when I found out that she had lost it,” said Deleon. “I asked her why she didn’t tell me and she said I was nervous and she didn’t want to upset me or anything.”

According to Deleon, her daughter lost the ring almost a month ago somewhere between the ER waiting room and the parking lot.

Deleon says she’s looked everywhere from her daughters’ room to the lost and found at Doctor’s Regional.

“I don’t know where else to look I’ve posted it on so many websites I’ve posted it with the hopes that maybe somebody found it and doesn’t know what to do with it,” said Deleon.

Now she’s filing a police report and checking pawn shops around town, but she just hopes if it’s already been found, someone will do the right thing and turn it in to the police department

“She’s maintained her grades and she deserves this ring,” said Deleon.
