Rings lost in snow at Connecticut highway rest stop returned to Boston couple

BRANFORD, Conn. (AP) — Two rings lost in the snow at a Connecticut highway rest stop nearly month ago have been found and returned thanks to the sharp eyes of a state trooper.

Kim Reggiannini tells WFSB-TV she and her husband, Peter, were driving on Interstate 95 on a snowy night Feb. 17 when they stopped at the Branford rest stop.

Kim took off her wedding and engagement rings and put them in her lap while she applied lotion to her hands. They apparently fell off her lap and the Boston couple didn’t realize they were gone until 90 minutes later.

State police Sgt. Robert Derry combed through surveillance video and saw someone pick them up. He traced that person’s license plate, and they turned them over.

The Reggianninis picked up the rings on Wednesday.
