Woman Reunites with the Wedding Ring She Lost in the Desert

Elizabeth Docherty was enjoying a “babymoon” vacation with her husband at one of the largest sand dune deserts in the world, Simpson Desert Dunes in Australia, when she realized that her precious wedding ring was missing.

Docherty was in grief knowing that it would be impossible to find her ring again considering that it was lost in the desert — with a land area of 68,147 square miles.

However, thanks to the power of social media, the impossible suddenly became possible when Docherty’s sister-in-law tagged her with a Facebook post by the ABC Western Queensland showing a photo of her wedding ring.

The caption on the picture of the ring summarized how unbelievable the situation was, saying:

“You’d probably have a greater chance of winning the lotto, wouldn’t you? Somehow, in a more than one hundred and fifty thousand square kilometers of sand, a traveler has discovered a ring, and police are looking for the owner.”

Naturally, Docherty couldn’t believe her good luck and that she would have her wedding ring on her finger again.

“My sister-in-law tagged me in a post on Facebook and called me to have a look at this post that ABC had put up, but I couldn’t believe it,” Docherty said. “I can’t even fathom that someone has found it, let alone handed it in. You walk that sand dune – and you walk 10 meters and you don’t know which way you’ve just come from. It’s huge, I cannot believe someone’s found it in the magnitude of sand that’s there,” she added.

Docherty already contacted the authorities about the ring but she is still waiting for confirmation from the officer in charge of the ring. But even without the official affirmation, Docherty is extremely confident that it is her ring and she can finally have it back and she couldn’t thank social media enough.

“The amount of kindness that it’s taken for people on Facebook to take the time out and share a post on a page, that’s how it found me,” Docherty told the Inside Edition.

Neverland Ranch is Back On The Market: Take A Look Around the Amusement Park

Situated in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Monica, California, the almost 3,000 acre plot of land upon which Neverland Ranch was constructed has recently been placed back on the market. Nowadays, the one-time residence of international pop sensation Michael Jackson is going by a new name: Sycamore Valley Ranch. Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
