Woman Reunited With Wedding Band Lost on Maryland Beach

A Pennsylvania woman vacationing in Maryland has been reunited with her wedding band after losing it on the beach.

Megan Walls says she had only been in Ocean City for a few hours when her diamond wedding band slipped off her finger as she played football with her 7-year-old son. 

Walls says she figured hope was lost Friday afternoon after she frantically dug in the sand with the help of a group of nearly 40 people on the beach. 

Ocean City police Sgt. Dennis Eade recruited Delaware metal detector veteran Barry Betts of Milton, Delaware, whom he'd seen combing the beach, and the two of them recovered her ring Saturday and returned it. 

Walls was on a four-day vacation with her son, Gunnar; her husband, Rodney; her mother and her mother's boyfriend. Walls says she and her future husband starting dating when she was 13.
