TERRACE PARK, OH (FOX19) - A Terrace Park woman is hoping her wedding ring gets returned after it accidentally slipped off her finger and into the Halloween basket of a Trick-or-Treater.

Elizabeth Olson lost her diamond anniversary ring during Saturday night's Halloween festivities.

"I had it enlarged, and then when it got cold you know your fingers get smaller, and I noticed that it was spinning around more than it had been before, but I didn't realize that it would slip off," said Olson. "So as I was throwing candy in pillow cases and buckets, I threw my ring too."

So now, Olson suspects that a little Trick-or-Treater is now in the possession of a three diamond vintage ring.

"She didn't tell me till (Sunday)," said her husband, Stefan Olson. "But when she told me I just really just felt sorry for her."

Stefan Olson did what any husband would do - he called everyone he knew looking for the ring.

"We're thinking that normally after Halloween, the kids empty their bags and buckets and sort it out and hopefully some little kid has a stack with a diamond ring on it," said Stefan Olson.

Elizabeth, meanwhile, remains stressed about finding the ring, but hasn't lost her sense of humor.

"It's not like I'm the first or last person that it has happened to," she said. "I just hope that it finds its way back"
