Woman pleads for public's help in finding engagement ring



GREENSBURG, Pa. - A Greensburg woman is asking anyone with information to help her find her missing engagement ring.

Megan Gardiner posted on her Facebook page that her engagement ring was stolen Saturday while she was at work at MB Bride and Modern Tux.

According to Gardiner, she took the ring off to wash her hands, forgot to put it back on and realized she had forgotten it about five minutes later.

Gardiner said when she went back to retrieve her ring, it was gone.

“We searched the entire store several times and it’s nowhere to be found,” Gardiner posted on Facebook. “We even took apart the sink.”

Gardiner said she’s not looking for a “pity party,” she simply wants to find the ring that means so much to her.

“It was a little after we opened on Saturday morning, Megan went to the bathroom and took her ring off while she was washing her hands. After she finished, she walked out of the bathroom and ended up behind the counter when she realized she forgot her ring,” Gardiner’s boss, Jennifer Mason, said. “She went back into the bathroom and realized it was gone.”

Mason said they offered a $100 reward while they were looking throughout the store, but no one found it.

“I’m not sure how someone could live with themselves after taking something that means so much between two people and represents someone so special,” Gardiner wrote. “Maybe with enough help, you all can help me find my ring.”

Gardiner, who is also a substitute teacher, hopes by sharing her story on social media and through news outlets, someone will come forward with information.

“That was her pledge from him, it’s breaking her heart,” Mason said. “She doesn’t want to press charges, she just wants her ring back.”

Anyone with information on Gardiner’s ring is asked to contact her via email at msgardiner913@gmail.com or call the store.
