Missing wedding ring found among frozen pipes

An Illinois couple wrote a letter saying "Hooray for ice storms" after what they found while trying to protect their frozen pipes -- a diamond and sapphire wedding band.

Tara Catogge and her husband Ian found it while trying to clear the pipes in their kitchen sink last week. The couple called the previous homeowners right away.

"I asked him if Louise ever lost a diamond ring. He said, 'Oh my god, yes.' He said she did and I asked if it has sapphires. He just kept gasping almost," Tara Catogge recalled.

The couple had searched for the ring for years, assuming it was lost at a family gathering.

They are ecstatic it has finally been found. In fact, it will arrive at their Colorado home just in time for their 40th anniversary.
