Diamond ring lost on Park City trail
May 12, 2017
A hiker lost a diamond ring on a trail toward Quinn's Junction in early May and did not immediately realize it was missing, the Park City Police Department said.
Rick Ryan, a police captain, said the department received the report at 1 p.m. on May 6. The woman, who is 63 years old and a Park City resident, lost the ring on a trail in the Park City Heights development.
Ryan said she reached into a pocket for a cellphone while she was hiking and might have lost the ring when she reached for the phone. She did not realize the ring fell off at the time. When she discovered it was missing, she backtracked on the trail looking for the ring, Ryan said.
The ring has a .75-carat diamond and an adjustable gold band. He said the inside of the band is engraved with "TKP 20." Ryan said the ring is estimated to be valued at between $5,000 and $6,000.
Ryan said it is a criminal offense for someone to keep lost property they find.
Anybody with information may contact the Police Department at 615-5500.
