    I want to thank the people of Gruene, New Braunfels, and the community of Comal County for the outpouring of help, concern, good wishes, and positive attitude toward the recover of this little token of love.

    My wife Jenny's white gold 5 diamond (1 larger diamond, surrounded by 4 slighter smaller diamonds) on the band Wedding Engagement ring was lost on the morning of October 02, 2011. Her and her girlfriends stayed at the Gruene Homestead Inn, next to Tavern on the Gruene. She had her ring with her Saturday night, but the ring went missing the Sunday morning when they walked around Gruene before departing to return to Austin. So we are thinking that it is most likely somewhere around the town of Gruene, along the streets and by the shops, by Gruene Hall, near The Grist Mill Restaurant, anywhere really All of the shop owners know us and know of our story and our helping to get the word out.

    After the initial search on October 2, we returned and searched again on October 3 and conducted a full day search with a metal detector. Then again on October 8 during the 5th Annual Gruene Music & Wine Fest festival, but nothing has surfaced yet. I did happen to find a lone cubic zirconia diamond in a crack in the asphalt in the parking lot where the festival was being held. So that's how hard we are looking!

    If you find this little ring, please please contact me and I will make sure that you take your due REWARD for your good deed.
