SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A San Francisco Bay Area man who lost a ring while surfing in the ocean 35 years ago had it returned to him by a treasure hunter.

Robert Fowler was 17 when he was surfing off a Marin County beach and his gold high school class ring slipped off his finger.

He didn’t think he’d see the ring again.

Larry Feurzeig finds a few hundred dollars in coins each year, along with plenty of beer cans.

Two weeks ago, he found the ring - which bore the initials of Fowler and a Marin County high school - engraved inside. Through alumni records, Feurzeig found Fowler and emailed him to meet Wednesday in front of a San Francisco grocery store. Fowler got his ring back. Feurzeig got a bottle of champagne.
