ROGERS PARK — A Rogers Park woman is asking for the public's help in a desperate search to locate one of her wedding bands after the ring slipped off Tuesday evening.
Mugsie Pike said she was out running errands between 5 and 7 p.m. Tuesday and rode the "L" between the Morse Red Line stop and Dempster stop in Evanston.
By the time she realized it was gone, Pike said she wasn't sure where in that timeline it had come off.
She suspects the piece was looser than usual because fingers tend to slightly shrink during the winter, and the band may have become entangled in a mitten and come off either while walking around that area or while on the Red or Purple lines.
Pike said the ring is worth a lot to her in sentimental value, so she's offering up a $1,000 reward for anyone who safely returns the band back to her.
It also has a distinct, unique look.
The ring is part of a custom made two-piece set of bands — an engagement ring and a wedding ring — comprised of remnants of jewelry belonging to friends and family, Pike said.
But with recent rain, she said she's worried it may have been swept away for good.
"I'm hoping somebody saw it and picked it up because they realized it was something important, and maybe just aren't sure what to do with it, but didn't want to leave it on the street," Pike said. "
If found, Pike can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-810-6849.
