Wicker Park wedding ring owner found, returned to Instacart driver

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Good news! The wedding ring found on the sidewalk outside a Wicker Park home has been returned to its rightful owner.

Amy Kirscher and Jonah Newman spread the word on social media about the dark gray metal wedding band inscribed with "I love you" and the date of the wedding, trying to find its owner.

Newman tweeted Thursday it was returned to its owner, an Instacart delivery driver who had been delivering groceries last Sunday.

The Striblings are grateful the ring was returned in time to celebrate their 7th wedding anniversary on January 31.

Brantley Stribling said he didn't even feel it slip off his finger. Once he realized it was gone, he didn't think he'd ever see it again. That was until his wife's friend told her about the social media post.

"It was like 1 o'clock in the morning and when I went to his Twitter page, I like, screamed," said Aston Stribling, his wife. "And he was asleep so, he woke up in a panic like, what? And I'm like, 'they found the ring!'"

The couple thanked everyone who helped spread the word to reunite the ring with the hand it belongs on. The Striblings will celebrate their 7th wedding anniversary on January 31.
