Evergreen Park Community High School says Debra Thiessen’s name is inscribed on the inside of the band. She graduated in 1977 – but the school can’t reach her.

A man found the ring in 2000 in Lake Tawakoni, near the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Another Texas man caught wind of the story and reached out to the school next summer.

If you should happen to know Debra Thiessen, let us know.
