UPDATE: 6:16 p.m. – We want you to check your Halloween candy bucket, but not because of a recall, rather because of a missing wedding ring.

Many say a wedding ring is the greatest symbol of love. A symbol that’s extra special to Catherine Tucker.

“It was my husband’s wedding ring and he died three years ago on the 26th of October, so we just had his three year anniversary,” Tucker said.

She said she wears his ring every day.

“This is one of the few meaningful things that I still have of his,” she said.

She lives on the corner of Walnut and Sycamore, in the Tree Streets neighborhood in Holt and Monday night, while handing out candy on Halloween, she believes it fell off into someone’s bag.

“Trick or treaters would come up and I would just, I was trying to be generous, I would give them handfuls of candy,” Tucker said. “And then I went back into the house and shortly after that I realized it was gone.”

Since that moment, Catherine hasn’t stopped searching for it.

“We immediately looked through the bowl of candy we still had and it wasn’t in there.”

She’s looked outside in her yard, all through her house, and tonight she’s asking you to help her too.

“I’m asking them to look through their kids bags if they trick or treated in this area of Holt,” Tucker said. “It’s a white gold ring, it’s a men’s wedding ring, it doesn’t have any outstanding characteristics it’s smooth, there’s no writing on it or anything, it’s not monetarily valuable, but it’s very value to me and so I really hope that people just take a couple of minutes to do that.”

Tucker also said if someone has a metal detector she could use to scan her yard that could help, too.

“I would pay them… maybe sweep this area or go through the house,” she said. “I’ve never lost it before and so maybe it fell off in the house but I’ve looked through the whole house and I’ve tried looking in the yard but I think a metal detector would do a really good job.”

HOLT, MI (WLNS) – Many can argue that a wedding ring is the greatest symbol of love.

It slides on the left ring finger, traditionally known as the only finger with a vein that connects to the heart.

But what if that connection disappears?

“I said oh my gosh my ring is gone and so we immediately looked through the bowl of candy that we still had and it wasn’t in there, and I thought: “ok is there anything I can actually do,” Catherine Tucker said. “We came out with a flash light and looked out here, but I thought well I’ll just post on Facebook because maybe someone who went trick or treating here, maybe they found it tonight and they don’t have any idea whose ring this is.”

Catherine tucker lost her husband three years ago. She wears his wedding ring on her finger every day and she thinks while handing out candy on Halloween on Monday, she lost the wedding ring he once wore.

“I’m asking them to look through their kids bags if they trick or treated in this area of Holt and just look for…It’s a white gold ring. It’s a men’s wedding ring,” Tucker said. “It doesn’t have any outstanding characteristics it’s smooth, there’s no writing on it or anything, it’s not monetarily valuable, but it’s very value to me and so I really hope that people just take a couple of minutes to do that.”
