A Maine man who lost his high school class ring 27 years ago while swimming in a quarry found it right where he thought it was all along.
The owner of the Granite Hill quarry in Hallowell is draining it to restart mining.
When Jason Cottle saw a picture in the Kennebec Journal in Augusta of the draining, he decided to go look for his ring.
The 45-year-old carpenter from Gardiner found it Thursday on a ledge that would have been 35 feet under the waterline — right where he and his friends used to swim.
He also found other jewelry, clothing, keys, four pairs of glasses, unexploded blasting caps, $3 in change and a safe with a hole cut in the side.
Cottle says he also found the diving mask he lost when he went looking for the ring back in 1983.
