Missing ring has high value

A woman golfing at the Colorado Golf Club in Parker on July 9 forgot to remove her wedding ring before heading out onto the course. Once she and her family began their round she noticed she was still wearing it and clipped it to her golf bag with a carabineer clip.

After the family returned to the clubhouse, they had a valet bring the car around and load up the clubs in the trunk. The following day she remembered she had put her ring, valued at $30,000, on the bag, and when she went to retrieve it she noticed it was not there and the carabineer was fastened in a different way. The case is closed pending any further investigation that warrants its opening.
