New York couple reunited with long-lost class ring

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - More than 40 years after a New York man last saw his high school ring, the love token he gave his wife was found on a Greek island.

Stan Ostapiak (oh-STAH'-peeh-ak) graduated from a Manhattan high school in 1962.

At his wedding reception a decade later, the ring in his wife's purse disappeared.

Fast forward to the Greek island of Naxos about a month ago. A Greek young man came across the ring in his late father's belongings. How it got there is a mystery.

The name of the Seward Park High School in New York was engraved inside, leading to the school's alumni association via the Internet.

On Staten Island, Ostapiak and his wife got a phone call. And in early July, the polished ring arrived by mail.
