An $800,000 diamond ring lost in Paris turned up at an unexpected place

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin.

Imagine losing a diamond ring worth more than $800,000. That's what happened to a woman in Paris. The woman was staying at the famed Ritz Hotel and left her ring on the nightstand in her room. When she returned from a morning out, the ring was gone. Authorities were alerted, but after a search by hotel and security staff, the ring was found in a vacuum cleaner bag. Finders keepers clearly didn't apply in this case.
