New Hampshire Family Missing Family Heirloom Needs Our Help

Social media, often for good reason, is seen as a negative.
Too much time scrolling, not enough real social interaction, and hiding behind a screen instead of real confrontation cause many to despise social media.
I get it. Ironically, for my profession, I am not a fan either.
That said, sometimes social media creates amazing stories. I mean, the majority of us are all on some kind of social media, whether it be Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, etc.
That is an enormous audience that can actually bring good to the world. Those are the stories I love on social media. The story of the 100-year-old woman who flew a plane on her birthday in the UK. Or the story of a man finding out who his real family was after 70 years of being without one. Stories you would never see if it was not for someone sharing it, re-sharing, and re-sharing again. Like a dog missing from its owner in a small town. One share leads to the next, which leads to SOMEONE knowing where the dog is.
I have a story like that. It's one that may require a lot of help from the people of New York, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.
New to NH, a family was recently moving from NY to the Granite State when their family heirloom and three other diamond rings went missing.
Here is a picture of the distinctive ring.
"It is believed that the jewelry arrived in New Hampshire at the time of a move from out of state, however, several items have recently been discovered missing," according to a Manchester Ink Link article.
The diamond is a white cushion ring with pear-shaped diamond shoulders and a laser inscription of GIA 1136023015 (on the stone), according to Manchester Ink Link.
This is one of those stories where social media can be used for good. We, as the 603 state, need to help this woman and family find their heirloom.
Someone knows something. Let's find it and welcome the family to New Hampshire properly.
