    Treasure hunter finds Olympian’s missing ring on the beach in Huntington

    A metal detector’s unlikely find on the shores of Huntington Beach helped an Olympic gold medalist locate his lost commemorative ring Wednesday.

    Leon Jones of Buena Park found the Olympic ring earlier this week during one of his usual outings using his metal detector to scan for unique discoveries.

    Jones, who records all his treasure hunts with his GoPro camera and goes by the nickname “Doctor Rings & Things,” saw that the ring is engraved with the name of John Landsteiner, part of the U.S. curling team that made history in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea when it earned the United States’ first curling gold medal.

    Jones contacted Landsteiner, who lives in Duluth, Minn., via FaceTime on Wednesday to notify him of the good news.

    “It means a lot to me,” Landsteiner said. “Tears were shed the night it disappeared.”
