That’s why, when he found a class ring in 2002 while stationed at a naval base in Japan, it set off a more than 15-year search for the owner, which still continues. 

The 1978 women’s-style class ring has the words Cheyenne East High and the initials DPS or DRS. 

“This girl, she might have been a merchant marine, or else she could have been a visiting U.S. Navy ship,” Beaston told KGWN. “I know that this person that lost their ring is probably wishing they had their ring back.”
