    Default Lost ring comes full circle 20 years later

    Lost ring comes full circle 20 years later
    POSTED: 11:59 a.m. EST, February 20, 2007
    Story Highlights
    Class ring missing for more than 20 years found in cave off the coast of Africa
    Ring belongs to a former undercover officer for the CIA
    Diver who found ring e-mailed a Notre Dame writer about it
    The writer happened to interview someone who knew the ring's owner



    SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio (AP) -- A college ring lost more than 20 years ago by a former undercover officer for the CIA has been found in an underwater cave off the coast of Africa.

    Steve Ruic, a writer on staff at Notre Dame College, received an e-mail about two weeks ago from a professional diver from Germany. Wilfried Thiesen wrote that he had found a class ring bearing the college's name while diving off Mauritius.

    The ring was engraved with the year '76. The ring was missing the thin portion on the underside that ordinarily carries its owner's name.

    Ruic publicized the discovery in both an e-mail to college staff and a newsletter to alumni, but no one came forward to claim it.

    Then, while interviewing a member of the class of 1976 for an unrelated alumni magazine story, Ruic asked Dr. Maryellen Amato Stratmann if she'd ever been to Mauritius.

    "I couldn't believe it," Ruic said. "She said, 'No, but Clare Cavoli Lopez has."'

    Lopez, a 1976 Notre Dame College graduate and former CIA undercover officer, was stationed at Port Louis, Mauritius, from 1983 to 1985. During a dive, the ring slipped from her finger.

    Ruic sent Thiesen's address to Lopez. She has exchanged e-mails with Thiesen, she said Monday, and they're arranging for him to mail it.

    I'm sure it awas a recreational dive. I doubt she would be stupid enough to have something on her that could identify her if it was a business dive.

    If they knew that you knew the answer....well, that would be most unfortunate, Mr. Craig, sir. Most unfortunate, indeed.
