A woman from Lincoln, who found an engagement ring in her handbag after a night out, has launched a world-wide appeal to find the mystery owner.
Sophie Reynolds, 23, found the antique gold and pearl band on 12 January after celebrating her friend's birthday the night before.
She says she remembers consoling a tearful blonde woman in a takeaway shop at around 4.30am who gave her the ring after revealing she had been cheated on by her fiancé.
Sophie posted the appeal on Facebook and Twitter and has had her appeal retweeted tens of thousands of times around the world.
She did not manage to get the woman's name or number after speaking to her inside the Charcoal Grill takeaway in Lincoln.
The next evening she found the ring in her bag - which she believes may be a family heirloom.
Sophie says she has been trying to trace the woman since:
"All I know is that she had blonde hair, was wearing a black-and-red tartan top and spoke with a Yorkshire accent.
"I have looked on the club's website at pictures and haven’t found her, I don’t know if she was from the area, she might have been visiting."

Thousands of visitors from across the country have been at the first day of the Lincoln Christmas Market. The bad weather caused a few problems today, but it didn't deter the crowds looking to sample local food produce, as well as bag that all-important festive bargain.
Lincoln is expecting winds of up to 75mph this morning - and one of the stalls has just blown over. The council said yesterday that stall holders have been told to "batten down the hatches". Around three hundred thousand people are expected to visit the market over the next few days.
