ROY -- A father and son are looking to reunite a 1989 Roy High School graduate with his school ring.

A little more than a year ago, 16-year-old Cody Ryan traded a baseball card for the ring, which he thought was gold. His father, Mark, collects gold, so he took it home to surprise him.

"He told me I could have it for my collection but when I looked closely at it, I saw that it was gold in color, but it was a high school ring," Mark Ryan said.

"Cody got busy and started looking up names in the phone book, and we called people in the Roy area with the same last name to see if we could find him."

They didn't locate the owner that way, so they searched the Roy High School archives. Still no luck.

"Then we got on the Internet and tried searching for him there," Ryan said. "We just didn't come up with any luck at all."

The ring is inscribed with the name Bobby Johnson inside the band. Ryan said there's also an indication that Johnson could have played on the high school football team.

"I'm sure this ring has some meaning to him," Ryan said. "We would love to find him or find someone who knows how to contact him, so we can get his ring back to him."

Ryan said if anyone has any information, they can reach him at 801-603-4301.
