SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A Southern California couple desperately needs your help to find a $32,000 engagement ring left behind last Friday in a women's bathroom at Mineta San Jose International Airport.

The woman had just landed in Terminal B when she took her ring off to wash her hands. She hurried off to a waiting Uber car and left it behind.

When the bride-to-be realized her mistake, she raced back to the bathroom, but the ring was gone.

"It had to be a woman that took it," she said. "And that's extra heartbreaking because that's someone that knew the value of it and still not want to turn it in."

The ring is insured, but she says the original holds lots of sentimental value.

Anyone with information should contact San Jose police at 408-277-5400.
