MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- With a little help from CBS 58, it wasn't long before a missing class ring was reunited with its owner. 

Thursday, March 11, Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport shared a photo of a Metropolitan High School class ring found in a men's restroom. 

CBS 58 shared the story with our viewers and someone recognized it! The airport says the man belongs to a man named Lionel; one of his friend's saw the Facebook post and let him know. Lionel even commented on our post, "... that's actually my ring." 

Lionel picked up the ring Friday morning. He told airport officials the ring is special to him because he's had it for over 20 years and it was a gift from his mother.  

We're happy to report, the ring is back with its rightful owner.
