MO:12 Carat Diamond Ring Lost and Found in 8 Tons of garbage    **This package/segment contains third party material. Unless otherwise noted, this material may only be used within this package/segment.

CLARKSON VALLEY, MO (KTVI) It was the case of missing wedding rings, two rings lost in 8 tons of trash.    One of them with a 12 and a half carat diamond and the Squitieri's of Clarkson Valley had to get dirty, stinky and lucky to get them back.    It started in the Squitieri family kitchen Sunday afternoon.  Sunday night her husband was cleaning up around the sink and early Monday morning the Meridian Waste truck picked up the garbage.    Carla Squitieri`s rings were mixed in with the garbage of more than 900 customers.    After a few prayers and phone calls the Squitieri`s realized her rings were in the garbage.  Minutes before they hit the landfill, Meridian diverted their truck to a transfer station and the dig was on.    Joe Evans of Meridian Waste ended up finding the rings.    The rings are insured, but it's the sentimental value that had the Squitieri's digging through rotted food and dirty diapers.  Meridian workers know all about that and say they'd do this for anybody.
