BOLTON, N.Y. (AP) -- An Oklahoma man has been reunited with the wedding ring he dropped in a New York lake nearly 40 years ago.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports that Jane and Jim Flynn honeymooned on Lake George in the Adirondacks after getting married in 1960. They returned to the upstate lake for summer vacations every year until 1976, when they bought property in Bolton, on the lake's western shore.

Soon afterward, Jim Flynn lost his wedding ring in the lake.

A woman from Seattle who vacations every August on property next door to the Flynns' spotted the gold ring underwater along the shore. It had the date "2-6-60" engraved inside.

She gave it to a year-round resident who learned it belonged to Jim Flynn, who now lives in Tulsa.
