EDWARDSVILLE, IL (KSDK/NBC) - It's a lost and found story that covers many miles and three decades.

Edwardsville resident Jim Seubert owns a cleaning and restoration company in south St. Louis. He's helped victims of the Joplin tornado, Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy, so he knows a little about what it's like to lose prized possessions.

In Seubert's case, he recovered a special ring given to him by his father even though it took a while.

In 1983, Seubert was a student at Bloomington North High School in Indiana where he was manager of the varsity basketball team. He lost his graduation ring on Daytona Beach during a family vacation.

"And we looked and looked all over the beach," said Seubert.

He figured the ring was gone for good. Until he got a phone call several weeks ago from a woman in New Jersey.
