“Dear PoPville,

This is a long shot, but what could it hurt? On Friday my husband lost his wedding band somewhere. He works downtown D.C. near 11th & F, and commuted home on metro getting off at the Columbia Heights metro stop and walking home to upper 14th. I’m not positive that the ring slipped off his finger, but I thought it couldn’t hurt to put out at PSA. He has a very simple gold mens band, and as most people can attest, it’s not worth a ton monetarily, but has significant personal importance. Unfortunately, its not engraved with anything to make it stand out, but if someone spotted it or happened to find it, could you please contact us?”

Please email [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP if we get a miracle.

“Hello all,

Anyway anyone has come this ring or this bracelet:

– on 16th St between Blagden and Columbia Rd NW
– on Columbia Rd between 16th and 18th, or
– on 18th between Columbia and L St NW?

The ring was given to my by my aunt and godmother three weeks before she died last April. It was her 21st wedding anniversary ring from her husband.
The bracelet was the first gift I ever received from my spouse.

Both have EXTREME sentimental value. I am hoping for some good Samaritans out there… I’ve also filed a police report in case someone turns it in there.

Thank you,

“Found this sweet leather bag last night on T street in between Florida and 5th. It’s got about 20 records in it and some documents. Would love to reunite it with its rightful owner. If someone can give a description of the documents or name more of the records (not pictured) – then we can set something up.”

If it’s yours email me at [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch.

“Dear PoPville,

I found a wedding ring on the sidewalk at 18th and R around 8:00 AM this morning. If anyone lost a ring recently, they can contact me through this craigslist post.

“Dear PoPville,

At approximately 8:00 a.m. yesterday March 8, I found a WMATA Smartcard at the intersection of 7th and L Street NW. At 5:15 p.m., I turned it into the WMATA staff at Metro Center with a post-it including the same info. Attached is the card with the registration number on the back. I hope we can help reunite the card with its owner!”

“Dear PoPville,

This morning, while walking my dogs along Maryland Avenue NE between 13th and 14th St NE (and taking my gloves off, putting them back on), I lost my two rings. (Damn cold weather finger shrinkage.) They were my grandmother’s and are incredible precious to me.

I know the likelihood of getting them back is slim, but I’m willing to hold out hope that maybe someone found them. And I’m trying all means available to me to do so.

750 Park Road, NW

“Dear PoPville,

On Tuesday morning, January 9, I found a wallet outside the entrance to the Soldiers’ Home National Cemetery in Petworth. It contained some sensitive documents but no money. It appears to potentially belong to an individual with the initials J.A.R.C., or maybe R.A.R.C. I turned it in to MPD’s 4th District Substation on Park Road NW. Hopefully the owner will be able to claim their wallet.”

Thanks to Anna for passing on from the Brightwood Listserv:

“Fellow Neighbors,

I found a Knoxville College class of 1985 graduation ring on the streets of downtown DC, near the Washington Monument, next to a food truck tire.

The name engraved on the interior says, Cheryl A. Essex.

Through simple research, I found that Cheryl may have been a law enforcement officer, is originally from Washington, DC but currently lives in Maryland.

Since DC is a huge networking society, I decided to reach out on here.

I’m hoping this message can be shared, or tips can be given.

I know what it’s like to lose something valuable.

I want to give her the ring back!

Help me find her!


If you are/know Cheryl please email [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with Emily.
