A man lost his wedding ring in Rochester, but found it again in Africa.
Back in March, 59-year-old Bob Mack was with a group of church volunteers packing a cargo container with donated medical equipment and supplies bound for new hospital in Guinea.
Hours after the 20-foot long container was loaded onto a tractor-trailer and began its long journey east, Mack realized his white gold ring wasn't on his finger.
Weeks passed as the container traveled to Africa by boat. Then Mack got good news on Easter Sunday. The container arrived safely, and someone there had found his ring.
For now Mack's ring is staying in Guinea, where a doctor is holding it for him. A group from Mack's church is expected to go there this fall and will bring it back with them.
