A homeless man panhandling in Pontiac, Mich., received more than just some spare change last week.
Michael Secaur was standing on a corner Feb. 21 when a woman pulled up in her car and gave him some change. When Secaur looked closer at the change in his hand, he noticed he was also holding a gold ring with diamonds.
Secaur initially considered taking the ring to a pawnshop but changed his mind.
"I figured whoever owned it -- it looks like it's part of a wedding set," Secaur told The Oakland Press. "It's probably worth more to the woman who had it, so I'm going to try and get it back to her."
He asked David Coleman, the owner of Centerstage Warming Shelter, a shelter he frequents, advice about what to do next.
"I was surprised he didn't pawn it, because first and foremost Mike is a homeless and needy person," Coleman told AOL News. "But he has a good heart. He asked my advice, and the only thing I could think to do was to call the media."
Coleman is keeping the ring in the shelter's safe deposit box for now. He said that since The Oakland Press first reported the story, one prospective owner has called. "One woman called thinking it might be her grandmother's ring," Coleman said. "But it wasn't anywhere close to fitting the description."
A former kitchen manager, Secaur has been living on the streets of Pontiac for two years.
Coleman would love to see him get a job offer. So far, he has had one call about a possible job for Secaur as a dishwasher in a kitchen restaurant.
"I think something good will develop from it," Coleman said. "It just hasn't happened yet."
