Police are using social media to try to help an English tourist who lost his wedding ring while honeymooning in New Zealand.
"We have a slightly unusual appeal to help an English tourist whose honeymoon in NZ didn't get off to the best start," Bay of Plenty police say in a Facebook post today.
The man took his wedding ring off in a shelter at the start of the Tongariro Crossing to apply sunscreen on December 20 and forgot to put it back on "in the excitement of embarking on the iconic walk".
He went back to look but couldn't find it and has lodged a lost property report.
Taupo police want anyone who has found the plain white gold wedding ring to get in touch with them.
