The world joined together to reunite Joe with his ring, and it happened! Facebook user Kimberely Norman saw the post, shared it and to her surprise one of her friends responded “Soooo this my grandfathers ring. Thank you so much for sharing this!” Soon after Walsh was in touch with Jade Langely (Joe’s granddaughter) discovering quickly that he was only a few hours away, in Noosa, Queensland.
Finn’s Beach Club joined in the search and offered whomever could connect Joe with his ring would be rewarded with 1 night in a 5 bedroom villa at Semara Luxury Villa Resort, free entry to Finn’s Beach Club (for up to 10 friends) and Rp4million in food & beverage credit to spend at the club.

Joe Langley had lost the ring 9 months prior while swimming at Finn’s Beach Club.
Once reunited with his ring Langley said “I still can’t believe that 9 months later Roxy goes in for a swim in the same spot, gets swept by the same rip onto the same rocks and finds my ring. This morning we met Roxy and her husband and daughter for breakfast and she presented me with a beautifully polished ring. That’s the end of a great story, which has now been seen by more than 2 million people from all over the world”
