FULL INTERVIEW: Phil and Ressa Raign emotionally recall the significance Phil's ring has in their family.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Plano man needs your help finding his class ring from West Point.

Phil Raign was in Houston Monday with his daughter.

They were visiting M.D. Anderson to discuss treatments for his daughter, Ressa Raign's, breast cancer.

But, he says as soon as they arrived, he realized his ring was missing.

HELP FIND IT! The family is emotional about the loss of the ring they say signifies all of Phil's military experience.

He believes he lost it at M.D. Anderson or at the Arby's in Madisonville where they stopped on the way into town.

"The ring has a lot of emotional memories associated with it, primarily it signifies all of my military experience," Phil said.

"It's got a lot of significance to not only him, but to me as well, seeing it on his hand all my life," Resa recalled.

Phil actually lost his ring back in the 60s, but a family friend found it and returned it.

He says he is hopeful it will be found again.

When all seems lost, hold on to your hope.
