Bruce Hardin found the ring early Friday morning.
"I saw something shining in the street, so I picked it up," said Hardin.
The silver Marine Corp ring has no markings or engravings - which presents a challenge for Hardin.
"Somebody fought for our country and I feel like they should get it back," said Hardin. "It's just the right thing to do."
Eyewitness News is not revealing the specific location where the ring was located in hopes that the true owner will have that detail. If you have information on the owner of the ring, contact the Eyewitness Newsroom at 713-663-4600.
