A recent Citadel graduate will soon be reunited with the ring he lost in Florida last month, thanks to social media.

Tyson Cater, a 2016 Citadel graduate, lost his ring while in Lake Wales, Florida, last month.

The Citadel posted on its Facebook page Wednesday that a vacationer from the United Kingdom found the ring belonging to Cater.  The school wrote that attempts to contact Cater were unsuccessful.

The post was shared more than 200 times and eventually reached Cater's brother.

"It's nice when someone does something like that, instead of keeping it," Tyson Cater said.  "It shows that there's still a lot of good people in the world."

A fellow graduate residing in Florida took possession of the ring and will ship it to Texas, where Cater is currently visiting.
