A woman thought she lost her engagement ring after attending an NFL game in Denver — but luckily, she ended up getting it back.

Lupe Leyva attended her first football game at a stadium on Sunday when she watched the Denver Broncos take on the Los Angeles Chargers, according to a Facebook post. And although the home team ended up winning, Leyva left the game “heartbroken.”

“I NEED HELP!!” the Colorado resident wrote in a social media post following the Jan. 8 game.

“I had my gloves on, took them off heading to the bathroom & off went my engagement ring,” she wrote.

Although she admitted that the situation felt like a “lost cause,” she refused to give up — and encouraged people to share her post.

“Maybe if I have a little bit of hope, maybe a miracle is possible,” Leyva wrote. “Maybe just maybe a good soul will find it & turn it in.”

And fortunately, just like the Broncos, she ended the regular football season with a win.

“UPDATE- FOUND!” she wrote in an update on the post, thanking everyone who had helped get the word out.

“I was feeling awful & It felt like a long shot but the amount of support I felt from everyone helped keep me hopeful,” added Leyva.

“There are good, kind people out there and I’m forever thankful for the person who found it & turned it in,” she wrote.

Although Leyva still has no idea who helped make the reunion possible, she’ll be forever grateful. “We have soooo many thanks to give,” she wrote.
