A man lost his wedding ring while traversing the Tongariro Crossing.

Losing your wedding ring while honeymooning overseas is definitely not the greatest way to start any marriage.

With this in mind, Bay of Plenty Police hope the power of social media will help them to reunite an English tourist with his wedding ring which he lost while traversing the Tongariro Crossing in December.

Posting to Facebook on Sunday, police say the newlywed man took off his ring to apply sunscreen in the shelter at the start of the Tongariro Crossing on Sunday, December 20.

Bay of Plenty Police hope the power of social media will help them to reunite an English tourist with his wedding ring.

"In the excitement of embarking on the iconic walk he forgot to put it back on. He retraced his steps but no luck," police say.

The man has since filed a lost property report for the ring which is described as a plain white gold wedding band.

If anyone has found the wedding ring they are being asked to contact Taupo Police on 07-378 6060 and quote reference 151221/3891.

We have a slightly unusual appeal to help an English tourist whose honeymoon in NZ didn’t get off to the best start....
