Madison Heights -

A metro Detroit woman is pleading for the public's help after losing her engagement ring at a movie theater.

Nicole Carter went to the AMC Star John R Theater with her fiance Sunday afternoon.

Carter said before the movie, she put the ring in her pocket to wash her hands.

She discovered it was missing after the movie when she returned to her car.

"It was a beautiful ring," said Carter. "It was my engagement ring and it was hard to get so now it's like he has to scuffle up some money for a new one."

Carter is offering a $1,000 reward for the return of her engagement ring. She is asking anyone with information to call the theater.
