Hometown Hero: Owen Jeffries

POCA, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Owen Jeffries is a pretty typical 6-year-old kid. He loves riding his bike, playing with his dog, and car shows. "I was at a car show and I was kicking rocks near Magic Island."

In fact, it was in that spot where Owen struck gold, literally. "It was full of diamonds on top and it had gold on the bottom."

Owen's talking about an engagement ring. A woman lost it while at the Do-Wop Car Show in Charleston. It's a prized possession, Owen just happened to stumble upon. "I thought the ring was a rock and I just kicked it and it made a noise and I just picked it up and gave it to my mom."

Almost as soon as he found the ring, Owen and his mom tracked down the owner, Leslie Thomas, all from a post on the car shows Facebook page. "It was nice that we could get it back to her so fast. I knew she would be heartbroken without it," says Susan Jeffries, Owen's proud mother. "She just missed it a lot," Owen adds.

Returning what was lost and found. Owen says, "really good. I feel really good."

That's what makes Owen this week's WSAZ Hometown Hero.
