Woman appeals for help after ruby ring flies away in balloon

Vikki Rutter (inset top) popped the £120 present (inset bottom) inside the giant balloon (left is an identical balloon) on Saturday afternoon as a 21st birthday gift for her cousin, Ava Wesson. But as she turned her back to grab a weight to tie down the 36-inch inflatable, it drifted into her utility room, through an open door and into the garden outside her home in Edenbridge, Kent. 'I just turned my back for 30 seconds and when I came back it had vanished,' said Mrs Rutter, 47. I just cannot understand it - there was no breeze - how it got round the corner into the utility room and out of the back door and squeezed along the side of the house without snagging on the fence or the place where I put the bins out. I do not understand.' The loss of the ring, wrapped in tissue paper inside the balloon filled with gold confetti, sparked a wide-scale search, with family and friends putting out an appeal and scouring the countryside for several miles.
