Missing Ring near Charlotte Lake

A friend of mine lost his wedding ring near Charlotte Lake this past weekend. If anyone finds it, I can put you into contact with him. Here is his note:

Pretty much a long shot, but if anyone is on the trail right now and happens to stop by Charlotte Lake (~1/2 mile west of the JMT near Kearsarge Pass trail junction), I lost a man's wedding ring there this past Sunday. It's titanium (silvery in color), so no great dollar value, but of course there's sentimental value.
I camped at the west end of the lake just east of two large Knaack brand brown/tan metal tool boxes that are presumably used by horse packers as food storage boxes. Note that these boxes are not the NPS supplied bear locker which is further east. From where I was, I could see the two tool boxes out of the corner of my eye, so I was close, just east of them.
I've marked the approximate position on a topo map (see link). Note that the position of the trail is wrong on the map. The trail ran below my position, not above it. If you zoom in on the map, you should be able to see where I've sketched in the corrected position of the trail.
Yep, major long shot I realize, but if anyone is out that way, look for it on top of a rock just east of those two tool boxes.
Much obliged,
