The wife of Backstreet Boys member Brian Littrell was the victim of theft when her six-carat canary diamond engagement ring, worth more than $100,000, was stolen from a hotel near Atlanta.

According to his wife, her jewelry disappeared from a bedside table in their hotel room. The couple left the room and everything was gone when they returned 15 minutes later.

But there may be a break in the case, according to Littrell.

"We were going to leave, but we've come to find out there was a person not to be named, who's on the housekeeping staff, had one ring that we were looking for and one of the earrings. We just want the ring back," he said.

Littrell's wife said she's devastated because he designed both her engagement ring and wedding band. They're considering offering a reward in the case.
