Couple Dropped Engagement Ring At Times Square. NYPD To The Rescue

New York City police on Sunday located a couple who dropped an engagement ring down a utility grate during what was supposed to be a romantic proposal in Times Square on Friday.

"WANTED for dropping his fiancée's ring in @TimesSquareNYC!" the NYPD wrote on Twitter. They left without filing a police report or providing their contact information.

It doesn't show the moment the man pops the question but we do see him getting down on one knee in an attempt to find the ring.

A couple, identified by the New York Police Department as John and Daniella, were reunited with their engagement ring with the help of police and social media on December 2018.

NY police are trying to find the ring's owners.

And promised to share a few beers with the police officers, and, John said, they'd get a shout-out at the couple's wedding.

By then, Drennan and Anthony had returned to England and heard from a friend about the NYPD's social media campaign to find them. And when they ended up in Times Square, the ring fell off.

The NYPD was finally able to recover the ring Saturday morning, the Daily News reported.

'So so happy to have ring back!

In a following tweet, the NYPD shared a picture of the ring all clean and shiny.

NYPD Police Commissioner James P. O'Neill confirmed that the couple had been in touch.

They also posted a photo of the ring itself. "Help us find them?"
