NYPD Wants To Return Engagement Ring Someone Dropped In Times Square Sidewalk Grate During Proposal

"We still haven't found our "almost engaged" couple WANTED for dropping their ring in Times Square". Not to take them downtown, but to bring them the ring they say officers fished out of the grate and cleaned up.

The NYPD later put a call out on social media asking for help locating the couple because officers had luckily managed to retrieve the engagement ring. On Sunday, the NYPD said after finding the couple, whose names according to the NYPD appear to be John and Daniella, "We're making arrangements to get them their ring back". Police have shared pictures of the footage from security cameras in the hope they will help them make sure the ring gets back to its rightful owners.

"Thank you, Twitter", the department tweeted.

The department later posted a photo of the ring in question.

In extremely unlucky circumstances, the ring slipped off Daniella's finger as they were walking over a subway grate in Times Square later that night. There is also a request along with the video -"help us find them". "This is why I love my city, people choose the weirdest places to propose and yet it still wonderful & romantic. Bouncing once... bouncing twice and then it was gone", Mr Drennan said. "In the end, we had no choice but to walk away and try to enjoy the rest of our weekend".

"We don't use Twitter - we had absolutely no idea this was going on".
