NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Police have found a couple who lost their engagement ring in Times Square.
The New York Police Department says a man, later identified as John, was proposing to his girlfriend, Daniella, just before midnight Friday when he dropped the ring and it fell about 8 feet down a utility grate.
The couple asked police for help, but emergency service officers could not immediately find the sparkler. Eventually, they found it. But the would-be bride and groom left without leaving their names or contact information.
Police released surveillance images of the couple and asked the public to help reunite them with the ring. It worked and the couple was located. The NYPD initially said the couple had left the country and they would work to get the ring back to them.
On Sunday they released an image showing the happily engaged couple with the ring with the message: "Thank you, Twitter. Case closed!"
