NYPD Finds Couple Who Lost Engagement Ring During Botched Proposal

NYPD Finds Couple Who Lost Engagement Ring During Botched Proposal

The global manhunt for a couple that got engaged in New York City - only to lose their diamond ring moments after the public proposal when it fell down a sidewalk grate in Times Square - has come to an end.

All was not lost - police found the ring at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

Initial efforts to find the ring failed, and the couple left the scene, police said.

On Twitter and Facebook Sunday, the NYPD issued an all-hands bulletin. "We are making arrangements for them to get the ring back", NYPD Sergeant Jessica McRorie told ABC News.

Daniella said yes straight away but they both knew the ring wasn't the right size. "So so happy to have ring back!"

The NYPD blasted out the tale on social media hoping to track down the couple to give them the good news, and on Sunday Drennan, already back in the United Kingdom, reached out to the Crimestoppers hotline.

The NYPD are seeking the public's help in finding the pair in the hope of performing a Christmas miracle by reuniting them with their ring.

Good news came earlier today, with reports the couple had been located.

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.

Even NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill chimed in.

The NYPD had been looking for the couple since Saturday, after getting the ring out of the grate.

With the help of dozens of passers-by they managed to get the grate off and search underneath for at least two hours. But by then the couple was nowhere to be found.
