(WJBK) - NEW YORK (AP) -- Police have found the couple who they say lost their engagement ring in Times Square over the weekend.
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 successfully tracked them own after spreading the word on social media.
"Thank you, Twitter," the department tweeted. "Case closed!"
