New York City police are hunting an unlucky suitor who dropped an engagement ring down a Times Square grating while proposing to his fiancee.

"WANTED for dropping his fiancée's ring", they wrote on Twitter.

They've now found them, allowing Daniella to finally slip that lovely ring on her finger.

According to police, the pair had already left the USA, but soon realized that the NYPD had found their missing ring.

The man was proposing to his girlfriend just after midnight Friday when he fumbled the ring and dropped it 8 feet down a utility grate. "Help us find them?"

But a happy ending was coming for what the department called its "almost engaged" couple. 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". Even before the ring made it home, the woman had said yes.
