NYPD Finds 'Wanted' Man: Clumsy Proposer Who Lost Engagement Ring

The couple looking for the ring

John Drennan and his fiance Daniella, who live two hours north of London, were caught on surveillance cameras frantically searching for the ring in Times Square on Friday night after it slipped off her finger and fell through a grate. The couple left but the police managed to retrieve the ring.

The man frantically lay on the ground and peered into the grate while his partner looked on in concern, but they were unable to retrieve the ring.

After finding the ring, New York City police are returning it to the couple in England.

The couple asked police for help, and emergency service officers tried unsuccessfully to locate the sparkler.

On Twitter and Facebook Sunday, the NYPD issued an all-hands bulletin.

The NYPD has released pictures of the couple and the ring in the hope of reuniting them with the jewellery.

"We are so happy, we can't believe it", the young couple said after discovering their lost engagement ring had been found.




She crouches down next to him, trying to help but they are unsuccessful.

NY police found the ring and put out an all points Twitter bulletin Saturday, looking for the victims of the matrimonial miscue.

"We would like to thank everyone who shared this story!" the NYPD News social channel tweeted.

Daniella said yes straight away but they both knew the ring wasn't the right size. A spokesperson declined to identify the couple or offer details about how the ring was found.

But a happy ending was coming for what the department called its "almost engaged" couple.

"Thank you, Twitter. Case closed!" the NYPD posted Sunday afternoon, along with a photo of the happy couple.

Anthony said yes, but the ring was too big for her finger.
