Police looking for couple after engagement ring recovered from utility grate

Police managed to find the ring after the couple gave up searching for

Be it fate, or a stroke of good luck, Daniella Anthony and John Drennan are soon to be reunited with their precious piece of jewellery. "We are making arrangements for them to get the ring back", NYPD Sergeant Jessica McRorie told ABC News.

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

It wasn't a complete disaster, however, as the woman said yes before the ring fell through the grate and plummeted eight feet below their feet.

And after, the New York Police Department was on a mission to not only retrieve the ring but find the couple, with little to go on.

Footage released by the New York Police Department (NYPD) shows the pair by what looks like a subway exit.

The NYPD also shared a photo - the best they have - of the couple as well as another picture of the ring. Drennan explained that he had put a lot of thought into the proposal and had carried the ring in his pocket for two days. "Bouncing once... bouncing twice and then it was gone", Drennan said.

NYPD said one of its officers saw the scene unfold, rescued the ring, cleaned it up and would like to return it to the couple.

A couple whose wedding proposal went horribly wrong will get their happy ending after all, CBS New York reports.

Police successfully tracked them own after spreading the word on social media.
