The New York Police Department is searching for a couple whose engagement ring fell down a Times Square drain.

But, police later found the ring and are looking to find its owners.

Shortly after proposing in New York City, a man accidentally dropped his fiancé's engagement ring down a NYC grate in Times Square.

NY police are trying to find the ring's owners.

The couple asked police for help, but officers located the ring later when the duo had already left.

NYPD is expected to release more information later Sunday. Police say the couple, who had returned to England, got in touch and the ring will get back to them.

The man was captured on CCTV getting on one knee and proposing to his girlfriend in Times Square.

The NYPD was finally able to recover the ring Saturday morning, the Daily News reported.

In a following tweet, the NYPD shared a picture of the ring all clean and shiny. They also put out their helpline number.

"Wasn't a Twitter user, I am and will be forever grateful to all who have helped me get my ring back!"

Both John and Daniella took to Twitter to express their delight and thank the NYPD officers involved. But by then the couple was nowhere to be found.

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

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