A newly engaged British couple who managed to drop their engagement ring down a grate in New York’s Times Square have been found and reunited with their diamond jewelry after a search effort by the NYPD. John Drennan and his fiance Daniella, who live two hours north of London, were caught on surveillance cameras searching for the ring in Times Square on Friday night after it slipped off her finger and fell through a grate. The couple had asked nearby NYPD officers to help but they were unable to immediately locate the ring. The NYPD later put a call out on social media asking for help locating the couple because officers had luckily managed to retrieve the engagement ring. Officers posted the surveillance images and a photo of the engagement ring. The couple spotted the Twitter post as soon as they touched down in London yesterday morning. They have since been in touch with police and they are working to return the ring safely. Both John and Daniella took to Twitter to express their delight and thank the NYPD officers involved. Despite police initially saying John dropped the ring while proposing, the couple clarified the proposal actually occurred in Central Park earlier that day. In extremely unlucky circumstances, the ring slipped off Daniella’s finger as they were walking over a subway grate in Times Square later that night. “Thank you so much @NYPD and everyone for sharing and reuniting me with my ring! Proposal was in Central Park and fell off over the drain! Thought was gone forever! Can’t thank officers enough!” Daniella tweeted. John said police had to physically stop him from climbing down the drain so he could search himself.
