The NYPD had been looking for the couple since Saturday, after getting the ring out of the grate.

The man and woman had been in Times Square late Friday night, and police say the man dropped the ring during the proposal to his girlfriend.

They asked for help, but police were initially unsuccessful at getting the ring out and the man and woman left without leaving their names or contact information.
