The desperate pair called for help just before midnight on Friday, but cops were unable to retrieve the ring, and the unnamed couple, believed to be tourists, gave up and left.

The New York Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a couple who lost an engagement ring in a marriage proposal gone wrong in Times Square.

The ring then fell about eight feet down a grate and the incident was caught on nearby security cameras.

The NYPD's Emergency Service Unit tried again in the sunlight of Saturday morning, and recovered the ring. Police have shared pictures of the footage from security cameras in the hope they will help them make sure the ring gets back to its rightful owners. He has short brown hair and a manicured beard.
