Video captured the moment that a man who was proposing to his girlfriend Friday evening accidentally dropped the ring moments after proposing. The ring fell at least 8 feet into a utility grate.

The couple asked police to help them find the ring but they were unsuccessful.

The NYPD later found the ring Saturday morning, but the newly engaged couple did not leave their contact information with police.

Desperate to locate the couple, the NYPD posted the video and a note on Facebook, trying to reunite them with the ring:
