New York City police were seeking on Saturday for an unlucky suitor who dropped an engagement ring down a Times Square grating while proposing to his fiancee.

The man had chosen to pop the question shortly before midnight at the New York landmark.

However, video shared on social media by the New York Police Department showed the man fumble the ring before lying on the pavement in the popular tourist destination and peering into the grating while his partner looked on in concern.

They called emergency services, who eventually found it – but only after the couple had left without giving their names or contact information. 

Despite the loss, she gave him the answer he was hoping for.

"She said ‘Yes’ – but he was so excited that he dropped the ring in a grate," the NYPD wrote on Twitter. "Our @NYPDSpecialops officers rescued it & would like to return it to the happy couple. Help us find them?" 

They also released a picture of the dropped jewellery, saying: "We have your ring!".
