Authorities initially put out the request for help to identify the man and woman on Saturday.
Officials say on Friday in front of 2 Times Square, the two sought help from the police after the man dropped his engagement ring eight feet into a utility grate while attempting to propose.

However, police kept looking and found the ring early Saturday morning -- but by that time, the couple was nowhere to be found.
The couple was identified on Sunday, but the ring will have to be mailed to them because they had already left NYC for their home in England.
