NYPD searches for couple after their proposal goes sideways at Times Square

In the land of Trump and fascism it's nice to see that acts of kindness can still happen, like the man who tracked down the couple in this accidental, but ideal, engagement shot.

Sadly, staff at the NYPD Deputy Commissioner's Office say nobody has come forward yet but they are hoping to reunite the couple with the ring and find out if she actually did say yes.

Meanwhile, NYPD officers continued their search, and on Saturday morning they finally located the ring about 8 feet (2 meters) underground. "Help us find them?" the NYPD said on Twitter. "Congratulations!" the NYPD tweeted.

NY police found the ring and the couple as well.
