NEW YORK — A trans-Atlantic love affair has sprouted between a once anonymous English couple who lost an engagement ring down a Times Square utility grate, returning home thinking it was gone forever and the New York City police officers who found it in the muck eight feet under.

“I cannot thank you enough, although I will try,” Englishman John Drennan said in a tweet directed at the New York police Sunday. “A few cold beers when we come back to NYC! We are completely overwhelmed and you will definitely get a mention at our wedding!”

Policemen had been looking for Drennan and his fiancé, Daniella Anthony, since they retrieved the ring Saturday morning. He proposed to her in Central Park and she said it slipped off her finger and fell into the Times Square grate late Friday night.
