SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A San Diego photographer is searching for a mystery couple seen in a Sunset Cliffs engagement photo.

Elmer Rodriguez says he was out for a walk with his kids taking pictures of the sunset in late February.

When he looked off to the side, he says he spotted the couple in the distance and decided to capture the special moment.

“I decided it’s a good memory and they should have it,” Rodriguez said.

But when Rodriguez walked over to meet the couple, he says they vanished.

Rodriguez posted the photo on social media in hopes of finding the couple.

“I took this photo a few weeks ago, in #sunsetcliffsI called it, 'love at dusk' if anyone knows them, please let them know,” Rodriguez said in an Instagram post.

If he finds the couple, Rodriguez says he wants to give the photos away free of charge. “I’m not trying to get any profit, it’s just something I believe they should have."

In late 2018, a separate picture showing a couple getting engaged in Yosemite went viral.

The Michigan photographer who took that photo was eventually able to find the couple.
