(Newser) – New Yorkers eagerly took up the cause of Patrick Moberg, who spotted the woman of his dreams across a crowded subway car, lost her in the crowd when they both exited the train, and set up a website dedicated to finding her, Reuters reports. Thanks to a citywide outpouring of interest, the woman has now been identified.

Moberg, 21, a web designer, launched the site nygirlofmydreams.com after falling in love at first sight last week with the mystery woman, a brunette with a flower in her hair who has now been identified as a 22-year-old magazine intern from Australia. Now that he has found his woman, Moberg will no longer be updating the website.
