Carolyn Martin’s family was visiting the Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery District when her two-year-old daughter’s teddy bear went missing on Tuesday.
Now, the mother is asking Torontonians for help getting it back.
“It was about 30 to 35 minutes after we realized that we didn’t have him.”
The family had to head home to Newfoundland Wednesday morning, but were not able to find the bear before their departure.
Martin said she wrote the post because she had seen other people in her situation do the same and get responses that have helped. It made her hopeful that somebody might see her post and know something.
She is offering a $100 reward for anyone who finds the bear.
The Toronto Christmas Market said it has not had anything turned into the lost and found yet, but will watch for the bear to turn up.
Martin’s young daughter, Lennon, is upset and doesn’t know why her beloved bear is missing. The bear has travelled with them on other vacations to Spain and England, but Martin said he usually stays in the room.
The bear is a light beige colour, with a pink ribbon tied around its neck and wearing a white “great wolf kids” T-shirt.
Martin said her daughter has a lot of toys and that she’ll be okay, but the bear is special and she hopes that they’ll find him.
