This is a great follow up to our Tuesday , “Online Sunshine” story!
Ryan Reynolds previously offered a $5,000 reward to anyone who could find or return a special stolen teddy bear to its rightful owner.
The stolen teddy bear has finally made it back home!
The actor, 43, revealed on Wednesday that the teddy bear containing the voice recording of a woman’s dead mother had been returned.
“In happier news… thank you everyone who searched high and low. To the person who took the bear, thanks for keeping it safe. Vancouver is awesome. #FoundMarasBear,” Reynolds tweeted.
The bear belongs to Mara Soriano, who first reported several of her things, among them a black backpack containing the bear, had been stolen during a recent move in Canada. She received an email from someone late Tuesday night saying that they had the bear.
Soriano said she didn’t care about her stolen documents — including her passport, an iPad or her Nintendo Switch — she just wanted to be reunited with the bear containing the last recording of her mother’s voice before losing her battle to cancer at 53 last year.
