This teddy is being reunited with its owner after being left behind at Cork Airport
The teddy will be making his trip home to be reunited with this owner on Monday.

THIS TEDDY WAS left behind at Cork Airport since last Sunday.

Since he was found, pictures of the teddy have been shared by thousands on social media in an effort to find the family who might be missing him.

The teddy’s owner… is two-year-old Anna who lives in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The teddy will be making his trip home to be reunited with Anna on Monday.

Cork Airport have said that they’re assured the teddy ”will be well looked after” by the captain and cabin crew until he is handed back to his owner.

Niall MacCarthy, managing director at Cork Airport said it was “truly heart-warming the efforts made by strangers to find Teddy’s young owner and reunite him with her. He has literally been around the world and back again in 80 hours”.

It seems that Teddy was left behind when Anna’s family, who are originally from Co Cork, were returning back to Amsterdam following a family visit.
