“Build-a-bear with loving voice recording from mom just before she died of cancer. I also had her beloved pink Mickey Mouse wallet in the bag.

All goods replaceable, I just want my mamabear again.”

The operator of the stolen bear also posted on social media about her treasured bear and the story began to gain steam. Some local news retailers and even CNN picked up the story, asking for the thief to return the sentinemal item.

The concept designed its way to Vancouver native Ryan Reynolds he put a contact out on Twitter supplying a $5,000 reward, with zero questions requested. Times later, the bear was returned without having a scratch and reunited with its operator.
