Airport Reunites 6-Year-Old With Lost Toy



  • Jaydence Ronco arrived home from vacation and discovered that his stuffed animal was missing.
  • Airport personnel found the stuffed animal and made it their mission to search for this missing toy’s family.
  • It turns out that this stuffed animal is a special gift from a judge to the little boy when his adoption papers were finalized.

We understand how children could become attached to their playthings, and how difficult the situation is when the beloved toys go missing. The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport understands this too.

When the airport employees found a stuffed dog left behind by a passenger, they made it their mission to search for this missing toy’s family. They posted about the missing dalmatian on social media, hoping to track down its family.


“We found him hanging out by Starbucks outside of our security checkpoint. Look familiar?” the airport wrote. “Help us share so we can get him home.”

The airport personnel named him Jet.


The first post turned out unsuccessful but it is important for the stuffed animal to find his home. This brought on their second plan: adorable pictures of the missing toy in an exclusive tour of the airport, including those at a ticketing counter, onboard a plane, in the driver’s seat of a luggage cart, and even in the cockpit.

 “We’ve been spending all day with our new friend trying to figure out where his family could have gone!” the airport added. “After getting him a mask (fly healthy), we took him out to our friends at United. He couldn’t smell his family on the plane or near the gate — so we don’t think they flew United. We’ll keep looking!”


Soon, these pictures reached someone able to inform the owners. The stuffed animal has been missing for over a week. Finally, the beloved toy was reunited with his owner after nine long days. His name is Jaydence Ronco, a sweet little boy from Florida!

Masch Masch was misplaced. That morning, the little boy was really sleepy that he had forgotten his stuffed animal in the coffee shop.


“We fostered all three of these boys and they each came up for adoption,” his mom explained. “And so, at different times we met before the judge, and the judge, at least in the state of Florida, always gives a stuffed animal on their adoption day at the court.”


Masch Masch was a special gift. There is nothing better than seeing a boy and his special friend reunited.
