Mara Soriano has taken to social media to help her search for her teddy bear with her dying mother’s voice recording. Celebrities like Ryan Raynolds, Zach Braff, and Dan Levy have also joined the search.
Actor Ryan Raynolds twitter message: “Vancouver: $5,000 to anyone who returns this bear to Mara. “Zero questions asked. I think we all need this bear to come home.”
The teddy bear has a red and white dress with a white jean jacket and wears her mother’s signature look, black frame glasses. What made it special was her dying mother’s voice recording that told Mara that, “she loved me, she was proud of me, and she’ll always be with me. I hugged it every time I missed her.”
Mara’s mom Marilyn, battled cancer and before she died at 53, gave her the bear.
On the day of moving to a new place and attending to a friend who had an accident, the bag where the bear was in, got stolen from outside of the U-Haul that they had rented.
Security footage showed that someone grabbed the bag and just walked away. Aside from the bear, the bag contained other important items like insurance cards, an iPad, passports, citizenship paperwork, and a Nintendo Switch.
Soriano posted posters of the bear in their area to help in their search. It also has an email account that Soriano has set up for it. The Vancouver Police even tweeted for anyone with information on the bear’s whereabouts, to call 604-717-3321.
Please help bring the bear back home to Mara.
