A family is appealing for help from people in Southport, after this much-loved teddy bear disappeared last week.

Gillian Nelson, from Annan in Scotland, issued her plea and also offered a reward for his safe return.

She said:

“We were staying in Southport and my three-year-old daughter has lost her beloved Teddy sometime on Wednesday, July 15 205.

“As you can see this is a well-loved teddy that I bought her before she was born and we are both distraught.

“If anyone has found this or is able to help we would really appreciate it.

“We were staying at the Travel Lodge at Lord Street and went shopping on Chapel Street before heading to the pier then back to the car behind the Travel Lodge.”

The family is desperate to see the teddy bear return home.

Gillian said:

“He was been a big part of her life.

“Like most children she was never far away from teddy. He played a big part in our wedding and all of our family and friends are well acquainted with her best friend.

“I will keep everything crossed – we had such a lovely time in Southport as well.

“We would love to be reunited if you can help please get in touch.”
