Poor Teddy was left behind at the airport.

Traveling children are too often separated from their beloved stuffed animals. Remember Owen Lake’s tiger, who was left behind at Tampa International Airport? Or an 8-month-old boy’s teddy bear, Pooh, who went on the trip of a lifetime with British Airways?

Unfortunately, another teddy bear has been separated from its owner—this time, at Cork Airport in Ireland.

Mashable reported Wednesday that the Internet is working hard to reunite this pink, well-worn stuffed bear with its owner.

“This pink Teddy should have been heading off on a flight earlier today,” Cork Airport posted on Facebook on February 5, “but got separated from his travelling companions. If you are missing Teddy please contact us. Teddy has had his dinner and tea and is relaxing in our lounge at present.”

Despite receiving more than 800 shares, today marks Teddy’s fourth day at the airport.

But Teddy hasn’t let the change in plans ruin a much-anticipated vacation. Cork Airport has been providing the concerned public with regular updates, which suggest Teddy has mostly been relaxing in the airport lounge, entertaining passengers on the piano, and helping Aer Lingus at baggage claim.

Fingers crossed that this plush bear will be reunited with its family after they return from their winter break. In the meantime, Cork Airport is asking that people continue to share the story of Teddy’s airport adventures. Because these stories are best with a happy ending.
