Any parent who has a child with a special lovey knows it’s prudent to buy two or more of them. Because if the lovey gets lost, so do buckets of tears and hours of sleep.
Little Tyra Blomqvist lost her teddy bear in Kungsholmen, West Stockholm, Sweden, last week. Her mom put up posters across the city asking for help in located the lovey, which is when the sign was noticed by an off-duty police officer, according to Fox News.
That’s when law enforcement officials stepped in.
The official Swedish Police Facebook page, Polisen Södermalm, now bears (ahem) a picture of the bear with a caption that reads, “Together, through ‘liking’ this picture, spreading the link, and keeping our eyes open, we can together make it so Tyra gets her beloved teddy back.”
Authorities have asked for the teddy to be returned to the nearest police station, which would comes as a huge relief to Tyra.
“The teddy bear really means a lot to her,” her mom said. “She can’t sleep properly at night without it and she searches for it when she wakes in the morning.”
Even if the teddy isn’t located (although, of course, everyone is rooting for it’s safe return), at least the little girl will grow up knowing she lives in a country whose biggest problem for a moment was her missing teddy. Which is a sad problem to her, to be sure, but in the grand scheme of things, it’s kind of a nice one to have.
