A 100-year old teddy bear which was left behind at the Bristol Airport over a year ago has now been reunited with its owner.
Airport staff discovered a teddy bear attached to a picture of two little girls, holding the stuffed toy animal. A date of 1918 was written on the back of the photo including the names Glyn and Dora.
After searching through airport flight records airport staff was unable to connect a passenger to the misplaced teddy.
Robert Glyn Baker, who had played with the treasured teddy as a child, came forth to claim his family possession after reading about the Bristol bear in the Mature Times, a newspaper for settled adults, 50 and over.
Mr. Baker, who was heading to Cyprus, was beyond shocked to have learned that his missing teddy had been found. “I was stunned when I saw my bear. I thought it was lost forever,” he said.
