Four stranded travellers — a bear, a monkey, a dog, and a lamb — currently taking refuge in the lost and found at the Halifax airport are one step closer to finding their way home.Halifax Airport lost and found
The stuffed animals were turned into the lost and found in October.
It’s one of those things that “pulls at your heartstrings,” said Ashley Gallant, airport spokeswoman.
Gallant said it would be great if the airport could reunite just one of the lost toys with its owner.
That’s why staff decided to post mug shots on the Halifax Stanfield International Airport lost and found Facebook page, under the caption: “Do you know one of these forgotten friends?”
There is a brown monkey decked out in a little bow tie, as well as a “little, wrinkly puppy,” said Gallant.
“He’s just a cute little cuddly guy with a really big nose.”
Gallant said the little white lamb, in particular, looks well-loved. “He’s been around for a little bit,” she said.
There’s also a large teddy bear with a red bow around its neck. “He’s pretty big, I don’t know how somebody misplaced him,” she said.Halifax Airport lost property
Gallant, who has small children at home, said she can’t imagine her own children going through life without their favourite stuffed animals.
“They can’t be gone 30 seconds and then it’s, ‘Where’s Teddy?’” she said.
Hoping for a happy ending
A few stuffed animals a month typically end up in the airport lost and found, with some eventually collected by their owners. But Gallant said sometimes a reunion just isn’t feasible, especially when Halifax is “just a small piece of a long, long trip.”
Gallant said she’s hoping for a happy ending for the misplaced foursome.
If they aren’t claimed soon, the stuffed animals will be sold in the next fundraiser for the airport chapel.
