A devastated mother is desperate to find her daughter’s precious teddy bear which plays out the voice of her baby brother, who tragically died when he was just 19 months old.
Jodi Lynn, 18, from the UK was left devastated when her only son, Noah Lister, died in his sleep at their home in Hull on February 4.
Noah’s death came as a huge shock to his sister Alexiah, three, who struggled to understand why her brother was no longer with her.
To help Alexiah cope, one of her friends bought the youngster a tailor-made teddy bear which plays out Noah’s voice when you press its fingers, reports Daily Mail.
However, the family have since lost their ‘Noah Bear’ and Miss Lynn, with the help of her mother, Louisa Millington, has issued an appeal to help find the treasured cuddly toy.
She said: ‘It’s so upsetting and Alexiah is really upset. It was really comforting for her to have that bear because every time she got upset she would cuddle it so she could hear Noah’s voice.’
‘It helped her a lot after Noah’s death – it’s really helped her to cope and if she hadn’t had it she would have been a lot more upset.
‘I know that bear is out there somewhere and it would be great to find it. It would make my daughter so happy and she wouldn’t be sad anymore.’
Mrs Millington said: ‘Every time she is upset she will go and cuddle it and she will go ‘that’s my brother, Noah.’
‘We are very desperate to find it for the sake of my granddaughter and for the sake of the fact it is so personal.
‘It’s got my grandson’s voice in it so it’s absolutely no use to anyone.’
The lost bear, which was bought from the Build A Bear Workshop, is brown and wearing a white T-shirt with the words ‘I love you’ emblazoned across it.
We hope the family can locate the beloved bear.
