A man hung many posters in hopes that someone will find his wife’s beloved teddy bear.

The couple of Russia, said that the teddy bear had traveled to 17 countries with them. During their latest trip to Australia, the teddy bear got lost.

Alexey Mironov, 31, and his wife Irina, 29, said that the teddy bear was last seen when they were driving from Melbourne to Sydney.

The bear was sitting in the back seat before it went missing. They are now appealing to people of Australia, to help them find it.

The bear was the first gift that Alexey Mironov gave his wife when they met 10 years ago. “Until this point we didn’t realize how special it was to us,” Alexey Mironov said.

“My wife is unhappy,” he added. Irina Mironov was left devastated since the bear went missing. The couple is now offering a $5,000 reward, which they said is all the savings they have.

In a Facebook post, the husband wrote: “We've lost our best friend, our beloved teddy bear. Please share my post and help us create the buzz and bring it home. Our life is not full without it. It means the world to us.

“Thanks in advance for your help. You never know who might see your post and be aware of the place where our teddy bear may be. Every re-post counts.”
