Ryan Reynolds, who led the search for Mara’s bear, reminded everyone once again why we like him so much
Mara posted this online plea asking for help to find the last remaining things she has from her deceased mom, which were stolen
Mara recounted how she got her beloved teddy bear stolen. “My fiance and I were moving into a new apartment with the help of our two friends. We rented a uHaul truck to bring all of our belongings over, one of our friends decided to bike over to the new apartment and meet us there.”
But as soon as they got to the loading bay, “we got a call that my friend was hit by a van!” Mara immediately ran out of the uHaul to see her friend. “I dropped everything I had and just assumed my fiance would pick up the backpack full of important items.”
Everyone started looking for the bear, with Ryan Reynolds putting out a $5,000 reward and an unlimited supply of gin for it
Unfortunately, Mara’s fiance and the other friend were in the back and didn’t even realize that there was the bag to get. “Thankfully, my friend was okay, but by the time we realized the bag was gone, it was already too late,” Mara said.
And that bag had Mara’s famous teddy bear—that is, a memento to her mother, who gave it to her before passing away after a 9-year-long battle with cancer. The little bear has an inbuilt voice recording of her mother saying that she loves her and will always be with her.
And, finally, Mama Bear is home!
