The Internet left no tweet unturned in its quest this week to return Roar, a stuffed lion, to its owner, a little girl named Phoebe.
Phoebe accidentally left Roar on a train in London, where he was later found by Lauren Bishop Vranch, a woman passing through the city.
Lauren posted a photo of the very desperate Roar on her Twitter page with the hashtag #LostBear, and the Internet took it from there. Roar's missing persons report was added to the Facebook community "Spotted: On the Train," where it was shared nearly 9,000 times.
Meanwhile, Lauren cheered up her found companion by inviting him into her hotel suite (separate beds), and treating him to a holiday pantomime show (incidentally, it was totally his thing). She continued to post photos, tweet and encourage others to help with the hunt.
After some time, taking care of Roar became a burden for Lauren, so she tried to leave him at the train station's Lost and Found. Unfortunately, the station refused to take the furry bear over the weekend, thus, Roar and Lauren's story continued.
A day later, Twitter finally fulfilled its promise when a user named "Lost Teddy Bear" tweeted to Lauren that Phoebe's father responded to the Facebook post and laid claim to Roar. On Monday, Phoebe and her dad met up with Lauren, and Roar returned home after his unintentional vacay.
Cheers to the Internet for coming to the rescue once again! Now, what's the best hashtag to use in terms of misplaced car keys?
