Airport Seeks To Reunite Lost Teddies With Their Owners

An airport has launched an appeal to reunite young passengers with hundreds of teddies left behind on their travels.
The lost property office at Glasgow Airport is overflowing with soft toys, with 21 left in the last three months.
Staff said they know children can be left "distraught" by losing a cuddly friend so the airport is introducing a "take care of my bear" tag to be given out to youngsters travelling with a soft toy which can be marked with the owner's details.
Pictures of the lost bears are being shared on social media as the airport encourages owners to return to the Luggage Point base to collect them.
A spokesman for Glasgow Airport said: "We hope that somebody will recognise their furry friend and collect them.
"We're just softies really, and we're doing everything we can to make sure more bears don't get mislaid which is why we're introducing our new teddy bear tags.
"We can't bear for any more teddies to go missing and we understand how traumatic it can be for any child and their parents."
