Last weekend, Southwest Airlines helped reunite a little girl and her beloved Winnie the Pooh bear.

On her flight from Kansas City to Las Vegas, a 12 year old girl left behind her favorite teddy bear. Her mother, Rebecca Kurtz, decided to take to Twitter for some help.

“Ok Internet and @SouthwestAir I need your help. My girl left her Pooh Bear on flight 2741 from Kansas City to Vegas on 2/15. He was her very first Christmas present 12 years ago! Help us bring him home,” Kurtz wrote.

Well, the magic of social media helped to spread the word and two days later, Southwest Airlines responded to Kurtz’ tweet with a picture of the Winnie the Pooh bear hanging out at the airport alongside another pilot teddy bear and bear airport worker. “This the guy you’re looking for?” the tweet read.

Of course, Kurtz was so relieved that Southwest Airlines found the Winnie the Pooh bear and took great care of him while he was missing. Kurtz then took to Twitter again, thanking Southwest Airlines for helping to find the lost bear.

“@SouthwestAir outdoes themselves again,” she wrote in her follow-up tweet. “Huge shout out to Gareth Reynolds at the Las Vegas station for finding our Pooh Bear! And it looks like Pooh went on a bit of an adventure while we were gone.”

It looks as though while Winnie the Pooh was lost, he had a great time with Southwest Airlines. The airline even took to Twitter once again to add that Pooh Bear “had a great time at the Hundred Acre Airport,” in reference to Winnie-the-Pooh’s fictional home in the Hundred Acre Wood, but noted that he was ready to “be back home and hibernate after his big adventure.”

We are so glad to see this little girl reunited with her beloved Winnie the Pooh bear.
