The ‘Journal’ shared the appeal on Facebook and Derry mother, Jaclyn Harron, recognised the toy as belonging to her little daughter Aoife.
Karen, Jaclyn and little Aoife met up in Derry on Tuesday during which time the toy known only as ‘Bunny’ was re-united with its doting owner.
“I am so glad we found it again,” said relieved mum, Jaclyn.
“We were panicking when we lost it as Aoife won’t sleep without it and she wouldn’t take to the new one we bought.”
As a sign of gratitude, Jaclyn and Aoife, presented Karen with a bunch of flowers.
