Did You See These Teddies at Weymouth Train Station?

A family on holiday in Dorset are looking for two very special teddies that have gone missing in Weymouth.

Lorri Bee and daughter Chantelle were at the train station when the two teddies, called Bunny and Buttercup, were left in the toilets. When they went back to get them a few minutes later, they had disappeared.

A campaign to reunite the teddies with their owner is already becoming popular online, with a Facebook appeal receiving thousands of shares.

Lorri said: "They mean everything to her, they go everywhere and they're like her little companions. She starts school a week today and the ultimate thought is that they would be there to wave her off. They're more like friends to her than just a toy."

The family even missed their train home in order to search for the missing teddies. Lorri said: "Without even knowing if there was a train home, I had to make the decision that we weren't going to go anywhere because her little Bunny and Buttercup meant everything to her.

"We missed the train then realised we had a two hour wait; thankfully knowing that we would get a train back meant we could spend the time searching high and low by retracing our steps."

Unfortunately, they couldn't find Bunny and Buttercup, and Lorri is convinced someone has taken them: "We're just hoping and praying that someone's picked them up or is waiting to hand them back in."

If you have any information and want to get in contact with Lorri, you can tweet her @mummylorri.
