A TODDLER’S teddy lost at Woburn Safari Park has prompted a nationwide bear hunt – and one bare-faced hoax.

Three-year-old Ruby Biddle has been crying herself to sleep ever since treasured Teddy May went astray during a day trip almost two weeks ago.

Desperate mum Suzanne posted a plea on Facebook but sadly there is no sighting of the battered ted, last seen near the penguin enclosure.

Hopes were raised last week when somebody sent a message saying they had the bear.

But after Suzanne arranged a 300- mile round trip to collect the toy, she received a email saying it was a joke.

“It was like a kick in the teeth,” said Suzanne, of North Wales.

She is now making a last ditch appeal for the return of Teddy May, which has been Ruby’s constant companion since birth.

He was last seen wearing a blue stripey top and a pair of Sesame Street underpants.

Anyone with information should contact the Citizen newsdesk. Alternatively Teddy May can be delivered anonymously to the Citizen offices in Mount Farm, Bletchley.

A spokesman for Woburn Safari Park said: “We are really sorry that Ruby accidentally lost her teddy on her visit to Woburn Safari Park.

“Our team have been hunting high and low for the teddy throughout the park but so far without any luck.

“We have offered Ruby a choice of stuffed cuddly toy animals from Junglies Gift Shop at the park. We hope this will help to put a smile on her face once again.”
