If your kids have a special lovey or stuffed animal they tote around everywhere you understand that constant anxiety over the possibility of losing it. One family came face to face with that terrible fear in an airport of all places, but thankfully some very kind airport employees came to their rescue and gave a young boy and his beloved bear an amazing story they’ll never forget.

Four-year-old Luke was traveling with his grandparents from Colorado to Texas when his stuffed bear, Teddy, went missing. Luke’s dad put out an APB on Twitter and, because the internet is amazing, he got an answer.

As it turns out, they didn’t have far to go to bring Teddy home, he was found in the baggage claim at the Dallas Love Field Airport. Employees there responded on Twitter that they had Teddy. While they waited for him to be picked up, they decided to give Teddy a whirlwind journey through the airport and documented the whole VIP tour.

He checked out security, toured the tarmac and got invited to visit pilots in a cockpit. The best moment, however, was when he was finally reunited with Luke.
