Actor Ryan Reynolds has offered a nice reward of R82 400 for the return of a stuffed teddy bear missing from a van in Canada. The toy, which belongs to Mara Soriano, has great value to her and when Reynold saw the news about it, he offered to help her get it back.
According to Lad Bible, Mara's mother Marilyn Sariano passed away in 2019 and the lady's voice recording had been placed inside the toy to comfort her daughter.
The recording said:
"I love you, I'm proud of you, I'll always be with you."
The teddy bear disappeared while Mara and her fiancé were offloading a van in Vancouver on Friday, 24 July. The lady was distracted after her friend, who was coming to help, called saying she had gotten into a minor accident.

He said: "$5,000 (R82 400) to anyone who returns this bear to Mara. Zero questions asked. I think we all need this bear to come home."
Mara said someone had been captured by security camera looking around before stealing the bag. She said the bear bore her mother's voice before she became sick and her voice changed, hence was the only memory of her normal voice.
