MISSING: Very loved cuddle last seen on the Fourth of July

PENDER COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) - We all have that childhood toy that we couldn’t live without. For some it’s a blanket, for others it’s a stuffed animal. Regardless of the item, we imprint to it and become heartbroken if anything happens to it.

Ellie the Elephant has been with his person since he was born and has been extremely loved.

The boy’s mother turned to Facebook in an effort to find her son’s 5-year-old lovey who went missing July 4.

Ellie was last seen at the CVS in Snead’s Ferry, though Ellie could be in other places.

The family next went to Surf City and parked just beside Beach Bunny and walked over to the main beach access, though Ellie was not in tow to the beach.

Please keep an eye out for Ellie and help this special cuddle reunite with its child.
