Ryan Reynolds puts up $5,000 reward for stolen teddy bear

Actor Ryan Reynolds shared a tweet from Deborah Goble, a Canadian Broadcasting Company reporter who’d asked her followers for help tracking down a stolen teddy bear that means a lot to its original owner. Instead of simply sharing Goble’s message with his 16.2 million followers, Reynolds went a step further, offering a “no questions asked” $5,000 reward for anyone who returns the bear to its owner, 28-year-old Mara Soriano.

The bear contains the voice of Mara’s mother, who  passed away last year, saying, “I love you. I’m proud of you. I’ll always be with you.” The bear was stolen in Vancouver during a recent move.
