(FOX NEWS) - Mission accomplished.
One little girl in Kansas can now rest easier after being reunited with her special “daddy doll” that she cuddles with nearly every night, in honor of her father, who is currently deployed overseas with the Army. The 6-year-old was thrilled to recently have the lost toy returned to her at Kansas City International Airport, thanks to the help of two vigilant women and a now-viral social media campaign.
On March 22, airport staffer Dina Morley was shocked to find the military-inspired doll at the air hub, KMBC reports. She knew the well-loved, camo-printed trinket, featuring a photo of a smiling man and little girl, had to be special.
“I work at valet services by Southwest Airlines,” Morley told the outlet. “A customer walked up to me and said she found it on the floor. I kept it at valet services for a few days, hoping somebody would call about it or come back for it, but nobody did.”
Enlisting the aid of her friend, Heather Parsons, the women took to Facebook and contacted KMBC, asking if the news outlet would help spread word of the lost toy.
