Natasha wrote: “Help wanted. We desperately need to locate a missing teddy. It belonged to our son Kaspar who died shortly after birth.

"We took him on holiday to North Wales with us and we think it fell out of our daughter's backpack. We visited so many places so could be anywhere.

"Dinas Dinlle beach, Welsh Mountain Zoo, Llanberis play area, Snowdon mountain railway, Porthmadog(we ate at The Big Rock Cafe), Llandudno - Great Orme Tramway.

"Please share. I am beyond heartbroken that we have lost him - the mum guilt is huge."

Natasha added: "We lost Kaspar in January 2018 and this bear goes everywhere with us. In the busyness of life with Kaspar’s two little sisters Thea, 1, and Mila, 3, we have only just noticed he is missing.

"We kindly ask for anyone and everyone to keep their eyes open as this teddy doesn't just mean something to the girls, but has cherished memories for the family as a whole.

"We would also like to thank everyone that has shared the post so far, and hope to bring him home soon."
