A 10-YEAR-OLD girl in Scotland has been reunited with her beloved teddy after it got lost on a trip to Canada.

Videos and pictures of Eve Mcilquham's cuddly chocolate Labrador dog toy were seen as far afield as Japan, Jamaica and Australia in the desperate search for the teddy.

The youngster from Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, was left distraught when she returned home from a trip to see her uncle in Canada without the toy.

Her teddy, called Basil, was one of 21 cuddly toys reported missing from Glasgow Airport and featured in a video made by the airport to reunite them with their owners.

Mum Lorraine said that when her daughter saw the video she spotted Basil straight away.

Lorraine said: "When we realised we'd lost Basil, Eve was really upset.

"She got him from a friend at around the same time we got our chocolate lab puppy, Archie.

"Eve takes Basil on holiday with her so she doesn't miss Archie as much, so he was a big loss.

"I saw the video of the all the toys on the carousel online and recognised Basil.

"I showed Eve the video without telling her he was in it and she spotted him straight away. She was so excited and couldn't wait to get him back."

Eve added that she was delighted to finally get Basil back.

Eve said: "I'm so happy I've got Basil back. I missed him loads. I hope the other kids who have lost their teddies get them back too."

In September, Glasgow Airport introduced its first-of-a-kind 'Take Care of my Bear' tags to be given out to any child travelling from the airport with a soft toy.

The tags are available at check-in and can be marked with the owner's details.

A spokesman for Glasgow Airport said: "I'm delighted that Eve and Basil have been reunited and that they can spend Christmas together.

"If you and your furry friend are travelling through the airport this festive season, don't forget to pick up your teddy tag at one of our check-in desks."
