"It seems to be that this bear is very special to somebody and belongs in somebody's family," Desai told KTRK.
The friend who used it as part of the gift exchange said she got it from an estate sale, but doesn’t remember when or where exactly.
Desai also reached out to the company that made the bear, but sadly, it does not track who owns what bear, KTRK reported.
She has one glimmer of hope, however. The bear has the name included on the tag and she hopes that eventually the bear will be reunited with the rightful family.
