According to a report published in CBC, Mara Soriano revealed that the custom made teddy was stolen from her on Friday July 24. The incident took place while she was shifting to her new house.
The bag in which the teddy was kept also had other valuable items like an iPad, a book of blank cheques, her citizenship card, her and her fiance's passports and social insurance cards etc. However, she has mentioned that she is not concerned about the other items but she really wants the teddy back.

The audio message stored in the teddy is a final message from her mother, Marilyn Soriano. 53-year-old Marilyn died of cancer in June last year.
She told the CBC, "At hospice her voice was different. Much softer. Not the mom I grew up with. She said that she loved me and she was proud of me and that she'll always be with me."
28-year-old Mara has also filed a police report in this regard. She also asserted that she has been asking anyone who has it or sees it to bring it back.
