A three-year-old girl from Cumbria is being reunited with her beloved teddy bear following a high-profile appeal.
Mark Milne, 36, from Carlisle, offered a £100 reward after the black and white panda bear, named Issi Noho, went missing during a shopping trip in Gateshead on Friday.
He took action after his daughter Evie was left inconsolable.
The panda was found by a Tyneside family in a lift.
The family put out their appeal after the bear was last seen near the Debenhams department store in the Metro Centre.
Mr Milne said it was a "fantastic outcome" and said his daughter was delighted.
He said: "She is very excited."
