BOSTON (AP/WPRI) — A Massachusetts family’s search for a beloved stuffed animal lost at Logan International Airport has ignited a wave of social media support.
Erica Fletcher says her 9-year-old daughter lost Hornzy Twigs at Terminal B in the Boston airport on Saturday and posted on Twitter about how her daughter was “heartbroken.” The Boston Globe reports several Twitter users them promised to help look for the pink baby giraffe at Logan, creating the hashtag #BringHornzyHome.
Fletcher said Sunday that the toy was likely left on the ground near the check-in area.
The toy is still missing, and Fletcher says if anyone happens across it they should send her a message.
We were in terminal B between the sidewalk and the American Airlines check in area. The giraffe’s name is Hornzy Twigs. (Our last name is Thacher.) Here is a sketch by my daughter. I reported to @BostonLogan lost & found already pic.twitter.com/c7C0s1ArvT— Erica Fletcher (@ericafletcher) July 8, 2018

When Eyewitness News contacted Fletcher, she said she and her family were still on vacation and that they were overwhelmed by people’s kindness.
“We’re using this experience to teach our kids the important thing is to help people, even if you don’t know them,” Fletcher said. “We may never find Hornzy, but I am asking anyone who feels touched by this story to consider donating to Kids in Need of Defense.”
Fletcher said KIND is a non-profit that provides legal help to migrant and refugee children to help them get back to their families.
