Bradley International Airport in Hartford announced Friday on Twitter that Kenley’s “Daddy doll” had been found.

Delta Airlines tweeted a picture of Daddy Doll in his own plane seat on his way home to Kenley Friday.

Original story:

Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks reached out across social media to ask for help in finding a little girl’s lost “Daddy Doll.”

A Facebook post shared by Bradley Airport Friday explains how a 18-month-old Kenley lost her “Daddy Doll” on a Delta flight somewhere between the Hartford, Connecticut airport (Bradley) and the Atlanta airport Thursday.

The doll is a small, plush pillow with the image of her currently-deployed father, and including a sound box with the voice of her father telling her “Hi Kenley, I love you.”

It’s important for Kenley to be reunited with her Daddy Doll because her father is deployed and the doll goes everywhere with her.

Kenley’s mom, Arielle, called both airports and Delta, but unfortunately no one has yet found the doll.

Bradley Airport is asking anyone who finds the doll to send a message through social media or turn it in to a Delta staff member or Information Center.
