The only good news story to come out of Australian Customs since 7 September 2013

24-01-2014 –

The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) is pleased to announce it will this morning reunite a teddy with her owner, after it was lost at Sydney International Airport on Tuesday, 21 January 2014.
On Wednesday 22 January ACBPS received a Tweet notifying the Service that a teddy bear had been lost at the airport, after a family of passengers arrived back home from an international flight.
ACBPS officers quickly swung into action, launching a search of Customs controlled areas in an attempt to reunite the lost teddy with her family.

After a thorough search officers located the teddy, safe, sound and fast asleep in a Customs controlled area of the Airport, yesterday morning , Thursday, 23 January.

Although she didn’t have a valid passport or any other travel documents, ACBPS officers were quick to establish her identity after a short interview and are confident she can be allowed into the country to be reunited with her family.

While her ordeal was no picnic, ACBPS is confident the teddy will bear up okay.
