Big news from NYC! Bongo missing
child beanie baby has been found!
"I never gave up hope — I prayed, mediated, and now he’s with us again"
said Bonni Marcus, 47, who was heartbroken after losing Bongo, a stuffed monkey she had raised like a child for the past ten years.
Bong was lost on Marcus's walk home from eating a meal with her boyfriend Jack Zinzi in Brooklyn on August 1st.
Zinzi and Marcus must have a lot of time on their hands cause the couple made flyers and passed them out around the neighborhood.
Lucky for them they asked a group of men including near by resident Luis Barreto about Bong and the reward. Barreto said found the beanie baby / lost loved one on a parking meter and took it back to his place.
As they approached his apartment Marcus said she "felt Bongo’s presence." We're guessing she also must have felt a server head injury in her childhood.
Bongo will also be reunited with his identical Beanie Baby brothers — named Doe, Ray and Me — who Marcus said, “were also suffering.”
