WILLOUGHBY, OH (WOIO) - A Willoughby man has found a lost stuffed animal and his quest to locate the owner has gone viral.

Petar Lukentina found the stuffed hippo over the weekend and he posted a message on Facebook in an effort to get it to its rightful owner.

Hey everyone, Adam and I found this little guy on our way to Fiona's Coffee Bar & Bakery Downtown Willoughby . The poor fella was in the middle of the intersection. If you have friends with children in that area, please ask if they've lost a stuffed animal on Ridge Road. I know it seems minuscule to us, but to a child it can mean the world.

Petar, whose message has been shared more than 5,000 times, has since taken the hippo home and cleaned him all up.
