INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – The mother who helped launch the search to #FindBaby, the stuffed raccoon her daughter lost during cancer treatment at Riley Hospital, has a happy update!

The five-year-old Johnson County girl has been without her best friend since he disappeared on Friday.

Many people have since responded, saying they may have found a "twin" raccoon to replace "Baby".

So Luisa's mom created a P.O. Box.

If she gets the right raccoon, that will go to Luisa.


Any other duplicates, she plans to donate to the "Riley Cheer Guild", to be given to other Riley kids.

Toys that go to the Guild must be new, with tags.

Leah, Luisa's mom, says it's been special to see the generous hearts wanting to help.
