ORLANDO, Fla. A Facebook group with nearly 3,500 members is out to reunite a stuffed animal with its owner.

Mobile, Alabama resident Martha Durant founded the “Finding Eeyore’s Way Home” group in September after she found an Eeyore doll in the middle of an Interstate 10 access ramp. The highway was heavily trafficked by Hurricane Irma evacuees headed home.

Durant is certain Eeyore, a character in the Winnie the Pooh books, belongs to a child who fled the hurricane, and she hopes her efforts will catch the eye of someone in Florida, WKMG-TV reports.

“Eeyore misses his little one terribly and so wishes to go home,” the group’s description reads.
