    A little boy has been reunited with his "best friend" — a teddy bear he lost at Dallas Love Field.

    Luke Swofford lost the stuffed animal after flying into Love Field while visiting grandparents in Rockwall this week.

    "This moment is what kindness and love can do. Thank you to everybody. It's a silly old bear, but it's amazing! Thank you very much," the boy's mother, Nikki Swofford said.

    His family contacted the airport, police and Southwest Airlines, which then prompted calls to Facebook for help.

    "I know overall in the grand scheme of life and struggles - this is a bit silly. But this mom is not willing to give up yet!" Swofford wrote on Facebook.

    It didn't take long.

    "Please let Luke know that we've found Teddy Bear!" Dallas Love Field tweeted. "He'll be @ Lost & Found office waiting 4 his best bud!"

    The family picked up the bear Wednesday morning.
