A Boy Left His Favorite Doll At The Airport, So The Staff Took Him On An Epic Adventure

June 17, 2015

After boarding a flight to Houston with his family, 6-year-old Owen panicked. Where was his favorite tiger, Hobbes?

His frantic mother and aunt called Tampa International Airport, and within an hour after landing in Texas, learned that Hobbes was safe and would be waiting in Lost & Found for the boy's return. But before the family got back, Hobbes took a trip of his own through the airport, and his adventures were photographed and printed in a book made by one of TPA's operations managers.

Checking out the FAA Air Traffic Control Tower. Looks like a storm's rolling in!

At last, Owen returns for me and I get to show him what I've been up to for the last five days. I had so much fun at TPA. Can't wait to come back!
