Toronto police are trying to reunite a teddy bear with its owner, after finding the stuffed toy outside of an east-end hospital.

The bear, which is approximately 30 centimetres tall, was located outside of Rouge Valley Centenary hospital on Ellesmere Road near Morningside Avenue.

It was found at approximately 10 p.m. on Tuesday, Toronto Police Const. Jeniffer Sidhu told CTV News.

The bear may have been a patient at the teddy bear clinic hosted by the facility as a way to teach children on March Break about basic medical care.

The bear spent time Wednesday morning with Const. Clint Stibbe, who shared a photo of "Constable in Training PC Bear" on Twitter, before being brought to police headquarters

"Officer Jen is keeping him warm and safe" until the bear's owner is found, Sidhu said.

Anyone able to reunite the bear with its owner is asked to call police at 416-808-7093.
