A 7-year-old Maryland boy has a problem many parents can relate to. Two days ago, young Carlos Cabean's beloved teddy bear, Kevin, went missing after an unfortunate incident involving Carlos' little brother, and now, he's desperately asking for help finding the bear. And so is his mother.
Carlos' mom, Carmen Cabean, was driving him and his younger brother, Christian, to school on Tuesday, and the family was headed southbound along MD 355 in Rockville when Christian tossed Kevin the Bear out the car window. They were near N. Washington Street when it happened. Carlos' mom shared his adorable video plea on our FOX 5 Facebook page Wednesday. In it, the 7-year-old asks for Kevin the Bear's safe return, and explains what happened.
"My name is Carlos and this morning, on my way to school, my brother threw my favorite bear Kevin out the window on 355 in Rockville," Carlos explains. "Please help me find Kevin and bring him home."
Please Tag someone who can help, this kid will not stop until he gets answers Please help him find his bear Kevin. ...
Christian says it was all an accident, but Carlos tells a different story. He thinks his little brother got jealous, and threw Kevin out the window on purpose. But either way, the search is now on to find him. He's been missing since Tuesday, and Carlos hopes someone out there can help. His mom has already done her best, having searched along MD 355 in the area where Kevin went missing. But so far, he hasn't turned up.
Carlos' mom describes Kevin as brown shabby bear that is worn, but loveable. He has a button nose, and he was wearing some SpongeBob Band-Aids-- as the result of a recent accident. Mom says "Dr. Carlos" patched him up. Kevin wasn't wearing any clothes, and he has black eyes and a cute button nose.
According to Carlos' mom, he's had Kevin for a long time. In fact, she says Kevin is an adult now, and when Carlos goes to school, Kevin goes "to work." Carlos' family is a military family, and Cabean-- who is now retired from the U.S. Army-- says they've moved around a lot, and Kevin has become one of the only constant friends in her son's life.
Carlos' family is asking anyone who might spot Kevin in the area of MD 355 near N. Washington in Rockville to please help bring him home. And, they say, if someone has him, Kevin can be returned to Carlos with no questions asked. He's just hoping to somehow get his best friend back.
