A teddy bear that plays a recording of the voice of her dead son is all a young British mother and daughter had left of their infant boy.

Now Jodi Lynn has made a heartfelt plea for the return of the bear, which went missing on a family trip.

Noah Lister was just 19 months old when he died in his sleep in February in Hull.

Ms Lynn, 18, had bought the stuffed toy animal to help comfort Noah's three-year-old sister Alexiah, who was very close to her brother and is struggling to cope with his loss.

"It was really comforting for her to have that bear because every time she got upset she would cuddle it so she could hear Noah's voice," Ms Lynn told ITV News.

Noah's voice plays whenever the teddy bear's hand is squeezed.

"It helped her a lot after Noah's death. It's really helped her to cope and if she hadn't had it she would have been a lot more upset."

It's thought that Alexiah lost the bear while on a bus.
