Young woman with special needs lost her best friend

A local woman with special needs lost her best friend during the Sparta holiday parade.

But this wasn’t any ordinary friend, it was a teddy bear that belonged to Macey.

After the parade, Macey and her family went looking for the bear but couldn’t find it anywhere.

They posted for help on Facebook and printed out flyers asking for help.

One of those flyers ended up at the Sparta Fire Department and Friday Macey got to come to the station to pick out a new bear.

Macey and her family are still holding out hope for Teddy but in the meantime Macey seems to love her new friend
