SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. — A little boy is being reunited with his stuffed dinosaur through the power of social media and help from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).

On Tuesday morning, WSDOT posted on Twitter and Facebook calling for the public’s help to locate the owner of the toy found Friday on the side of eastbound Interstate 90 just past Snoqualmie Pass.

“OK let’s do some good and make magic happen. Someone reached out to let us know they found this dinosaur on the side of EB I-90 just past @SnoqualmiePass Friday. The dino wants to get back to its family. Anyone have a lead so we can help reunite it?” the Tweet said.

Just a couple of hours later, the Tweet and the Facebook post had reached thousands of shares, with WSDOT’s other accounts retweeting to spread the word.

That online push found its way to Everett, WA where Haley, the mother of a boy named Kameron, instantly recognized the green dino.

“This is my son Kameron’s! He has been absolutely heartbroken without his Dino and last night at bedtime told me Dino was “lonely and crying on the road all by himself”. Break this Mama’s heart! This brings me happy tears and shows there are still good people in this world. THANK YOU!! ❤️” Haley wrote in a comment on WSDOT’s Facebook page. 

WSDOT officials said a reunion between Kameron and his dino is “being worked on ASAP.”
