Did a double take for a minute there but no, our unicorn is safely tucked up in bed and does not bear the distinctive facial tattoo. Hope lost Heathrow unicorn finds its owner! another chimed in.

Oh God. My (now 19-year-old) son lost his Elmo when he was on a cruise at age 5 and I still havent gotten over it. Somebody please help this unicorn find its kiddo! one commented.
I hope she is returned soon some little one is not missing her friend. My 3 [year-old] autistic granddaughter left her very loved Big Bird at the park when we realized we raced back someone had left him on the gate at the entrance, another said. We were so grateful.
My daughter once lost her beloved kiki (stuffed cat) and whoa nelly was she heartbroken until I tracked it down. Youre a good Samaritan, one chimed in.

I certainly never expected the reaction it has had, she told SWNS.
Im not hugely confident about finding the owner at this point. I think its easy to forget that the vast majority of people dont have Twitter or use social media, she went on. I hope someone will come forward and Ill keep it safe until they do.
Im trying to register the unicorn with lost property at Heathrow in the hope that someone will contact them, she added.
Though a spokesperson for Heathrow Airport was not immediately available to offer further comment on Wednesday morning regarding whether or not the owners of the lost unicorn had yet been identified, officials for the air hub tweeted their support of Dorans mission on Monday.B:
