Bruce the elephant accompanied the family on a parasailing trip on April 24.
An Iowa family is “desperate” for help after losing their late son’s ashes during a Disney vacation. The Atkinson family brought along the ashes of Gabryel, who was born with a chromosome abnormality and died just before his 8th birthday. Liz, the mother, says the ashes were kept inside a stuffed toy elephant Gabryel was given as an infant.
The family visited Disney Springs and other Florida attractions in April – but when they returned home the elephant was nowhere to be found. According to Today now Liz Atkinson is looking for help on Facebook, posting a photo of the elephant and begging for help from anyone who might have seen it.
