A car decal has been created to support the family of a missing toddler from Grande Prairie.

Two-year-old Myles, who was identified on social media, was last seen near the Wapiti River near the Canfor Bridge on Friday evening. When Mysha Dutra heard about it, she wanted to help out.

“It came to me because my son is also two-years-old. I have been thinking about the situation non-stop. They did the stickers for the Humboldt Broncos when (the collision happened). I can’t go down there and look for the little boy. I just figured I would help,” said Mysha Dutra.

She rallied up support from two local women that printed the items at a low cost. So far, there has been 230 printed with almost all of them sold.

The design is a blue teddy with the words “#Teddy Bears for Myles” across them. Dutra says she got the idea from the movement that hit the city over the weekend. People were leaving teddy bears on the front step to show support to the family.

Dutra is selling them from her personal Facebook page with plans made to pass over proceeds to a close family friend who has been looking after their finances. Each sticker is $3, and Dutra says they will continue to print them as long as people are wanting them. 

UPDATE: RCMP Underwater Recovery Team members search for toddler
