According to Kelly - who found the bear - he (or she) was discovered laying in the road near Whitesboro Street, just outside the Aud. In a Facebook post from April 27, Kelly says:

"Does anyone recognize this little bear? We found it today, in the road by the Aud in Utica. It looked like it might have fallen off a vehicle as someone left the parking area on Whitesboro St-see map for approx location. I know it's probably a long-shot but maybe someone is really missing this bear and it can find its way home."

If you recognize this bear - or know the child that might be missing it - please reach out to Kelly via Facebook.
