Wonder Bear will return to an amusement pier on a New Jersey boardwalk.

The body portion of the mascot of Gillian’s Wonderland Pier in Ocean City disappeared after a break-in on Sunday.

Gillian’s representatives tell WMGM-TV a man called on Monday to say he had found the suit in the garbage. He returned it Tuesday and was given a $500 reward.

The suit is being cleaned.
