Tweed girl takes to social media in bid to find missing bird
A TWEED girl has taken to social media in the hope to find her missing pet lorikeet.
Chloe Ringstad's rainbow lorikeet has been missing for almost a month, since August 21.
"My partner got him as a pet for us when we first got together…two years ago," Ms Ringstad said.
Ms Ringstad said they have no idea how the bird escaped, but it disappeared about 6 or 7pm that night.
When she went to clean the bird's cage trays - without removing the cage covers - she noticed something was wrong.
"Usually if I do something like that late at night Boss goes off laughing and talking," she said.
"I noticed when I finished he didn't make a sound the whole time, which was really weird.
"I uncovered his cage and couldn't find him."
Ms Ringstad said she was in total shock to find the bird missing.
"I thought straight away he's either been stolen or let out by someone or something," she said.
"He wouldn't have been able to get out by himself without help and he wasn't the type of bird to fly away."
