$1,000 reward if you can find our beloved parrot Hong Hong

$1,000 reward if you can find our beloved parrot Hong Hong
STOMPer Alex is offering a reward of $1,000 to anyone who can find his beloved parrot Hong Kong, that has gone missing since June 3.

Said the STOMPer:

"My pet parrot, Hong Hong, flew out of our flat at Blk 262A Compassvale Street at about 9pm of June 3.

"Hong Hong is a Congo African Grey parrot, tame and talkative.

"The reward is $1000 if found and retrieved.

"Please contact [redacted].

"My husband and I started our search with us sticking posters at surrounding neighbourhood lift lobbies. This was stopped due to need for approval from authorities and we continued our search by putting flyers into mailboxes (over 1000 copies). We have also posted ads on various websites and forums.

"On June 7, we were contacted and informed that Hong Hong had flown into a house at Blk 290A (either on 3rd or 4th June) but then flew off again.

"With this new info, we contracted a flyer company to print and distribute 10,000 flyer via HDB door-to-door. The flyer went out between 10th to 12th June but till date we still have no news of Hong Hong.

"We sincerely believe Hong Hong has flown into another HDB house because it is tired, thirsty and hungry.

"However, Hong Hong may have flown just slightly beyond the flyer's coverage or somebody may have overlooked on how dearly beloved Hong Hong is to me and my husband.

"We seek all fellow neighbours to help us find and retrieve Hong Hong. Any genuine news will also be rewarded, no questions asked."

Looks like the owner of this parrot hasn't given up yet, since it appears that this same parrot was reported lost on 7th June.

There are older reports of lost African grey parrots (Psittacus erithacus) here and here.
