Ms Gilder said Rocky “is my world” and her “little baby”.

She is “very close to him” and added that he is always talking to her.

She said that last night she did not sleep at all because she was so worried about her beloved pet’s safety.

Rocky is a tame bird who has never left the house and so is not used to the outdoor environment.

Ms Gilder has shared information about Rocky on social media and contacted local vets.

She explained he will respond to his name and she just needs someone to catch him, so she can bring him home.

If you spot Rocky you can call Ms Gilder on 07904547687.
