**************I'm so sorry. Have your mom talk to local post
offices & put reward flyers at all of them. A friend got hers
back because a mailman saw it at a neighbor's home. These birds
are loud, someone will here it. (Glad I have a lot of big dogs).
Everyone has to grocery shop, someone's bound to see a flyer
there. Was the bird banded? Don't give that info to public, only
the police. Also contact gas co and any maint crews in the town.
Our city workers found our Newfie who climbed a high fence &
took her to the shelter. The crew got my address frm police &
came to my home to tell us. I am sooo thankful. These men are
always working in neighborhoods & alleys. They would hear the
bird. Not something you can hide. Local cable companies can also
advertise for you on a special channel. Good luck to you. I'm so
