Please all share Charlie’s details. She is still in our thoughts everyday and we follow up every sighting in the hope that one day it will be her..

Just got back from searching the Warren in North Somercotes but sadly no luck.

10 months today since Charlie flew off and still no luck in finding her.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Still no news but i won’t stop searching for her.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Really worried about Charlie’s chance of surviving in this freezing cold weather. Please keep a look out for her when you are out and about.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Feeling really deflated. Just got back from another search for Charlie and yet again no sign of her.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Was really hoping Charlie would have been sighted over the holidays but sadly we have had no news of her at all.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Still searching.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Just got back from another days search but once again there was no sign of Charlie.

DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Spent all day searching until it got too dark to see. Sadly there was no sign of Charlie.
Want to say a big THANK YOU to Ninja who was also drove over to search for Charlie.
Put up some new posters and handed out flyers in the village.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Just received a message to say a parrot with a red tail has been sighted today near Watts Tea room in Grainthorpe. This is so close to where Charlie went missing. Too late to go over now as it’s dark but will be going over tomorrow.
janiejewel1649
Okay thanks for post,. At least you know where he is.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Sadly no sightings today but lots of dog walkers have said they have seen an African Grey in the woods recently.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Already have recordings of Charlie and our other parrot. We play them over our phones whenever we go to a sighting. Mark is meeting up with the owner of another lost African Grey this afternoon.
janiejewel1649
As there has been sightings of Charlie, i would try a recording of another African Grey Parrot, which may encourage him to return. Try u tube for that. Claws xd.

Have had 2 possible sightings this week One on the old railway line between Utterby and Fotherby and one in Wheelsby Woods Grimsby.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
The parrot we caught stayed with us for a few days until we could be sure we were handing it over to the correct owner. She was called Doris and when the owner came to collect her there was no doubt in our minds that she belonged to them.
The search goes on for Charlie.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Tried to scan it but at the moment is too frightened of the scanner. Will try again once it has settled down.
Jane
Is this parrot micro chipped?
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Mark has caught the parrot. It looks just like Charlie but sadly it is not her. We think we have located the owner but will not hand it over until we have proof as several people have called thinking it belongs to them.

Today we got a message to say an African Grey had been sighted on a farm in the Lincolnshire Wolds. Mark and I went straight over and there it was sitting in a huge tree. We sat under that tree all afternoon until the light faded but despite all our efforts we didn’t manage to coax it down. We played recordings of Charlie and Treacle and the parrot reacted but was too frightened to leave the safety of the tree. It looked like Charlie and had a ring on the correct leg but until we catch it can’t be sure it was her. Going back again tomorrow. Apparently it was sighted in Scamblesby last week.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
It's been 5 long months now since Charlie flew off and still no sightings. I honestly don't believe she would still be flying free but as it has been a long hot summer I suppose she could have survived in the wild. Now autumn is upon us could you all please keep a look out for her as she would be easier to spot now the trees are dropping their leaves. Thank you.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Thank you Ollies mum . Sadly it isn't Charlie.
Ollies mum
African grey found in York.... Maybe a bit far away but maybe worth a check. No ring though

Charlie is still missing. We will never give up searching for her. Please contact us in the strictest confidence if you know anyone who has recently acquired a parrot. They may have bought her in all innocence and if so we are willing to buy them a young parrot . They may have fallen in love with her and not want to give her up but please ask them to think how we feel after owning her for almost 15 years.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Thank you. Both have been checked out and sadly neither are Charlie.

Parrott found. On Nantwich Police FB page. Parrott is being looked after by The Little Man, in Wettenhall.

Could Charlie have flown as far as Abington & Headlands in Northampton? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156742416134658&set=p.10156742416134658&type=3&theater

Yesterday we were given permission to search all the barns and out buidings at the local fruit farm but no sign of her. Updated some posters and checked out some other out buildings on local properties including a disused windmill. Posted more flyers at remote properties. Weather was awful, torrential rain, so drove the 50 mile back home as there is no way she would be spotted flying in such bad conditions.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
The search continues for Charlie but still no definite sightings. Thank you to all the lovely people who are helping with the search and sharing the details. A special thanks to Ninja.

Last night we were out searching until it got dark, stayed in the area overnight and then went out searching again this morning at 4am but still no luck. Decided to have a day of rest as we are both tired. Just hoping we get a call soon as our other parrot is fretting for her.

I want to say a big THANK YOU to Nik for contacting all the local media on our behalf. Today Mark did a live interview at 4.45pm on BBC radio Lincolnshire drive time. Let’s hope we get some sightings called in.
Mark and I have been walking the countryside all day again today. A lovely farmer gave us permission to search on his land which stretches for a few miles close to where Charlie went missing.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Today we drove over to Covenham first thing to check out the area where the strange squawk was heard but no sign of Charlie. Decided to widen our search to Tetney, North Thoresby and Utterby where we handed out sime flyers and put up posters. We then went back to Fulstow, Covenham and Grainthorpe. Posted a few flyers in remote houses.
Also drove to the large Pets For Homes in Grimsby but they wouldn’t let us display a missing poster. We were told management will not allow it anymore. So much for being a caring pet store. They have lost my custom now.

Just had a call reporting an unusual sounding bird squalk in Covenham by the church.
This location is about 3 miles as the crow flies from where Charlie went missing.
DogLostAlison - Administrator, Head Office & Area Co-ordinator, Lincolnshire
Been out searching again all day today. Covered Covenham, Grainthorpe, Marshchapel and Fulstow. No sign of Charlie but posters have been put up and flyers handed out.

A big thank you to Pauline, Julia, Claire and Phebe for all their help in searching and getting Charlie's details out there.

Presume you have tried putting his cage in the garden (Under supervision And place his toys, and some treats inside?, Also is it possible you can get hold of a recording of a similar bird, and place it near the cage? It may help encourage him to return. Claws xd.
