Owner searches for missing parrot
A Poteau is asking area residents to help him locate his pet parrot, "Lucy," which vanished just days before Christmas. Getz said he believes the bird may have been stolen from his residence. The day before Lucy disappeared, three men in a white pickup truck pulled up in front of Getz's home where his wife Carla was out in the front yard. The men asked her several questions about Lucy. The following day Getz and his wife left th residence for about 45 minutes and when they returned Lucy was no where to be found.Getz said three or four birds similar to Lucy live around Poteau, but none with the same red, yellow and blue colorings. Lucy is a scarlet macaw. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Poteau Police Department at (918) 647-8620.
