A $2,200 bird is still missing after it was stolen from a local pet store earlier this week.
Floyd is a rose-breasted cockatoo with pink, grey and maroon feathers. Sunday at 4 a white man with brown hair took Floyd under his coat and drove off in a black SUV. Floyd is sick with a bacterial infection, and if is not treated he could die.
"It's just awful. I mean he's been here for a couple months and i've just developed a close relationship with him and he's a wonderful bird and to think anybody would take a bird, even a sick bird, that's just worse that's awful ,that just makes me sick to my stomach that somebody would take it," said Della Allen, Pet Supplies Plus employee.
If you have any information on the whereabouts of Floyd call Beckley Police at (304) 256-1720.
