Sprite the parrot has gone missing - leaving her feathery partner devastated.
Sprite, a conure type parrot, flew off from her home in Bridgepool close in Hartlepool’s Central Estate on Friday.
However, her departure has left her partner Huw devastated and he’s also off his food.
Carlie Bennett, Sprite’s owner is urging people to check their gardens for signs of the bird.
She said: “Sprite is like a member of our family. Her little friend here Huw is off his food and frantically calling and looking for her. It’s so sad to have to watch him.”
