COHOES, N.Y. - A Cohoes woman is asking people in the are ato keep an eye out for her missing pet parrot.
Cathy Komertz says her parrot, named Pete, has been missing for more than a month. She says he went missing after he somehow became scared and flew out her back porch window.
Since that day, Komertz says Pete's been spotted on Peebles Island, in Maplewood, and Watervliet, but there has been little word since.
And since Pete's been by her side for 24 years, she considers him much more than a companion.
"He is a member of my family," says Komertz, "I've had him 24 years, ever since he was a baby, and I miss him terrible."
In Pete's absence, Komertz has picked up a new bird who she named Homer. But she is offering a $1,000 reward leading to her beloved parrot's return.
