The hunt is still on for a beloved community collared dove that has gone missing in a South Norfolk village.
Known as 'Harry', or 'Ringo' to some, the bird started 'harassing' the local postman on St Michael's Road in Long Stratton.
Rumours have been going round social media pages and the local parish as to where the feathered friend has gone.
One publication has claimed the bird has been taken to PACT Animal Sanctuary in Hingham, where it would be prepared for the wild. But this has not been confirmed by founder Christine Rockingham.
It has also been reported that the police are investigating the birds disappearance but a spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary said: 'We are not investigating as there has been no criminal act.'
The £100 reward for the bird's return still stands.
It is illegal to capture wild doves and could result in a £5,000 fine.
