A South Florida man is asking for the public's help to find his missing pet bird.

Stewart Rosenkrantz is a paraplegic and confined to a wheelchair. His two loves are bird-watching and watching birds with his best friend, Poof.

Poof is a 14-year-old green-winged macaw that was last seen Tuesday at the Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray Beach.

Rozenkrantz said as they were heading back to the car, Poof just flew away and hasn't been seen since.

"She probably landed in the water," he said. "She was low and she was screaming for about a half an hour. And I was yelling her name for three hours and nobody saw her."

He spent the day at the park posting fliers and asking people to contact him if they spot her.

"I'm nothing without her," Rosenkrantz said.

Rosenkrantz said Poof is a real celebrity at the park. He said they've been coming to the park for years and everybody knows her.

Anyone who sees Poof is asked to call 754-423-7827.
