When the owner of Hawaiian Rumble Mini Golf arrived at his business Sunday morning he learned his cockatoo, Jessy, had been stolen.

Bob Detwiler filed a report with the North Myrtle Beach Police Department, but mostly, he said, he just wants his bird back.

“We’re offering a $1,000 reward if someone can give information that leads to an arrest or a conviction. Or if they just bring her back, they can have the reward, no questions asked,” Detwiler said.

The all-white cockatoo was one of seven parrots that can been seen at the store.

“She was the leader of them all. She had the nicest personality. She would perform for the kids and dance and laugh,” he said of the bird that he’s had for about 15 years.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detwiler at (843) 458-2585.
