Owner Sandra has been left distraught yet again after her pet escaped from her home.

Chanel, the African Grey parrot, has gone missing again, over a year after she famously flew away.

The parrot's owner, Sandra, has pleaded with people in the Liverpool area to keep an eye out for her beloved pet.

Sandra went viral in April of last year after a video of her shouting after Chanel, who had flown away, was viewed online millions of times.

In a video posted on her social media, Sandra explained that the African Grey had flown off again, explaining: "Chanel flew off again.

"Please, she definitely went on the canal somewhere... I don’t know what to do but if anyone sees her, you know what she’s like."

She apologised to her followers for "doing this again", but that she "feels sick" with worry.

Sandra appeared on This Morning, where she told hosts Eamonn and Ruth about Chanel's latest escape.

Breaking down in tears, Sandra explained that Chanel escaped after her son left the door to the house open.

She said that she saw Chanel fly towards the canal, which they live very close to.

Through tears, Sandra explained that she was so worried about the parrot as back in April 2020, she returned home a day later, whereas this time it has been three days with no sign of her.

She told Eamonn and Ruth: "She's so tame and she'll be so scared now.

"She'll just be wanting to get anywhere safe. If anyone sees her, take a picture because we've been driving around everywhere because we've had so many false things.

"Just take a picture, shout her name and put your hands out, she'll come on you."

Followers of Sandra are hoping for a safe return for Chanel, who was found only two miles from her home last time she took off.
