‘My nan and pop now retired and are travelling Australia, and their 2016 ford ranger was stolen last night from Norman Gardens, Rockhampton,’ Ms Comrie wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.

‘The car is a 2016 White Ford Ranger with a white canopy with 4 roof racks and black TJM bull bar. NSW white plate Rego DFL04S. Please keep an eye out for it. We are really concerned for the bird.’

Mr Harrison was distraught when Dolly was stolen, having looked after her for more than a decade.    

‘We have had her for 12 years, they are monogamous and she has mated with me so she won’t have anything to do with anybody else,’ Mr Harrison told 7News.

‘I know she’ll be stressing and won’t be eating. Being my mate for the past 12 years, she’s everything to me,’ he said.

On Wednesday evening, Ms Comrie updated her post to share the news that Dolly had been found. 

‘I knew you’d be hungry,’ a delighted Mr Harrison said to the bird as the pair were reunited. 

The car is still yet to be located.
