Portland Police are investigating an apparent birdnapping in East Portland.

The owners of the Derbyan named "Josey" say he was taken from his cage outside a home on E. Burnside near 151st Ave. sometime between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Josey can speak a few words, but apparently cannot call for help.

If you can help police identify Josey's suspected abductor, call the non-emergency line at (503) 823-3333 or provide it by email to CrimeTips@PortlandOregon.gov, reference case number 13-69771.
