Birdnapped! Can you help find Alex, stolen parrot with serious medical condition?

There has been a birdnapping on Bannock Street.

Carlos Botran was in a meeting on September 6 at PivotPoint, a web and graphic design business at 1150 Bannock Street, when he believes someone came through the front door and took Alex, a 25-year-old African Grey Parrot who lived at the office and has been in business partner Kody Simmons's family for years.
