Go back to all the people, organisations on a weekly basis, asking for news and reminding them that you are still looking.

Now here's a couple of paranoid but important warnings
~ Do not give out the full ring number to anyone thinking a found bird might be theirs ... edit about half of it out as only finder and owner should know it all.
~Never arrange to meet any caller alone ... better safe than sorry and another person can be a great help in remembering anything said that might help.
~Don't give out your address ... there are unscrupulous folk who might tempt you out just to burgle you.
Sorry for including these but they have to be considered in this sometimes awful world we now live in.

Potty's Mum (Debs - our Lost and Found Co-ordinator) adds this excellent advice:
If you have lost a bird or had one stolen or found one, the following link takes you to the Parrot Magazine home page.
http://www.parrotmag.com/
If you click the "Lost and Found" link on the left hand side, you will be taken to the active lost, found and stolen register maintained by John Hayward at the National Theft Register.

Potty's Mum also found out about the Independent Bird Register:
https://www.parrot-link.co.uk/topic/3884-no-subject/
where you can register your bird's details at any time (before a loss for instance) and also acts as a lost/Found register

There is also this excellent advice from an American site which might prove useful in your recovery.

ABOVE ALL, WE WISH YOU A SPEEDY RECOVERY OF YOUR BIRD AND HAVE OUR FINGERS FIRMLY CROSSED FOR YOU

and there is ALWAYS hope ... SUCCESSFUL REUNIONS!:
