Topeka Zoo director Brendan Wiley, in a news release issued Sunday, said a gray-necked Wood Rail bird appears to be missing from the rain forest of the zoo. The bird, whose name is Ty, hatched in the rain forest this past summer. Ty was soon pulled from the exhibit and hand-raised by zoo staff members, so it is comfortable around people, Wiley said.

Wiley said a search of the rain forest, zoo grounds and surrounding areas have revealed no sign of the bird. Zoo staff members would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the bird in the past few days or knows of its whereabouts.

Any information regarding the bird can be relayed to the zoo.
