IT WAS a case of Return to Sender for Elvis impersonator Vince Citrano when he got his pet parrot Lulu back after she'd been missing for more than a month.
Vince, 47, of Lancaster Road, St Albans, thanked the Herts Advertiser for publishing a story about his beloved bird two weeks ago.
He said: "I got Lulu back though Rom DeCruz who saw the story in the paper and contacted me."
Rom, 54, of The Crescent, Bricket Wood, said: "I spotted Lulu at Maryland Convent in St Albans about a week after she went missing. She seemed quite tame but very subdued, nervous and thin."

He said: "Lulu is only a year old and we had her from a baby. She is part of our family and we all missed her desperately. She is an Elvis fan although can't do any of the numbers yet."
She can wolf whistle though and say "Ciao, hello, goodbye" and calls the names of Vince's two children - Rosa, aged 21, and Guiseppe, 19.
Lulu escaped when Vince was cleaning out her cage on September 13 and she flew out of an open patio door.
He said: "Lulu recognised me straightaway and came and perched on my shoulder. I think she's pleased to be home and we are all delighted to have her back safe and sound."
Vince also extended thanks to Liz Jakeman, an animal welfare officer for St Albans District Council who gave him a great deal of help and support during his search.
