I just spoke to a woman named Kelsey who reported her rare African Sulcata Tortoise missing in the Parchment area. Her message showed the urgency of the situation:

Hi Mark this is Kelsey we just spoke about the tortoise- Spike.
We live in parchment on Oakcreek Ave off of Brook Dr. and Random Rd. in the Mt. Olivet area. Spike went missing sometime yesterday between 12:30pm / 1ish and 5-5:30pm he's an African Sulcata Tortoise that weighs a good thirty pounds and he's about a foot and half long.

As you can see from these pictures, this tortoise is HUGE! Hopefully those looking for him will not have a problem spotting him:

This is such a beautiful creature and clearly a loved member of her family. If you or anyone you know have spotted or find Spike, PLEASE MESSAGE US ON OUR Facebook Page. Or you can message Kelsey on her Facebook page.
