    Officials at a Massachusetts zoo are searching for one of their storks after it flew away on Friday.

    Stone Zoo officials said "Las", a white-bellied stork, was training for the Masters of Flight: Birds of Prey show when it flew away from the Stoneham facility.

    The 3-foot-tall bird was last seen Saturday morning at nearby Spot Pond.

    Las has a white belly, dark iridescent purple wings, neck and back, and a featherless face and long legs. The bird has a wingspan of about 3 feet.
