Come back home, Sunny! The Virginia Zoo has deployed a drone in the search for Sunny, its missing red panda.

This morning, as part of an ongoing search, the zoo used an unmanned aircraft to aerially observe an “area of interest” behind its Asian animal exhibits, according to a press release from the City of Norfolk, where the Virginia Zoo is located.

The city says the drone-captured footage is currently under review. The search for Sunny will continue internally with volunteers and staff; the zoo has not yet kicked off any public search parties.
