But Bob turned up in a garden in Mexia, Alabama, and was handed to an animal shelter when he refused to fly away.
Carers bought him food, scanned his microchip and realised he belonged to 60-year-old Alan, of Gateshead, Tyne and Wear.
Alan, who confirmed his identity via a Zoom call, said: “I couldn’t believe it.
"He’s looking thin but OK for what he’s gone through. I can’t wait to get him back.”
Bob had set off from Guernsey on June 11 and was supposed to race the 380 miles homes in a day.
Married dad-of-two Alan, who keeps 120 pigeons, wonders if Bob ended up on a ship.4Bob travelled the Atlantic Ocean all the way to the USA READ MORE UK NEWSGLITCH IN THE MATRIX Man uncovers 'secret lair' UNDER train station in jaw-dropping findGORY END Yoga teacher, 23, found dead in Ritz bath as cops hunt phone with 'chilling texts'
He added: “When pigeons go missing, you worry they’ve been killed by an animal, or wonder if someone’s stolen them.”
Animal shelter worker Megan Bryan, 32, said it had been contacted by an elderly homeowner.
She added: “We thought the bird must have been sold from the UK but we didn’t realise it could have flown from there.
"When we showed Bob to Alan he was cooing and cocking his head trying to look at him — he definitely knew him.”Most read in The US SunMONEY IS COMING Deadline to claim $500 direct monthly payments closes in TWO DAYSHAIR SCARE Kylie flaunts REAL hair with no extensions in rare pic & fans are concernedNAME SHAME The View host Whoopi Goldberg FORGETS co-host's name in awkward on-air momentMOM AGAIN?
