Two small monkeys that went missing from the Dallas Zoo were found inside a closet in an abandoned home, the latest in a string of mysterious incidents at the zoo this month.
The Dallas Police Department said Tuesday that it received a tip that the emperor tamarin monkeys were inside a home in Lancaster, Texas, a city roughly 16 miles south of Dallas. Police said the place was empty except for the monkeys. No arrests have been made.
The monkeys were back at the zoo Tuesday, a day after they went missing. “We are thrilled beyond belief,” said Kari Streiber, a spokeswoman for the Dallas Zoo.
The two monkeys only weigh about 1 pound each, the report explains.
The Dallas Police Department shared a photo of one of the monkeys, along with the following announcement on Facebook Tuesday:
Dallas Police, with the help of the Lancaster Police Department, located the two missing tamarin monkeys from the Dallas Zoo at an abandoned home in Lancaster.
Pictured is one of the animals still inside the closet of the house. The monkeys have been returned to the zoo.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Dallas Police Department had posted a photo of the suspect:
Dallas Police are looking for the public’s help in identifying the pictured individual. Detectives are looking to speak with the man in regard to the two missing tamarin monkeys missing from the Dallas Zoo. Anyone with information on the pictured individual, or in the case is asked to call 214-671-4509.
