Animal Control said the pet marmoset monkey that escaped from its owner Friday morning was found.

Police said the monkey was last seen near the Pizza Inn on East Main Street.

The monkey is a small female and is wearing a pink and white camo belly band. She may try to get into vehicles or cars because she is afraid of being outside alone.

Just before 11:30 a.m. our crew at the scene said Animal Control had located the monkey and was working to get her down from a tree. At 11:35 a.m. our crew at the scene said the monkey had been rescued.
