From a Washington Post story by Praveena Somasundaram headlined “Missing Dallas Zoo monkeys found inside a closet at Texas home, police say”:

Police found two emperor tamarin monkeys in a house about 15 miles from the Dallas Zoo on Tuesday, nearly 36 hours after the animals were reported missing, law enforcement officials said in a statement.

The monkeys have been returned to the zoo and will be checked by veterinarians, according to zoo officials.

Police found the monkeys in a closet at the Lancaster, Tex., home around 5 p.m. Dallas and Lancaster officers were responding to a tip that the animals might have been abandoned at the house, police said. No one was home when the monkeys were found, they added.
