Residents in a small Norfolk village are being asked to help in the operation to locate two monkeys last seen in the local cemetery.
The monkeys could find a home at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens
The monkeys are believed to have been illegally imported into the United Kingdom and have escaped in the Northwold area.
The animals were last spotted in Northwold Cemetery, but so far they have managed to evade the people out to catch them.
However, Norfolk County Council Trading Standards are on the trail and are following up all the information passed on by the public.
Stay away warning
Once the monkeys are captured they have been offered a new home at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens.
Steve Holland, head of Norfolk's trading standards, said: "It is extremely important the public do not approach these animals as they may be unpredictable.
"The various agencies involved are working closely together to ensure the matter is concluded as soon as possible."
Trading standards and he Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs are responsible for illegally imported animals.
Anyone who spots the monkeys or knows where they came from can call 01603 224400.
