Sydney the Chimp Still On the Loose

Posted April 28, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— There is no sign of Sydney the chimpanzee. He found his way out of the Charlotte zoo last Thursday and has not been seen by zoo officials since.

Sydney is known to have a sweet tooth so, this past weekend, zoo workers scattered M&M candy around the area in an effort to lure Sydney out of hiding.

No luck.

Zoo workers say Sydney has the intelligence of a 5-year-old human and probably knows he's been a very bad boy.
