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

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

No luck.

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