According to a tweet from Sgt. Robert Fierros, Nogales PD, the 49-year-old Benji ran away from her home in the Iron Gates area of Nogales on Tuesday, Sept. 27. Benji is hard of hearing and should not be touched if found, according to Sgt. Fierros. She may bite. 

Anyone who spots the monkey should call the Nogales Police Department at 520-287-9111.

Her owner hopes that she is found OK.
