Primate sightings in Chicago area

Some suburban Chicago residents believe there's some monkeying around going on in their community.

Police in Elgin say there have been at least three reported sightings of what callers said they believed was a monkey or primate of some kind.

Lieutenant Cecil Smith says police have conducted searches in the area themselves but have so far found no signs of a monkey.

Police received the first call reporting the alleged mystery animal on Sunday from a resident of the Buena Vista Apartments on Elgin's southwest side.

Later reports described the same three- to four-foot tall brown and black animal.

Police say they're continuing their search.
