Authorities are asking for the public's help in locating a 1-pound monkey stolen from the Palm Beach Zoo Monday night.

According to the Palm Beach Police Department, the rare Goeldi's monkey named Kali was taken from its enclosure Monday, and needs medication and a very specialized diet.

Goeldi's monkeys are native to South America, specifically the Amazon rainforest, and are considered a vulnerable species. Kali was one of five in an enclosure at the zoo, reports WPEC. Images from a security camera show a figure near the enclosure early Monday morning, reports the station.

Authorities say the monkey could fetch as much as $10,000 on the black market.
