HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Police say two buffaloes that escaped captivity and roamed a central Arkansas city last week remain unaccounted for.

Hot Springs Cpl. Sonia Luzader said Monday that police called off the search over the weekend and there hasn’t been any reported sighting of the animals since the herd escaped Thursday. She says the owner was still looking for the buffaloes.

Police believed the 2,000-pound animals remained within city limits last week but said Monday that their location is unknown. The six buffaloes escaped from a nearby farm and spent Thursday running through neighborhoods and eluding authorities.

One of the animals was hit by a car and three were tranquilized.

Hot Springs is a popular tourist spot with natural hot springs, a national park and horse track.
