NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a blind white-handed gibbon is missing from the primate exhibit at the Naples Zoo.

The Naples Daily News (https://bit.ly/2goWqwF ) reports zoo officials believe the female ape may have wandered into the water and drowned. Divers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are searching the water for the ape.

The zoo remains open to the public, but boats are not running because divers are in the water.

Discounted admissions are being given Monday because Primate Island is shut down.

No further details were immediately available.
