Five of the 15 monkeys that escaped a facility in Polk County have been captured, officials said.

Lex Salisbury, the director of the preserve, said Monday that the capture of the remaining 10 monkeys is imminent because trappers know where they are living.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the monkeys apparently escaped their island home by swimming across a pond -- something they're not supposed to be able to do.

The monkeys escaped April 19 at the soon-to-be-open Safari Wild preserve.

Officials said the social but calm Patas monkeys are of no threat to people.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the search will continue until the remaining monkeys are captured.
