“Anyone who sees or locates the monkey is asked not to approach, attempt to catch, or come in contact with the monkey. Please call 911 immediately,” troopers tweeted.
Several monkeys escaped after the crash between the pick-up and a rubbish truck but as of Saturday morning only one remained unaccounted for, officials said.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission and other agencies searched for it amid freezing weather.
