Thomas M. Redbutte is cooperating with investigators and has not heard from his son since before the orangutan’s disappearance, Platt said. The two share a home on the Upper West Side.

“What we know at this hour is that an orangutan is missing from the zoo and that qualified people are doing everything they can to bring it in safely and without incident. This is not supposed to be a dangerous animal, but rather an older fellow who’d prefer to be home in bed. That said, it is at heart a wild creature, and we are going to find it,” Platt said.
