Zahra Clare BakerHickory, Oct 11, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The police has been searching frantically a North Carolina girl Zahra Clare Baker, 10, who disappeared last Saturday. The law enforcement officials told a reputed media source that Zahra Clare Baker is hearing impaired and with a prosthetic leg. The police now are questioning the girl’s parents and especially her step-mother as they collected a video near their home and even used dogs to search the whole neighborhood in search of the girl.

The police has declined to comment if Elisa Baker has an attorney. The Baker family was not available for any comments. The police issued a statement where it was stated that everyone of them are concerned about the well being of Zahra Clare Baker and hope that she would return home safe and “unharmed”. However, the police chief has also said that it is unlikely that the girl left the home by herself.
