Breaking News: 3-Year-Old Missing From San Antonio Playground


Breaking News out of San Antonio Texas is that a 3-year-old toddler has gone missing from her apartment complex’s playground yesterday around 6 pm. Reports show that the girl’s mother left the girl with others at the park but when she returned the child was nowhere to be found. As they passed the 24-hour mark, police are now worried that this is an abduction.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said his department was “sparing no assets, no resource, to try to find” Lina Sardar Khil, who was last seen Monday at 5 p.m. on a playground inside the apartment complex grounds in the 9400 block of Fredericksburg Road on San Antonio’s northwest side.

“This goes on for 24 hours a day, what we’re doing right now,” McManus said. “And we will continue this until, hopefully, we find Lina. But we are not stopping at the end of the shift. This will be continuous.”

An AMBER Alert was issued late Monday night after the girl had been missing for several hours.

There were other children and adults in the playground area at the time of the disappearance. McManus said police had identified most of those people and we’re working to finish that process.

Police say they are going door-to-door at the apartment complex. Police also were seeking any video feeds available that could show who was on the property Monday afternoon.

“We are not stopping at the end of a shift. This will be continuous” until the 3-year-old is found, McManus said. “We’re not waiting for others.  We have a command bus. We will do this for the long haul if necessary.”

Watch

The child’s father told the TV station that the family initially thought Lina may have left the playground with another Afghan family but now believes she may have been abducted.

“During our entire lives we have not been as saddened as we were yesterday and today,” Khil told the TV station Tuesday, speaking through a translator.

Lina was last seen wearing a red dress, black jacket and black shoes and had her brown hair in a ponytail, police said. Authorities are asking anyone who has information on the case to call SAPD Missing Person’s Unit at 210-207-7660.
