    Stepmother of missing Hickory girl arrested

    http://www.wral.com/news/news_briefs/story/8429135/

    Posted: 31 minutes ago

    Hickory, N.C. — The stepmother of a missing Hickory girl was arrested Sunday morning on outstanding charges unrelated to the 10-year-old's disappearance.

    Police said details that have emerged in the past 12 hours make it seem less likely that a stranger abducted Zahra Clare Baker, who was reported missing a day earlier by her father, Adam, and stepmother, Elisa.

    Police "deeply concerned" about welfare of missing girl

    Police are continuing their search for a 10-year-old girl who was reported missing at 2 p.m. Saturday. Officers have searched the girl’s northwest Hickory neighborhood with K-9 units but they have not found Zahara Clarie Baker.

    Maria Claxton, of a local search dog team, led her dog behind crime scene tape and throughout the stacks of firewood and brush in the Bakers’ backyard while their pit bulls strained at their leashes and whined. Then she took the dog to the Bakers’ Chevy Suburban and Toyota Celica, into the crawl space under the family’s house and inside the home. The search turned up nothing.

    [snip]

    They were allowed to leave the police station after their interview. During their investigation, officers discovered inconsistencies in the Bakers’ story and the couple has not been ruled out as suspects in their daughter’s disappearance.

    Elisa Baker was arrested at about 10:45 a.m. Sunday on nine unrelated warrants and charges.

    • Six counts of worthless checks in Catawba County
    • Six counts of worthless checks in Caldwell County
    • Failure to return rental property in Caldwell County
    • Larceny by employee in Burke County
    • Failure to appear on three counts of communicating threats in Caldwell County
    • Failure to appear on charges of driving without a license and unsafe tires in Caldwell County

    Police initially suspected that a stranger might have abducted Zahara. New information has surfaced and stranger abduction appears less likely, though no possibilities have been ruled out at this point, said Hickory Police Chief Tom Adkins.

    [snip]

    Zahara’s biological mother is an Australian native and has not seen her daughter since she was about eight months old. She is believed to be in Australia and is not considered a suspect, Whisnant said.

    The more information that comes out, the less likely it sounds like she will be found safely and the more it sounds like the family is involved...


    One thing the chief told NewsChannel 36 is her parents didn't report her missing until two Saturday afternoon because they thought she was sleeping.

    They don't believe she left on her own because she left both hearing aids.

    They also don't think she was abducted by a stranger.

    Another odd coincidence, Police were called to her home around 5 a.m. Saturday for a brush fire in the backyard.

    No one checked at the time to see if Zahra was still sleeping or okay.


    They don't know if it has any connection to her disappearance.

    HICKORY, N.C. -- Hickory Police said they are busy investigating surveillance video taken from several stores near Zhara Baker's home. However, Police Chief Tom Adkins is not saying if you can see Zhara in any of those tapes.
    Police are also investigating a fire that started on the front lawn of Zhara's home, but they're not saying how the fire started, or how it might be related to her Saturday morning disappearance.

    A dozen Hickory police officers went door-to-door throughout Zhara's neighborhood Sunday afternoon, talking to dozens of residents and handing out Zhara's photograph. In addition to knocking on doors, police officers looked into basement windows, and walked deep into the woods.

    ABC news interviewed the father and LE this morning. Looks like a 7 min. video interview. One thing standing out to me was the last time the father saw Zahra was Thursday night. It's the Step-mother reporting a last seen at 2:30am Saturday.

    Heartbreaking. I like the shirt he had on it said vengeance. Well again it's looking like the step mom did something with her. Ugh.What a charming, beautiful little girl.

    Ransom note found at missing girl's Hickory home

    Adkins said a ransom note and other evidence were found at the house but wouldn’t elaborate. A reporter saw what appeared to be remnants of clothes among burned branches from the fire at the scene.

    Adkins said the father was cooperating with police, but Elisa Baker wasn’t.
