    NV - NV - Zaela Walker, 2, North Las Vegas, August 2018 *Arrest*

    [​IMG]

    NORTH LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- North Las Vegas police have asked the public for help in locating a 2-year-old girl who was reported missing in August 2018.

    Officers were called to the 4600 block of Mission Cantina Avenue on Aug. 25 in regards to a missing child, North Las Vegas police said. Zalea Walker was reportedly last seen with her parents, Lakeia Walker, 27, and Ricky Beasley, 27, in North Las Vegas.


    On Nov. 17, Texas Department of Public Safety officers came into contact with the parents, but Zalea was not with them, police said. Both Walker and Beasley said they did not know where their daughter was and were uncooperative with law enforcement.

    Detectives with North Las Vegas police are looking for any information on Zalea's whereabouts. Police said they were hopeful the girl was left in the care "of an unknown associate of Lakeia and Ricky in the Las Vegas Valley."

    North Las Vegas police searching for 2-year-old reported missing in August

    This is weird. Hopefully Zalea is safe.

    Thanks @Niner and @katydid23 for this very informative thread. There are several Trials I would like to follow. Having them in one location keeps them very handy for those of us who don't always keep good notes.

    Rock Stars is a very good description for the two of you!
