While parents of a missing toddler continue to hold out hope that their daughter will be located, ongoing searches have reportedly been halted because of ongoing harassment as stalkers “take pictures” to post online with “different stories.”
Lina Sardar Khil, daughter of Afghani immigrants Riaz and Zarmeena, went missing in December while playing at a playground in San Antonio, TX. At the time of her disappearance, Lina was three years old. After remaining missing for five months, efforts to track down the now four year old girl are allegedly being obstructed.
Eagles Flight Advocacy & Outreach is a non-profit organization founded to help families of children with special needs through crisis. CEO Pam Allen has been visiting the Khil family every week and has remained an integral part in the search effort to find Lina. However, as she reported to KENS-TV, those searches have been put on hold.
“We have people that are stalking us that go on these searches, that film us, take pictures of us and come up with different stories,” Allen explained adding, “We just don’t want to do those types of searches anymore.”
According to her, there have been so-called “keyboard warriors” making allegations against the Khil family because they hail from the Middle East. “Things directed at them because they’re Afghani and because they’re Muslim,” Allen said of conspiracy theories that included allegations that the Khil’s had sold Lina. “That’s harsh.”
“[Riaz] assisted our military forces when we were [in Afghanistan]…We brought him over here to make sure his family is safe,” she explained before lamenting, “Then this happens.”
Thanks to the help of Project Absentis, another non-profit comprised in part of former FBI agents and intel officers, the search has continued in some capacity. Abel Pena, a private investigator with the organization explained to KENS-TV, “We’re not just looking at the day of but we’re trying to go back a couple of days at least and see what anomalies were out there, perhaps in the neighborhood. Maybe people in the area that people didn’t recognize as being from the area.”
“We’re doing everything pro-bono,” he noted. “We might generate additional leads and be able to get other people to be able to talk to us that don’t feel comfortable talking to law enforcement.”
The parents are currently expecting the birth of their second child, but they are torn in celebrating while they are still fraught with anguish. “Life should always be celebrated,” Allen expressed, “but it’s just so hard for them to celebrate anything when Lina’s missing.”
When asked if he believes there is still hope to find Lina well, Pena replied, “It’s really difficult to say. I want to lean towards being optimistic and lean towards her being alive.”
According to the FBI’s missing person report, Lina is approximately 55 pounds and stands roughly four feet tall. With Brown hair and brown eyes, “She was last seen wearing a black jacket, a red dress, and black shoes. Lina has straight, shoulder-length hair.”
The San Antonio Police Department have asked anyone with information to contact 210-207-7660 and have continued receiving possible leads on the missing person case.
