    LISTEN: 911 Call Released From Day Zahra Baker Was Reported Missing

    Hickory, NC -- Police in released the 911 call in which a father calls to report his 10-year-old daughter has gone missing -- and has possibly been kidnapped.

    In the nearly 5 minute call on Oct. 9, Adam Baker talks about how a fire was set at his house the day before and theorizes that a group of kidnappers, who left a ransom note for his bosses daughter, had instead taken his daughter, Zahra.

    Since the call 10 days ago, police say that Zahra Baker's stepmother has admitted to forging the ransom note. She is charged with obstruction of justice and police are now pursuing the case as a homicide investigation.

    Mattress being tested for link to missing girl
    October 27, 2010 12:55 PM
    McClatchy News Service
    HICKORY — Employees at a Lenoir landfill on Tuesday discovered a mattress they say may have belonged to Zahra Baker, police said, possibly providing a breakthrough in the nearly three-week search for the missing 10-year-old girl.

    Workers were grading the Foothills Environmental Landfill when they uncovered a mattress, which investigators said matches the description of the one used by Zahra.

    Investigators last week called the mattress a key piece of evidence they said might help them establish an accurate timeline for Zahra’s disappearance — and might yield DNA evidence.

    Police said they turned over the mattress to the State Bureau of Investigation for testing.

    Investigators unsuccessfully combed the landfill for three days last week. Officials said the Zahra’s parents disposed of her mattress just days before reporting her missing Oct. 9.

    Hickory police Deputy Chief Clyde Deal said Tuesday the discovery is a potentially significant moment in the case, but he would not elaborate.
    Authorities are calling the case a homicide. The girl, who used a prosthetic leg due to bone cancer, has not been seen alive in public since Sept. 25, they said.

    Police jailed Zahra’s stepmother, Elisa Baker, 42, saying she admitted writing a fake ransom note. The girl’s father, Adam Baker, 33, was jailed on Monday on charges unrelated to Zahra’s disappearance. He faces one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and failure to return rental property, two counts of communicating threats and five counts of writing worthless checks, authorities said.

    Police confirmed that Elisa Baker is assisting them in the investigation. Authorities took her from jail on Tuesday to at least one of the areas where about 40 investigators were searching, Deal said.

    Deal wouldn’t say why Elisa Baker has chosen to cooperate or whether she has confessed to any crimes.

    “I will not say what our conversation involved,” Deal said.

    The Hickory Police Department released a statement saying Elisa Baker’s attorneys Lisa Dubs and Scott Reilly had also provided information.
    Neither Dubs nor Reilly could be reached for comment. The Associated Press contributed.
    Now that there's actual evidence, step-mom is cooperating. Now it'll be a race to see which "parent" can beat the death penalty by ratting the other out.

    Gossip around here from people who claim to know people is that she was found in the mattress, but they haven't released that info yet. Don't know how reliable that is, if it is at all.

    And, they're digging in the parents' back yard. Sounds like the wicked stepmother is turning on the dad. And where did he get the money to post bond??

    Police Find Missing NC Girl's Prosthetic Leg

    (Oct. 27) -- Authorities in North Carolina said today they have found a prosthetic leg that they believe belonged to Zahra Clare Baker, the 10-year-old disabled girl who is missing and feared slain.

    Hickory police made the announcement today during a late-afternoon media briefing at police headquarters. According to Hickory Police Maj. Clyde Deal, the prosthetic leg was found in a "brushy area" at a search site off of Christie Road.

    While authorities are not yet certain the leg is Zahra's, Deal said it is "consistent with what Zahra's would be like." Authorities are trying to match the serial number on the leg to hospital records to see if it is a match to the one that was fitted for the hearing-impaired girl, who lost her leg to bone cancer, WRAL reported

    Meanwhile, the Raleigh News-Observer reported that investigators have returned to the Baker home and are digging in the backyard. Authorities are not yet commenting on what prompted the sudden search.

    These latest developments come just one day after authorities found a discarded mattress in a Caldwell County landfill that they believe could belong to Zahra. They also suspect the mattress holds evidence that could be relevant to the case, police said.

    "This mattress possessed DNA evidence that will be tested in the future to confirm if it is involved with this investigation," Hickory police said in a statement to AOL News.

    Zahra's father, Adam Baker, told police he last saw his daughter sleeping in her bed about 2:30 a.m. Oct. 9. He said that he and his wife slept in that Saturday morning and did not notice Zahra was missing until about 2 p.m.

    During the investigation, specially trained dogs detected the scent of human remains on property belonging to Baker and Zahra's stepmother, Elisa Baker. Dogs also detected similar scents during a recent search of property that reportedly belongs to a tree services company that employed Zahra's father for about the past six months, according to the Hickory Daily Record.

    On Monday, authorities arrested Adam Baker on charges unrelated to her disappearance. According to North Carolina media reports, Baker faces one count of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of failure to return rental property, two counts of communicating threats and five counts of writing worthless check.

    Earlier this month, Elisa Baker was charged with obstruction of justice in the case after she allegedly wrote a fake ransom note to confuse authorities. The stepmother had previously been arrested on charges unrelated to the child's disappearance. Those charges include writing fraudulent checks, larceny and failure to appear.

    No one has been charged in connection with Zahra's disappearance, and Elisa Baker says she had nothing to do with it.

    Investigators said Tuesday that Baker and her attorneys have been "providing information" to police.

    "This information and all other leads are being followed up by the investigation team," Hickory Police said in a statement to AOL News.

    Deal has declined to elaborate on what prompted Elisa Baker to talk with police or what information she has provided to them.

    When asked during today's news conference if the stepmother had led police to the location of the prosthetic leg, Deal replied, "I cannot comment on that at this time," according to Gather.com.

    Elisa Baker is being held on a $65,000 bond. Adam Baker posted $7,000 bond late this afternoon and was released from the Catawba County Jail, the Hickory newspaper said. He is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 18.

    ^^ Me,too. I try not to judge before we have all of the facts, but it's impossible to not hate these people. Whether they killed her or not (and I think they did) they are still disgusting pieces of garbage.

    Police say bone found in western NC being tested for possible tie to missing 10-year-old girl

    6:10 p.m. EDT, November 3, 2010




    HICKORY, N.C. (AP) — Police in Hickory say they've recovered a bone that may be related to the case of a missing 10-year-old girl.

    A police statement issued Wednesday said the bone is being sent to the state medical examiner's office to see if it's linked to Zahra Baker, whose father reported her missing Oct. 9. The bone was recovered in neighboring Caldwell County, where the family lived until mid-September.

    Police have already found a prosthetic leg identified as Zahra's.

    Authorities say they believe the girl is dead. No one is charged in her disappearance.

    The girl's stepmother, 42-year-old Elisa Baker, is jailed on an obstruction of justice charge. Police say she admitted writing a bogus ransom note found at the scene of a fire in the family's backyard on the day Zahra was reported missing.
