Her father was just arrested.
The father of 3-year-old Zaela Walker was arrested Saturday in connection with her August disappearance.
Ricky Beasley, 27, was charged with first-degree kidnapping and child abuse or neglect, as well as traffic-related charges, according to a release from the North Las Vegas Police Department on Monday.
Las Vegas Police arrested Beasley and Zaela’a mother, 27-year-old Lakeia Walker, after they received a tip that the girl’s parents were at a local casino, located near Civic Center Drive and Cheyenne Avenue. Walker was released and is reportedly cooperating with police.
Authorities did not release much information about the case as it is still an active investigation, police said on Tuesday.
Zaela was reported missing by her grandmother, Carla Richardson, in August. Police officially announced the toddler is missing on Friday when she was not with her parents, who the Zaela was last seen with. An Amber Alert was not issued because there is no evidence Zaela was abducted or in danger, police said.
But Zaela is still missing and has not been seen in three months.
