Hamilton cops hunt for missing girl, 10
Police are appealing for help finding a 10-year-old girl who went missing from Waterdown.
Sara Anne Linklater recently moved from the Sudbury area to live in Smithville, near Grimsby. Mountain Staff Sergeant Bob Watts said while at an event at Parkside High School, she reportedly drove away in a car around 2:30 p.m.
Less than an hour later, the car was found abandoned at Guelph Line and the QEW in Burlington.
Police said Sara ‘looks and behaves older than she is.”
Foul play is not suspected in her disappearance. But police said she is considered a high risk because of her age.
He said Sara was relatively new to the area and may be trying to hitch hike north to visit relatives and friends in Sudbury, Sault Ste. Marie or Manitoulin Island.
“We are looking for any information from someone who may have seen her that could give us a clue,” said Watts.
Hamilton police have notified First Nations police and the OPP that she could be coming to their area.
Sara is described as native with a dark complexion, black hair kept in a pony tail. She was wearing a black tank top, flared blue jeans and white running shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to call their local police service or Hamilton police at 905-546-3886 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
