The mother of a 9-year-old girl from the northern city of Safed who has been missing since Sunday pleads for her daughter to be found.

“It seems her disappearance was planned. Help us find her,” Benchi Kasau tells the Kan public broadcaster. “I ask the public, please help us.”

Haymanut Kasau was last seen in security footage at 7:45 p.m. on Sunday handing out municipal election leaflets outside the Jewish Agency absorption center, where she has lived for the past three years since immigrating with her family from Ethiopia.

Every room and area of the absorption center have now been thoroughly searched, with large numbers of police and volunteers joining the hunt for the child, Kan reports.
