Police believe father abducted girl in Calgary, took her to Iraq

Calgary police are asking for the public’s help to find a child who is believed missing in Iraq after a possible parental abduction.

Zahraa Al Aazawi, 12, travelled from Calgary to Egypt with her father in June 2018. She was scheduled to arrive back in Canada in September 2018, but has not returned to Calgary.

The girl’s father returned to Canada alone last week and was arrested at the Toronto airport.

Police believe the 12-year-old is in Iraq, possibly living with her father’s family.

Investigators are asking for help from the public, particularly members of Calgary’s Iraqi community, to share any information with police so the girl can be returned home.
