Lina Khil to be featured on national missing persons show

Lina was last seen on the playground at her apartment complex in San Antonio on December 20, 2021.

SAN ANTONIO — Lina Sardar Khil, who has been missing from San Antonio for more than nine months, will be featured in a national show about missing children.

She will be featured in a segment airing on In Pursuit with John Walsh Wednesday September 21 at 8 p.m. (c) on Investigation Discovery. It will also stream the next day on Discovery +. The show typically highlights fugitives on the run and missing children.

Lina was last seen on the playground at her apartment complex in San Antonio on December 20, 2021. The now 4-year-old wandered out of her mother’s sight and disappeared. Lina was 3-years-old at the time of her disappearance. She's 4 feet tall and weighs 55 pounds. She was wearing a red dress, black jacket, and black shoes when she went missing. Lina is originally from Afghanistan so she may only speak Pashto. 

Last month, San Antonio police told KENS 5 in May that her case has not gone cold and tips are still coming in.

If you have any information about the child's disappearance, the Missing Person Unit's phone number is 210-207-7660. They answer the phone 24 hours a day.   

Tips can be anonymous.
