Oklahoma woman sought in stabbing of daughter, endangering another

Hafza Hailey

A 7-year-old girl is missing along with the mother, identified by Tulsa police as Taheerah Ahmad, 39.

Hafza is described as having puffy hair in a ponytail wearing an ankle-length peach dress and painted gold bracelets.

The 11-year-old girl is in very critical condition, the police department said Tuesday Monday.

UPDATE 10:47 a.m. PT: Authorities say a 7-year-old girl who was the subject of an Amber Alert in Tulsa has been found safe and her mother is in custody.

The nine-year-old child who escaped the home reportedly told police that Ahmad had stabbed the older child after she "duct taped [the children's] hands, put socks in their mouths".

Police were looking for Taheerah Ahmad and her 7-year-old daughter, and they issued the Amber alert because they believed the daughter was in danger.

By the time police and firefighters responded, the kitchen of the house where the 11-year-old lay bleeding was on fire, and the fire was spreading.

Officer MacKenzie said the two younger children had managed to escape and run to a relative's house for help, but that Ahmad had ultimately managed to abduct her youngest child.

MacKenzie said Monday evening that there was no known history of child abuse or domestic violence in the immediate family.

Ahmad is described as a black female with curly black hair with gold streaks in it.

It's also been reported she could be suffering from mental health illness or drug related problem. She is believed to be driving a black 2005 Lexus RX330, with an Oklahoma paper tag, number UD-4967 or a navy blue 2011 Ford Escape with Oklahoma license tag 778MNX.
