Now, we can't find her.

She must be hiding

somewhere in the park.

Weirdest thing.

Right after the lady

tossed the kid,

the whole zoo lost power.

We can't see sh*t.

FEMALE OFFICER:
All we got is emergency

power from the backup gennies.

That's why

we called for Special Ops.

We need you guys to find her.
