Chilling New Netflix Drama 'The Search' Will Be Your Next True Crime Obsession

Chilling New Netflix Drama 'The Search' Will Be Your Next True Crime Obsession

Netflix has released a new true crime drama based on the true story of a little girl who was tragically found dead in her bedroom after a nine-day police search.

The series, named The Search, tells the story of Paulette Gebara Farah - a four-year-old Mexican girl with a number of learning disabilities who appeared to vanish overnight.

When Paulette disappeared in 2010, the community came together and began a tireless search to find her.

Paulette's mum, Lizette Farah, claimed she had put her little girl to bed that evening as normal - but because the four-year-old went missing in the middle of the night, police found it very difficult to find a lead.

When Paulette's nanny, Ericka, came into her room the next morning, the little girl was nowhere to be seen, but there were no signs of forced entry in the house or any indication that a struggle had taken place.

CCTV cameras which surrounded the property failed to show the child leaving or being taken and neither of the two family dogs had made any noise during the night, which could have indicated a disturbance.

The search sparked a great deal of public interest, with many placing the blame on Paulette's mum and dad, Mauricio Gebara.

A week later and suspicions reached fever pitch when Alberto Bazbaz, the Attorney General of Mexico announced Paulette's parents and nannies were in custody.

It came to light that the statements of each didn't seem to quite align. Days later and officials raided the house to find Paulette's body under blankets at the end of the bed.

Police came to the conclusion that Paulette had rolled over during her sleep and fallen into a gap between the end of the bed and the mattress, causing her to tragically suffocate.

Records state her death was an accident, but it remains a very controversial case.
