An Amber Alert has been issued for a 2-year-old Sacramento girl abducted by her father on Sunday.
Without releasing much detail, FBI agents said in a press release that the circumstances of her abduction lead them to believe that the life of the little girl, Madeline Samaan-Fay, may in jeopardy. The statewide alert was issued this afternoon.
According to the FBI, the child, Madeline Layla Samaan-Fay, was taken by her father, Mourad "Moni" Samaan, 49, a United States citizen born in Egypt. He is 5-feet, 6-inches tall and weighs 160 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. Samaan is known to drive a dark green 1998 Toyota 4-Runner with California license plate 3XRM111.
Madeline is described as 2 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing 28 pounds. She has curly brown hair and brown eyes.
"In spite of extraordinary efforts by our field agents and local law enforcement, we have been unable to develop any leads on the whereabouts of the child or her father since this Saturday," said Special Agent in Charge Herbert M. Brown.
The public is asked to call (916) 481-9110 with any leads.
