FOX NEWS Updated December 20th 2013: Nearly six years after an Egyptian-born man allegedly gunned down his two teenage daughters in Texas, the manhunt for Yaser Abdel Said continues. FBI officials say Said took his daughters Amina, 18, and Sarah, 17, for a ride in his taxi cab under the guise of taking them to get something to eat on Jan. 1, 2008. He instead took his daughters to a remote area in Irving, Texas, where he allegedly shot them multiple times. And although Said later fled his Dallas-area home with his Egyptian passport and $9,000, Bill Warner a private detective who has worked with the fugitive’s sister-in-law told FoxNews.com he believes Said never made it out of the United States — and could even be behind the wheel of a yellow cab or livery car in New York City.
Yaser Said, who uses multiple aliases and is believed to be either 52 or 56 years old, is known to wear a thick mustache and dark sunglasses, including while indoors. He also prefers Denny’s and IHOP restaurants and is known to carry a weapon with him at all times, according to Said’s FBI wanted poster. Said, of Sinai, Egypt, has passports from the United States and his country of birth. He has ties to New York and Texas. FBI officials in Dallas and New York told FoxNews.com that the hunt for Yaser Said is ongoing.
