The FBI is asking for the public’s help to find missing Madeline Samaan-Fay, from Sacramento.
Madeline was allegedly taken by her father, Mourad Moni Samann, 49. She was last seen with her dad at a Sacramento Raley’s grocery store on Sunday.
Samann was served with a court order stipulating that Madeline’s mom had been awarded full custody of her. Before that Mourad had shared custody.
Madeline’s mom called authorities on Tuesday when Mourad did not return with Madeline.

Mourad is driving a green Toyota 4Runner, California license plate 3XRM111. He is 5’6″ tall, 10 pounds, black hair and brown eyes and is fluent in Spanish. He was born in Egypt and is a U.S. Citizen.
Madeline is 2’8″ tall, 28 pounds with brown hair and eyes.
