    Mourad Samaan and Madeline Layla Samaan-Fay

    The FBI is asking for the public's help in finding a 2-year-old Sacramento girl who has been missing with her father since Sunday.

    FBI agent John Cauthen said Friday that Mourad "Moni" Samaan has partial custody of his daughter but failed to return her to her mother's home over the weekend. The girl's mother recently filed court papers seeking full custody.

    Mourad Samaan, who is 49, is a U.S. citizen born in Egypt. He also speaks Spanish.

    Investigators believe he is somewhere in California. They're asking the public to call law enforcement if they spot Samaan's green Toyota 4Runner, California license plate: 3XRM111.
