MP of the week: Yousef Almetnawy

This week’s featured missing person is Yousef Almetnawy, who was four years old when he and his sister Iman, age one, were abducted by their mother from Euless, Texas on August 25, 1999.

Disturbingly, the children and their mother, Ghada Abdel Said, may be on the run with Ghada’s brother, Yaser Abdel Said, who is wanted for a double murder: he allegedly shot and killed his two teenage daughters, Sarah and Amina, in 2008.

    I looked up the story of Sarah and Amina. Such a sad and senseless crime. I read about eight stories and none of them mentioned his sister, niece or nephew hiding out with him. Since they disappeared so long before Amina and Sarah were killed, I wonder what evidence exists to show they might be together. I truly hope that they are not with that monster.

    I guess they all went back to Egypt

      If they did I haven’t heard anything about it. I think the authorities would know if they had left the country under their own names.

        They lived in Texas, it would be easy for them to cross the border to Mexico, and from there it would be difficult for them to go back to Egypt, maybe under alias ? I just figured, it would be difficult for them, especially for Yaser Abdel, who were not rich and had limit connections out of a few relatives in US, could stay in US so long without being caught.

    One of the saddest family abduction cases for sure. I hope this will be resolved someday. As many family abduction cases show, even after 30 years they can be.

    They’ve both been found in Egypt. Apparently they crossed to Canada first, then left from there. They currently have no idea where their uncle is.

      Thanks for that update, Annie!

      Even they knew where their uncle is, I don’t think they will tell us
