The search continues for a two-tear-old girl who was kidnapped from her home in Sacramento. A statewide Amber Alert was issued Friday for Madeline Layla Samaan-Fay.
Police say she was abducted by her father, 49-year-old Mourad Samaan, who goes by Moni.
Investigators say Samaan was supposed to drop off Madeline at her mother's house Sunday.
When the mother hadn't seen Madeline by Tuesday, she called police. Samaan's neighbors say the couple has an ongoing custody dispute over Madeline, but are surprised he would just disappear.
"Moni's been a very good father, and I don't think he would ever harm his child ever, not from what I've seen. He loves that girl," said John Peckham the neighbor of the suspect.
The two are believed to be traveling in Samaan's dark green 1998 Toyota 4 Runner with California license plate: 3XRM111.
