Details of Disappearance

Machael was abducted by her non-custodial father, Abdulbaset Ahmed Mohammed Al-Omary. Her mother, Margaret McClain (sometimes given as "McClains"), dropped her off for visitation with Abdulbaset on August 12, 1997. The next day, Abdulbaset told his wife, Machael's stepmother, that he was taking Machael to Memphis, Tennessee for the day. They apparently never returned.

McClain claims to have received two telephone calls from Abdulbaset on August 14, the day he was supposed to return Machael. He told her that he and Machael were in Saudi Arabia and he would not return Machael until McClain agreed to drop all court actions and claims of child support against him, and allow him to have full custody of the child. McClain was allowed to talk to her her daughter for a few minutes. She says she never heard from Machael or Abdulbaset again.

An international parental kidnapping warrant was issued for Abdulbaset on August 20, 1997. Machael and Abdulbaset are thought to be in Saudi Arabia; he has relatives in the cities of Jeddah and Riyadh. They may also have traveled to Sweden. Her case remains unsolved.
