    According to the FBI, they believe that the two children could be with their father, Ahmed Abdalla Taha Kandil, leaving the United States on a flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport, in New York, bound for Boryspil, Ukraine, and then Ataturk, Turkey.

    The photos above of the children are age-progressed to show how they would look now. At the time, Amina was ten-years-old and her brother Belel was eight-years-old.

    They may be living in the Alexandria, Cairo or Giza areas of Egypt, or in the Hatay region of Turkey.

    Amina is described as a white girl, with blue eyes and brown hair. At the time of her disappearance, she was approximately 5’2” tall and weighed approximately 82 pounds. Amina was born on September 1, 2003, in Augusta, Georgia.

    Belel is described as a white boy, with blue eyes and blond hair. At the time of his disappearance, he was approximately 4’5” tall and weighed approximately 55 pounds. Belel was born on January 4, 2006, in Augusta, Georgia.

    Inside The FBI: Missing Children's Cases
    (Start about 11:25 into the video for Amina and Belel's case)



    From the transcript, available at Inside the FBI: Missing Children's Cases — FBI:

    [...]

    Parental kidnappings can happen within the U.S., but they get more complicated when a mom or dad takes their child overseas. That parent may think they’ve evaded the grasp of American law, but that’s not always the case. The FBI has international offices—known as legal attachés—and can join forces with host-country authorities to track down missing children and reconnect them with their parents back home.

    [...]

    Stacey Sullivan: We do have quite a few ideas of where they could be. We have narrowed it down and believe them primarily to be with their father, yes. We don’t believe he would let them out of his sight at this point. And his father has very strong family ties to include his own parents, as well as some other relatives that reside in Egypt, so based on everything so far, potentially, we believe they are in Egypt.

    [...]

    Sullivan said their mother’s anguish has amplified the personal significance of closing this case.

    Sullivan: I see the turmoil that she has to encounter. She writes to them every single day in a journal, letting them know how much she misses them and that she’s never stopped looking for them.

    [...]

    Sullivan: We have had various tips come in over the years, and we have traced them all down, so the tip line has been very productive for us.

    Grover: Sullivan encourages people to especially keep an eye out for them online, and to keep in mind that they might even be going by different names.
