DALLAS (December 19, 2013) The FBI announced a $20,000 reward Thursday for information leading to the arrest of Lewisville taxi driver Yaser Abdel Said, who’s accused of shooting his two teenage daughters to death nearly six years ago.

Said was born in Egypt and he's also believed to have ties to the New York City area and Canada, the FBI said.

He’s wanted for capital murder in the Jan. 1, 2008 shooting deaths of his daughters Amina, 18, and Sarah, 17.

Authorities say he took the two teenagers for a ride in his cab under the pretense of getting something to eat, drove to Irving and then shot both girls to death.

Their bodies were found on New Year's Day 2008 in a cab at a hotel in Irving.

Police have said the family had previous domestic problems, but no motive for the shooting has been disclosed.

An arrest warrant was issued on Jan. 2, 2008.

Said is in his 50s, has a mustache, wears dark sunglasses both indoors and outside, frequents Denny's and I-Hop restaurants and smokes Marlboro Light 100's cigarettes, the FBI said.

He’s known to carry a handgun in his cab and may also carry weapons including knives, the FBI said.
