FBI seeks father whose baby went missing, girlfriend was found dead in Tijuana

Federal authorities called on the public on Friday to find a man whose girlfriend, a San Diego resident, was recently found dead in Tijuana and whose 7-month-old daughter was missing before she was found safe this week.

The FBI said Tyler Adams, a 50-year-old U.S. citizen with more than a dozen nicknames, used fake IDs Thursday to avoid being located as he returned to the U.S. at the port of San Yidro.

Adams, who has not been identified as a suspect, is wanted for questioning over the disappearance and alleged death of 40-year-old Raquel Sabin, according to the FBI. Decomposed remains believed to belong to Sabean were found late last month in Tijuana in an abandoned vehicle.

Baja California officials issued an Amber Alert for Sabean’s daughter – an FBI spokesman who said Adams was thought to be the father – on June 8, saying the trio had traveled to Mexico together in April.

On Wednesday, Mexican authorities arrested and questioned Adams in connection with the Amber Alertbut was not cooperative, according to the FBI.

On Thursday, Authorities canceled the Amber Alert after the baby was found safe and in good health in Mexico, according to the office of the Attorney General of Baja California. The FBI says the baby remains in custody in Mexico.

That day, around 1:30 p.m., Adams crossed into the United States in San Ysidro using the nickname “Aaron Bain,” according to the FBI.

“He was using a fake ID, not a passport,” an FBI spokesman in San Diego wrote in an email Friday to the Union-Tribune. “There was an active warrant in his real name at the time of his passage, which would result in additional control.”

In a press release, the FBI said that Adams is a “wanted fugitive” in Hawaii on a second-degree escape charge. An arrest warrant was issued for this case in September 2020.

Adams, Sabean and their young daughter moved to Mexico on April 17, according to information provided by Amber Alert.

On May 31, residents of a Tijuana neighborhood complained of a foul odor coming from a vehicle, according to several media reports. Authorities responded and found a decomposing body believed to belong to Sabean in the back of the car.

The FBI described Adams as a white man with brown hair and possible swelling under his eyes, 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 175 pounds. He was last seen wearing a yellow short-sleeved shirt with buttons, tan pants and black running shoes. Photographs taken Wednesday by Mexican authorities showed him with prescription glasses or reading glasses hanging from the collar of his shirt.

Adams is known to use at least 15 aliases: Aaron Lee Bain, Aaron Lee, Aaron Lee, Paul Wilson Phipps, Paul Wilson Phillps, David Smith, Dominic Braun, David Phillips, Kevin Schoolcraft, Kevin Kennedy, Michael Whittman, Lance Irwin, Brice Johnson, Matthew Kashani, Taylor Chase and Joshua Smith.

Anyone with information about Adams’ whereabouts was asked to contact the FBI at (800) 225-5324 or tips.fbi.govor the San Diego County Crime Stoppers Anonymous Advice Line at (888) 580-8477 or online at sdcrimestoppers.org.
