'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

SAN FRANCISCO — In its quest to find a suspected domestic terrorist on the lam for a decade, the FBI on Friday began placing his image on billboards across the country.

The FBI announced Friday that images of Daniel Andreas San Diego will appear on electronic billboards from California to Massachusetts and along the border with Canada. San Diego's image even appeared above New York's Times Square on Friday, the FBI said.

Billboards in Oregon, Nevada and Florida will feature San Diego's image for a week.

San Diego was the first person suspected of domestic terrorism to be added to the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorist List in April 2009. He is charged with planting two bombs that exploded about an hour apart in the wee hours of Aug. 28, 2003, on the campus of a biotechnology company in Emeryville, Calif.

He's also accused of setting off another bomb at a nutritional products company in Pleasanton, Calif., a month later. Neither bombing injured anyone, but authorities said the second bomb at the biotechnology company was meant to harm first responders.

A group calling itself Revolutionary Cells-Animal Liberation Brigade claimed responsibility for the bombings, citing the companies' ties to Huntington Life Science. Huntington has been a longtime target of animal rights extremists because of its work with experimental drugs and chemicals on animals under contract for pharmaceutical, cosmetic and other companies.

The FBI had San Diego under around-the-clock surveillance when investigators watched him park his car near downtown San Francisco on the afternoon of Oct. 6, 2003, and disappear into a transit station. The bureau has not seen him since, though it says it has received numerous sightings of him around the globe.
