US federal agents go to Portugal to catch fugitive who hijacked a plane and disappeared 4 decades agoU.S. authorities were able to locate in Portugal a fugitive accused of hijacking a plane in the name of black liberation by tracking his travel patterns, a law enforcement source said.
George Wright, 68, had been on the run for four decades until Monday, when a manhunt spanning three continents finally caught up with him in the resort town of Sintra, near Lisbon in Portugal, where he had been living quietly.
Authorities matched a fingerprint in a Portuguese national identification database with one that they had on file for Wright from his time in prison, according to two U.S. law enforcement officials. Then, they set up a delicate surveillance operation to make sure they had the man who had eluded them for so long, the officials added.
