Criminals On 'America's Most Wanted' Who Were Never Caught

For 25 seasons, a television show called America's Most Wanted was responsible for the arrest of hundreds of fugitive criminals. But not everybody who was profiled on the show got caught - several individuals, including some extremely dangerous offenders, are still on the loose. Many of these individuals have appeared on the FBI and US Marshal's "Most Wanted Lists." If they evade capture for long enough, they are eventually removed from these lists by American law enforcement. 

Which criminals have appeared on the episodes of America's Most Wanted and have not been captured? Here is a list of fugitives who were featured on the show and were never caught, listed from oldest to newest. Keep your eyes peeled the next time you go to the grocery store or take a cab, because they may be hiding in plain sight in your very own neighborhood. 

  • Elby Hars, 2000 - Child Rape

    Elby Hars is a convicted child molester wanted for the rape of a 12-year-old child in South Carolina in 2000. He was previously convicted of molesting his own 7-year-old daughter, Terri Hars, who grew up and decided to live with her father. The father/daughter duo sexually assaulted the 12-year-old girl in South Carolina together. 

    Terri Hars was arrested shortly after the repeated attacks were reported to police, but Elby Hars has been on the run ever since. He is currently in his early seventies and is one of the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" for crimes against children. 

  • Robert William Fisher, 2001 - Murder Of His Family

    On April 10, 2001, Robert William Fisher shot his wife in the back of the head, stabbed her, and slashed the throats of his 10-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter. He then disconnected the gas line in his home in Scottsdale, Arizona, and set it ablaze.

    Fisher's wife had informed him that she intended to seek a divorce, a suggestion he clearly found objectionable. Fisher's car was eventually found a few weeks later in a national forest, 90 miles northeast of Phoenix. He is a survivalist who purchased camping equipment only days before the triple homicide. He is currently listed on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted List."

    On November 29, 2004, in Phoenix, Arizona, Jason Derek Brown shot and killed Robert Palomares, a 24-year-old armored truck guard. Brown robbed Palomares of over $50,000 dollars in cash before fleeing by car. His trail led to Portland, Oregon, where he disappeared.

    Although spotted in the Salt Lake City area in 2008, Brown has evaded detection and is currently on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list. 

  • Daniel Hiers, 2005-6 - Child Molestation And Spousal Murder

    Daniel Hiers was a police officer in South Carolina accused of molesting a 10-year-old and arrested on November 24, 2005. Hiers subsequently murdered his 24-year-old wife, Ludmilla, in March of 2005 in the Charleston, South Carolina area. He was spotted in Colorado in 2012, but has since evaded capture.

    Because he is an indicted fugitive, he is wanted by the US Marshals and is currently listed on their "15 Most Wanted" list.
