3:20 p.m.

Authorities say there is no reason not to believe that a suburban Phoenix man who disappeared after the 2001 slayings of his wife and two children could be alive.

The FBI and Scottsdale police announced plans Friday to plaster billboards across Arizona with images of how Robert William Fisher would look today.

Acting Special Agent in Charge Justin Tolomeo says the passage of 15 years made an age-enhanced photo necessary.



They say tips of Fisher sightings still come in and they hope the new images will bring more.

Fisher is on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list for three counts of murder and other charges.

Investigators say he is suspected of slitting the throats of family members before triggering an explosion on April 10, 2001.

Federal and local authorities are renewing efforts to locate a suburban Phoenix man wanted in the 2001 slayings of his wife and two children.

Scottsdale police and FBI officials will display new age-enhanced photos of Robert William Fisher during a news conference Friday, the 15-year anniversary of the killings.

Fisher is on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.

Authorities say Fisher slit the throats of his wife, 13-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son on April 10, 2001 and then blew up their Scottsdale home.

He is wanted on three counts of murder and charges of arson of an occupied structure and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

According to investigators, Fisher is a survivalist, hunter and angler.

The FBI has received numerous tips over the years about possible Fisher sightings.
