The missing University of Georgia professor suspected of killing his wife and two others did not show up at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport yesterday for a flight to Amsterdam.
The FBI revealed earlier in the week that Zinkhan had his passport and had also bought a Delta Air Lines flight to Amsterdam for May 2.
The 57-year-old Zinkan has a home in the Netherlands, where he has taught part time at a university since April 2007.
Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead said pressure on Zinkhan is growing and he will make a mistake eventually.
The former professor of marketing is accused of killing his wife, 47-year-old attorney Marie Bruce, and two members of her community theater group, Ben Teague, 63, and Tom Tanner, 40, in front of a theater in Athens.
A nationwide alert has been issued but Zinkhan has not been seen since he dropped his children off at a neighbor’s house after the shooting.
On Thursday, a cell phone signal led authorities to a wooded area of northwest Clarke County where Zinkhan’s red Jeep was found in a ravine. Some 200 officers searched the area but did not find him.
