The FBI has offered up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest of Aubrey Lee Price, a Georgia investment advisor, who disappeared in June along with millions of dollars of investors' money. Price went missing June 16. He is accused of securities fraud and wire fraud. FBI has stated that Price told acquaintances that "he had lost a large amount of money through trading activities and that he planned to kill himself." Among the investors who entrusted their money to Price was Montgomery Bank & Trust in Ailey, Ga., which invested approximately $17 million through Price.
The U.S. Attorney's Office and the SEC have alleged that Price lost millions of dollars through trading of investors' money and that Price also wired some of the investors' money to bank accounts that Price controlled. In effort to hide his investment fraud, Price allegedly gave false account statements to investors. Price, 46, allegedly was last seen getting on a ferry boat in Key West, Fla., en route to Fort Myers, Fla.
Although Price allegedly threatened suicide, his body has not been found and the FBI believes he's still alive. He apparently has connections in both Florida and Georgia, and the FBI has stated that it believes that Price may travel to Guatemala or Venezuela.
