FBI Offers $20,000 Reward for Missing Georgia Bank Director
On Monday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced a reward of up to $20,000 for information that leads to the arrest of Aubrey Lee Price, a South Georgia bank director and money manager. Price allegedly embezzled $17 million from his failed bank, the AJC reports.
The former Montgomery Bank & Trust director vanished in mid-June. Earlier this month, Price was charged with wire fraud in federal court in New York. His bank was shut down on Friday. TheSecurities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in Atlanta also obtained an order to freeze Price’s assets due to a civil complaint accusing him of defrauding more than 100 clients, mostly in Georgia and Florida.
Around the time of his disappearance, friends and colleagues received a letter bearing Prince’s name that stated he lost millions of dollars in client funds and suggested he intended to commit suicide.
Prince has been reported as a missing person to the Lowndes County Sheriff’s office. According to the authorities, he was last seen on a ferry leaving Key West, Florida. It is believed that Price regularly travels to Venezuela and Guatemala.
Price, who goes by his middle name, Lee, is 5’ 7”, weighs 170 lbs., and has light brown hair and green eyes. He was last seen wearing tan shorts, a white T-shirt and a maroon baseball hat.
