FBI releases video of missing banker and Bradenton resident

ASSOCIATED PRESSJuly 31, 2012 

ATLANTA -- Federal authorities have released two surveillance videos they say show a missing south Georgia bank director on the day he disappeared last month.

The FBI added the videos of Aubrey Lee Price to a wanted poster on its website Monday. Authorities had previously released still images from the videos.

One video shows Price, a former Bradenton resident, leaving the Key West airport on June 16, and getting into a taxi with a small rolling suitcase. The second shows Price rolling the suitcase across a ferry terminal waiting area to a counter where he appears to have a short exchange with someone.

Authorities have accused Price of embezzling $17 million from Montgomery Bank & Trust in Ailey, Ga. after he became a director in December 2010.

Price lived with his wife and children in Bradenton but bought a home in Valdosta earlier this year, according to authorities. Records at the Manatee County Property Appraiser's Office list him as the owner of a condominium on El Conquistador Parkway. Price had moved his family to the south Georgia city, where his wife's parents live, just a few weeks before he disappeared.

His relatives have told investigators they believe he's dead, but investigators have said circumstantial evidence suggests he's still alive.
