Report Casts Doubt Missing Banker Jumped

The owner of a ferry that carried a missing investment adviser the day he vanished off Florida's coast told investigators that anyone jumping into the ocean would have been seen.

U.S. Coast Guard reports obtained by The Associated Press say the ferry owner and captain believe other passengers would have spotted anyone jumping overboard, especially since 160 passengers were on board and it was daylight.

The reports chronicle the last known sightings of Aubrey Lee Price, a former Georgian who vanished in June after boarding the ferry in Key West, Fla. Authorities say Price penned a suicide letter, saying he planned to kill himself by jumping overboard. An arrest warrant has been issued for Price, who faces several fraud charges.

The reports were obtained under the federal Freedom of Information Act.
