FBI Offering $10K Reward For Info On Fugitive In Deadly 1996 Plane Crash


The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for finding a fugitive mechanic who may have played a role in the ValuJet Flight 592 crash in the Everglades more than two decades ago.

The FBI announced the reward Thursday for any information leading to the capture of Mauro Ociel Valenzuela-Reyes.

Valenzuela-Reyes was a mechanic for the maintenance contractor for ValuJet. 

He disappeared in 1999 while facing federal charges after investigators determined he may have had a hand in the crash that killed 110 passengers and crew members in 1996.

FBI Miami officials say they are still digging for closure in the case. 

A new poster showing how Valenzuela-Reyes may have aged through the years was released along with the reward announcement.

The FBI said Valenzuela-Reyes has connections in Atlanta, and could be living under a false identity.

If captured, he would face the original charges, along with new charges for fleeing and failing to appear at his trial.
