Ga. banker accused of losing millions appears in court

A south Georgia bank director accused of losing millions of investor dollars before vanishing appeared in court Thursday.

The U.S. attorney's office in Savannah says 47-year-old Aubrey Lee Price was due to appear before a federal judge in Brunswick on Thursday. Price was arrested Tuesday during a traffic stop on Interstate 95 in Brunswick.

Price had disappeared in June 2012 after sending a rambling letter to his family and acquaintances saying he had lost millions of investment dollars and planned to kill himself.

A Florida judge declared him dead about a year ago. But the FBI had said it didn't believe Price was dead and continued to search for him.

Prosecutors say Price raised $40 million from his bank and 115 investors, and lost much of the money.
