Mollie Halpern: The FBI is aiming for justice in a case involving the tragic boating deaths of two men in Florida.

I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is Wanted by the FBI.

Miguel Angel Alvarado is on the lam after he allegedly crashed his 29-foot motorboat into a personal watercraft driven by Cory Vincent and Joseph Battista...

Neil Palenzuela: ...which tragically resulted in both their deaths.

Halpern: Special Agent Neil Palenzuela, of the Tampa Division, says Alvarado drove away from the scene of the crime…

Palenzuela: ...and only stopped after he was ordered to do so by a witness who had been following him.

Halpern: Alvarado was allegedly drunk at the time of 2005 crash. Since then, we believe he left the United States for his native country of Venezuela.

Palenzuela: We’re going to keep pursuing Alvarado until we bring him to justice. It’s just that simple.

Halpern: For a description and photos of Alvarado, visit www.fbi.gov. If you have information about this case, call your local FBI office or nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
