Miguel A. Alvarado is wanted for his alleged involvement in the boating deaths of two men on the Intercoastal waterway in the area of Treasure Island, Florida. On May 26, 2005, Alvarado was operating a 29-foot recreational motorboat when he collided with a personal watercraft operated by the two victim males resulting in their deaths. Alvarado allegedly fled the scene of the accident and stopped only when witnesses informed him that law enforcement authorities had been contacted. Alvarado was escorted to the docks by the United States Coast Guard and was later determined to be intoxicated.
Alvarado was charged with leaving the scene of a boating accident involving injury and/or death (two counts), and boating under the influence-manslaughter (two counts), by the Circuit Court for the Sixth Judicial Circuit of Florida in and for Pinellas County, and state warrants were issued for his arrest on December 7, 2005. A federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division, on January 24, 2006, after Alvarado was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
Alvarado may be residing in Venezuela and has family ties in Argentina and Florida. He may travel to different locations in South America for business purposes, and he is known to have been in Colombia from approximately 2006 through 2007.
