Nationwide Manhunt for Ailing 79-Year-Old Fugitive From Justice

An ailing 79-year-old Massachusetts man convicted of insider trading is the target of a nationwide manhunt after he failed to show up at federal prison.

U.S. marshals tell the Boston Globe they are unsure if Robert Bray, of Watertown, has fled across the country or is nearby.

The real estate developer was convicted last year of buying stock in a bank after receiving an illegal tip that it was about to be sold. He made more than $300,000 on the deal.

Bray was ordered to spend two years in prison despite a request for leniency from his lawyer, citing numerous health problems.

He was last seen the day before he was to report to prison when he showed up in a hospital emergency room for a ruptured vein.
