(NBC NEWSCHANNEL) The FBI is still looking for a man indicted in connection with the crash of ValuJet Flight 592 that crashed twenty years ago in the Everglades, killing all 110 on board.

Mauro Ociel Valenzuela was one of three employees of Sabretech indicted following the investigation of the crash.

That investigation found that chemical oxygen generators that didn't have safety caps on them were loaded in the cargo compartment and that Sabretech employees signed off on that.

The FBI says Valenzuela, who's now 47-years-old, took off before trial and became a fugitive.

They say he could be in Chile under a false identity, but he also has ties to Georgia.

At one time, Valenzuela was an FAA certified mechanic.
