Cincinnati, OH (AP, FOX19) -

 Procter & Gamble Co. says one of its employees was aboard the EgyptAir plane that crashed into the Mediterranean Sea.

The consumer products maker identified him as Ahmed Helal, manager of its plant in Amiens, France. He had held a variety of manager positions since joining P&G in his native Egypt in 2000.

His LinkedIn profile says he earned a mechanical engineering degree from The American University in Cairo in 1999. Other personal information wasn't available immediately.

P&G spokesman Damon Jones says in a statement: "We are in touch with the employee's family and are offering them our full support during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with them, and all the affected families."

The Cincinnati-based company makes products such as Tide detergent and Pampers diapers.
