I looked it up. The aircraft was a B-25D serial number 41-30046 "Impatient Virgin". She was hit by flak over Wewak and ditched in Murik Lagoon. All six of the crew survived the ditching and were observed standing on the wing. At least three crew members were unofficially confirmed to have been taken as prisoners but were later believed to have been executed. In any case, none of the crew survived the war. Reynolds was listed as co-pilot.

Thank you. A sad ending.
