German FW 190 shot down, 10 Dec 1942

Can anyone help me with this question. Here is what I think are facts. On 10 december 1942, a German pilot named Alfred Kretschmer, Jageschwader 2 “Richtofen” squadron, took off from Bordeau in his FW 190 (and I assume others of his squadron) to fly to North Africa in support of Rommel’s “Afrikakorps”. Kretschmer was shot down during this flight at Sauclieres, although it could have been Millau or Montpellier which are close by but bigger towns. I do not know if it was in the initial or latter stages of the flight. There is no RAF record of a shoot down in this area on this date. If it is a valid shoot down and not RAF, then it had to be an American pilot who did the shooting. Is there a master data base that could be searched? I am looking for the vectors of the American pilot who would have claimed the shoot down victory.
