Authorities in Wyoming are searching for a small plane that dropped off radar Monday afternoon after leaving Jackson Hole Airport, a police spokesman said.
Det. Sgt. Ryan Lee of the Fremont County Sheriff's Office said searchers are working in a very remote area of the county with elevations around 13,000 feet. Four people were on board the plane, he said.
A helicopter flew to the search area earlier Tuesday, and searchers expect to get another over the area later in the day. A four-person search crew is on the ground and will spend the night in the area before more ground searchers are deployed Wednesday, he said.
Snow storms, high winds and low visibility have hampered the search, he said. Lee said authorities would not release the identities of those on board pending notification of family members and also would not say whether there were children aboard.
But the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that the plane carried the president of a Twin Cities web development company and three children.
My prayer's go out to everyone involved in this tragic situation.!
Praying for Nick,Nate,Noah and their father. I photographed @ the boys schools this fall school year. God Bless them and keep them safe. Blessings from Eagan, Mn
Upon the initial reading of this article I was very saddened especially to learn of children being involved and certainly my thoughts and prayers are with them. But, then I realized after a few minutes that if people are saying the weather was "bad" when they took off and the peaks in the area in which they are flying are at an elevation of 13,000 feet then does this not qualify as child endangerment? As a mother, I would never have allowed my children to leave the ground that day. Another (better weather day)opportunity would have come in a short time but sadly, now, they may not have that opportunity again.
@ M: Your response to Joseph was completely unfounded and quite thoughtless and rude. Unless you personally have knowledge as to the outcome of this particular situation that you are not sharing with the rest of the world, then YES, it is a fact that this qualifies as a mystery as every english dictionary would define it.
These kids in the story are my friends. I love them and they're really great people. Please please please pray for them. They're only kids.
These tragedies always effect me for years afterwards. I hope i hear what happened. Good luck.
did someone foget to tell the rich father the mountains dont care about your money, they are indiscriminate, sometimes you wonder, what reality did he live in, like most wealthy set their own reality, to used to getting his way, now your dead, and took the kids too, great dad, your a real genius!
