Search for missing plane continues in Wyoming

More ground searchers will be deployed Wednesday as authorities in Wyoming look for a small plane that dropped off radar.

Officials have been unable to locate the plane, with four people on board, since it took off from Jackson Hole Airport Monday afternoon.

Det. Sgt. Ryan Lee of the Fremont County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday searchers were working in a very remote area of the county with elevations around 13,000 feet.

Snow storms, high winds and low visibility have hampered the search, Lee said. He 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.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune had reported that the plane carried the president of a Twin Cities web development company and three children.

    I spent 3 years living @ 9,200 feet in a little town in the CO rockies wedged between 2 treacherous passes near the Great Divide. I just thought they could've/should've waited out the weather. Where do you need to go that badly/quickly if conditions aren't drivable than how are they flyable? If the risk of the road was avalanche? I'll pray for them but I would not take that risk. My childrens safety trumps everything.

    Loss is loss and tragedy is tragedy. To bring politics into a family destruction like this shows a complete lack of class. When those of you who have chosen to use this forum as a platform for your own personal BS find loss of your own I will still show respect for your difficulties. All good thoughts to the families of those lost

    can you say natural selection? Anyone who has spent time out in that area knows, one bad/ questionable can and will result in death. How hard can it be! If all alone, thats your choice, but dont make your kids share your risky decision. There is no margin of error big or small enough to risk young lives. What was so important? God bless the children, and forgive the foolish father.

    And my family has encountered tragedy and that is how one forms a staunch resolve to considering the risk factor before making a decision that could potentially have life threatening results.

    I am a single father, so no matter how much fun i might be missing, or how much another zero in your bank account means, YOUR KIDS COME FIRST! no meeting too important, no other woman, nothing that you put even yourself at risk for let alone three kids. raise them first, then do what you gotta do. again, no small decisions out there concerning saftey and weather, the worst kind of bad decision is the one you cant take back, got to be smart, how do theese people get rich with risk/rewar decisions like that, being callus and trumping good judgement with brutish authority, not anything i care for, just happy to be working and in good healt. take care of your young, all we do is for them in the real world anyway . no reward worth that risk, sory to all involved

    • Are you serious?

      It is alarmingly obvious why the world is in a world of hurt. People are arrogant and heartless. I know the father. He is a kind, loving, generous man. He would never intentionally put his children in danger. It just so happens he did wait a day to leave because he was unsure of weather. Hindsight is always 20/20. His family is in agony and desperately waiting to hear something, anything. It is easy to make a comment/be judgmental when you aren't standing in front of his family and can remain anonymous. Next time you read an article like this....be respectful and keep your hurtful comments to yourself. And thank you to anyone that took the time to think of this family in this difficult time and say a prayer.

    • Idiot aka Bond James Bond

      How can you judge without knowing? Other how can you guys put up a debate without all of the facts or make political remarks! What has happened to respect and decency? The father might have a successful career, but additional zeros is not part of his life. His first priority is his family and this is an extremely difficult time for all. We are all praying for the family and for good news to come from the research team.

    Despite when the father should have left and all the other insensitive comments, let's be mature and sensitive to those that are hurting right now...their family and friends. LET'S ALL LIFT THEM UP IN PRAYER FOR A MIRACULOUS RECOVERY...GOD CAN DO ALL THINGS FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE!!! I believe no matter the danger that's posed GOD "can and will" bring a good outcome to pass:)

    sorry dont subscribe to your ideaology, but to each his own, despite being borderline athiest, i will admit i do believe in something god like(for lack of a better term) there is compelling evidence of stories told in the bible( coll. In rome still) i find the conflict of extra terrestrial life, and god as creator of all very ponderous, as i believe the evidence of who we are (not you shannon sharpe) will soon come to be known.that hand will be unavoidable, we will need help to save ourselves, science also has compelling evidence conflicting with gospel.

    Agreed James and last few posts very well spoken and difficult to debate. With that being said, thoughts and prayers to the family as well as my fellow bloggers, in agreement or not.
