(Wyo.)-Officials Search For Missing Plane Near Cheyenne
(A plane, similar to this Piper PA-32, was reported missing on Monday.)
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - An air and ground search is under way in southeast Wyoming for a single-engine plane carrying four people.
Jeanne Stone-Hunter of the Wyoming Civil Air Patrol says the Piper PA-32 aircraft was reported missing after it failed to land as scheduled Tuesday evening at Casper/Natrona County International Airport.
She says searchers are concentrating their efforts on the Laramie Mountains between Casper and Cheyenne.
An initial search of the area Monday night by a Civil Air Patrol plane found no emergency beacon signals.
Stone-Hunter says the flight originated in east Texas and stopped in Dodge City, Kan., to refuel.
