(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.
