     CHEYENNE, Wyo. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - Authorities have released the names of four east Texas men killed in a plane crash in the mountains of Wyoming.
     Searchers looked for the plane for almost two days before they found the wreckage of the single-engine Piper plane toward sunset Thursday.
     There were no survivors. Albany County officials said Friday those killed were 52-year-old Charles Ford and 29-year-old James Morgan, both of Marshall, Texas; along with 21-year-old Maverick Cayce, of Longview, Texas; and 65-year-old Billy Gee of Karnack, Texas.
     The plane had taken off from Marshall, Texas, and was due in Casper Tuesday evening. The plane went missing in foggy weather.
     A pilot spotted the wreckage on Laramie Peak in a remote area of southeast Wyoming. The crash is being investigated and authorities plan to remove the wreckage.
