JACKSON, WY - Another day of ground searching has failed to turn up any sign of a missing plane piloted by a Wyoming man who took off from Ravalli County over the weekend.
Civil Air Patrol had reported the plane was overdue Saturday on a flight that was supposed to have terminated in Pinedale, southeast of Jackson in the Upper Green River Valley.
The plane had taken off late Saturday morning from Stevensville and was to have landed by mid-afternoon.
The Jackson Hole Daily reports search planes were grounded again by bad weather Monday, but ground teams searched an area in the Upper Hoback, between Jackson and Pinedale, where the radar lost contact with the single engine Cessna.
The Sublette County Sheriff's Office says searchers have been using radio receivers in hopes of getting a "ping" off the plane's emergency locator, but without success.
