Search Resumes For Missing Small Plane
HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton says the search resumes Tuesday for two men whose plane went missing.
Dutton says the pilot radioed about 9 a.m. Sunday he was having engine trouble and then that he hit a tree before officials lost contact.
The men are 60 and 70 years old. Dutton declined to release their names and hometowns. Crews concentrated on the Stemple Pass area on Monday. A resident there reported hearing what may have been a plane at about the time the twin-engine Piper Seneca went missing.
Dutton said the search crews are dealing with rough terrain, poor visibility and harsh weather conditions.
