Brothers On Crashed Plane In Wyoming Presumed Dead

Posted: Updated:
Wyoming authorities are resuming their search for a missing single-engine plane with two men in their 80s on board. The plane was headed to Seattle from Wyoming and was supposed to make a stop in Twin Falls, Idaho. Wyoming authorities are resuming their search for a missing single-engine plane with two men in their 80s on board. The plane was headed to Seattle from Wyoming and was supposed to make a stop in Twin Falls, Idaho.
UPDATE: CODY, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities say two elderly brothers on board a single-engine plane found crashed on a mountain in northwest Wyoming are presumed dead.
   
The Park County Sheriff Office says the determination was made after viewing the crash site from the air. The danger of avalanche made it too risky to put people on the rugged, snowy mountain just outside Yellowstone National Park.
   
The 1963 Mooney M20C was last seen May 6 departing Yellowstone Regional Airport in Cody. On board were 84-year-old Robert L. Zimmerman of Huntsville, Alabama, and 86-year-old Ward H. Zimmerman of Seattle. The plane was reported missing Saturday and was found Monday at about 9,900-foot elevation on a 60-degree slope with a large cornice above it.
   
The brothers were headed from Cody to Twin Falls, Idaho, and then to Seattle.

UPDATE:
CODY, Wyo. (AP) - A missing single-engine plane with two brothers in their 80s on board has been found crashed on a mountain in northwest Wyoming.
   
The Park County Sheriff Office says the plane was found Monday morning on a rugged, snowy mountain just outside Yellowstone National Park.
   
However, the fear of an avalanche has prevented rescuers from reaching the crash site, which is at about 9,900-foot elevation. So officials can't determine the condition of the occupants.
   
The 1963 Mooney M20C was last seen Tuesday departing Yellowstone Regional Airport in Cody. On board were 84-year-old Robert L. Zimmerman of Huntsville, Alabama, and 86-year-old Ward H. Zimmerman of Seattle, Washington. The plane was reported missing Saturday, and the search began Sunday.
   
The brothers were headed from Cody to Twin Falls, Idaho, and then to Seattle.

The Park County Sheriff Office's Search and Rescue Team was headed back into the rugged, snowy backcountry near Yellowstone National Park on Monday.
    
Searchers also looked for the plane Sunday, a day after police in Idaho alerted Wyoming authorities.

Radar last detected the plane about seven miles outside the Yellowstone east entrance in northwest Wyoming. Poor weather has prevented an aerial search so far.
