Missing plane found crashed in Wyoming

Posted: Updated:

Laramie, Wyoming (KYTX) - Search crews have found the missing plane belonging to a Marshall man crashed in Wyoming.

U.S. Air Force choppers found the wreckage site on the South face of Laramie Mountain around 6 Central time this evening.

This is a look at the plane that was set to land in Casper, Wyoming Tuesday, but never made it.

That plane belongs to 52-year-old Charles Ford, there were three other people on board with him.

Albany County Undersheriff Rob DeBree says the fuselage and tail were found at the site and there were no signs of life.

"The fuselage was burned and is sitting precariously on a shelf - a rock shelf on a rock face. Almost like a cliff and it will require fairly extensive recovery operation," says Undersheriff Rob DeBree.

That specialized crew should set out to start the recovery effort early tomorrow morning.

The names have not been released.

The National Transportation Safety Board has been notified.
