Plane On Flight From Texas Missing In Wyoming

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (October 10, 2012)--An air and ground search was underway Wednesday in southeast Wyoming for a single-engine plane carrying four people on a flight from Texas.

Jeanne Stone-Hunter of the Wyoming Civil Air Patrol says the Piper PA-32 aircraft was reported missing after it failed to land as scheduled Tuesday evening at Casper/Natrona County International Airport.

She said searchers are concentrating their efforts on the Laramie Mountains between Casper and Cheyenne.

An initial search of the area Monday night by the crew of a Civil Air Patrol plane found no emergency beacon signals.

Stone-Hunter said the flight originated in East Texas and stopped in Dodge City, Kan., to refuel.
