Plane Wreckage Found

The wreckage of that small airplane returning that went missing while on a return flight from Idaho was found late yesterday afternoon in a rugged area of the Sierra Nevada near Lake Tahoe.  According to the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, searchers discovered the wreckage in the Desolation Wilderness.  A man’s body was found outside the plane and the Sheriff’s Office said the coroner would have to identify the remains. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the missing single-engine Cessna, manufactured in 1960, is registered to a resident of Wilton. The plane was reported missing Saturday evening, but a search was called off Sunday and Monday because of stormy weather.
