Crews search southwest Colorado for missing plane with 4 on board

Crews search southwest Colorado for missing plane with 4 on board

Jen Knellinger, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Wing Civil Air Patrol, said search crews found the wreckage of the Piper Lance on Friday evening in an area rutted with canyons and covered in foot of snow, according to The Associated Press.

The United States Air Force Rescue Coordination Center (AFCC) has confirmed it is searching for a overdue airplane, possibly carrying four men from Warner, Alta.

In a statement posted on the Kaupp Family Farms' Facebook page Friday evening, February 23, they noted that American rescue teams picked up a signal from the emergency beacon in Dove Creek, Colorado. "In the future I will talk about how great the four people that we lost were to everyone that knew them, but for now we are going to grieve", said the Kaupp family in a Twitter message.

A New Mexico rancher who'd seen the family's plight on Facebook okayed the use of his two small aircraft to join in the search, said the woman.

They left on the final three-hour leg of their flight to Albuquerque Thursday morning, she said.

In a post on the Kaupp Family Farms Facebook page, they said the plane crashed with four of their loved ones, Bill Kaupp, 65, Clint Kaupp, 28, Tim Mueller, 28, and Ron McKenzie, 66. There's still a lot of good in this very scary world.

According to Jon, the plane left Cut Bank, Mont., on Wednesday, expecting to arrive in Albuquerque that night, but was grounded in Grand Junction, Colo., due to poor weather conditions.

The Sheriff's Office will be turning the investigation over to the FAA who will be releasing more information as it becomes available.
