Hunters, hikers asked to look for lost plane

Nov 25, 2012 - The Associated Press

Hunters and hikers are being asked to help search for a small plane that went missing a week ago in western Wyoming.

There's been no sign of the Cessna 182 that left Stevensville, Mont., last Saturday, The Jackson Hole News and Guide reported. The plane was due in Pinedale, Wyo., that afternoon but didn't arrive.

Sixty-three-year-old Myles McGinnis and his aircraft have not been found. Searchers on snowmachines and in the air have yet to spot signs of any wreckage.

Authorities believe the plane is in the Upper Hoback area of the Wyoming Range.

Search and rescue teams from both counties have spent the past week searching the area for a La Barge pilot and his single-engine Cessna.

Last radar contact was in the Wyoming Range near the border between Sublette and Lincoln counties.
