Search Begins for Missing Plane in Central Idaho
Plane was headed to Butte
BOISE — Authorities are looking for a small airplane that disappeared near the remote central Idaho town of Yellow Pine.

Valley County rescue crews joined the Idaho Army National Guard Monday in searching on ground and by air a for a single-engine Beach Bonanza and the five people aboard the plane.

County officials say the pilot reported engine failure Sunday afternoon and asked for coordinates to circle back to land at the Johnson Creek Airstrip. The backcountry landing strip is near the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness area and three miles south of tiny Yellow Pine.

The plane was flying from Baker, Ore., to Butte, Mont., when it lost radio and radar contact with controllers.

Valley County Sheriff Lt. Dan Smith said the people on board are from the same family.
