Missing plane carrying Sun Prairie man found

Posted:

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- The Valley County sheriff's office says the wreckage of a small plane carrying five people that vanished in the central Idaho mountains on Dec. 1 has been found. There were no survivors.

Sheriff's Lt. Dan Smith said Friday that an incoming storm may delay recovery efforts.

The single-engine plane was piloted by 51-year-old Dale Smith, a software executive from San Jose, Calif. Also on board were the elder Smith's son, Daniel Smith and his wife, Sheree Smith, and daughter Amber Smith with her fiance, Jonathon Norton.

The plane was flying from eastern Oregon to Montana on Dec. 1 when it disappeared in mountains 150 miles northeast of Boise.

Authorities had suspended the search for the plane in mid-December.
