LANDER, Wyo. (AP) - Searchers in Wyoming say they found the wreckage of a small plane that was carrying four members of a Minneapolis family, and there were no survivors.
The Fremont County Sheriff's Department says the plane was found late Monday in the rugged Wind River mountains. Officials say 40-year-old Luke Bucklin was the pilot and his 14-year-old twins Nate and Nick and 12-year-old son Noah were passengers.
The plane left the Jackson Airport in a snowstorm on October 25th. It disappeared from radar about an hour later. Officials say searchers found the wreckage in a boulder field on a steep mountainside.
A friend says the family had been in Wyoming for a wedding and vacation. Luke Bucklin's wife and another son took a commercial flight home.
