For Immediate Release

Sergeant Tasha Thompson

The search for the missing aircraft has resumed. However, due to the weather, aircrafts are unable to get a low level visual search of the area. Civil Air Patrol is flying above and unable to get visual on the ground at this time. CHP aircraft attempted to get a visual of the search area but the weather hampered their efforts.  We do have search and rescue ground crews actively searching at this time.

Snow has fallen in the search area, but forecasts predict improved weather conditions later today.  Updates will be posted when available.
