YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) -- Authorities in Washington state are searching for a missing plane with up to 10 people from a skydiving company on board.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane left Star, Idaho, last night on its way to Shelton, Washington. But it did not arrive as scheduled.
The plane is registered to a company in Shelton. The co-owner of the Shelton company says 10 people from a skydiving company were scheduled to be on the plane, but it is unknown how many were actually on board.
The co-owner says the more than 60-year-old family-owned company has never lost a plane, and that the plane also had never experienced mechanical problems.
A hunter in the White Pass area told police he saw a plane flying low and heard a crash last night.
