YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) -- No survivors.
That's the word from an emergency official in Washington state, where ground searchers found the wreckage of a missing skydiving plane carrying 10 people.
Jim Hall, the director of Yakima Valley Emergency Management, says it appears that the airplane crashed at a fairly high speed in the central Cascades.
The Cessna 208 Grand Caravan disappeared after leaving Star, Idaho, near Boise, Sunday evening en route to Shelton, Washington. It was returning from a skydiving meet in Idaho. Ground searchers following the smell of fuel located the wreckage Monday night. A serial number verified that it was the missing aircraft.
