Family Seeking Public Help for Missing Plane


(POCATELLO, ID) – The family of one of the men missing after a plane went down in the central Idaho backcountry is asking for help from the public. Kim Dayton of Pocatello says her nephew, Jonathan Norton, was on a flight with four other people when it disappeared Sunday near the Frank Church Wilderness Area. Eight aircraft and 90 hikers are expected to comb the Yellow Pine area today in search of the plane, and authorities are still looking for more volunteers. Those with snowmobiles or horses wanting to assist in recovery efforts can contact the Valley County Sheriff’s Office at 208-382-5160.
