Search for missing plane continues

Posted: September 13, 2013 - 12:06am

ANCHORAGE — The Alaska Rescue Coordination Center says the search for an airplane missing since Monday is being hampered by bad weather and the pilot’s lack of an emergency beacon.

The search for a Piper PA-32 Cherokee piloted by Alan Foster has focused on the area around the Malaspina Glacier near Yakutat.

Foster landed Monday afternoon in Yakutat, refueled and took off for Anchorage.

The airplane was lost from radar tracking at about 4 p.m.

Searchers so far have tried to retrace Foster’s flight path.

The Anchorage Daily News reports search planes and crews are assembling near the search area.

The Rescue Coordination Center is organizing the search with the Alaska Air National Guard, the Coast Guard, Alaska State Troopers and the Civil Air Patrol.
