ANCHORAGE - A $15,000 reward is being offered to anyone finding a plane that was carrying four people when it disappeared in southwestern Alaska Aug. 21.
Authorities say 47-year-old Marco Alletto of King Salmon was flying the plane. The passengers worked for the National Park Service and were identified as 26-year-old Mason McLeod, of Jacksonville, Fla., and 28-year-old Neal Spradlin and his 20-year-old brother, Seth, who grew up in Westfield, Ind.
McLeod's father, Steve McLeod, said Saturday that the parents of the missing men are offering the reward.
Searchers have been looking for the plane since it disappeared during a short flight over rugged terrain between Swikshak Lagoon and King Salmon.
