November 12, 2008 — Searchers aboard a U.S. Army National Guard helicopter Wednesday spotted the wreckage of a single-engine Cessna 182 missing since Tuesday in the Holy Cross Wilderness near Vail.
National Guard searchers said the crash, one-tenth of a mile east of Josephine Lake, was not survivable.
Volunteers from Vail Mountain Rescue Group and Western Eagle County Search and Rescue were searching for the remains of the plane's pilot, who was reportedly the only one in the aircraft.
According to the Eagle County Sheriff's Department, the pilot, whose name is not being released at this time, left the Rocky Mountain Metro Airport in Jefferson County at about 2:45 p.m. Tuesday and was headed to Aspen. The last radar ping on the aircraft was at about 3:30 p.m. near Lake Josephine.
