Small plane missing in Washington Cascades

The Associated Press

WENATCHEE — A search is under way for a small plane that disappeared Monday in the Washington Cascades on a flight from Tonasket to Sequim.

The state Transportation Department’s Aviation Emergency Services says family members notified officials when the plane did not arrive.

A Tonasket man is the only person on board the home-made plane. Search spokeswoman Alice Fiman says he was flying to Sequim to pick up a family member. No emergency signal has been received.

Civil Air Patrol planes operating out of the Wenatchee Airport are searching the route a pilot would take between Tonasket and Sequim.
