Still No Sign Of Missing Plane In NE Minnesota
DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Crews will be out again Saturday looking for a missing pilot in northeastern Minnesota.
Lt. Col. Paul Hertel of the Civil Air Patrol says crews searched from the air and ground Friday without finding any signs of the suspected downed plane.
Hertel says the air and ground search will continue Saturday. An additional ground team will join the search.
After being grounded by stormy weather Thursday, the air search resumed Friday for pilot Mike Bratlie and his Piper PA-31 Navajo plane.
Bratlie departed from a South St. Paul airport on June 8 and was headed to the Duluth area.
