Searchers in southeast Wyoming have found the wreckage of a single-engine plane that failed to arrive at the Casper, Wyoming, airport as planned after taking off from Marshall.

Albany County Undersheriff Rob DeBree says the plane was found in pieces Thursday on the south face of Laramie Peak, and there were no survivors. The plane left Tuesday morning from Harrison County Airport to and was reported missing Tuesday night.

All the occupants from the Marshall are identified as Billy Gee, owner of Bayou Aviation and operator of a flight school at Harrison County Airport; Maverick Cayce, a pilot and employee at the flight school; Chuck Ford, owner of CW Ford Rentals in Marshall; and James Morgan.

DeBree says crews plan to recover the wreckage early Friday.

The search for the Piper PA-32 had been led by the Wyoming Civil Air Patrol, a U.S. Air Force helicopter and ground crews.

The plane had been scheduled to land Tuesday evening at the Casper airport after taking off from Marshall, Texas, and stopping for fuel in Dodge City, Kansas.
