Plane crash wreckage found; ‘no known survivors’

RENO — Authorities say there were "no known survivors" after searchers looking for a missing single-engine plane found wreckage in northwestern Utah.

Officials were trying to confirm the wreckage found Thursday in mountains south of Pyramid Lake was from the plane that was reported missing after leaving Reno earlier Thursday for Idaho.

The Washoe County Sheriff's Office didn't immediately release any information about who was aboard the missing plane.

Volunteers found pieces of wreckage along a ridge line near Virginia Peak.

The National Transportation Safety Board said it is investigating the crash.
