Searchers in central Utah have found the wreckage of a missing plane bound for Gillette, Wyoming.
Sevier County Sheriff Nathan Curtis says rescuers spotted the plane Sunday morning and recovered the bodies of three people onboard. He says a medical examiner would determine a cause of death.
The plane disappeared from radar November 25 shortly after making a refueling stop in Fillmore, Utah. It was heading from Bakersfield, Calif., to Gillette.
Family members say the occupants were 37-year-old pilot Matthew Ahrens, 34-year-old passenger Trista Meyer, and her 9-year-old daughter, Shyann Lenz. Ahrens was from Bakersfield, while Meyer and Lenz were from Rozet, Wyoming.
Curtis says the plane appeared to have flown into the side of the mountain, but says there weren't obvious signs of why it crashed.
