    UT - Matthew Ahrens, Trista Meyer, Shyann Lenz, missing plane, 25 Nov 2012

    http://www.ksl.com/?sid=23145797&nid...cid=featured-1

    FILLMORE The Utah Civil Air Patrol was looking for a plane that disappeared Sunday after taking off from Fillmore.



    The single engine Piper Archer II took off Sunday from California en route to Gillette, Wyo., according to a prepared statement from the Civil Air Patrol.



    The Campbell County Sheriff's Department in Wyoming identified the missing pilot as Matthew Ahrens, 37, and the passengers as Trista Meyer, 34, and her 9-year-old daughter, Shyann Lenz, all from Gillette.



    Authorities were alerted to the situation when Lenz's father called to report the little girl was overdue.

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    If anyone here lives in the area or nearby, please share the dog pictures on your facebook page (if you have one). I'm sure if the dogs can get anywhere they will try to alert someone in some way.

    The one named Brittany is actually SMILING

    This story is too sad.

    Seeing the vigil pictures from last night made my heart ache.

    Beautiful recent pics of mom and daughter too.

    Complete and utter hearbreak for everyone and anyone who knows this family.

    I'm here hoping for the best with the rest of you.

    I think it is a real possibility they can be found. My husband crashed a small plane years ago andwalked away but the plane was destroyed. This one hits close to home for me.

    Mr. Lenz spoke with the Governor of Utah. Hopefully that will help with the searches.

    I agree. As long as they can be located quickly, there is definitely still hope that they will be found alive. It's only been 5 days, as long as they aren't too badly injured it's absolutely possible that they have survived out there for this long.

    Is Matthew a very experienced pilot?

    Is it normal to carry supplies such as water and food on a light aircraft? I would think that it would make sense to carry a kit on the plane just in case something happens and you become stranded, but I honestly wouldn't have any fact to back this up with. I'd assume they would have access to a basic first aid kit as well.

    Hopefully the dogs are able to find someone and bring help. Dogs usually have an incredibly strong drive to protect their 'pack'.

    I really hope these people are found. Can they still ping towers if the cells are off? What about a flight plan, are the required. I always wonder how small planes can just go, do they have to contact someone to let them now. Could he have gone a different direction. Those woods scare the heck out of me. So deep and non populated.

    He did not file a flight plan (which was a HUGE mistake). In any event, what is done is done. Does anyone know a pilot? I'd ask DH but he's at work. They are asking on the Facebook Group page for someone to look at the maps as they believe there are 3 main corridors from which he would have chosen to fly from Fillmore to Gillete. I'd also factor in the weather for that day, but a pilot would know that.

    I'm a flight attendant so I know of a lot of pilots but no one I can grab at this moment.

    Did they call the Civil Air Patrol??

    I will try to post on their FB page.

    Latest update: The sheriff has been given the use of a blackhawk helicopter to help search.

    Please, please let them be found today!
