    " A small plane vanished over rough terrain while traveling from Oden, AR to Wickels, AR last week.

    NOTE: Right now, the only images we have are riddled with cloud cover. We hope to post clearer imagery within the next few days.

    "MENA, Ark. (AP) - Helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft again took part in the continuing search for a missing Arkansas Forestry Commission pilot who vanished during a flight last week.

    No sign of pilot Jake Harrell turned up during Friday's efforts.

    Helicopters and planes from the National Guard, State Police, U.S. Forest Service, Arkansas Forestry Commission, and Civil Air Patrol took part in the hunt on Friday. The Forestry Commission says the same fleet is to be in the air on Saturday"

    "ODEN, Ark -- More than 200 people continued the search for a pilot last seen on Jan. 31.

    Arkansas Forestry Commission pilot, Jake Harrell, went missing while he was looking for wildfires to fight.

    Fifteen aircraft picked up the search on Wednesday, which entered day fie. The search planes included nine from Civil Air Patrol, four AFC planes, a State Police Helicopter, and two National Guard helicopters.

    Some 75 hours alone were flown by aircraft on Monday, not including hours flown by the National Guard.

    At a staging area in Oden, a crew was on standby Wednesday afternoon waiting for searchers up in the air to spot something they would then locate from the ground.

    Clearer conditions gave search crews a break in the mountainous Western Arkansas terrain.

    As planes and helicopters look from above, teams from the Montgomery and Polk County Sheriff's Offices join the ground search.

    Wednesday -- the search area expanded to 800 acres south and west of the Oden where Harrell called in a radio check last Friday".

    No, you can't see it because it's a closed group and only members can see what's in it!
    Justice for Jennifer


    Rest in peace Danielle and Tammy

    There is a "(click here)" link highlighted in blue at the above link which will take you to the maps where you can do grid searches. It does not go thru facebook.

    I copied this just to show you where "click here" is located. This does not work.

    They've also secured an agreement with Tomnod, a satellite-imagery website, to provide current images of the search area once the weather is clear enough. Those images will be posted to a website (click here) created for this purpose, and open to the public.

    Has the aircraft had recent maintenance issues.. What altitude was he flying at? Did he have flight following? Does atc have any radar data at all? Any distress calls? What were the weather conditions?

    "Barnes said the snow and ice has not only hampered searchers, but may have covered any wreckage of the aircraft.

    "If there's a plane that we've flown over four times it's still there coated in snow," she said. "And that's what we're worried about."

    She said the mission is still a search operation in hopes that Harrell has managed to survive in the rugged, mountainous region for more than a week.

    "We're doing our best to encourage our searchers," Barnes said. "We won't go home until he does."

    The search area includes about 950,000 acres across three counties and is generally focused along, as well as north and south of, a line that is believed to be Harrell's flight path from Oden to Wickes"

    "The plane he is in is fairly distinctive. The wings, horizontal and vertical stabilizer (tail section) are painted orange on both top and bottom. The fuselage is white with a black stripe and black numbers. It's a single engine, high-wing Cessna, meaning the only propeller is on the front, and the wing is on top of the plane.
