    WA - Teen missing in Washington plane crash walks into store

    Missing 16-year-old Autumn Veatch has walked into a store with minor injuries. She has been missing since a small plane carrying herself and her grandparents, Leland and Sharon Bowman, disappeared on its way from Montana to Washington, Saturday.

    An extensive search has been underway. Her grandparents are still missing.

    There's a map at the link. It seems Autumn gave enough info for searchers to be able to locate the plane wreckage. I'm afraid from the way info is being released, her grandparents were not alive when she walked away from the plane.

    This story is making headlines in Europe now, where it's the very early hours.

    I had no idea they were. Only thing I can think of is that this is such an amazing survival story, they're having trouble accepting it.

    Autumn told her dad (who had no idea her step grandpa had a pilot's license and would be flying her himself) that the plane flew through a bank of cloud and straight into the side of a mountain, and caught fire. She tried to pull her grandparents out and waited with them for a day until hiking down the 'Easy Pass' trail for two days, which rescuers say is some of the toughest, most challenging terrain there is.

    Autumn got through all that with just scratches and a temporary 'breakdown' in muscle tissue from too much exercise.

    The wreckage and step-grandparents Leland and Sharon Bowman have still not been located but the search will continue today, weather permitting.

    Weather report for the nearest town in the area of the search seems okay today, but conditions could be very different in the mountains, I suppose.

    Here is a picture of the trail she hiked down. It looks like they are going to have their work cut out for them to find the plane.

    Search crews have spotted wreckage near the area where Autumn emerged but haven't been able to reach it yet. The operation to retrieve the bodies of Mr and Mrs Bowman will continue today.

    It has been confirmed by LE enforcement officials that Autumn told them her step-grandparents did not survive the crash.

    I hate to be critical of the rescuers, but they should have taken tracking dogs out there and back tracked her yesterday. I know there are no survivors, so it's not a priority. But come on, you can't get to a plane crash in the woods like that without walking.

    Another plane is missing in Washington.

    Crews searching Whatcom County for a missing private plane overdue to Orcas Island

    Date: Wednesday, July 15, 2015

    Contact: Barbara LaBoe, WSDOT communications, 360-705-7080 (Olympia), 360-350-2953 (mobile)

    This is a second plane search, unconnected to one launched Sunday near Skagit County.

    OLYMPIA – WSDOT Aviation Emergency Services has launched a search for a plane due to Orcas Island Saturday which never arrived. The search area is in Whatcom County at this point.

    The private plane's two occupants were on vacation in the area from Minnesota and they did not arrive Saturday. We do not have an exact time it was due to Orcas Island on Saturday, just that it didn’t arrive.

    Family did not notify officials of the overdue plane until Tuesday night.

    More details will be announced as they become available.

    NOTE: This search is separate from the one for a Montana plane that also disappeared Saturday near Mazama. Ground crews are hoping to reach wreckage spotted in that search area Tuesday. No identification of the plane or occupants has been made at this point.

    The first day or so after she was found authorities reported she didn't tell them anything about her grandparents, then her dad mentioned to the media that the grandparents were deceased.

    I think people are naturally skeptical when something seems unbelievable, like balloon boy, in this case two people apparently died in the crash while a 3rd walked away w/minor injuries after a plane crash.
