CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Searchers plan to return to the sky again on Thanksgiving Day in the hunt for a small plane missing in western Wyoming.

Stan Skrabut of the Civil Air Patrol says three fixed-wing aircraft and a helicopter found no sign of the plane on Wednesday.

He says high winds forced the planes to land earlier than planned on Wednesday but the helicopter stayed aloft longer.

The Sublette County Sheriff's Office says the 63-year-old pilot, Myles McGinnis of LaBarge, Wyo., was the only person aboard the Cessna 182. McGinnis left Stevensville, Mont., on Saturday bound for Pinedale but his plane disappeared from radar between Jackson and Bondurant.
