A search is continuing in southeast Wyoming for a single-engine plane carrying four people from Texas.
Albany County sheriff's spokesman Lt. Brian Fritzen said Thursday the search is focusing on Laramie Peak north of Laramie because that is where radar operators lost contact.
Jeanne Stone-Hunter of the Wyoming Civil Air Patrol says the Piper PA-32 aircraft was reported missing after it failed to land as scheduled Tuesday evening at Casper/Natrona County International Airport.
She says the flight originated from Harrison County Airport in Marshall, Texas, and stopped in Dodge City, Kan., to refuel.
