The Civil Air Patrol says searchers are looking for a light plane with three people aboard that was reported overdue on a flight from Anchorage to Takotna.
Carl Siebe of the air patrol says that the plane left Anchorage about 10 a.m. Monday and was expected to reach its destination about noon.
Alaska National Guard spokesperson Kalei Brooks Rupp confirms the plane was a Cessna 182 with three on board.
The Cessna was traveling with another plane, which reported it missing about 3 p.m. Monday. The overdue plane did not file a flight plan.
The Rescue Coordination Center says search efforts are concentrated on the Rainy Pass and McGrath areas.
