Authorities in Sierra County are searching for a missing aircraft that was carrying a married couple from Truckee to Petaluma earlier this week.
Mark Richard and his wife, Brenda, departed at about 4pm Monday from the Truckee Tahoe Airport in a small four-seat Socata TB20 Trinidad with tail No. N28070.
They were scheduled to land at the Petaluma Municipal Airport, but they never arrived, according to the Sierra County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators narrowed the search to an area near Yuba Pass Road, between Webber Lake and Jackson Meadow – about 22 miles northwest of Truckee.
