Search resumes for Idaho pilot missing in Oregon

Posted: Updated:

Air and ground crews are again searching southeastern Oregon and northern Nevada in an effort to find a pilot who has been missing since Thursday.

Sheriff Tim Evinger of Klamath County said Monday that an Oregon National Guard helicopter is joining the search.

The pilot, 48-year-old Tony Nicholls of Meridian, Idaho, flew to Lakeview, Ore., on Thursday afternoon to drop off two children. He then departed Lakeview on a return flight to Idaho.

Evinger says there were snow showers and gusty winds in the region at the time of departure.

There is no control tower at Lakeview. Evinger says radar and cell phone records indicate the last known location for the four-seat aircraft was near Hart Lake in the area of Plush, Ore.
