BUENA VISTA, Colo. (AP) — The search for a small airplane en route to Utah ended Saturday when search teams found wreckage and three bodies in the central Colorado mountains.

The plane carried a pilot, a woman and her 12-year-old daughter, Civil Air Patrol Major Mike Spray said. The plane's occupants were not immediately identified.

The Colorado Civil Air Patrol found the plane near a crest of the Continental Divide.

The plane disappeared Friday after it took off from Jefferson County Airport en route to Halls Crossing on the Colorado River in southern Utah.

Spray said an emergency beacon signal helped search teams find the wreckage.
