Troopers find crashed plane of missing pilot, Tim Twohy
Alaska State Troopers say they have found the wreckage of an airplane belonging to pilot Timothy Twohy, who has been missing since he took off near Rainy Pass in early March.
Remains found at the crash site have been taken to the medical examiner’s office in Anchorage.
Twohy took off in his red and white Cessna 172 on March 6 from Farewell headed for Wasilla, according to NTSB officials, but never arrived. Military and civilian aircraft looked for Twohy and his aircraft for about two weeks before the Alaska Air National Guard suspended the search.
Friends and family set up a fundraising page to finance private searches.
On Tuesday a trooper, the National Transportation Safety Board and investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration went to the crash site just outside Rainy Pass, according to a statement posted by troopers online Wednesday.
The crashed plane's tail number matched that of Twohy's plane.
