CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Authorities plan to try again to find signs of small plane carrying a Minneapolis man and three of his children.

The plane disappeared Monday over western Wyoming and officials had hoped a plane equipped with sensitive detection equipment would hear a signal from the missing plane’s locater beacon on Thursday.

Search spokesman Ernie Over said that the special search plane found nothing definitive. Incident commanders plan more flights Friday.
