UPDATE: Missing Plane Found In Idaho; 5 Aboard Dead

Posted: Updated:
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - An Idaho sheriff's office says the wreckage of a small plane carrying five people, including a Silicon Valley executive, has been found after it vanished Dec. 1 in the central Idaho mountains. There were no survivors.
    
Valley County sheriff's Lt.  Dan Smith says an incoming storm may delay recovery efforts.
    
The wife of pilot Dale Smith of San Jose, Calif., says her husband's brother, Dellon Smith, was one of the private searchers who located the wreckage Friday. Janis Smith says Dellon Smith told her the plane had broken apart and was buried in snow. He told her it was obvious from the crash site that those aboard died quickly.
    
Also on board were Dale Smith's son, Daniel Smith and his wife, Sheree Smith, and daughter Amber Smith with her fiance, Jonathon Norton.
    
The plane was flying from eastern Oregon to Montana when it disappeared in mountains 150 miles northeast of Boise.
    
Authorities had suspended the official search for the plane in mid-December.
